Panerai and BRABUS Add to their Partnership Legacy with New Blue Shadow Edition
Panerai and Brabus present their second exclusive collaboration timepiece at the 2022 Palma International Boat Show.
United by deeply rooted legacies as well as shared passions for marine high-performance, expert Italian watchmaker, Panerai, continues its partnership with world renowned luxury mobility brand, BRABUS, with the creation of the Panerai Submersible S BRABUS Blue Shadow Edition. The limited-edition dive watch offers the best each brand has to offer in its design and functionality, underlined by authentic Swiss watchmaking tradition, bold design and confident dependability. This watch is designed to be worn on the waves.
The Panerai Submersible S BRABUS Blue Shadow Edition is a movement for adventures and enthusiasts. It is a clear evolution of is predecessor yet it has a clear and distinctive identity of its own.
The Panerai Submersible S BRABUS Blue Shadow Edition offers an impressive array of gray and blue tones and matches the BRABUS Shadow 900 Deep Blue luxury day-boat, which will likewise celebrate its debut at the 2022 Palma International Boat Show. This watch will be strictly limited to 200 pieces worldwide.
The case measures 47mm and is composed of titanium and shaped using the process of Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS), a method of 3D printing technology that produces volumes that are both strong and lightweight. The construction of the case, which features the signature Panerai cushion shape and crown protector, offers both performance and a striking matte finish with an assertive presence. Both the unidirectional rotating bezel and lever heighten the standout aspect of the Panerai Submersible S BRABUS Blue Shadow Edition. They are made from Carbotech, a material based on carbon fiber with a variegated pattern that gives each watch a unique character and boasts durability, lightness, and high resistance to corrosion.
Breakthrough technology is present both inside and out. The Panerai Submersible S BRABUS Blue Shadow Edition contains the new P.4001/S caliber, a skeletonized movement based on the P.4000 caliber. It features a one-piece off-centered oscillating weight that allows for bi-directional winding, whereby the two spring barrels efficiently wind up while the watch is worn. The oscillating rotor – made of tungsten, a shiny, high- density metal – enables the movement and therefore the watch itself to be much thinner and lighter while the stop balance wheel and seconds reset devices enable the time to be synchronized with a reference time signal.
The P.4001/S caliber is the product of three years of development and includes a GMT function, an AM/PM indicator and three-day power reserve. In addition, the patented polarized date display, offers a view of the date indication only through the opening at 3 o’clock, without revealing the rest of the date wheel or concealing the workings of the movement.
Water-resistant to 30 bar, the Panerai Submersible S BRABUS Blue Shadow Edition features two straps. The first, is a bi-material option combining black rubber and leather, and a second in deep blue rubber.
