Panerai Teams Up With Brabus to Roll Out Limited-Edition Submersible Watch

Italian luxury watchmaker Panerai has teamed up with the boatbuilding arm of German aftermarket tuner Brabus. The result? A stunning watch inspired by Brabus' Shadow Black Ops series of dayboats, which features the tuner's gunmetal grey, black and red color scheme: meet the Panerai Submersible S Brabus Black Ops Edition.

Panerai and Brabus are both unconventional figures in their fields, but they share a passion for the sea. Panerai's roots are closely tied to the establishment of diving watches, which have a character and design that perfectly complements the Brabus Black Ops boat line.

"When put side by side, the similarities in regard to design language and overall character of the Panerai Submersible and the BRABUS Marine line of dayboats are obvious and striking. Both are made to be functional and stylish tools for life in the marine environment and therefore this combination just makes sense," says Brabus CEO, Constantin Buschmann.

It took three years to turn this timepiece into a durable machine that has a water resistance of up to 300 meters (984 ft). The use of the signature Brabus color scheme of gunmetal gray, black, and red is highlighted by a stunning Carbotech watchcase that completes the sporty design.

The 47 mm (1.87") watch features a sapphire glass that allows the wearer to gaze into the intricate design of the skeletonized dial (a first for Panerai). The dial also includes the Brabus branded logo located between 6 and 7 o'clock. The heart of the timepiece beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour (vph), powered by the in-house P.4001/S Automatic Mechanical movement, which provides a three-day power reserve.

To make it stand out even more, the watch's hours and minutes indicators were coated with Super-LumiNova. The whole look is completed with a Caoutchouc Grey with anthracite stitching that also features the Brabus logo.

Limited to 100 pieces, the new Panerai Submersible S Brabus Black Ops Edition is designed to be worn comfortably on the waves. Collectors, divers, and thrill-seekers must dig deep into their pockets to get their hands on this piece because it comes with a $48,806 price tag.
