Crafted from recycled titanium using a 3D printing process and powered by one of its advanced Laboratorio di Idee movements, the new Panerai Submersible S BRABUS eTitanio PAM01403 Replica builds upon the brand’s previous collaboration pieces with the automotive tuning house to create a new version of Panerai’s signature sports model that showcases a novel sustainable alloy and a high-tech manufacturing process that allows the brand to produce extra-lightweight titanium cases.
The case still measures a sizable 47mm in diameter, and just like its predecessors, it is fitted with a unidirectional rotating timing bezel that is crafted from Best Panerai Super Clone Carbotech carbon composite material. Sapphire crystals cover both the dial side of the watch and its display caseback; however, the middle case is now made from eTitanio, and it, therefore, showcases the natural gray tones of the metal that have been given a brushed finish.
The key advantage of this manufacturing method is that it allows cases to be formed in complex shapes that would otherwise be virtually impossible with traditional machining methods. By having the internal case band be a hollow structure, the middle case of the new Submersible S BRABUS eTitanio PAM01403 Replica Watches China is able to be approximately 30% lighter than a standard titanium case of the same size, while also still maintaining its generous 300 meters of water resistance.
While this new eTitanio version is slightly heavier than the Black Ops Edition that featured a full-Carbotech case, it is still impressively light for its size, and its lightweight nature almost comes off as more of a surprise due to the fact that the case is made from metal instead of carbon composite. The 47mm case diameter alone makes the Panerai Replica Watches a bit too large for what I can reasonably pull off on my fairly small wrists, although with a total weight of just 115 grams.
The skeletonized dial of the new Panerai Submersible S BRABUS eTitanio PAM01403 appears to have been carried over from the previous Black Ops Edition, complete with its red highlights and optical polar date window, which consists of a clear calendar disc with a polarized lens over the aperture at 3 o’clock.
While the dial and hands fitted to the new Panerai Submersible Replica appear to be identical to what can be found on the previous Black Ops Edition, their red, black, and gray color profile is equally complementary to the largely black and gray colorway of the new PAM01403 and its 3D-printed titanium case.
Powering the Panerai Submersible S BRABUS eTitanio PAM01403 is the same Caliber P.4001/S automatic movement, which features a skeletonized design with a tungsten micro-rotor, and it also offers the added utility of both GMT functionality and a power reserve indicator.
Running at a frequency of 28,800vph (4 Hz) with a power reserve of approximately 72 hours, the Panerai Replica with 80% Discount Cal. P.4001/S features a second centrally-mounted hour hand with a dedicated AM/PM indicator embedded within the red-accented running seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock.
Completing the new Panerai Submersible First Copy Watches is a duo of black straps that taper from 26mm at the lugs down to 22mm where they connect to their buckles. The first of the two straps is a bi-material option constructed from rubber with a calf leather overlay, while the second is a black fabric strap with a rubberized lining that is made from 68% recycled PET that has been reclaimed from post-consumer waste.
