BMG-TECH™ is a Game Changer

Panerai Just Made Its Classic Submersible Dive Watch Even Tougher


June 14, 2019 Briefings By

Panerai makes some of the toughest luxury watches in the game, timepieces that can handle the pressure of deep ocean dives and never miss a beat. But recently the brand upped the ante by putting out the toughest option you can get: the Submersible BMG-TECH™. That isn’t to say that this 47mm timepiece is any less refined or luxurious than you would expect from such a vaunted Italian watchmaker. This is partly because the new measure of ruggedness comes from something you can’t see — this is the first mechanical watch featuring a case made of BMG-TECH™, a bulk metallic glass with a disordered atomic structure. This means the watch is harder and lighter than steel while also maintaining high corrosion resistance so it can keep taking hard knocks for a long, long time. The 47mm Submersible BMG-TECH™ also boasts Incabloc anti-shock movement protection and a deep blue dial with bright, distinctive luminous indices. As reassuring to look at as it is to use in the water, this Panerai is a new fixture in the world of dive watches that’s more than eager to earn the status of a legend.
