at the SIHH 2019 in geneva, a partnership of excelling performance and dedication was declared. panerai’s ‘submersible luna rossa’ timepiece announced the brand as the official sponsor of the luna rossa sailing boat, the challenger of the 36th edition of the america’s cup – the oldest sports competition in the modern era. the special edition watch will be worn by the sailing team headed by massimiliano ‘max’ sirena.

made up of 199 components, the panerai ‘submersible luna rossa’ watch is defined by its 47mm diameter case that is colored in a dark gray sail with luminous hour markers and dots. the dial literally conceals pieces of the sails that will be used for the boat. on the rear, the luna rossa logo and america’s cup profile is engraved on the titanium rear in order to commemorate the special collaboration. finally, the design is complete with a variety of choices for the strap and buckle.

the case itself is made from carbotech, a composite material manufactured from thin sheets of carbon fiber that are compressed under temperature together with a polymer. the result is a strong, more durable material that is ideal for performance as well as aesthetics. it is also water resistant to a diving standard – 300 meters – and uses a unidirectional rotating bezel to measure the duration of the expedition.
