Precision and functionality are perfectly combined in the casual look of this timepiece: the CFB 1950.1 automatic movement - COSC certified - has been integrated into a stainless steel 44.6 mm case. To ensure safe measurement of dive duration, the bezel of the Patravi ScubaTec can only be rotated counterclockwise, so that the diver’s safety remains guaranteed in the event of accidental manipulation. Even in murky waters the diver can still read the time thanks to a special luminous coating (Super-LumiNova), which glows light blue in the dark. The white dial is protected by a sapphire crystal almost 4 mm thick. A helium valve ensures that the gas escapes automatically without damaging the case when the diver is ascending and descending in the diving bell.

The glowing blue markers are emblematic of the sea, as are the markings on the first quarter of the bezel and the notch of the same color on the crown. A further design detail is found on the case back, where a relief of two manta rays has been incorporated with a 3-D effect.

The watch is fitted with a black & blue rubber strap, or a stainless steel strap, equipped with a stainless steel diving lock.
