Panerai broke new ground in 2010 with a dive watch in bronze, a metal appreciated for the patina it acquires over time. It returns this year as part of the Submersible collection, with the introduction of a ceramic disc on the bezel.

Rare, iconic, tough and fascinating: Panerai’s bronze watches swiftly entered the world of high quality watchmaking with their very strong personality, showing that Panerai’s Laboratorio di Idee can combine the past and the future, technology and design, with consummate skill. The new Panerai Submersible Bronzo is derived from those creations, for the first time integrated in a collection.

The look of the watch is strong and decisive with its solid bronze case 47mm in diameter and the iconic device for protecting the winding crown patented by Panerai in 1955. In this new version, a micro-sandblasted brown ceramic disc has been applied to the rotating bezel, which integrates perfectly with the brown of the dial and the strap made of natural leather. The patina which gradually forms on the surface of the bronze gives each example an original, dynamic appearance and it also protects it from further oxidation, without changing its properties.

The Panerai Submersible Bronzo is a professional diving watch, water-resistant to a depth of 300 metres (30 bar) and with all the indications clearly visible even in complete darkness. The small seconds hand at 9 o’clock indicates that the watch is running properly in all situations and the unidirectional rotating bezel enables the safe duration of each dive to be calculated. Furthermore, the new watch is supplied with a second strap in military green rubber, ideal for activities in the sea. The P.9010 Manufacture calibre, automatic with a power reserve of three days, is wound by a bidirectional oscillating weight, which can be admired through the sapphire glass porthole on the back. It displays the time and the date, and it is fitted with the mechanical device for rapidly adjusting the hour hand.
