This year, at the SIHH 2019, the primary focal point of Panerai will be on the Submersible watch – an intense and simple move to pull together the brand on the plunging scene. The first of the watches to be presented is a “militarized” version of the great (and shockingly convincing) Submersible Carbotech . However, that’s presumably not by any means the only thing that will catch your eye on the grounds that Panerai is presenting an uncommon something in the box… In one word: insight. Meet the new Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech PAM00961 – and the additional shock in the box.
Before we uncover the astonishment, let’s investigate the watch. The new Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech PAM00961 isn’t completely new to us however must be viewed as a variation on the existing PAM00616, a watch that we broadly looked into and tried – and a watch that convinced us for being tough, engaged and considerably more comfortable that it might have been given its massive proportions. This most recent version comes with another dial and new shading codes. Not any more blue accents yet military green and the words “MARINA MILITARE” imprinted on the dial.
The instance of the Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech PAM00961 depends on the 47mm case size and construction we’ve seen on the past Carbotech. This material, which was nicknamed “Camo Wetsuit for Stealth Commandos” by our creator Rebecca (credit for that name), is really an exclusive carbon composite bringing about a lopsided matte dark appearance with a trademark Damascene steel or marbled effect. The case, the bezel and the extension are completely produced using Carbotech. Produced with flimsy sheets of carbon strands, which are then compressed at high pressing factor with a very good quality polymer (PEEK) to tie the composite material, Carbotech is stronger and more tough than most carbon filaments. Indeed, even better, no two cases can at any point be the same.
For this new PAM00961 version, the dial additionally depends on Carbon, with an appropriate camouflage design. All the lists, with a somewhat unexpected design in comparison to the 616, are covered with a khaki green shade of iridescence, just as the hands – again for a military look. The dial highlights hours and minutes in the middle, a little seconds counter at 9 o’clock and a date at 3 o’clock. The last touch is given by a coordinating military green elastic tie, which honestly gives a hearty look to this Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech.
Now on to the significant things to think about this PAM00961. Panerai needs to zero in on two things with its upcoming watches. In the first place, exclusivity. Subsequently, this watch is a restricted edition of only 33 pieces diminishing the odds that your neighbour has a similar model. Then, experience. This watch has really been made with Comsubin, the Diving and Commando Group of the Italian Navy – and its logo can be seen on the back. However, that’s not all.
In addition to the watch, future proprietors will actually want to appreciate an interesting encounter by taking part in an instructional course with Comsubin individuals. Scarcely anyone who isn’t an individual from this first class commando of frogmen can partake in this insight, which Panerai is offering solely to its most passionate customers. This additionally clarifies why it is restricted to 33 pieces.
The Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech PAM00961 will be officially revealed in the coming days and its cost is normal at EUR 39,900 – including the plunging experience.
A non-restricted edition without the experience and white records rather than khaki green – ref. PAM00979 – will likewise be accessible at EUR 19,900. More subtleties at www.panerai.com .
