Therefore, generally, the watch gets the time, GMT hand, GMT ring that goes east or west, a 12 hour chronograph, and also the date. That is an impressive collection of attributes and for watch fans who adore functions, this piece does not really disappoint. The merchandise news, is it’s also useful. For those traveling, it’s indeed a handy watch. Because sometimes brands like to have complex just for the sake of being novel or getting complicated. There is absolutely no real rhyme or reason for many novel assortments of attributes aside from the fact that no one has done it earlier. I must say that for the most part Carl F. Bucherer does layout new bits with at faking any specific use or market user in mind.The Patravi TravelTec GMT FourX sort of makes the typical version appear dull compared to the I hate to say this, however, the awesome skeletonized dial with all the more intriguing material options simply interest me more. That isn’t to say the standard TravelTec GMT is not a fantastic piece. They have the identical motion and features, but instead that for serious nerds like myself it is hard to look at the FourX and then back in the typical version. Though concerning price the standard version (available in steel) provides much more bang to your buck.As of now, the FourX version only comes from this 950 palladium instance plus also a limited edition of 125 bits in 18k rose gold. That means they’re fairly ritzy, but you get a good deal more character for the additional money. The case is 46.6mm broad and a fairly hefty 15.5mm. Though thanks to brief lugs and a flat case it back wears quite smoothly.
Here is some shameless “Stallonage.” Sly dons a Carl F Bucherer Uhren Preise Replica Patravi TravelTec GMT watch during the European premier of the Expendables II movie (in Germany I think). I must admit that I am really looking forward to seeing the film – especially because Arnold will be more prominently featured in it. Hopefully he will get some battle damage to show his metallic Schwarzenegger innards.
Sylvester hasn’t had the easiest last few months as his son Sage Stallone died of what I believe was a drug overdose in LA. That’s got to be rough as I understand Stallone was a good dad to a kid that couldn’t quite standup on his own two feet. It can’t be easy living in Rambo Balboa’s shadow.
Stallone is well-known for being a serious collector of things from watches to belt buckles. He loves his gadgets and as an icon has helped make a lot of watches popular. Most notable of course was his role in getting Panerai watches popular among his peers in Hollywood. He was also one of the leaders in the “large watch” movement. The Carl F. Bucherer Patravi TravelTec GMT watch is 46mm wide and contains a base ETA movement which is modified by CFB. They call it the caliber CFB 1901 automatic chronometer movement. This model can display up to three timezones, has a chronograph, and the date. The design is an acquired taste, but I have to commend Carl F. Bucherer in releasing (what are in my opinion) watches with inherently useful complications. The movement has a lot of cool features, I am not going to discuss them all here, but if you are interested in the piece you should know that.
Stallone’s Patravi TravelTec watch is the 18k rose gold version attached to the thick calfskin leather strap. This model even has versions with diamonds on the bezel – but I don’t think that is Stallone’s style. It also isn’t cheap. Price for the Carl F. Bucherer Patravi TravelTec GMT watch in 18k rose gold is a hefty $44,000. I don’t even want to know the price on the available full 18k rose gold bracelet. My next question is what timepiece will he be wearing in the Expendables II. Another Panerai? Probably.
Would you wear the Carl F. Bucherer Patravi TravelTec Watch?
