Insider: Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech Special Edition PAM 961. A Watch that Includes a Training Experience with Commandos of the Italian Navy.

This year Panerai focused their SIHH novelties around their Submersible line and released a dozen Submersible timepieces. The new Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech Special Edition PAM 961 is one of our absolute favorites and the buyers of this 33-piece limited edition will have the opportunity to participate on a spectacular experience that includes one day of training with the COMSUBIN —Comando Subacquei ed Incursori— “Raiders and Divers” Commandos of the Italian Navy. The number of pieces in this limited edition is 33 like the number of gold medals earned by COMSUBIN for Military Valour. First and foremost the COMSUBIN is a secret special operations unit. Its membership is a fairly well-guarded secret and estimates account for this group to have around 700 specialized men.

SIHH 2019: Panerai Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Special Edition PAM 983. Live Pictures & Pricing.

Continuing with our coverage of all the Panerai novelties released at the SIHH 2019, comes the new Panerai Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Special Edition PAM983, not to be confused with the other Guillaume Néry Edition PAM 982. What makes this watch different, other than the obvious nuances with a black DLC titanium case and bezel and with a blue black dial, is that this watch is sold including an epic experience that only 15 lucky buyers will get to enjoy. The fortunate few who acquire this new Panerai will have the opportunity to participate in an exclusive experience to take place in Moorea —French Polynesia— where free-diver Guillaume Néry lives.

SIHH 2019: Panerai Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry PAM 982. Live Pictures & Pricing.

As mentioned during our review of the new Panerai Submersible Luna Rossa, this year at the SIHH 2019, Panerai focused their novelties around their Submersible line and released a dozen different Submersible timepieces. The new Panerai Submersible Chrono Guillaume Néry Edition PAM982 is one of our favorites and the result of a partnership with Guillaume Néry the free-diving champion. When we first heard that Panerai was partnering with him, we got really excited as we are big fans of Néry and his diving videos on Youtube are simply epic. We first discovered Guillaume Néry like 6 years ago when he was still an ambassador for Ball Watches —we really couldn’t care less for the watches— and he did a video base jumping into Dean’s Blue Hole in the Bahamas.

The new Panerai Submersible Luna Rossa comes with a Carbotech case measuring 47 mm in diameter and a grey dial featuring recycled old sails from the America’s Cup Luna Rossa AC75 team.

SIHH 2017: Officine Panerai Radiomir 3 Days Acciaio 'Brevettato' PAM 685 and PAM 687. Hands-on Live Pictures & Pricing.

Finally, we got to see in the metal at the SIHH 2017, two new watches from Panerai we just couldn't wait to see in person. But first, just a little history before we go into the details on these two watches. In the late 1930s, Panerai made a number of Radiomir watches with a special 12-sided bezel, engraved with the words “OFFICINE PANERAI – BREVETTATO”. This inscription 'Brevettato' —which means Patented— referred to the patented luminous substance Radiomir used on the dial and it suggests that the watches were used not for military operations but for presenting to the authorities of the Royal Italian Navy, which was evaluating new instruments for underwater missions.
