anerai’s new Submersible Blu Notte is the first Panerai Submersible 42mm watch with a metal bracelet. The instantly recognizable crown-protection device inspired the bracelet’s design. The profile of the device, which was originally invented to assure water resistance and prevent accidental contact with the crown, appears on each link of the bracelet, accentuated by a combination of polished and brushed finishes.
With the patented Panerai interchangeable strap system, removing the bracelet in favor of a strap whenever the mood strikes is effortless. By using a tool available in the watch storage box, it is possible to push a button at the back of the lugs, which releases the bracelet, allowing a change in just a moment.
The Submersible Blu Notte’s sunbrushed blue dial reflects light with brilliance and vitality that responds to every movement it makes; its legibility is heightened by the presence of hands, dots and indices filled with white Super-LumiNovaTM.
The watch features a steel bezel composed of a deep blue ceramic in the same color as the dial, the uni-directional counter-clockwise bezel intensifies the monochromatic unity of the watch and is a resistant tool for calculating immersion time.
One of the slimmest movements in the Panerai portfolio, the P.900 caliber animates the Submersible Blu Notte, complementing its lean, refined proportions and nesting seamlessly within the 42mm case. The automatic movement features a three-day power reserve and is an instrument entirely realized by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel.
The Submersible Blu Notte is water-resistant up to 30 bar (about 300 meters deep). In addition to its steel bracelet, it is accompanied by a black strap in SportechTM with contrasting blue stitching and Velcro closure, a tool for interchangeability, a screwdriver and a storage box, whose outer part is made of recycled ABS plastic.
