A Closer Look at The Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech
Following in the same lines as the Submersible Mike Horn and Submersible Guillaume Néry, this Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech is the third in the arrangement of extremely restricted version Panerai watches that are bundled with novel and elite encounters. For this situation, you’re taking a gander at two days of preparing with an uncommon Commando unit of the Italian Navy, yet before we get to that, we need to examine a couple of other key subtleties.

The Panerai Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech
Its 47mm case, however strong from a visual angle, is a genuine featherlight because of its Carbotech development. Much as we’ve seen somewhere else with “restrictive” materials, Carbotech is Panerai’s own carbon fiber-based composite that they’ve been utilizing for cases as of late.
This time around, it is utilized for both the case and dial of the Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech. The natural surface of each piece is somewhat extraordinary, as the case and bezel has such a wood grain feel to it, while the dial is more theoretical – practically nearer to shooting star in appearance than anything. All things considered, the two subtleties give the watch a fascinating covertness/camouflage kind of look, complemented by its olive dreary accents (white accents are utilized on the non-restricted release form of the watch).
Looking at its lumed records, we have something new here from Panerai. They are not painted, nor are they part of a multi-piece sandwich dial. All things considered, strong puck-like squares of lume make up the applied files on its dial. In spite of the fact that you wouldn’t see in light, the lume plot on the moment hand and on its bezel are a somewhat more pale blue hint than its records. Flipping it over, we have the coat of arms of the COMSUBIN – one of the two tip top Italian maritime powers that buyers of this watch will actually want to prepare with.

COMSUBIN is short for Comando Raggruppamento Subacquei ed Incursori Teseo Tesei , and however this name was just officially embraced in the mid 1960s, their underlying foundations follow back to the Decima MAS – the primary current underwater combat arm of the Italian Navy. The Decima MAS were an exceptionally powerful unit in World War II, and were most notable for their utilization of monitored torpedoes that effectively obliterated a critical tally of unified boats somewhere in the range of 1940 and 1945.
Based in La Spiza since their beginning, these forte powers are freely what might be compared to US Navy SEALS, with units that operate both on and underneath the surface. The shade of green utilized for the elastic tie and files of the Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech is taken straightforwardly from the uniform shades of the current ComSubIn, which is a cool detail, however I don’t presume you’ll at any point see this watch on the wrist of one of the unit’s enrolled individuals. During the two preparing days that come with the buy with this watch, members will prepare with the two units.

Limited to Just 33 Pieces
One of the intriguing insights concerning this piece that most lovers will not immediately know about (and one that Panerai isn’t even truly communicating about) is the reason they decided to restrict the piece to 33 units rather than 10 or 15. The number was picked in light of the fact that 33 is the quantity of gold awards of honor that were gotten by individuals from the Decima MAS and its replacement organizations, a considerable lot of whom were murdered in real life. Colleagues like Teseo Tesei and others were answerable for laying the foundation that made the ComSubIn what it is today.
What I discover exceptional about this watch is the straightforward actuality that regardless of whether you’re not a military history buff, and paying little mind to the amount you know or care pretty much this, the piece is simply so first rate that it’s still extremely engaging at an item level. So frequently when brands go down the hare opening of attempting to be verifiably huge, or give recognition to something, they lose sight on great plan (think Range Rover Zenith, or Hublot Ferrari watches for example).
When I initially saw this piece my throaty response was “man, that’s simply cool”, and the more I explored, the really fascinating the story became. I trust that a portion of Panerai’s sister brands under the Richemont umbrella observe how to do plan inspiration appropriately in a manner that doesn’t deter those external the focused on specialty.
For the individuals who would prefer to avoid the involvement in the Italian Navy, the non-restricted adaptation of the Submersible Marina Militare Carbotech with white accents is accessible for generally a large portion of the cost. (Picture: Panerai)
