Bronze has been part of Panerai’s strategy for the Submersible since 2011, but unless you had the wrist for a 47mm Panerai, your only option has been steel. Now, in a limited production of 1,000 units, you can have the 42mm in bronze. While I wouldn’t describe myself as a huge fan of bronze watches, I do think that a bronze Submersible makes a lot of sense and draws on the aesthetic lineage of old-world nautical tools. That said, the blue suede strap may be for landlubbers.
