Panerai Launches an All New, Wide Ranging Navy SEALs Collection
For the first time ever, a new collection of Panerais made in partnership with the Navy SEALs will be available internationally, with a selection of watches offering something for professional divers, daring adventurers, and connoisseurs of finely crafted timepieces.
The Luminor Marina Navy SEALs PAM01412 is a re-edition of an iconic Panerai model in a finishing that lends every timepiece a unique character. Every 44mm Brunito steel case is finished by hand, lending a weathered look to the timepiece. The collaboration continues with two Luminor Chrono references, PAM01409 in a 44mm steel Brunito case and PAM01419 in a 44mm CarboTechTM case. The high end CarboTech comes together when thin sheets of carbon fibers are compressed at a controlled temperature under high pressure together with a high-end polymer, PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone), which binds the composite material, making it stronger and more durable.
From the Submersible collection, Panerai offers the PAM01323 features a 44m steel case and bezel, contrasting beautifully with the shaded grainy black dial. The dial is darker at the perimeter than at its center, with large dots and golden yellow color accents on each hand and the numerals in the date window, making it highly legible. Finally, Panerai introduces the PAM01402, the Experience Edition: Submersible Chrono Navy SEALs, where every watch owner will be invited to participate in an immersive thematic Special Operations Experience. Set in a 47mm steel Brunito case with a ceramic disc on the bezel and a rubber crown, the timepiece has a shaded black dial that features the ‘Navy SEALs’ inscription and target-inspired small seconds sub-dial.
