Deep Dive: Panerai Reimagines Its Iconic Diver’s Model for SIHH 2019

Panerai Submersible 42mm PAM00959

Panerai sails through this year’s SIHH with new takes on its iconic Submersible model. This year, the Italian watch manufacturer best known for creating military-grade timepieces contrasts a subdued color story with playing with various materials for its best-selling dive watch.

Here are some of the highlights unveiled at Geneva:

Panerai Submersible 42mm PAM00959

Bigger doesn’t always mean better: The PAM 00959 stands out from the group thanks to its being a 42mm in a collection full of 47mm diameters, with the decrease in size designed to be more wearable for smaller wrists. The blue ceramic bezel, complemented by a blue rubber dial, pops against the brushed steel case, with a dial inspired by shark skin. Powered by the OP XXXIV calibre, this piece—water resistant to 300m—may be diminutive, but performs just as well as the big boys. Sick of blue? The PAM00959 also comes in sleek black.

How does one actually make a Submersible better? Here’s one way: integrate a brand-new, patented material. One of the many products of Panerai’s spirit of innovation, BMG-TECH™ is a bulk metallic glass, made to withstand the elements with its heightened resistance to corrosion, external shock, and magnetic fields, making it an ideal case material for watches made for an active Paneristi lifestyle. Inside, this sleek stunner features an automatic P.9010 Panerai-made calibre, a rubber strap, three-day power reserve, and is, of course, water resistant to 300m.

After becoming the official sponsor of Luna Rossa Challenge, Panerai created a watch inspired by materials used on the Italian sailing team’s boat. The carbotech case, which houses a P.9010 calibre, echoes the material used on the hull of the Luna Rossa’s AC75. The caseback showcases the yacht, along with the team’s logo and the America’s Cup profile. Another wonderful detail is in the textured dial, which features actual pieces of the Luna Rossa sail.

Panerai Submersible Guillame Néry Edition PAM00983

If you’re someone who loves free-diving, this edition might be calling your name. Inspired by free-diving champion and world record-breaker Guillaume Néry, this edition features a unique, commemorative engraving of Néry’s signature, along with his final record (126 meters). It’s also important to note that this particular black and turquoise model, of which only 15 pieces were made, boasts of a titanium case coated with a layer of Diamond-Like-Carbon—making it all the more resistant to scratches—a luminous blue dial, chronograph, and P.9100 calibre. Oh, and one more thing: each buyer will be given the exclusive opportunity to dive with Néry himself.

Panerai Submersible Mike Horn Edition PAM00984

Inspired by legendary explorer, Panerai ambassador, and environmentalist Mike Horn, this Submersible was inspired by the adventurer’s own sense of sustainability and environmental responsibility. With the case made from EcoTitanium™—made from recycled titanium—and the strap made from recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate), the manufacture strove to minimize its impact on the environment without compromising quality. Limited to 19 pieces, purchasing this piece also offers its owners the unique opportunity to train with Horn in the Arctic.

We’ll cut to the chase with this one. Like the two previous watches, this watch also gives its 33 owners a once-in-a-lifetime experience: Brushing shoulders with the Comsubin, the diving and commando group of the Italian Navy, during a unique and exclusive training session. As for the watch itself? It’s as tough as the unit that inspired it: a carbotech case houses an automatic P.9010 calibre, while an engraved titanium caseback displays the unit’s emblem. A beautiful camouflage-inspired dial complements the army green strap.
