By TLex Carl F. Bucherer have released their first ever contemporary divers watch, the Patravi ScubaTec, which joins other models of the Patravi collection. The ScubaTec by all accounts is a nice functional and sporty looking diver with some cool eye catching details; evocative of the ocean and endowed with all the features that one would expect to find on a modern high-end divers watch . . .
Its 44.6mm (diameter) x 13.45mm (height) Stainless steel case is water-resistant to 500 meters. It is fitted with a unidirectional rotational divers bezel with a black and blue ceramic inlay with its elapsed dive-time scale marked out in bold silver numerals. The shade of blue used for the bezel and the notch on the screwdown crown was exclusively created for Carl F. Bucherer. The case is fitted with an almost 4mm thick Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides as well as an automatic HEV (Helium escape valve) making it suitable for SAT diving.
Its generously proportioned black dial offers fast and accurate reading of the time. Its hands and markers have been coated with BG W9 SuperLumiNova that glows light blue in the dark. Beneath the dial of the ScubaTec beats a CFB 1950.1 caliber, automatic C.O.S.C. certified chronometer with 26 jewels and a power reserve of 38 hours.
The caseback is engraved with a 3D effect design depicting two Batoid rays in relief. The watch comes with either a black rubber divers strap with blue detailing or an integrated steel bracelet with an adjustable divers extension so that the Patravi ScubaTec can be worn over a divers wetsuit. MSRP is circa 7000USD
