Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech™ 47mm

For decades, Panerai watches and precision instruments have equipped the commandos of the Italian Navy and, in honour of that partnership, today Panerai still makes creations of invincible spirit which evoke the legendary history of those Special Forces who carried out numerous feats of heroism. The latest creation in this series is the new Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech™, a professional underwater watch of remarkable technical performance made by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel.

The Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech™ has decidedly military features, in both its character and its rigorous quality. It fully deserves the designation Survival Instrument which is engraved on the back together with the image inspired by commandos of the Italian Navy.

The case, 47 mm in diameter, is made of carbotech, a material based on carbon fibre which was introduced into the world of high quality watchmaking by Panerai. It is both lighter than titanium and stronger than stainless steel. The special composition of this material – consisting of extremely thin layers of carbon fibre bound together by a special polymer – gives every individual watch a unique, unrepeatable camouflage appearance, which is reflected in the design of the dial made of carbon, with the date window at 3 o’clock and the small seconds hand at 9 o’clock.

The unidirectional rotating bezel enables the times of immersion to be calculated with confidence, while legibility in the dark – another fundamental requirement of every professional diving watch – is ensured by the generous coating of grey Super-LumiNova ® applied to the markers and the large skeleton hands. The black rubber strap fitted to the watch is also very tough and perfect for diving.

Safely protected by the solid carbotech case is the beating heart of the watch: the P.9010 calibre with a power reserve of three days, entirely developed and created by the Panerai Manufacture.

The balance, solidly fixed by a bridge with twin supports, oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz) and it is fitted with the device which stops the movement as soon as the winding crown is pulled out, so that the watch can be precisely synchronised with a reference signal. As well as this, the hour hand can be conveniently adjusted without interfering with the movement of the minute hand, by means of the device which moves it directly forward or backward in jumps of one hour.

Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech™ 47mm
PAM 00961, Limited Edition of 33 examples

The limited edition Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech™ will enable its 33 fortunate owners to enjoy a unique experience: taking part in a training session with Comsubin, the Diving and Commando Group of the Italian Navy. Hardly anyone who is not a member of this select award-winning circle can take part in this experience, which today Panerai is offering exclusively to its bravest and most passionate clients. The number of product examples being produced – 33 – is the same as the number of Gold Medals for Military Valour won by those who have been members of Comsubin in the course of its history.

The limited edition of the Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech™ is distinguished from the rest of the collection not only by the experience to which it gives access, but also by some stylistic features that further emphasise the military character of this exclusive creation by the Panerai Manufacture. In this version the all-black design is enhanced by details in an intense military green: the Super-LumiNova ® which makes the hands and the hour markers on the dial and the rotating bezel visible in the dark, and the tough rubber strap, perfect for scuba diving. On the back of the case, the Comsubin logo is engraved.

The case, 47 mm in diameter, the unidirectional rotating bezel and the device for protecting the winding crown are made of carbotech, the material with a carbon fibre base introduced into the world of high quality watchmaking by Panerai, which is both lighter than titanium and stronger than stainless steel. The special composition of this material – which consists of extremely thin layers of carbon fibre bound together by a special polymer – confer on each individual example a unique and unrepeatable appearance. This is also picked up by the aesthetic of the black dial made of carbon, with the date window at 3 o’clock and the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock.

The movement of the Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech™ is the P.9010 automatic calibre, entirely developed and made by the Panerai Manufacture, which has a power reserve of three days.
