18 Apr Panerai’s Submersible eLAB-ID Watch Is The Most Sustainable Watch To Date
Have you ever thought about a sustainable watch before today? A sustainable Panerai?
Enter The Panerai Submersible eLAB-ID
With the changing demands for eco-friendly innovations, watches are next in line. With the manufacturing of recyclable materials being at its most technologically savvy, we see the introduction of the new, innovative Panerai Submersible eLAB-ID PAM01225.
What’s the difference between this and any other desirable diver from Panerai?
In fact, it’s a watch that is made from the most amount of recyclable material ever found in a watch. The watch itself gets 98.6% of its weight from recycled material which creates this new EcoTitanium material used throughout the casing and its unidirectional rotating bezel.
The movement escapement is made from 100% recycled silicone material.
The lume on the dials, it’s made from 100% recycled Superluminova material
The strap is made from recycled Grigio Rocca fabric
The hands are recycled white gold.
It’s amazing how much of the watch they managed to not only remake and remanufacture but likely create a new material in their EcoTitanium that is actually more durable than a standard casing with its innovations.

The Bottom Line
This is an exciting innovation in the progression of watch design, material science, and watch buying in general. Before, the technical achievements were more into the case development, the sapphire crystal or the movement complications. Even though those major aspects of horology will still continue, the aspect of sustainability and eco-friendly materials will not only make a statement but put pressure on other watchmakers to follow suit.
The Panerai Submersible eLAB-ID wonderful step forward in watchmaking and innovation.
