In order to remain consistent from A to Z in terms of sustainable development, a second likewise recycled rubber strap is provided.

Size sometimes matters

Do you have the intermediate size? For once, the answer is YES! Available in 42 and 47mm versions, the Submersible collection now also comes in a 44mm case, hence the name “QuarantaQuattro”. Going off the beaten track by not following the fashion for smaller cases – and thus remaining true to its DNA, – Panerai is nevertheless showing sensitivity to the diversity and needs of today’s society by offering an additional variation of its deep-sea model, which retains the same technical characteristics as its two sisters. Making this a firm favorite on medium-sized wrists, these few millimeters make all the difference.
