The Panerai Submersible S BRABUS Blue Shadow Edition PAM01241 is the second watch of the collaboration between the luxury watchmaker Panerai and mobility brand BRABUS. PAM01241 takes inspiration from the BRABUS Shadow 900 Deep Blue luxury dayboat, with a combination of blue and gray tones.

The Panerai Submersible S Brabus is challenged with a pair of rubber watch bands in two different colors on either side.

The 47mm case of this Panerai Submersible is made of titanium using Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) technology, which gives it a matte finish and features a Panerai Safety Lock crown protection device. The watch features a Carbotech unidirectional rotating bezel and lever of the crown protector, which is a composite material that Panerai first used in watchmaking. This material is lighter than steel or titanium and is resistant to corrosion.

Panerai was one of the first watch brands to use carbotech in the production of its timepieces, and it has since become a signature material for the brand.

One of Panerai Submersible S BRABUS Blue Shadow Edition most notable features is the Open Dial, which includes a grid and a blue ring with luminous indices for easy readability in low light. The dial also incorporates a Small Seconds display with an AM/PM indicator at 9 o'clock, a date display at 3 o'clock, and a GMT function in the center. The patented Optical Polar Date allows the date information to be displayed without obstructing the mechanics of the movement, adding to the watch's elegant design.

As a further technical refinement, the manufacture has also installed a stop-seconds mechanism with zero reset of the seconds hand. This feature makes it easy to set the time accurately and ensures that the watch always displays the correct time. The watch is powered by a skeletonized P.4001/S calibre movement with two barrels that provide a three-day power reserve.

The all-black movement consists of 341 components and 31 jewels, making it both functional and stylish. The rotor on the movement displays the Panerai logo and lettering, adding a touch of luxury to the watch's already impressive design. The watch's back is also designed with a power reserve indicator that features numerals with Super-LumiNova, ensuring easy readability in low light conditions.

The one-piece off-centered oscillating weight that enables bi-directional winding, which is made of high-density tungsten, is visible through the watch's transparent sapphire crystal. This feature allows the movement to be thinner and lighter, contributing to the overall design and wearability of the watch. Panerai PAM01241 is water-resistant up to 30 bar (approximately 300 meters) and features a patented polarized date display, limited to 200 pieces worldwide and comes with two straps.
