SHANGHAI WATCHES&WONDER 2020
THE YEAR OF LUMINOR
From a radiant tribute to the Luminor legacy to a Submersible Prima Assoluta, our latest editions embody power, precision, and remarkable engineering.
SUBMERSIBLE GOLDTECH™ OROCARBO
A professional diving watch with experimental aesthetics.
The rare combination of innovation and tradition defies convention, Panerai expands the dimensions of its collection of diving instruments with an offering that combines two innovative materials for the first time: Panerai Goldtech™ and Carbotech™. Though seemingly antithetical, the pairing is surprisingly complementary in the Submersible Goldtech™ - 44 mm (PAM01070).
Once again an exponent of the well tested 44 mm size, the new reference makes its distinctive character apparent through a balance between disciplined elegance and bold athleticism. Its personality is enhanced by a case made from Panerai Goldtech™, a gold alloy with an intense and stable color made possible by its significant copper content and enrichment with platinum. The dial features applied indexes and satiné soleil decoration, an unconventional embellishment in the Submersible collection.
A limited edition model available exclusively online.
Having first built its reputation on mastery of the specialized diving watch category, Panerai returns to its origins with the development of a new professional instrument: Submersible Azzurro – 42 mm (PAM01209), made in only 500 pieces and available exclusively on the panerai.com ecommerce platform.
Aesthetic and functionality
Developed to merge technical performance and substance with proven knowhow, the new Submersible unifies its aesthetic and functional dimensions by displaying a fitting color on the opaque ceramic disc of the bezel: blue, a hue that instantly evokes the sea. Since the very beginning, water has been the brand’s distinctive element and blue has been Italy’s unofficial national color since its unification, a milestone reached just a few months after the opening of Giovanni Panerai’s first historic Florentine shop.
LUMINOR LUNA ROSSA GMT
A limited edition of 250 pieces
The road to winning the 36th America’s Cup begins with the Prada Cup Challenger Selection Series, scheduled between January and February 2021 in waters off Auckland, New Zealand. Panerai reinforces its role as Official Sponsor of the Luna Rossa Team with the launch of an advanced timepiece that represents artisanal Italian excellence: Luminor Luna Rossa GMT - 42 mm (PAM01096)
With its rigorous technical and aesthetic specifications, the new Luminor Luna Rossa elevates the already lofty reputation of a revered collection with the addition of a novel material: Scafotech™. The innovative and sustainable composite is made from carbon fiber residue collected from the hull and hydrofoils of the Italian team’s AC75 yacht. It has been recycled and forged into a high-tech polymer for use as the watch dial.
Luminor 70 years
Luminor Marina DMLS, Carbotech™, Fibratech™

CELEBRATION OF THE ICON
Luminor Marina Goldtech™
Panerai’s first Luminor Marina with a 44mm Goldtech™ case, this landmark edition raises the bar on strength and style. Forged using a revolutionary alloy with a high percentage of copper and a small quantity of platinum, this new Luminor Marina is as equal parts boldness and fortitude.

Luminor Marina Fibratech™
Introducing the Luminor Marina Fibratech™ – 44mm, a Prima Assoluta in watchmaking. Remarkably lightweight and astoundingly tough, Fibratech™ is 70% lighter than steel, 55% lighter than titanium. The launch of this edition signifies a landmark moment in the industry and is a testament to Panerai’s legacy of innovation.
The Embodiment of Robustness
A material previously used in aeronautics, Fibratech™ is a resilient composite of fully recyclable mineral fibres derived from molten volcanic rock and mineral additives. The case is complemented by a blue sandwich dial and the P.9010 3 days automatic calibre, engineered in Neuchâtel.
PANERAI LUNA ROSSA
Luminor Luna Rossa GMT
Tides, and tastes, may change, but heroics endure. The Luminor Luna Rossa GMT – 44mm was designed for the Luna Rossa Challenge Team, Challenger of Record of the 36th America’s Cup, and has established itself as the ultimate sportsman’s watch. A superlative blend of resilience and perseverance, this special edition has all the makings of a champion.
Engineered for Success
Inspired by the team’s revolutionary full-foiling monohull AC75 Luna Rossa, this water-resistant edition features a grade 2 titanium case and bezel, and a dial crafted using the fabric of Luna Rossa sails.
SUBMERSIBLE ECOPANGAEA™ TOURBILLON Mike Horn Edition
Limited to just five timepieces, the new Panerai Submersible EcoPangaea™ Tourbillon GMT – 50mm Mike Horn edition allows buyers to experience a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in the Arctic with explorer and brand ambassador Mike Horn.
Eco-Engineered for Excellence
A precision instrument like no other, this limited edition features a case made from EcoPangaea™, high-tech steel composed of recycled metal from Horn’s sailing ship. This collaboration between the legendary adventurer and Panerai exemplifies a shared commitment to exploring, and defending, our planet.
THE EPITOME OF ENDURANCE
A class all its own, the extraordinary Luminor Marina Carbotech™ – 44 mm and Luminor Marina – 44mm, with titanium DMLS case and Carbotech™ bezel, embody innovation, endurance, and performance—cornerstones of the Panerai brand. The addition of these watches to the recently re-launched Luminor Marina family signifies a decisive esthetic change characterized by the timepiece’s two most unique features: its light-weight and ultra-resilient Carbotech™ case and a Sandwich™ dial with blue Super-LumiNova™ markings.
