A Long-Term Partnership: Carl F. Bucherer and the Manta Trust
Focusing on the next generation, Carl F. Bucherer entered into its long-term partnership with the Manta Trust in 2013 and has been pleased to be able to help build solid foundations for a sustainable future for the oceans where manta rays thrive in healthy, diverse marine ecosystems. The Patravi ScubaTec Verde is the fifth watch Carl F. Bucherer has launched in partnership with the Manta Trust since 2017. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of each model was donated to the foundation, and a contribution from the sale of the Patravi ScubaTec Verde is specifically dedicated to the Manta Trust’s new floating research station project.
