Panerai Submersible S Brabus Black Ops Edition
The Panerai watch brand is known for creating marine-inspired luxury watches incorporated into iconic cases. The passion for watches began early in 1860, when Giovanni Panerai opened a watch boutique and repair shop, but also dedicated part of the space to the city’s first watchmaking school. It began its beginnings as a marine-focused watch brand in the 1950s when the Italian Navy began issuing the first Radiomir at a time when underwater conditions were extreme. Fast forwarding over 70 years, Panerai is delighted to have partnered with BRABUS marine / auto performance professionals on a commemorative watch for the release of the new Shadow 900 Black Ops Edition superboat. The two luxury goods share similarities in terms of design, style, technology and performance. With a common interest in water, the partnership between Panerai and BRABUS turns out to be a perfect match.
The new Panerai Submersible S Brabus Black Ops Edition is the first version of the new partnership, which is styled to perfectly complement the all-new Brabus Shadow 900 Black Ops. The new marine-inspired watch features a handcrafted 47mm case by Carbotech, which is used on the Shadow 900 Black Ops to provide a lightweight feel and increased durability. Under its clear sapphire crystal, a skeleton dial allows a closer look at the inner workings of the Submersible S. The dial displays a multitude of functions including hours, minutes, seconds, polarized date, GMT, am / pm indicator, power reserve, and the seconds are reset. The Brabus logo is also prominently displayed on the dial, where it is stamped on the balance wheel located at the 7 o’clock position. The new Panerai x Brabus collaboration watch is powered by the brand’s P.4001 / S automatic mechanical movement, which offers an astonishing 3-day power reserve. The back case features branded logo engravings to signify the special collaboration. The theme of functionality is complete on the Submersible S, with a Gray Rubber strap with Anthracite stitching and an embossed Brabus logo. The stealthy styling of the Panerai Submersible S Brabus Black Ops Edition perfectly complements the Brabus Shadow 900 Black Ops superboat.
The Panerai Submersible S Brabus Black Ops Edition is the perfect addition to any collection because of its rich heritage of being an everyday functional watch. Its unique design sets it apart from all other timepieces on the market, and with a production line of just 100 pieces, you are sure to be one of the lucky few to own. Besides exceptional design and exclusivity, the new Panerai x Brabus timepiece has a story attached to it, the story of the first product launch of a partnership. The all-new Panerai Submersible S Brabus Black Ops Edition is currently available from an authorized dealer for $ 58,800.
