The famous Patravi ScubaTec Manta Special Edition , delivered the previous summer and explored beforehand, was Carl F. Bucherer ‘s second uncommon version jump watch to help the Manta Trust noble cause ( the first one is here ). As of April 2020, another ScubaTec model, decked out on the whole black plunging gear without any mantas on the dial, will join the positions of this superior jumper family. Albeit the strong case and specialized specifications are indistinguishable from the former model, a few features have been modified to accomplish the striking black look. Meet the new Carl F. Bucherer Patravi ScubaTec Black.
Housed in a super light titanium case, the new Patravi ScubaTec Black has been blessed to receive a matte black DLC covering to beef up its scratch-obstruction and give it a more secrecy, mission-prepared look. At practically 45mm in distance across and 13.45mm in tallness, the case compares to the components of a vigorous jump watch, which is fit for fathoming profundities of up to 500 meters. The unidirectional pivoting jump bezel with its knurled hour long scale additionally has a matte black DLC covering and a black clay trim. The screw-down crown and helium get away from valve at 8 o’clock show a cleaned finish to appear differently in relation to the prevalent presence of matte surfaces. Indeed, even the short, blocky carries feature an angled cleaned edge.
Unlike the Manta Special Edition , which made its presentation in 2017, the most recent Patravi Scubatec Black jumper doesn’t feature the manta beams on the dial: all things considered, the dial is designed with an adapted wave design. The unmistakable wedge-formed hour markers stand apart intensely against the black foundation for ideal decipherability and are treated with a lot of Super-LumiNova that sparkles a cool blue tone in obscurity. The thick hands are additionally obvious. As you would anticipate from a professional jumper, the exceedingly significant minutes hand used to time submersions is completely shrouded in lume while the hour and focal seconds hands just have lume at their tips. Albeit not a fundamental feature on a plunge watch, the date window situated at 3 o’clock remains fairly unobtrusive.
Reliable programmed movement
A fixed black caseback, adorned with two manta beams in the middle, secures the programmed type CFB 1950-1 (in view of the ETA-2824) showing the hours, minutes, seconds and the date. The accuracy of this attempted and-tried type is certified by COSC, the Swiss chronometer testing establishment. Running at 28,800 vibrations each hour, its fairly restricted force save is of 38 hours when fully wound.
Straps and price
Although this watch is certainly not a Black Manta Special Edition intended to raise funds for the Manta Trust, the black lash accompanying the watch is made of a combination of elastic and fabric produced using 100% reused PET plastic containers recuperated from the sea. As another option, a straightforward decorated black elastic tie is likewise accessible. The Carl F.
