The cooperation with the Swiss Football Association (SFV) originates from the deep connection the Swiss watch manufacturer feels to its own roots. Carl F. Bucherer was founded in 1888 in Lucerne, the heart of Switzerland. Until this very day, the Swiss watch brand “Made of Lucerne” is coined and inspired by the cosmopolitan spirit of the city and its unique adjacent environment. As is true for football, everything in watchmaking revolves around time and interaction.

The SFV picked a timepiece by Carl F. Bucherer for its national players of which the Swiss watch brand developed a special edition. The Patravi ScubaTec SFV is an exclusive timepiece that reflects and supports the athletic prowess and the persistence of the team. This variation of the iconic sports watch stands out by incorporating the red color of the Switzerland national football team, using red accents that contrast with the black design. The logo of the association is resplendent on the rotating bezel.
