Patravi TravelTec DLC worldwide launch in Dubai
Carl F. Bucherer CEO, Sascha Moeri, unveiled the global launch of the new pre-Basel Patravi TravelTec DLC cased timepiece, with its striking black in black appeal taking center stage. This worldwide launch took place at Rivoli Group’s luxurious H Lounge located at the five-star H Hotel in Dubai. Moeri was heading a senior Carl F. Bucherer delegation that included Laurent Lecamp, Executive Vice President Sales, Yumy Pham, International Communication Manager who were also accompanied by Abraham Koshy, COO Watches Division, Rivoli Group, the Swiss brand’s retail partners in Dubai.
Three time zones combined in one watch made in an exquisite and distinctive material: the Patravi TravelTec by Carl F. Bucherer in deep matt black, is new for Baselworld 2016. The robust DLC coating transforms the GMT chronograph into a grand statement on the wrist, designed not to blend in but to impress.
Comfortable functionality, excellent readability, and technological sophistication make the Patravi TravelTec the ideal model for frequent travelers. This timepiece in imposing black, emphasizes 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 color of 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 indices and scales.
A smart core with manufacture caliber
The intelligent interplay between the case and movement makes the Patravi TravelTec 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 monopusher enables the wearer to quickly and easily set the third time zone to an eastern or western direction of travel.
