With the new Patravi ScubaTec Verde diving watch, Carl F. Bucherer celebrates its partnership with the Manta Trust.
Carl F. Bucherer has supported the Manta Trust since 2013. The Patravi ScubaTec Verde marks part of CFB’s contribution in 2023.
Over the last decade, CFB has supported the organization’s work, providing funding for ecological studies, research expeditions and marine education programs. In addition, for some years now, the Swiss watchmaker has also created special diving watches in honor of the Manta Trust, donating a portion of each timepiece’s retail value directly to the charity.
This year’s release, the Patravi ScubaTec Verde is presented in a stunning green from its lacquered dial (with intricate wave design detailing) to its matching bezel and rubber strap with a textile inlay made from recycled PET.
Its color is inspired by the intensely green waters around Isla de La Plata, a small island about 40 kilometres off the Ecuadorian coast that plays host to more than 22,000 oceanic manta rays who gather there every August and September.
Pressure resistant up to 50 bar (500 meters), Patravi ScubaTec Verde boasts water-resistant gaskets and a screw down crown along with an automatic helium valve to ensure gas escapes automatically during dives and ascents.
The thick sapphire crystal has an anti-reflective coating on both sides. Hands and index markers filled with Super-LumiNova® ensure the time is readable even at the deepest depths; a unidirectional rotating bezel also features a Super-LumiNova point for optimal orientation.
A folding clasp with fine adjustment and diving extension adds a further essential element for underwater practicality.
