Guided by Panerai’s Laboratorio di Idee’s relentless pioneering methods for contemporary watchmaking, the brand created a watch out of recycled materials with a total weight of 98.6%. amount of PAM01225. Why not 100%? COO Jerome Cavadini told us that doing so would increase the watch’s carbon footprint to the point where it would turn the series into a hopeless exercise. Bragging rights alone isn’t enough, and it’s nice to know that the watchmaker isn’t just putting out a marketing message here.
The case, sandwich dial and bridge are made of EcoTitanium, an aerospace grade lightweight recycled titanium alloy made from more than 80% pure recycled ingredients. Panerai introduced this material a few years ago. In addition to the structural components, the PAM01225 is the first watch to use 100% recycled SuperLuminova on the dial and hands and 100% recycled silicon for its movement escapement; The watch hands and its sapphire crystal also contain recycled materials. Only 30 PAM01225 will be made while a more extensive commercial launch is available as Luminor eSteel, also released in Watches & Wonders 2021. This eSteel is new for 2021.
