Patravi Scubatec Black Manta
The latest special edition to join the Patravi ScubaTec family is an ode to a very special ocean dweller: the black manta ray. These gentle giants are a vision of grace as they effortlessly glide through the coastal waters they call home. The new Patravi ScubaTec Black Manta Special Edition is a COSC-certified chronometer that is in no way inferior to the sea creature that inspired it. In this spirit of sustainable values, Carl F. Bucherer has joined forces with Manta Trust, a UK-based charity with the mission of conserving the oceans and the habitat of the rare manta rays. Manta Trust is active in over 20 countries, tirelessly leading research projects and awareness campaigns on behalf of this endangered species. The Patravi ScubaTec Black Manta Special Edition is Carl F. Bucherer’s second special-edition timepiece dedicated to this cause.
