Carl F.Bucherer Patravi TravelTec FourX Limited Edition
Rose gold, titanium, ceramic and rubber: these four very different materials add yet another dimension to the fourth dimension of time: exclusivity.
In the Patravi TravelTec FourX Limited Edition model, the watchmakers at Carl F. Bucherer bring together not only different time zones but also different worlds – worlds of exquisite materials.
Movement and case integrated for the first time
The design of the Patravi TravelTec, first launched in 2006, created entirely new challenges for engineers, watchmakers and designers, since the specification required the clear and simultaneous indication of three time zones, necessitating for the first time ever the integration of movement and case. In the Patravi TravelTec, the case contains part of the time-zone selection mechanism, which is controlled in two directions by means of a single push-piece.The process can even be observed through a side-window.
Extremely easy to use, the direction of travel can be pre-selected on the multifunctional push-piece at 10 o’clock and each push causes a jump to the next time zone, the flange with its imprinted 24-hour scale turning in either direction to guarantee that the red hours hand always shows the correct local time.
Une nouvelle dimension: 1 montre, 3 fuseaux horaires, 4 matériaux.
The Patravi TravelTec is suitable both for frequent flyers and for those who communicate with people all over the world. Those entering another time zone will prefer to make an adjustment at once, moving the wedge-shaped hours-hand forward or backward an hour at a time. Those who frequently need to make calls to other time zones will value the combination of the 24-hours hand and the patented Patravi TravelTec mechanism, which allows selection of the time zone of the person called to see at a glance whether it is day or night there.
Luxury and high tech combined
As far as its “instrument look” is concerned, the Patravi TravelTec FourX Limited Edition has nothing to hide. For this reason, it was given a skeletonized dial allowing a free view of the gearing of the painstakingly decorated automatic movement. The technical look of the overall appearance is reinforced by the colors: matt black contrasts with noble rose gold, and the essential information on the dial stands out in bright red.
The new Patravi TravelTec FourX is a Limited Edition of 125. This timepiece is designed as a tribute Carl F. Bucherer. The founding year of his first watchmaking business is engraved on the watch’s case back. So the journey through time (zones) can begin.
