Panerai launches Brabus Black Ops special limited edition Submersible S watch
Panerai announced the establishment of a partnership with German car tuning company Brabus, but it is not motorsports, but sailing passion that connects the two brands. Brabus is headquartered in Bottrop and provides Shadow Black Ops speedboats under its umbrella. The Submersible S watch Brabus Black Ops special edition (model: PAM01240) launched by Panerai this time is the first result of the cooperation between the two parties. In addition to similar elements closely related to the Brabus Yacht, the watch is also equipped with the brand’s first skeletonized automatic movement.
The 47mm case is made of Carbotech’s patented material and presents a dark gray appearance. The rotating bezel is marked with a minute scale and a fluorescent dot is embedded at 12 o’clock to measure diving time. The crown is equipped with the brand’s iconic bridge protection device, which is engraved with the words “BRABUS” to ensure the waterproof performance of the entire watch to 300 meters. Through the sapphire crystal case back, you can appreciate the precision operation and exquisite finishing of the built-in movement.
The dial has been hollowed out, with a wide view and unobstructed view. The hands and hour markers are coated with fluorescent materials, which can ensure excellent reading even in dark environments. The 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions are respectively equipped with Optical Polar patented date window, small seconds and day and night indication functions.
In addition, the panel is also equipped with a GMT pointer, which can display time information in the second time zone. To pay tribute to the partners, the hands, scales and logos are all in Brabus’s signature red hue, and there is also a disc decorated with the Brabus logo at 7 o’clock. Since the watch is not equipped with a regular dial, Panerai’s brand logo is printed on the sapphire crystal.
This luxury watch is equipped with the P.4001/s movement, which is based on the P.4000 as the prototype, assembled from 341 parts and contains 31 jewel bearings. It is Panerai’s first skeletonized automatic movement. The P.4001/s movement is equipped with a double barrel and a tungsten oscillating weight, which can provide up to 72 hours of power reserve. At the same time, the movement is also equipped with a stop-second reset device to make time setting easier. In addition, the case back is also equipped with a power reserve indicator, which is indicated by a rotating disc combined with an arrow to indicate the remaining power. The disc has Super-LumiNova fluorescent numbers, so it remains clear and easy to read even in the dark.
Panerai replica Submersible S watch Brabus Black Ops special edition comes with a bi-material strap, decorated with “BRABUS” on the strap, and with a black titanium buckle. At the same time, this watch also provides an additional Sportech™ interchangeable strap.
