To mark the world's biggest soccer event, Lucerne watch manufacturer Carl F. Bucherer presents the Swiss national football team with a timepiece that reflects the fascination exerted by the beautiful game.

This summer promises to be a special one. For months now, soccer fans have been looking forward to the excitement and surprises offered by one of the greatest sporting events of them all. Because when it comes to thrills, enthusiasm and sheer partisan commitment, nothing quite equals the World Cup. And that enthusiasm is shared by premium watch brand Carl F. Bucherer. Now, as an expression of its love of sport and loyalty to the Swiss national team, the Lucerne-based watch manufacturer is proud to unveil a special model: the Patravi ScubaTec, a thoroughbred sports watch that was developed especially for the Swiss soccer team and officially presented on May 27.

Patravi ScubaTec SFV

In a striking combination of black and red, the limited sports model is equipped with a wealth of fascinating features: engravings of various footballers are visible on the pleochroic dial, while the logo of the Swiss Football Association – the SFV – makes the watch an unmistakable hallmark of the brand. With all the sophisticated technology of a top-quality diver's watch, including integrated strap adjustment, automatic helium valve and unidirectional rotating bezel, the Patravi ScubaTec SFV Special Edition is the ideal sports watch both above and below the surface. The robust rubber strap and eye-catching stainless-steel bezel with black and red ceramic inserts endow the extraordinary timepiece with its unmistakably sporting character. On the case back of this outstanding special edition is another exclusive and individual detail: an intricate engraving of a football together with the name of the player to whom the watch belongs. Because, as part of a drive to strengthen and motivate the entire national team, each player will be presented with his own personal Patravi ScubaTec SFV Special Edition.

At a press conference held on May 27 and attended by distinguished guests from the worlds of football and watchmaking, three of the Swiss players, representing the entire team, received their own personal special editions. A panel discussion following the presentation led by radio presenter Andy Wolf raised lots of thought-provoking questions about watches and sport.

Equipped with the perfect wristwatch for a sporting occasion, and buoyed up by their unlimited commitment and love of the game, the Swiss national team is now ready for anything. Let the Brazilian adventure begin.

The watch will be available in stores from June.
