Discover The New Panerai Submersible S BRABUS Verde Militare Edition

The result of a collaboration between the worlds of horology and high-performance day boating, this state-of-the-art watch is tech-forward and sophisticated. Featuring military-inspired styling, the Submersible S BRABUS Verde Militare Edition sees the key elements introduced by its predecessors, alongside brand-new materials and a completely reimagined signature design.

Swiss and German engineering

The Swiss watchmaking brand Panerai and the German-based BRABUS luxury mobility brand began their partnership a year ago, intent on redefining the limits of technology, style and performance. Both brought their considerable experience in crafting instruments for dynamic, ground-breaking explorers and a deep respect for the sea; together creating a series of watches combining their individual specialisms, but forming a new, single identity. The Panerai Submersible S BRABUS Verde Militare Edition is their latest venture, produced in a limited edition of 200 pieces, and designed in line with the BRABUS Marine Shadow series of stealth green powerboats.

Carbotech and Caliber P. 4001/S

Its 47mm case is made of Carbotech, a composite material that’s lighter on the wrist than steel or titanium and resistant to corrosion. Strong and adaptable, it was first used in horology by Panerai, ideal for modern adventurers facing harsh conditions. A nod to the Marine Shadow appears in accents of green on the hands, rehaut, rubberized crown, am/pm indicator and the small seconds sub-dial. And the BRABUS logo appears on the movement lever and loop.

The watch is powered by a Caliber P. 4001/S, evolved from the original P.4000 calibre; this was the first automatic movement with an off-centre micro-rotor developed by the Panerai Manufacture at Neuchâtel. The Caliber P. 4001/S is automatic and skeletonized, with a three-day power reserve (an indicator on the reverse of the case keeps track of this). This skeletonised movement is clearly visible, unobstructed by the date disc, which is only seen through the window at 3 o’clock, due to a patented polarized date display.

Streamlined and skeletonised

The bridges and plates have been created to be as sparse as possible, allowing the focus to fall on the workings of the movement and keeping the watch super light in terms of weight. A unidirectionally rotating bezel calculates immersion time and GMT function, while the one-piece, off-centre oscillating weight allows for two-directional winding (although two spring barrels also wind the watch during wear). The stop balance wheel and seconds reset devices enable the time to synchronize with a reference time signal. Additionally, the watch is water-resistant to 30 bar (~ 300 meters).

Available in a limited edition of 200 pieces, the Submersible S BRABUS Verde Militare Edition, with its skeletonized structure, is water-resistant to 30 bar (300 meters) and features two straps, a black bi-material version and a second in military green rubber.
