Bucherer Patravi Traveltec Black
Carl F. Bucherer delivers a timepiece that is finished to the highest standard. First the exterior: the stainless steel case benefits from a DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating that confers a compelling, deep mat black aspect. This crystalline carbon coating, applied in layers, has a structure similar to that of diamond. This guarantees a continued intensity of colour over time, as well as exceptional scratch-resistance and resistance to shocks. As for the movement, in addition to a chronograph function, the TravelTec Black displays a triple time zone. To achieve this, the watchmakers have literally 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 other two time zones are displayed on the dial.
