The 132-year-old Swiss watch brand, Carl F. Bucherer has added four new colours to the latest ladies’ diving watches: the Patravi ScubaTec Lady, available in a range of fashion-forward candy colours, such as Palm Tree (green), Ocean (blue), Sand (rose-beige) and Sunset (coral). These extra robust timepieces feature rubber straps in a choice of blue, green, beige and coral and boast a summery white wave pattern on the dial. Water resistance to 200 m, a unidirectional rotating bezel in steel and ceramic and an automatic movement come together in the perfect package for all adventures both on land and under water. These new additions to the Patravi ScubaTec family are reminiscent of a day spent by the sea. Thanks to the intense hues of the rubber straps, these timepieces have an unmistakable summertime look. The white dial is adorned with a curvy wave pattern, while the ceramic diver’s bezel also gleams in white. The applied indexes as well as the hands and arrow markers on the bezel are all coated with Super-LumiNova, giving them a glowing light blue hue under low lighting conditions.
The Patravi ScubaTec for women is more than just a style statement. These ladies’ watches have been crafted in the tradition of fine Swiss watchmaking – and as such are anything but prissy. The 36.5 mm stainless steel case and protected screw-down crown give the watch an increased water resistance of up to 20 bar (200 m). A unidirectional rotating bezel, Super-LumiNova coating and a rubber strap with an adjustable clasp ensures that the timepiece is perfectly equipped for lengthy aquatic excursions. The Patravi ScubaTec Lady features the CFB 1950 automatic movement, which boasts 38 hours of power reserve and powers the hour, minute and second hands as well as the date positioned at 3 o’clock.
