Panerai, the a global high-end watch brand joins forces with BRABUS, the German luxury engineering brand which focuses on high performance vehicles, in a collaboration that will bring together the brands’ design DNAs and identities in a series of exclusive watch products and expand the reach and visibility of both brands in the worlds of watchmaking and boating. Panerai and BRABUS, both unconventional forces in their respective fields, want to take on the maritime world. The origin and history of Panerai is inseparably linked to the development of diving watches the character and design of which perfectly fits to the BRABUS “Black Ops” line of luxury dayboats. Each bringing decades of experience to the table the two brands will work to create innovative products fitting the marine segment of each and to maximise the potential for new ideas, new technologies and new materials used in those products. The “Panerai Submersible S BRABUS Black Ops Edition (PAM01240)”, is a limited edition of Panerai’s longstanding diving instrument, that is at the same time the first-ever Panerai watch with a skeleton automatic caliber. 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 synchronised with a reference time signal. The new movement was developed starting from the P.4000 caliber and entirely designed and created at the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchatel.
