The new Submersible Chronograph by Panerai is a tribute to Guillaume Néry, its ambassador for the sea and twice free-diving world champion.

The new Panerai Submersible Chrono – Guillaume Néry edition is a combination of performance, strength and reliability worthy of the remarkable champion who has inspired this amazing new creation of mechanical engineering. Guillaume Néry was twice a world champion and he broke four constant weight free-diving world records. This former professional athlete is now an ambassador of the sea, turning his astonishing underwater experiences into images and videos which amaze everyone who sees them. In his honor, Panerai has created a new watch combining technical performance and a remarkably powerful, sporty appearance.

The Panerai Submersible Chrono – Guillaume Néry edition is above all a professional diver’s watch, water-resistant to a depth of about 300 meters (30 bar) and fitted with a unidirectional rotating bezel, which accurately displays the duration of the dive. The dial is clearly legible under all lighting conditions and in complete darkness, thanks to the luminous white markers, which stand out strongly against the shark grey, textured background. Engraved on the screw back are the champion’s signature and the depths of his final awe-inspiring record: 126 meters, achieved with a single breath.

The watch is sexy and light, with its titanium case which integrates perfectly with the blue of the ceramic disc applied to the bezel, the blue hands and the blue rubber strap. It is also a precision chronograph, with fly-back function and the device for zeroing the seconds hand to enable perfect synchronization with a reference signal. The Panerai Submersible Chrono – Guillaume Néry edition is fitted with a P.9100 in house automatic calibre with a power reserve of three days.
