One of the novelties revealed by Panerai this year at the SIHH is a new diving professional watch, strong, bold and tough: a new Submersible Chronograph inspired by Guillaume Néry.

PANERAI SUBMERSIBLE CHRONO GUILLAUME NÉRY EDITION – 47mm PAM00982

The new Panerai Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Edition is a combination of performance, strength and reliability worthy of the remarkable champion who has inspired this amazing new creation of mechanical engineering. Guillaume Néry was twice a world champion and he broke four constant weight free-diving world records. This former professional athlete is now an ambassador of the sea, turning his astonishing underwater experiences into images and videos which amaze everyone who sees them. In his honour, Panerai has created a new watch combining technical performance and a remarkably powerful, sporty appearance.

The Panerai Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Edition is above all a professional diving watch, water-resistant to a depth of about 300 metres (30 bar) and fitted with a unidirectional rotating bezel, which accurately displays the duration of the dive. The dial is clearly legible under all lighting conditions and in complete darkness, thanks to the luminous white markers, which stand out strongly against the shark grey, textured background. Engraved on the screw back are the champion’s signature and the depths of his final awe-inspiring record: 126 metres, achieved with a single breath.

The watch has a titanium case which integrates perfectly with the blue of the ceramic disc applied to the bezel, the blue hands and the blue rubber strap. It is also a precision chronograph, with fly-back function and the device for zeroing the seconds hand to enable perfect synchronisation with a reference signal. The Panerai Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Edition is fitted with a P.9100 automatic calibre with a power reserve of three days. This movement was entirely developed in Panerai’s high quality watchmaking Manufacture in Neuchâtel, in the
Laboratorio di Idee.

PANERAI SUBMERSIBLE CHRONO GUILLAUME NÉRY EDITION – 47mm

PAM00983 Limited edition of 15 examples

Panerai watches, for many decades used exclusively by the commandos of the Italian Navy in their courageous underwater operations, have a glorious history of heroism in their DNA. Today this heroic history lives on in a contemporary form thanks to a special version of the Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Edition, limited to fifteen examples. The fortunate few who acquire this new Panerai creation will have the opportunity to participate in an exclusive experience: they will be invited to Moorea, in French Polynesia, where Guillaume Néry lives. There they will plunge into the depths of the ocean and experience the extraordinary emotions of diving while whale watching with the many-times world champion free-diver, who today is one of the greatest international ambassadors of the world of the sea.

The Panerai Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Edition is evidently a professional diving watch, water-resistant to a depth of about 300 metres (30 bar) and fitted with a unidirectional rotating bezel, with an applied black ceramic disc, for reliably calculating the duration of the dive. The dial is clearly legible under all lighting conditions and in complete darkness, thanks to the luminous white markers which stand out prominently against a specially textured black and blue background.
The strap is rubber while the screw back is engraved with the signature of the champion, the island of Moorea and an image which recalls his final breath-taking constant weight free-diving record: a depth of 126 metres, reached with a single breath.

Thanks to the 47 mm titanium case, coated with a layer of DLC (Diamond-Like-Carbon) to make it more resistant to knocks and scratches, the watch has a masculine, sporty black appearance, emphatic and contemporary, with elements which immediately bring to mind the seas of Polynesia: parts of the hour markers and of the hands are an unusual turquoise blue. The Panerai Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Edition is also a precision chronograph, with flyback function and the device for zeroing the seconds hand to achieve perfect synchronisation with a reference signal. The P.9100 automatic calibre, with a power reserve of three days, was entirely developed by Panerai’s high quality watchmaking Manufacture in Neuchâtel, the Laboratorio di Idee.
