This new partnership with the Navy SEALs materializes as a capsule collection of three new Submersible watches with each taking on a shades of grey color scheme with golden yellow highlights.
The Submersible GMT Navy SEALs (PAM01323) is a 44mm satin-brushed steel watch, displaying hours, minutes, small seconds and a GMT second timezone on its smokey anthracite dial and water resistant to 300m.
Limited to 162 pieces, the Navy SEALs Carbotech Edition (PAM0124) features a 44mm Carbotech – Panerai’s propriety carbon fiber composite – case and Navy SEALs lettering on the dial.
Both the Submersible Navy SEALs Carbotech Edition and Submersible Navy SEALs Edition are powered by Panerai’s P.900/GMT automatic movement with a three-day power reserve.
The final piece – the 47mm DLC-coated Submersible Navy SEALs Experience Edition (PAM01325) – offers a 20 customers not only a unique watch, but access to “an adventure that will immerse guests in the history of the Navy SEALs and grant rare, first-hand exposure to the rigorous physical, emotional and mental demands of SEAL training”.
According to Panerai, owners of the Experience Edition will be “outfitted in authentic gear, from camouflage tactical uniforms to the MREs (Meals Ready to Eat) that SEALs eat in the field, participants will travel by helicopter and amphibious vehicles to perform exercises by SEa, Land and Air, culminating in the simulation of a historical raid. The experience concludes with a luncheon at the National UDT – Navy SEAL Museum and a commencement ceremony to honor a shared expedition.”
Underneath the watch’s forged carbon dial is Panerai’s P.9100/R flyback chronograph automatic movement with Panerai’s new Time to Target countdown complication and three-day power reserve.
Each of the Submersible Navy SEALs Experience Edition watches will be presented with NFT artworks from multidisciplinary Italian artist, Skygolpe, which will “unlock information tailored to each client’s excursion, but it will also unlock benefits, such as priority access to future initiatives, special services and events, on a rolling basis.”
