Panerai Submersible Chrono Flyback Mike Horn Limited Edition PAM01291 - 47 mm

Through single-minded dedication to each of his historic endeavors — from trekking to the North Pole in the unremitting darkness of winter to summiting some of the world’s highest and most challenging peaks without supplemental oxygen — Mike Horn secured a place among the world’s greatest living explorers. Unwavering focus on reaching heights is a trait Panerai shares with the adventurer and environmental activist.

The Submersible Chrono Flyback Mike Horn Edition, a limited edition diving watch available in only 500 pieces, is the newest expression of a nearly twodecade collaboration with Horn and represents the brand’s flourishing tradition of creating sophisticated tools for modern heroes.

The Submersible Chrono Flyback Mike Horn Edition abounds with features able to withstand daunting conditions, beginning with a 47mm brushed titanium case that is both lightweight and highly resistant. A hard-wearing black matte ceramic ring within the unidirectional bezel provides a highly legible tool for the measurement of immersion time, while screw-down chronograph pushers deliver a superior degree of water resistance.

Applied indices in white and vivid yellow central chronograph hands punctuate the dark blue dial, a color combination that recalls a previous model inspired by Horn, the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Pole 2 Pole Limited Edition (PAM00719) from 2016. As Panerai looks to the future it treasures the past, striking a balance between continuity and novelty.

Developed as an indispensable tool for daring explorers on land or sea, the Submersible Chrono Flyback Mike Horn Edition is powered by the P.9100 movement, an automatic movement with chronograph functions. The movement features the flyback function, an advanced complication that allows the chronograph to reset and restart with one press of the pusher at eight o’clock, along with a three-day power reserve.

Water-resistant up to 30 bar (about 300 meters), the Submersible Chrono Flyback Mike Horn Edition features two straps: a blue rubber accordion strap and the new UPCamo bi-material strap composed of rubber and a camouflage fabric inspired by Italian Navy uniforms.

With the patented Panerai strap system, switching one strap for another is a simple operation that requires only an included interchangeability tool and screwdriver to remove the trapezoidal pin buckle in brushed titanium. The watches and their accessories are housed in boxes made from recycled plastic, part of an ongoing commitment by Panerai in promoting environmentally responsible practices.
