| 1 Comment
Mike Horn is a South African-born Swiss professional explorer and adventurer which became famous in 2001 after completing a one-year, 6-month solo journey around the equator without any motorised transport. In 2006 he became the first man to travel without dog or motorised transport to the North Pole during winter, in permanent darkness.

In 2016, Horn has started the "Pole2Pole" expedition, a two-year circumnavigation of the globe via the South and North Pole travelling  land and sea from Africa to Antarctica, Oceania, Asia, the Arctic, and back to Europe.

For this adventure Mike Horn wears a special edition watch created by Panerai, the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days GMT Pole2Pole PAM00719 that will be produced in a limited series of 500 units.


The 47 mm brushed titanium case of the new model features a unidirectional brushed titanium bezel with polished edges and dive-time scale and the patented crown protecting device which contributes to guarantee a water-resistance to 300 meters / 990 feet.



A corundum-formed sapphire crystal protects the midnight blue dial with applied hour marker dots heavily coated with Super-LumiNova. Printed in yellow, the ‘Pole2Pole’ inscription matches the GMT hand as well as the sub-seconds dial at 9 o’clock.


The PAM719 is powered by the in-house Panerai P.9001 calibre, an automatic mechanical movement whose functions include: hours, minutes, small seconds, date, GMT, power reserve indicator on the back and seconds reset. Beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour, it features two barrels for a three-day power reserve.


The beautiful expedition logo, consisting of the animals symbolizing the two poles, the polar bear and the penguin, is engraved on the case back together with Mike Horn’s signature.



The new Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days GMT Pole2Pole Ref. PAM00719 has a retail price of Swiss Francs 9,600. panerai.com
