Carl F. Bucherer For adventurers with style

Carl F. Bucherer’s latest diver’s watch is a true action hero ready for adventure: above or underwater, during outdoor action, and in everyday life.

The design

This powerhouse doesn’t need a double for its stunts. The new Patravi ScubaTec Black features impressive resilience, technology, and functionality. Its ultra-light 44.6 mm titanium case has a matte black DLC coating, as does the unidirectional rotating bezel. The bezel is also equipped with scratch-resistant ceramic, a 60-minute scale, and luminous markers. The black, finely structured dial is adorned with black indices with an ample coating of Super- LumiNova. Their luminescent blue gives the wearer the time of day even in the dark. The hour, minute, and second hands also have this tried-and-true luminous coating. They are accompanied by a date window at 3 o’clock.

The new version’s design is not the only thing inspired by the Black Manta Special Edition. This model also matches the Special Edition’s sustainability. The ScubaTec Black Manta Special Edition is dedicated to protecting the oceans and to the brand’s partnership with the Manta Trust charitable organization. The watchmaker has been cooperating with the Manta Trust for many years to help conserve manta rays and their habitats. The idea of sustainability, which Carl F. Bucherer supports, is also expressed in the new version. A black rubber strap with fabric made of 100% recycled plastic bottles removed from the ocean rounds out the sporty, elegant look.

The Mechanics

With its screw-down crown and automatic helium release valve, it is ideal for underwater adventures – as evidenced by its water-resistance to 50 bar (500 m). It is reliably powered by the CFB 1950.1 caliber automatic movement with a power reserve of 38 hours. Its precision has been officially confirmed by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC) independent Swiss chronometer testing institute. Each watch is accompanied by an individual COSC certificate.


The new Patravi ScubaTec Black joins an impressive collection of extremely water-friendly timepieces. In addition to the 2019 Black Manta Special Edition, the collection features other men’s models in blue or black as well as a range of colorful timepieces for women. They all earn high marks for precision and resilience – in the spirit of traditional “Made of Lucerne” watchmaking heritage.
