From creating a new generation of icons like the Submersible QuarantaQuattro to a commitment to sustainable watchmaking, Panerai embarks on a journey of innovation and ideology.
For 2022, Panerai digs deeper into its dive watch DNA and begins a new story of innovation, a new commitment to sustainable watchmaking and a new generation of the icon Submersible. Continuing its spirit of innovation Panerai has launched a special limited edition Luminor Goldtech™ Calendario Perpetuo whose purchasers will be invited on a unique journey to Florence to experience Panerai heritage first-hand. But the main highlight of the new releases is the addition of a new dimension to Panerai’s popular world of Submersible watches with the QuarantaQuattro.
Join us as we get into the details of each of the new watches from Panerai.
Submersible QuarantaQuattro Collection
The Submersible QuarantaQuattro, otherwise known as 44 in English, is a nod to the Submersible’s 44mm case diameter. The new Submersible QuarantaQuattro collection features all the essential elements of the Subermisble family. These include a 300m water resistance, a unidirectional rotating bezel with metallic appliques filled with SuperLuminova and the P.900 automatic movement with three days of power reserve.
Available in three series, the Submersible QuarantaQuattro is the answer to the incessant demands of creating a smaller version of the Submersible watch.
Submersible QuarantaQuattro eSTEEL™ (PAM01289, PAM01288, and PAM01287)
Recognising the critical importance of sustainability while maintaining the brand’s established design codes, Panerai unveils the Submersible QuarantaQuattro eSTEEL™ collection. What is eSTEEL™? eSteel™ is a next-generation metal obtained from pre-consumer recycled steel scraps (up to 95%) coming from different industries, preferably from the Swiss watchmaking industry. Its production significantly reduces CO2 emissions.
The Submersible QuarantaQuattro eSTEEL™ collection is available in 44mm case sizes featuring dials in deep blue (PAM01289), grey (PAM01288) and green (PAM01287). Each of the three pieces is powered by the automatic P.900 caliber that supports a date indication and three-day power reserve. The series is available with two straps each, both in the colours of the corresponding dial. The first strap is composed of fabric made recycled PET and the second strap is made from recycled rubber.
Submersible QuarantaQuattro Carbotech™ Blu Abisso (PAM01232)
Crafted from Carbotech – a carbon fibre composite that is the lightest material used by the brand, the Submersible QuarantaQuattro Carbotech™ Blu Abisso is a unique timepiece that deserves some wrist time. The black hue of the Carbotech™ matches perfectly with the blue dial and Caoutchouc dark blue rubber strap.
Submersible QuarantaQuattro Black Dial (PAM01229)
Set with a 44m steel case and a black dial, the Submersible QuarantaQuattro (PAM01229) is a rather simple watch offering a sharp and compelling presence on the wrist. Attached to a black rubber and dark grey fabric straps, the timepiece offers a dramatic impression.
Submersible QuarantaQuattro Bianco (PAM01226)
This version of the Submersible QuarantaQuattro edition features a brilliant white dial combined with straps in a supremely versatile military green hue giving the watch a unique look.
Submersible QuarantaQuattro Luna Rossa (PAM01391)
Panerai is all set to resume its role as the Official Sponsor of the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team on the occasion of the 37th America’s Cup with the new Submersible QuarantaQuattro Luna Rossa timepiece. Limited to just 1500 pieces, this unique timepiece comes in a 44mm steel case that is engineered to withstand the rigours of ocean racing. It is designed with marine-inspired colours which include a palette of blue, white and red.
The blue sun-brushed dial is accentuated with white Super-LumiNova™ filled dots, markers and hands. Strapped to a dark blue bi-material strap accented with the red and white Luna Rossa logo gives the watch a unique touch.
Limited to 33 pieces, the Luminor Goldtech™ Calendario Perpetuo features one of the most complex complications of all time – a perpetual calendar. This complication is supported by Panerai’s automatic P.4100 movement that offers intuitive setting that requires no corrector or tools, permitting adjustments to the day, date, month and year through rotating the crown in either direction.
The 44mm Luminor case made from Panerai’s Goldtech™ material is set with an inventive smoked sapphire display that allows com visibility of the day and date discs sitting beneath the dial. Through the sapphire caseback the month, year, leap year and power reserve indicators are visible. The Luminor Goldtech™ Calendario Perpetuo is available in a black patina alligator strap and an additional black rubber second strap.
But despite all the features, what makes this watch so unique and interesting is the opportunity that comes along with the purchase of this watch. Each buyer of the Luminor Goldtech™ Calendario Perpetuo will be invited on an extraordinary journey to the seat of Panerai heritage, the city of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan countryside. Additionally, the client will also receive access to an exclusive NFT created by an artist for the occasion.
