Carl F. Bucherer sponsored the world premiere of the science-fiction movie in which its global ambassador is one of the lead actresses.
Carl F. Bucherer co-starred with its Global Brand Ambassador Li Bingbing in the science-fiction movie The Meg. The world debut of the movie was held at the Water Cube in Beijing on August 2 and was sponsored by Carl F. Bucherer. The actress was joined on the red carpet by the movie’s director, Jon Turteltaub, and the stars of the film, including Jason Statham, Winston Chao, Ruby Rose, and Cliff Curtis.

In the movie, Li Bingbing plays Chinese oceanographer Zhang Suyin, and wears a Carl F. Bucherer timepiece in every scene. The sporty and elegant Patravi ScubaTec diver’s watch is distinguished by its technical sophistication and high degree of reliability, even under extreme conditions, and is the perfect companion for her character in the action-packed movie.
Suyin, played by Li Bingbing, works together with Jonas Taylor (played by Jason Statham) to save a group of scientists who are trapped in the depths of the ocean and keeps them safe from a megalodon – a 75-foot prehistoric shark.

"It was very exciting and challenging. My character is a female scientist who is faced with a lot of challenges in deep waters. During filming, we had to make full use of our imagination to act out reactions and be at the peak of our physical fitness to create the best scenes. It was a great honor for me to wear a Carl F. Bucherer watch in a setting in which I was able to do things I thought I would never be able to do. When I look at my Patravi ScubaTec, I always sense a great feeling of accomplishment", said the actress about her role in the movie.
