It’s just March, however Panerai has just clarified that 2019 is unequivocally about the plunge watch. The professional evaluation Submersible jump watch to be explicit, which this year becomes an independent assortment in its own right. Close by the new models, Panerai is likewise offering interesting ‘encounters’ identified with the universe of the Submersible. These encounters are solely accessible to the individuals who buy one of the exceptional, restricted edition models inside the new reach. The Panerai Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Edition PAM00983 we are looking at today, for instance, is restricted to only 15 pieces and comes complete with a once in a blue moon experience.
Who Is Guillaume Néry?
You might be thinking that we’ve just expounded on the new Panerai Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Edition. Also, you would be correct. Notwithstanding, that was the non-restricted PAM00982, which you can find out about here . Along these lines, exactly who is Guillaume Néry and why has Panerai committed not one but rather two watches to him?
If you’re a no-nonsense plunging devotee, the name may as of now be recognizable to you. Assuming be that as it may, you’re similar to me, and like to invest the greater part of your recreation energy in the water skimming about in the shallows, a touch of foundation is presumably useful. As you would have speculated as of now from setting, Néry is a professional jumper. All the more precisely, he is a numerous world record French free-plunging champion. Néry and his accomplice Julie Gautier have likewise become fairly celebrated for their extraordinary submerged movies . There’s simply something hauntingly excellent about watching Néry plunge into a dark void with no equipment.
It’s not difficult to see then why he would be an excellent diplomat for the brand’s professional evaluation jump watch. In contrast to other brand ministers, nonetheless, Néry is loaning something beyond his name and his standing to these new models. All things considered, he has a rather exceptional involvement with store for the fifteen people who figure out how to buy the restricted edition model. Those lucky few will be welcome to go along with him on an uncommon whale watching make a plunge the seas encompassing his home on the pleasant South Pacific island of Mo’orea, in French Polynesia.
Presumably, every one of the fifteen will decide to wear their new Panerai Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Editions to accompany them on this once in a blue moon insight. That is unquestionably the thing I’d do. Not exclusively is it completely fit to such a climate, however it additionally looks absolutely badass.
Before I go any further; indeed, the case is 47mm and, indeed, that is apparently too enormous for some wrists. Panerai has never been tied in with making little watches however, nor has it been tied in with making watches for everybody. The brand is glad for its Italian military legacy and that shows through unequivocally in its plan DNA. This is intended to be a utilitarian apparatus watch, and somewhat, size does matter.
Like the non-restricted form, the case – including the extraordinarily engraved caseback – is produced using lightweight titanium. This exceptional edition, notwithstanding, gets a dark DLC covering all finished, giving it a subtle appearance. The unidirectional turning bezel utilized for tracking passed time is additionally in dark DLC-covered titanium and highlights a matte dark clay embed with an iridescent graduated scale.
It’s comfortable on the wrist regardless of its noteworthy size, on account of the utilization of lightweight titanium. On the right-hand side of the case, Panerai’s brand name crown watch guarantees the crown can’t be unintentionally gotten to during a jump. On the contrary side are the two screw-in pushers at 8 and 10 o’clock for controlling the flyback chronograph. Engraved on the strong screw caseback is a delivering of Guillaume Néry free-plunging, alongside his signature and the profundity of his last record jump: 126 meters, accomplished with a solitary breath.
What truly grabbed my attention about this watch however is the dial. I very like the shark dim shading plan on the non-restricted form yet this finished inclination blue and dark dial is truly something different. Not exclusively is it profoundly decipherable, however it is likewise exceptionally appealing. As indicated by Panerai, the shading plan was propelled by the oceans of Polynesia, thus the utilization of this strange turquoise blue for the part ring, chronograph seconds hand and a portion of the content on the dial. What makes it for me however is the distinct difference against the darkness of the case. This simply makes the dial truly fly in my opinion.
Hours and minutes are shown midway, similar to the chronograph seconds (turquoise blue hand) and minutes. Running seconds are appeared on the sub-dial at 9 o’clock and slipped by chronograph hours are tallied at 3 o’clock. All the hands (except for the focal chronograph ones) have lume, and intelligibility is further improved in low-light conditions because of applied brilliant white dabs and indexes.
Inside is a similar Panerai P.9100 type found in the non-restricted model. This programmed development, executed completely in-house, beats at 28,800vph and offers a force save of 72 hours kindness of its two-barrel setup. It’s likewise outfitted with a gadget for focusing the seconds hand to empower ideal synchronization with a reference signal.

The new PAM00983 comes on a Panerai customized dark elastic lash with a trapezoidal titanium clasp. Intended to be worn in the water for significant stretches of time, it’s comfortable on the wrist. The tie is likely not actually appropriate for office clothing, yet then again neither is this watch.
Price & availability
The cost of the 15-piece restricted edition Panerai Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Edition PAM00983 is EUR 38,900, which is simply over twofold the expense of the non-restricted variant. I can envision this will be a sticking point for certain individuals given that the distinctions are altogether simply restorative. In actuality however, what you’re truly paying extra for is the remarkable involvement in Guillaume Néry. Whether that will be sufficient to persuade jumping aficionados to leave behind the additional cash stays not yet clear. Be that as it may, it is in fact one of a kind, cool and a strong move from Panerai.
