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.
