The luxury watchmaker blending Italian design with Swiss technology, all in the name of the passion for the sea.
Last year, Panerai, a legacy watch brand that merges Swiss watchmaking finesse and artful Italian design, and BRABUS, a world renowned luxury mobility brand out of the heart of Germany’s Ruhr region, forged a partnership rooted in their shared ambition to redefine the limits of technology, style and performance in their respective spheres. United by their commitment to crafting instruments for dynamic, iconoclastic explorers and a profound reverence for the sea, the two brands created a series of watches designed to merge the best of each – forming a specific identity of their own. Devised from the outset to evolve in response to new offerings from the Panerai and BRABUS portfolios, the collaboration’s latest watch is a companion to a new entry in the BRABUS Marine Shadow series of luxury powerboats, characterized by a stealth green hue.
The Panerai Submersible S BRABUS Verde Militare Edition shares a range of key features introduced by its predecessors, but conquers a league of its own through the use of new materials and a completely reimagined signature design.
Available in a limited edition of 200 pieces, the Submersible S BRABUS Verde Militare Edition features a 47mm case composed of Carbotech, a composite material first used in watchmaking by Panerai. Lighter than steel or titanium and resistant to corrosion, Carbotech is strong and adaptable, making it an easy-to-wear choice for modern heroes facing harsh conditions. Accents in military green also distinguish this reference; the subtle hue appears on the hands, rehaut, rubberized crown, am/pm indicator and the small seconds sub-dial. Meanwhile, the presence of the BRABUS logo on the movement lever and loop affirms the collaborative character of the watch.
