Recycled steel with Arctic adventure.
Last year, the limited-edition extreme adventure set sold well in business, and fake Panerai once again launched a watch with a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but this timepiece is no longer just a basic diving watch.
The Submersible EcoPangaea Tourbillon GMT PAM01108 is limited to five pieces, equipped with a skeleton movement, a second time zone and a tourbillon. Even more unusual is that the 50 mm thick case of PAM 1108 is made of recycled steel.
This material, called EcoPangaea steel, was recovered from the discarded drive shafts of Pangea, a 35-meter sailing boat owned by South African environmentalist and explorer Mike Horn.
Appropriately, this watch includes an Arctic expedition supervised by Mike Horn, which Panerai describes as “an opportunity to test the limits of your body and witness the danger of our ecosystem.”
PAM 1108 uses the P.2005/T movement, which Panerai has used in several other skeleton tourbillon watches. P.2005/T is manually wound with a power reserve of six days, equipped with a second time zone function, a central GMT pointer, and a novel tourbillon at 10 o’clock.
Unlike the traditional tourbillon which rotates on the same plane as the dial, the balance wheel swings on the same axis of rotation, the Panerai tourbillon rotates perpendicular to the dial, like a barbecue spit, rotating at high speed, rotating once every 30 seconds.
