In natural synergy with the indomitable spirit of one of history’s greatest explorers, Panerai presents Submersible EcoPangaeaTM Tourbillon GMT – 50 mm Mike Horn Edition (PAM01108), a sophisticated and authentically environmentally sensitive watch.
The Submersible EcoPangaeaTM Tourbillon GMT – 50 mm Mike Horn Edition is designed to be a tool for daring pioneers. With production limited to only 5 pieces and available only in Panerai boutiques, it offers access to an exclusive expedition to the Arctic under the supervision of Mike Horn, the South African-born Swiss professional explorer and adventurer. He is a brand ambassador of Panerai.
Distinctly sensitive to the recycling of natural resources, conservation is an integral part of Panerai’s culture, the brand is recognized in developing innovative materials, including the new EcoPangaeaTM high-tech steel. Composed of recycled metal from the 35-meter drive shaft of the Pangea, Mike Horn’s sailing ship, the material has been purified, perfected and finally shaped into an extraordinary Submersible, the first in the collection equipped with a tourbillon.
The new Submersible is distinguished by a unidirectional rotating bezel with polished indexes on a sandblasted base, “Arctic” blue functional details and an engraved porthole case back. A generously proportioned 50 mm case features an amplified size to house a soft iron ring that protects the movement from the negative influence of magnetic fields.
This watch is equipped with the hand-wound caliber P.2005/T, which was designed and developed entirely by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. A skeletonized titanium movement is rooted in advanced geometries with a series of three barrels responsible for a 6-day power reserve and a 30-second tourbillon that rotates along a perpendicular axis.
Water-resistant up to 30 bar (about 300 meters deep) the new Submersible EcoPangaeaTM Tourbillon GMT – 50 mm Mike Horn Edition includes a black rubber strap and a second strap – also in black, with anthracite stitching and a Velcro closure – made of recycled PET material. A special tool to change the straps, a screwdriver for removing the buckle and a display box made of recycled plastic are the final elements of the special edition package.
