We partnered with luxury watch brand Officine Panerai to produce a limited edition collection of watches. The focus on excellence and innovation that we share with Panerai has been reflected in each of the timepieces.
The Luminor 1950 Sealand watches combine high technical skill with a long tradition of knowledge and experience. Each individual case is engraved by hand by skilled craftsmen, as with Purdey’s guns and rifles, and requires more than a week of work on the particularly demanding and robust AISI 316L stainless steel. The steel has corrosion resistant, anti-magnetic and hypoallergenic qualities.
This unique collection is made up of 80 numbered pieces that are engraved with the Big Five game animals: lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino. The motifs are first drawn as a temporary outline, using powdered chalk or magnesium powder, and then engraved with a burin. The engraved surfaces are formed of very thin parallel lines which give depth to the design, accentuating the contrasts between light and dark. The outer edges of the watch feature gold inlay and a pattern inspired from African art. The Panerai Luminor 1950 Sealand 3 Days Automatic Acciaio watch is equipped with a P.9000 calibre.
The water resistant calf straps of the watches are made from a particularly smooth, flexible leather with a remarkable aesthetic finish and high technical qualities. Each piece is presented in a pear tree wood box with accompanying tools and an additional black rubber strap.
The retail price of each watch in this exclusive collection is £20,500.
