Panerai Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Edition

The new Panerai Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Edition is inspired by Guillaume Néry, a world champion well known for his four constant weight free-diving world record breaking achievements. Guillaume Néry 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 with its 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.

Panerai has also created 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.

This professional diving watch is 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.
