Panerai’s latest and greatest of their 2021 collection can be found here. In a nutshell, a new recycled steel, chronographs, and a 42mm Bronzo.
Composed of recycled-based material, eSteelTM is an advancement that represents a step in Panerai’s commitment to reduce the need for virgin material extraction and its associated high environmental impact.
89g of the Luminor Marina eSteelTM components are made of recycled-based materials, corresponding to the 58,4% of the total weight of the watch (that is 152,4g). Both the case and dial of Luminor Marina eSteelTM feature the new recycled-based steel alloy. The challenges of developing the material were manifold. Foremost among these: the requirement that eSteelTM meets the same rigorous standards demanded of the steel cases that preceded it. eSteelTM exhibits the identical chemical behavior, physical structure and resistance to corrosion as a non-recycled alloy.
The Luminor Marina eSteelTM features a brushed case with a polished bezel, a rubberized crown and the lever is personalized with the eSteelTM logo. The watches are available in three dial colors: Blu Profondo, Grigio Roccia and Verde Smeraldo, the last of which is exclusive to Panerai boutiques and e-commerce. Each features a polished dial with gradient color which goes from dark to light color, with the eSteelTM logo printed on it.
Submersible eLAB-IDTM is an unprecedented achievement in the history of the watch industry. A total of 98.6% of its weight comes from materials integrating a high rate of recycled elements. Its case, sandwich dial and bridges are composed of EcoTitaniumTM, a recycled titanium alloy that is a lightweight aerospace-grade metal made of more than 80% pure recycled content.
Submersible eLAB-IDTM is the first watch to use 100% recycled SuperLuminovaTM on its dial and hands and 100% recycled silicon for its movement escapement. Both are obtained through dedicated, small-scale recycling processes that reuse raw material waste. From the sapphire crystal to the gold hands, most of the major components contain recycled- based material.
The watch measures 44mm and runs on the P.900e caliber with 3 days power reserve.
Featuring a sandwich dial and crown-protecting bridge on the right side of the dial, Panerai’s quintessential elements, the Luminor Chrono are distinguished by the original placement on the left of the chronograph controls and by the blue hands devoted to that function. Finally, a “base 1000” tachymeter scale on the prominent flange allows the calculation of average speed over a predefined distance, in kilometers or miles.
To ensure a unified identity among the models, all feature the new Caliber P.9200 with chronograph function. It is an efficient, high-performance self-winding movement thanks to the 42-hour power reserve ensured by the energy stored within a single barrel.
LUMINOR CHRONO LUNA ROSSA
Made in a limited edition, the Luminor Chrono Luna Rossa PAM01303 will be available in just 1000 pieces, to celebrate the passion and talent of the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team.
LUMINOR CHRONO MONOPULSANTE GMT BLU NOTTE
A powerful expression of Italian design and the innovation of the The Luminor Chrono Monopulsante GMT Blu Notte (PAM01135) is a single-button column wheel chronograph, which combines the start/stop/reset functions in a single push-piece. It is also equipped with the GMT function, allowing the home time and local time to be displayed simultaneously. It has a powerful presence reinforced by the midnight blue dial with satiné soleil decoration and classic sandwich structure, with Arabic numerals and indexes in white Super-LumiNovaTM with green luminescence.
The watch is available in a limited edition of 200 pieces
Same as the previous Bronzo models, but in a smaller case size at 42mm. The watch is also intended for exclusive sale at Panerai boutiques, the model is available in a limited production of 1,000 pieces a year. It uses a P.900 caliber with 3 days power reserve.
