Watches & Wonders 2021: Panerai

The Florentine watchmaker is presenting its novelties and the first thing that comes to mind is sustainability. Panerai is taking to another level and we are loving it.


The Submersible eLAB-IDTM is an unprecedented achievement in the history of the watch industry. A total of 98.6% of its weight comes from materials integrating a high rate of recycled elements. Its case, sandwich dial and bridges are composed of EcoTitaniumTM, a recycled titanium alloy that is a lightweight aerospace-grade metal made of more than 80% pure recycled content.

The Submersible eLAB-IDTM is the first watch to use 100% recycled SuperLuminovaTM on its dial and hands and 100% recycled silicon for its movement escapement. Both are obtained through dedicated, small-scale recycling processes that reuse raw material waste. From the sapphire crystal to the gold hands, most of the major components contain recycled- based material.


A new watch in a limited edition of just 200 pieces marks Panerai’s return to the field of chronography. The Luminor Chrono Monopulsante GMT Blu Notte is a single-button column wheel chronograph, which combines the start/stop/reset functions in a single push-piece. It is also equipped with the GMT function, allowing the home time and local time to be displayed simultaneously.

Water-resistant to 10 bar (more than 100 meters deep), the new Luminor Chrono Monopulsante GMT Blu Notte stands out for a black sandblasted ceramic case in 44mm, based on Zirconium Oxide powder.


89g of the Luminor Marina eSteelTM components are made of recycled-based materials, corresponding to the 58,4% of the total weight of the watch (that is 152,4g). Both the case and dial of Luminor Marina eSteelTM feature the new recycled-based steel alloy.

The Luminor Marina eSteel features a brushed case with a polished bezel, a rubberized crown and the lever is personalized with the eSteel logo. The watches are available in three dial colors: Blu Profondo, Grigio Roccia and Verde Smeraldo, the last of which is exclusive to Panerai boutiques and e-commerce.


Panerai’s advanced chronograph celebrates the audacity of the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team and allows enthusiasts to bring the sensation of racing against time to any activity, professional or personal, athletic or otherwise.


The new watch features a deep blue sandwich dial, with sporty graphics and a tachymeter scale on the flange, designed to extend its use on land. Red and white details, Luna Rossa, enrich the dial.
