My first Carl Bucherer

This is the Patravi ScubaTec, currently the most popular model in their line-up. 44.6mm steel, water resistant to 500 meters. A worthy alternative to the Rolex Sub and Omega Planet Ocean - if you’re fine with the movement, which is a COSC certified ETA 2892, top grade (not an issue for me in this price segment).
A robustly built daily wearer that exceeds expectations. A fresh design that is highly ergonomic, very comfortable and strong wrist presence. The dial features a fish scale pattern, the bracelet has both a micro adjustment AND a fold out diver s extension.
I’m not familiar with this brand but I must say the build quality and strong design language (a closer look would show the multiple facets of the design) is a revelation

Pretty bold and cool diver [nt]

Thanks, this has to do with the Mantra Trust

which is a fund dedicated to wildlife at sea. According to the brand s website.
By the way I forgot to mention the watch also has an automatic helium release valve

Thanks info. 🤗

The first and not the last. Maybe.

This said, where is my part to get a new C F Bucherer?
Simply, i have a list that i worked chronologically way.
A change in my list can put a C F Bucherer some places in the front.
Then chose a model, and maybe it holds the place.
I do not know which model.
So it is no hard yes or hard no, but certainly they have some catchy watches, evidence is penang with his ScubaTec, a catchy and original model name.

I shake off some Omega fanboy feathers, others shake off some Rolex fanboy feathers to accept what others have to offer in watches. It’s a proces you had done.

The Eta heart. For me not a huge hurdle. A friend said, it makes a service of a watch easier, finding parts, rather than struggling with an unique watch to find someone that can service your watch.

Be original is also a mark i see in a depth rate of 500meters.

Thanks, I’ve been wearing for a week

and so far, the movement is just fine. /- around 5 seconds a day

Keep us informed

Other than the title, i searched for the availability of the brand.
I know one AD in my country.
Not much traders advert with the brand.
Quite rare brand. An independent. Not alone, telling these brands sit maybe in the same boat, Vulcain, Roamer, Chronoswiss.

Bucherers own lineup of watches doesnt get enough credit for sure. Much Better then Wempes, actually.

And you choose an interesting piece, congratulations!

Definitely priced competitively...

Less $ than the GP Seahawk but as distinctive...pretty much comes down to taste / wearing venue. I think it’s very snazzy but still a diver! 😎🤙🏻

I like it. Excellent watch. [nt]
