Watchmaker Panerai is celebrating freediver Guillaume Néry’s achievements with the release of the Panerai Luminor Marina 44mm Guillaume Néry Edition.
The watch features a host of advanced features, including a body cast from sandblasted DMLS titanium. It also features a protective black rubber coating on the bezel, crown, and lever.
Discussing his career and the new watch, Néry stated about his career:
“In 2022, I’ll be 40. Being at the best level possible for as long as possible is one of my aims. I hate the idea of not being an athlete any more. Even at 50 years old, I will be an athlete. It’s a way of life, not just a career.”
While discussing his new watch, Néry was far more reflective, stating:
“Everything changes when I go into the water. The only thing that comes with me that I have out of it is my watch. It reminds me I’m human and that I have to come back to the surface.”
The Panerai Luminor Marina 44mm Guillaume Néry Edition retails for £17,100/~US$23,360 /~€19,270.
