Continuing the 70th anniversary of its glow-in-the-dark Luminor watch, Panerai releases another limited timepiece following the Luminor Marina Carbotech. In collaboration with explorer and ambassador Mike Horn, the Italian brand introduces a new model with the Submersible EcoPangaea Tourbillon GMT. Limited to just five pieces, the special-edition watch comes with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take an expedition to the Arctic with Horn himself.
With an emphasis on conservation, the watch’s 50 mm case is made with recycled high-tech steel from the 35-meter drive shaft of Horn’s sailing ship. Featuring a hand-wound caliber P.2005/T, this Submersible includes a skeletonized titanium movement, light blue details on the dial and a unidirectional EcoTitanium rotating bezel. Additional features include water-resistance up to 300 meters, a natural rubber strap with brushed steel buckle, and a sapphire glass case back with an engraved sailboat design.
Retailing for $189,000 USD the Submersible EcoPangaea Tourbillon GMT – 50 mm Mike Horn Edition will be available exclusively at Panerai boutiques.
