Panerai reveals limited Submersible S Brabus Blue Shadow Edition

For the second time, Panerai has joined forces with car and boat builder Brabus to create a limited-edition luxury sports timepiece, this time in the Submersible S Brabus Blue Shadow Edition. Matching the Brabus Shadow 900 Deep Blue luxury day-boat, which was launched at the 2022 Palma International Boat Show earlier this month, the debutante delights with an array of cool colors and materials. For instance, blue Super-LumiNova coating on the indices and hands make for striking accents that are highly legible at the same time.

Water-resistant to 300 meters, the diver’s watch is powered by the skeletonized automatic manufacture caliber P.4001/S and features a second time zone including an A.M./P.M. indication. On the rear side, a power reserve indicator comes to life through the exhibition case back.

Limited to 200 pieces, the timepiece sets sail in a 47-mm titanium case made using a 3D printing process. It is equipped with a unidirectional rotating bezel and a crown protection lever made of Carbotech, a material based on carbon fiber that boasts not only a unique pattern but offers durability, lightness, and high resistance to corrosion. As is de rigueur at Panerai, the power reserve is 72 hours or three days, respectively, thanks to two spring barrels. It is wound by an oscillating rotor made of tungsten, a shiny, high-density metal.

The Submersible S Brabus Blue Shadow Edition comes with two straps, a bi-material option combining black rubber and leather, and a second in deep blue rubber. It retails for $49,200.
