At Baselworld 2015 Carl F. Bucherer will introduce the Patravi ScubaTec dive watch in rose gold with a ceramic bezel insert and black-coated titanium accents.
Styled with the chunky, aggressive look typically of many dive watches, the Carl F. Bucherer Patravi ScubaTec is now available in rose gold. Containing nearly a quarter pound of gold and measuring 44.6 mm in diameter, this is a large timepiece. The bezel is ceramic in black and blue, with the crown guard and case back in black-coated titanium. Two manta rays are sculpted in relief on the case back, a reference to the Manta Trust, a charity supported by Carl F. Bucherer that aids conservation of manta rays.
Rated to 500 m, the case has a helium release valve is at eight o’clock. Inside is an ETA-sourced, automatic movement. The Patravi ScubaTec in rose gold will cost 23,700 Swiss francs.
Carl F. Bucherer is unusual as it is a subsidiary of Bucherer, a major watch retailer headquartered in Switzerland that claims to offer the largest selection of Rolex watches anywhere in the world. Though essentially a house brand of a watch retailer, Carl F. Bucherer is a well developed brand in itself, with several manufacturing facilities in Switzerland, including the movement specialist formerly known as THA in St. Croix.
And thanks to Bucherer’s strong network in Europe, especially in Switzerland and Germany, as well as an effort to market its brand in Asia, Carl F. Bucherer has developed into the most global of retailer house brands.Back to top.
