panerai chrono submersive guillaume nery both views



This professional diving watch, the latest model made by the Florentine brand, celebrates its new ambassador. It will be officially launched at the next SIHH.

Free-diving is a way of life for some and a new and much hyped sport for others, but always has a real power of attraction. Although the champion free-diver, Guillaume Néry, withdrew from competition after an accident that almost cost him his life, it has not stopped him from communicating his passion. Beautiful videos showing him moving slowly in weightlessness and the photos on his Instagram account recount his varied underwater adventures. And now, to go with him on his dives, he can count on a new watch designed by Panerai.

The large, 47mm-wide titanium case is water-resistant down to 300m and is both light in weight and robust. The wide, unidirectional bezel shows the time remaining underwater. “Aesthetics are a source of efficiency“ the French free diver has said. The choice of blue and grey tones and the presence of large features coated with lume are the watch’s major assets.

On the dial, all the time information is driven by an automatic movement. Alongside the ultra-clear display of the hours and minutes, the calibre P.9100 can measure split-times quickly with a chronograph module featuring a flyback function. The two barrels guarantee a generous power reserve of up to 74 hours.

Price: 18,900 EUR
