Panerai Deploys New Navy SEALs Watch Collection
Go deep with these SEAL-approved timepieces.
There’s a rarified air to the elite world of the Navy SEALs, as you might expect, as only the best make the cut. The same could be said of Panerai’s similarly elite Navy SEALs Collection, which deepens the watchmaker’s military ties while reaching a global audience for the first time.
Panerai already draws plenty of inspiration from pursuits that sit at the intersection of rugged and powerful, yet refined (like a powerboat-inspired collection of watches).
Its Navy SEAL offering brings five watches to the wrists of enthusiasts worldwide, a boon for watch collectors following the collection’s U.S,-exclusive release.
The collection, which includes models like the Luminor Marina Navy SEAL, nods to “the shared passion for pushing the boundaries of what is possible,” Panerai said in a release about their latest drop.
The Panerai Luminor Chrono Navy SEALs (one of two Luminor Chrono editions in the collection) epitomizes the blurring of lines between sporty and elegant, featuring a brushed Brunito steel 44mm case, an impressive 42-hour power reserve and Panerai’s own 41-jewel P.9200 movement.
And yet, it’s set on a grooved black rubber strap for dependable, adventure-ready appeal.
The world of the Navy SEALs takes on an entirely new meaning beyond just the watch on one’s wrist, too.
The Experience Edition: Submersible Chrono Navy SEALs watch offers some serious bang for your buck, with a price tag of $61,700 that also comes complete with an impressive day of Panerai Navy SEALs training.
The collection is rounded out by the Submersible GMT Carbotech Navy SEALs edition, boasting a weathered, proprietary Carbotech bezel that will only develop an even more handsome patina over time.
Only a proud few make the cut as a Navy SEAL, but this latest Panerai collection is as fitting an homage to their prowess as any — and its worldwide availability is great news for those who value precise, rugged and elegant style.
