At Baselworld 2011 Carl F. Bucherer will launch the newest member of the Patravi family, with a twist. The new model has a classic round case, and new complications. The manufacture CFB A1004 movement retains the brand’s signature peripheral rotor and adds an indication of the week to the big date, day and date indicators.
Baselworld 2009 marked Carl F. Bucherer’s first step into the manufacture realm with the CFB A1000 caliber with unique, patent-pending features. In 2010, two more Patravi models were introduced: the EvoTec PowerReserve and EvoTec BigDate, both in cushion-shaped cases. At Baselworld 2011, Carl F. Bucherer will present the Patravi EvoTec Calendar, the first Patravi model in a round case. The 42.6mm case is available in stainless steel or 18K rose gold, with black or silver dials and black or brown calfskin straps.
The big date at 11 confirms membership in the Patravi family, and that a manufacture CFB A1000-based movement beats inside. The small seconds are indicated by a disk, so as not to visually obstruct the indication of the weeks, which is accomplished by a pointer. The CFB A1004 includes a 53rd calendar week to avoid having to put the week calendar back in the relevant years. (On average, a year will have 53 weeks every 5.63 years. The years 2015 and 2020 will have 53 weeks).
