Exotic boats and fine handcrafted timepieces complement each other in a similar way that salt and pepper do. They just work. In many cases, watch manufacturers create pieces that tailor to the exotic marine industry and even specific boats altogether. Makes and Movements will be selecting spectacular products available through duPont Registry and pairing them with current or pre-released watches. The diversity of both the vehicles and timepieces will shed light on different brands and help educated on new areas of each industry.
Panerai Submersible S Brabus Black Ops Edition
The Panerai watch brand is known for creating luxury timepieces with marine inspiration incorporated into iconic case designs. The passion for watches began at an early time in 1860, when Giovanni Panerai opened a watch shop and repair shop but also dedicated a portion of the space to act as the city’s first watch-making school. It began its start as a marine-focused watch brand in the ‘50s when the Italian Navy started issuing the first Radiomir during times when underwater conditions were extreme. Fast forward 70+ years, Panerai is excited to have partnered with the marine/auto performance professionals at BRABUS on a commemorative watch for the release of the new Shadow 900 Black Ops Edition super-boat. The two luxury products share similarities in design, styling, technology, and performance. With a common interest in the water, the partnership between Panerai and BRABUS proves to be a perfect match.
The new Panerai Submersible S Brabus Black Ops Edition is the first release from the new partnership, which is style to complement the all-new Brabus Shadow 900 Black Ops perfectly. The new marine-inspired timepiece presents a 47mm case design handcrafted from Carbotech, which is used on the Shadow 900 Black Ops to provide a lightweight feel with added strength. Beneath its clear sapphire crystal, a skeleton dial allows for 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 seconds reset. The Brabus logo is also highlighted on the dial, where it is stamped on the balance wheel located at the 7 o’clock position. Powering the new Panerai x Brabus collaboration watch is the brand’s in-house P.4001/S Automatic Mechanical movement, which provides an astonishing 3-day power reserve. The back case features branded logo engravings to signifying the special collaboration. The theme of functionality is complete on the Submersible S, with a Caoutchouc Grey strap with Anthracite stitching and a stamped Brabus logo. The stealth styling of the Panerai Submersible S Brabus Black Ops Edition perfectly complements the Brabus Shadow 900 Black Ops super-boat.
