Panerai will be unveiling a new professional submersible watch that can face any challenge, above and under sea level at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) 2019. Strong, daring and exceptionally durable, this new Panerai Submersible Chrono – Guillaume Néry edition chronograph timepiece was inspired by Guillaume Néry – the French freediving champion who is globally renowned for his records and his amazing underwater images.
The Panerai Submersible Chrono – Guillaume Néry edition is mainly a professional submersible watch, water resistant up to a depth of 300 meters (30 bar) and equipped with a rotating bezel to calculate the duration of a dive. The dial is exceptionally readable in all conditions of light and darkness, thanks to a combination of white and blue luminescent indices that stand out very well against the grey background. The case is engraved with the signature of the champion and an image that recalls his latest breathtaking record: a depth of 126 meters reached with only one breath.
Out of the water the watch – light and appealing, thanks to the titanium case that perfectly matches with the blue of the ceramic bezel and the rubber strap – is also a chronograph with Flyback function for a perfect synchronization with an external signal. The automatic calibre P.9100 of the Submersible Chrono – Guillaume Néry edition, with 3 day power reserve is entirely developed in the high-end watchmaking manufacture Laboratorio di Idee in Neuchâtel, Switzerland.
