CFB A1000 and the Patravi Evotec: The Evolution of Revolution
Without doubt, the Patravi EvoTec DayDate is just the first step towards a new era in watchmaking. Exactly ninety years after its first watch was released, Carl F. Bucherer is proud to present a masterpiece of watchmaking art that demonstrates what entrepreneurial courage, a wealth of original ideas, craftsmanship, and technical skill are capable of achieving seven hundred years after the art of measuring mechanical time was first discovered.
A new – one might even say revolutionary – chapter in the history of watchmaking began at Carl F. Bucherer in 2005. It was at this time that a momentous decision was taken to crown the company’s watchmaking history with a caliber developed and produced by the company itself. Carl F. Bucherer insisted on creating something new in the form of an automatic movement equipped with a wealth of unique design features.
At the heart of the EvoTec is the CFB A1000 movement, the management and technical staff of Carl F. Bucherer thought far into the future. The most important characteristic of the CFB A1000 is its skillful synthesis of conventional and innovative elements. The movement is a reliable high-quality platform for useful additional functions that will delight lovers of fine mechanical watches over the coming years.
In the CFB A1000 caliber, the innovative rotor runs around the entire periphery of the movement thanks to a mounting that is regarded by watchmakers as being one of the most demanding and challenging creations of all. The Dynamic Shock Absorption system protects the watch against impact and the “Diamond-Like Carbon” surface provides an extremely high level of resistance to wear and tear.
