To celebrate the start of the partnership, Panerai debuts its first-ever skeletonized automatic movement inspired by the design of the Brabus “Shadow Black Ops” series of boats. Panerai, a global high-end watch brand rooted in Swiss watchmaking know-how and Italian design. Brabus is a German luxury engineering brand focused on high-performance vehicles.
The basis for the collaboration is centered around the “Panerai Submersible S Brabus Black Ops Edition (PAM01240)”, a limited edition of Panerai’s longstanding diving instrument.
The P.4001/s 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 enables the time to be synchronized with a reference time signal.
Available in a limited run of only 100 pieces, the Panerai Submersible S Brabus Black Ops Edition (PAM01240) is the product of 3 years of development.
The 47mm watch features a unidirectional rotating bezel for the calculation of the immersion time, GMT function, AM/PM indicator and three-day power reserve whose sapphire crystal disk indicator is filled in Super-LumiNova.
As a logical tribute to both brands’ frequent use of innovative and high-end composite materials a modern, dark grey Carbotech watchcase was chosen. Minute, hour and small seconds hands are accented in BRABUS-red; and Brabus brand emblems are engraved on Panerai’s signature crown guard lever, the watch-strap, the movement and the case back.
