Free diver Guillaume Nery is also a brand ambassador for Panerai. Now, the brand honors him and his daring endeavors with a special edition watch: the Pam 1122 Guillaume Nery Special Edition Luminor Marina 44mm. Daring and different, just like Nery, the new timepiece is crafted in titanium and features a rubber coating on the bezel, crown and bridge lever.
In its Panerai Laboratorio di Idee, the watch is created using Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) 3D printing technology for eh titanium case. The process makes the watch incredibly light in weight. It is powered by the brand’s Caliber P.9010 self-winding movement that is just 6mm thick in order to assure a thin timepiece. The movement is equipped with two barrels in order to ensure three days of power reserve. It also features a quick-time adjustment function so the wearer can move forward or backwards in one-hour increments. That feature is connected to the date indicator, as well.
Just 70 pieces of the high-performance Panerai Luminor Marina Guillaume Nery Watch, inspired by Nery’s incredible dives, will be made. This number is a nod to the 70thanniversary of the Luminor. The diving watch offers high visibility at deep depths thanks to a patented tritium-based substance on the hands and markers that offers high luminescence. A convex sapphire crystal protects the dial. The case back of the Panerai Luminor Marina Guillaume Nery Watch Is engraved with Nery’s signature and an image of a free diver.
Finally, the Panerai Luminor Marina Guillaume Nery Watch is fitted with a recycled PET strap, made from recycled plastic bottles. This furthers Panerai’s commitment to sustainability and conservation. There is also a white rubber technical strap included with the watch, along with a screwdriver for changing it out. This is the first rubber strap to feature luminescent “Officine Panerai” on it. The high-performance watch is water resistant to 300 meters and comes with a 70-year warranty. It is available exclusively at Panerai boutiques and retails for $18,900.
