Carl F. Bucherer PatraviTravelTec Black DLC
Equipped with a chronograph and three time zones, The PatraviTravelTec by Carl F. Bucherer is an ultimate watch for global travellers. Now the Swiss luxury watch brand presents a new deep matt black version of this popular GMT chronograph.
To be unveiled at Baselworld jewellery and watch fair in 2016, the PatraviTravelTe DLC is an impressive traveller’s watch. The Swiss watchmaker completely immerses the model in imposing black, emphasizing the diamond-like-carbon finish on the stainless steel case and wristband.
The DLC finish elaborately applied in a multi-stage process fully embraces the durability and lightness of carbon. The wafer-thin, diamond-like crystalline carbon structure ensures the watch is particularly scratch-resistant and highly shock absorbent. The compelling deep matt black colorof this timepiece is created by the unique blend of carbon material. The striking design is rounded off with a black dial offering a clear display of contrasting light-colored totalizators, indices, and scales.
The intelligent interplay between the case and movement makes the PatraviTravelTec a superb travel companion able to display three time zones simultaneously. Two time zones are visible on the dial thanks to the sophisticated functions of the own chronometer-certified CFB 1901.1 caliber. The third time zone is displayed via a red 24 hour-hand on a rotating bezel. The patented mono-pusher enables the wearer to quickly and easily set the third time zone to an eastern or western direction of travel.
