So far, Panerai’s Submersible has been only available in the two cases sizes 47 and 42mm. At this year’s Watches & Wonders, a new case size that lies in-between has been added. As with most of Panerai’s references, it is expressed in name: Submersible Quaranta Quattro, which translates to 44mm.
Apart from the size, the latest iterations resemble their bigger and smaller siblings in all key features: The diver’s watch is water-resistant to 300 meters, boasts a unidirectional rotating bezel including markings for the first 15 minutes, and a genuine movement, here the automatic manufacture caliber P900 with a three-day power reserve.
As part of the debut, Panerai has released three different models. The Submersible Quaranta Quattro Carbotech Blu Abisso (PAM01232) arrives in a case made of Panerai’s patented material Carbotech, a composite based on carbon fiber, which is lightweight, scratch resistant and corrosion resistant. Finished with a dark blue rubber strap, the watch retails for $18,200.
The Submersible Quaranta Quattro with a black dial and black rubber strap and the Submersible Quaranta Quattro Bianco with a white dial and and green rubber strap are clad in stainless steel. Pricing for both of these editions is marked at $9,600.
