The new Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro stands for two firsts for the watchmaker. The first one is that this is the very first time Panerai is using eSteel, Panerai’s sustainably-sourced case material, in its Submersible line. Secondly, this is the first time Panerai has implemented highly polished, glossy ceramic in its timepieces. The new release comes in three dial colours, with bezels that match harder than your Tinder date. We have the Verde Smeraldo, the Grigio Roccia, and last but not least, the Blu Profondo.
New Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro eSteel
Panerai introduced eSteel to the world last year in the bezel-less Luminor Marina. How can we forget that beauty? With the Submersible collection Panerai uses ceramic that’s been polished to a glossy finish for its signature unidirectional rotating dive bezel. The dial displays a gradient pattern; a light top that gradually fades into dark at the bottom.
Inside the timepiece is the powerhouse P.900 that’s used in numerous other Panerai watches.
As per the brand, about 72 grams of the Submersible QuarantaQuattro is made from recycled materials. That’s basically 52 per cent of 137g (the total weight of the watch.) The eSteel used in the Panerai Submersible QuarantaQuattro is part of a larger plan from Panerai to fight the negative ecological impact of the luxury watch industry.
