It is, after all, the official watch of the 35th running of this storied event, taking place later this year in Bermuda. Panerai took inspiration for the design from a model it produced for the Italian navy. The case is made from AISI 316L brushed stainless, and the movement is mechanical, with a power reserve of three days. A lever protects the crown from shock and exerts light pressure to guarantee water resistance to a depth of about 985 feet. Panerai limited production to 300 watches. $11,200.
