Launch of a Limited-Edition Timepiece
An exclusive timepiece was launched to honor the collaboration with JD.com: the Patravi ScubaTec Lady Limited Edition – available only at JD.com. The watch is limited to 888 pieces, and a particularly eye-catching feature is the rotating ceramic bezel in red, inspired by JD.com’s corporate color. The wave pattern dial is adorned with three diamonds. Beyond that, in addition to the white rubber strap, the watch also comes with an additional red rubber strap that can be fitted free of charge at a Harmony service center of the owner’s choice at any time.
The Patravi ScubaTec is a watch made for diving and underwater exploration of every kind. In a sturdy case with red highlights and sporty functions, the Patravi ScubaTec is the perfect companion underwater or on land. Carl F. Bucherer has sponsored the Manta Trust, a charity that works to protect the endangered manta ray, for many years. As a sign of the company’s commitment, two of these impressive creatures are engraved on the back of every Patravi ScubaTec case. The Patravi ScubaTec is powered by the automatic CFB 1950 movement, which keeps the time precisely and reliably.
