Panerai takes bronze to surprising territory with a new execution that produces a bold chromatic
Bronze: a material with a lofty heritage, sensual allure and experimental composition; it is alive and changeable, remarkable for the inclination to cloak itself with a unique patina, a sign of the inevitable passage of time. After making its official debut in 2011, bronze has become an essential element in the Panerai collection and for the first time it is the centerpiece of a 42mm Panerai model: Submersible Bronzo Blu Abisso (PAM01074).
Intended for exclusive sale at Panerai boutiques, the model is available in a limited production of only 1,000 pieces a year. The matte blue of the dial is perfectly in tune with the warm tone of the metal. A bronze which is made of pure raw materials excluding the presence of pollution or banned elements, such as lead (< 90ppm).
Bronze enriches the Submersible Bronzo Blu Abisso with a strong personality and uncommon charisma, qualities enhanced by codes that have always been an integral part of the history of the iconic Submersible collection. Those features include the studs on the graduated bezel and the battery of prominent dots and indices emerging from the dial, each filled with beige Super-LumiNovaTM and, therefore, in perfect chromatic harmony with the aesthetic language of the model.
