Razer and Panerai continue to make waves with the unveiling of the Luminor Quaranta Razer Special Edition
Last RazerCon, Razer announced its partnership with luxury watch manufacturer, Panerai to preserve the oceans, calling upon fans to “make time for our ocean”. Since then, the two companies have joined forces to invest in research to support marine species focusing on manta rays.
A year later at RazerCon 2022, Razer and Panerai have finally unveiled the highly anticipated limited edition Luminor Quaranta Razer Special Edition. Jointly designed by the two brands, the watch combines Panerai’s watchmaking know-how with Razer’s iconic aesthetic. Inspired by Razer’s signature colors, the sandwich dial features Super-LumiNova® that illuminates green, complimenting the electric green on the small seconds hand, and strap stitching of the timepiece. Subtle engraving of the triple-headed snake can also be found on the caseback and dial, while the unmistakable Razer wordmark is displayed on the crown-protection bridge.
In a nod to both brands’ sustainability efforts, the watch is made of recycled materials with the strap created from recycled PET that was derived from post-consumer plastic bottles. The 40mm case is also composed of eSteel™, a next generation metal made of recycled steel and coated with DLC (diamond like carbon coating). Furthermore, the packaging is composed of 72% recycled material.
There will be only 500 pieces available for sale exclusively through Panerai boutiques and Panerai.com.
