To salute the adventurous spirit of Jimmy Chin in a unique way, Panerai has joined hands with the legendary filmmaker and professional climber for a watch collection that also entails a memorable experience to Jackson Hole in the United States.
The collaboration features two luxury time-pieces – the PAM01207 (priced at $19,400 USD and complete with a 47mm brushed titanium case and bezel) and PAM01208 (priced at $43,200 USD and complete with a brushed titanium DLC case with a titanium ceramic bezel). Both are powered by the Panerai P.9100 automatic movement feature 300 meters of water resistance and are finished with a bespoke case back mimicking a high-contrast palette drawn from icy mountain landscapes.
True to the very essence of the partnership is the Xperience Edition that entails an opportunity to join an excursion to Jackson Hole, where Chin resides for the most part of the year. Participants stand a chance to get up close and personal with a man himself, indulge in outdoor adventures, including climbing and wakeboarding and a one-to-one photography seminar.
Commenting on it, Jimmy Chin said, “So much of my work has to do with storytelling that will broaden the understanding of the world around us. I was attracted to collaborating with Panerai because of the brand’s unique story and long heritage of creating tools that enable exploration, and I’m honored that Panerai created two watches that take inspiration from my journey.”
Could it get any better than this?
