Giant watchmaker Panerai has just made a very huge announcement that they are relaunching their watches under the Submersible series as a separate collection from its mother collection, The Luminor. One of the collection’s limited-edition watches is the Submersible Mike Horn Edition.
The watch’s body
The watch features a 47-mm case that includes a telltale bridge-type crown protector device, a specially engraved case made from reused titanium in its back, and the rotating divers’ bezel. The case can resist any kinds of moisture to up to 300 meters. The bezel also features the newly crafted dive scale.
It is possible to dip this watch underwater, thanks to a large amount of green Super-LumiNova against its black dial, hands, hour markers, and the borders of the sub-dial. The inscriptions are also silk-screened on its protective sapphire crystal.
What drives the watch
The watch is being powered by the Caliber P9010, which is exclusively produced by Panerai itself. It features a self-winding vibration with its bidirectional rotor. It has a power reserve of up to 72 hours or roughly three whole days.
The Caliber P9010 is behind the movement of the central hours, seconds and the date display. Just like the other Panerai watches, the Mike Horn Edition comes with a device that stops the balance wheel. This allows for even and precise synchronization of the watch as you set it. It will also allow you to adjust the hour either forward and backwards quickly without blocking the movement of the seconds. These features are especially helpful when you shift between time zones.
The Panerai Submersible Mike Horn Edition is also made from the eco-friendliest materials. It’s rear also has an engraving of Mike Horn’s insignia and artwork of the sea ecosystem. It is now available to the public at the price of USD 19,300.
