Panerai Navy SEALs Collection: Timepieces for Modern Heroes

A Limited Edition Collaboration Celebrating Bravery and Adventure

Panerai’s history is deeply intertwined with the Italian military, and the brand has always been synonymous with challenge, bravery, team spirit, and adrenaline. These same values are shared by the legendary Navy SEALs, known for their exceptional training and remarkable feats in the world of the sea, modern heroes in their own right.

The fusion of these two worlds has resulted in a range of timepieces with specialist diving and sporting features, each designed with the elite military force in mind. This partnership exemplifies the courage and determination that both Panerai and the Navy SEALs exemplify. Whether you’re a professional diver, a daring adventurer, or a collector of superbly constructed watches, this line is inspired by a shared enthusiasm for pushing the limits of what’s possible.

For the first time ever, this limited edition Navy SEALs collection will be available internationally, following the previous release exclusively for the US market.

The Luminor Marina Navy SEALs PAM01412 is a re-edition of a famous Panerai model housed in a 44mm steel Brunito case. Each Brunito steel case is hand-finished one at a time to achieve a seasoned appearance, with the steel case’s aged aspect manufactured using PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition). The watch has an anthracite-colored dial with the inscription ‘Navy SEALs’. The Navy SEALs logo is engraved on the case back, and the rubber band is composed of high-quality rubber for superior abrasion resistance as well as endurance for oils and corrosive substances. It also includes a second bi-material strap. The PAM01412 is a limited edition of 862 pieces and is powered by an automated P9010 calibre with a three-day reserve.

The collaboration continues with two Luminor Chrono references, PAM01409 in a 44mm steel Brunito case and PAM01419 in a 44mm CarboTech™ case. The structure of Carbotech is designed to enhance both the aesthetics and the performance of the material where thin sheets of carbon fibres are compressed at a controlled temperature under high pressure together with a high-end polymer, PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone), which binds the composite material, making it stronger and more durable.

Both watches have shaded black dials with the word ‘Navy SEALs’ and a target-inspired tiny seconds sub-dial, as well as the Speed Tachymeter Scale, which measures the average speed of the yacht over a certain distance. They, like the PAM01412, have rubber crowns and back cases embossed with the elite force’s logo, as well as rubber straps and a second bi-material strap. PAM01409 is powered by a P.9200 Chrono automatic calibre and comes in a limited edition of 562 pieces, while PAM01419 comes in a limited edition of 462 pieces.

From the Submersible collection, the Submersible Navy SEALs is animated by caliber P.900/GMT. The self-winding movement is equipped with central hour and minute hands, a small seconds dial at 9 o’clock, the date at 3 o’clock, and a GMT display of a second time zone. Two spring barrels store energy supplying a three days power reserve.

PAM01323 features a 44m steel case and bezel, contrasting beautifully with the shaded grainy black dial. The dial is darker at the perimeter than at its center, with large dots and golden yellow colour accents on each hand and the numerals in the date window, making it highly legible. The Navy Seals emblem is engraved on the case back, and the watch comes with a black rubberized crown and black rubber strap, as well as a second bi-material option with a black and gray camouflage pattern inspired by the uniform worn by Navy SEALs. A tool is included for easy interchangeability of the straps.

PAM01402

For thrill seekers, Panerai introduces PAM01402, the Experience Edition: Submersible Chrono Navy SEALs, where every watch owner will be invited to participate in an immersive thematic Special Operations Experience. Set in a 47mm steel Brunito case with a ceramic disc on the bezel and a rubber crown, the timepiece has a shaded black dial that features the ‘Navy SEALs’ inscription and target-inspired small seconds sub-dial. The Submersible is equipped with a flyback chronograph function that enables the wearer to time events with a simple push as well as the tactical Time to Target that allows for counting down to a desired point in time. The back case is engraved with the elite unit’s logo while its rubber strap is matched with a second patch Velcro strap inspired by the patch used on military uniforms. Powered by a P.9100/R automatic caliber with a three-day reserve, the limited edition is available in 50 pieces.

PAM01402 owners will be put through a series of tactical exercises meant to physically and intellectually test them, urging them to push themselves to their limits and beyond. Participants will have a better understanding and appreciation for the unit’s valiant efforts. Each Special Operations Experience participant will also receive an NFT with material to enhance their experience, such as a specific instruction card, technical information about the watch, a warranty booklet, and, ultimately, artwork made specifically by the Panerai Studio.

The collection comes in the new Panerai box. The design includes a convenient drawer that houses the booklet and guarantee card, as well as a second strap and tools to change the straps. The new packaging also includes a travel pouch, particularly useful for those who frequently travel, ensuring that their timepiece is protected and secure.
