Basel Preview: Carl F. Bucherer Patravi TravelTec Black

Carl F. Bucherer presents the Patravi TravelTec Black at this year’s Baselworld.

The crystalline carbon coating, applied in layers, has a structure similar to that of diamond. This guarantees a continued intensity of color over time, as well as exceptional scratch-resistance and resistance to shocks.

In addition to its chronograph function, the TravelTec Black displays a triple time zone. To achieve this, the watchmakers have merged the COSC-certified movement with the case: a patented pusher at 10 o’clock pivots an inner bezel, which is graduated for the third time zone over 24 hours.

The interplay between the case and movement makes the Patravi TravelTec a superb travel companion. It is 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, while the third time zone is displayed via a red 24 hour hand.
