Bouncing on the edge of innovation, the brand of Carl F Bucherer always wants to push things forward and to challenge the limits when it comes to watch manufacturing. A Carl F Bucherer watch is not for anybody to wear, it’s a timepiece that fits the wrists of those who can appreciate the artistry of watch manufacturing and the amount of talent and effort that it takes to create such a remarkable time keeping instrument.

         Out of Carl F Bucherer’s desire to shock the world of watch manufacturing it was born the new Patravi TravelTec FourX watch, an incredibly progressive timepiece that displays 3 different time-zones on one dial. This new Patravi TravelTec FourX follows on the steps of the Patravi TravelTec GMT, which was first introduced in 2006. The designers have worked really hard towards the improvement of the 2006 concept and they managed to create a better version.

         The materials used to create this Patravi TravelTec FourX watch are quite impressive and the design concept was based on choosing the finest materials to support one of the most innovative technical movements. The watch combines materials such as titanium, ceramics, rubber and last, but not least, palladium, a material discovered in 1803 that belongs to the platinum group metals. This material is a silvery white metal which is very rare and so its contribution to this design is even more appealing. The titanium, ceramics and rubber also bring their contribution to the over-all hi-tech design of the watch.

         The mechanism of the new Patravi TravelTec FourX watch represented a challenge for the watchmakers of Carl F Bucherer brand, as they were to find a suitable solution for providing a clearly visible display of the three time-zones. The solution they found is an exceptional integration of watch movement and case, which allows the three time-zones to be displayed in parallel. The construction of such timepiece wasn’t easy at all, but, as we can see, the effort was worth it.

         With a skeleton dial, the new Patravi TravelTec FourX watch seems to have no problem with showing off the beautiful automatic movement through the transparent dial. The watch also displays a date window featuring numerals that are milled out of the date rim and remain illegible until they are presented by contrast against a red background in the date window. This watch has it all in terms of traveling and of providing the best time-information in just one watch. The three different time-zones displayed on this magnificent Patravi TravelTec FourX watch are of a real help to business men, presidents or just relatives and friends who usually telephone to different time-zones.

         Although its functionality is undisputable, we cannot overlook its amazingly beautiful design that has impressed Carl F Bucherer’s fans all over the world. Applauded for its innovative approach, this new Carl F Bucherer Patravi TravelTec FourX appears to be the wristwatch on everybody’s lips this year.
