MAKE TIME FOR OUR OCEAN
As part of our #GoGreenWithRazer initiative, we’re diving into the deep blue with Panerai to make every second count when it comes to ocean conservation.
This exclusive collaboration proudly presents the Luminor Quaranta Razer Special Edition—a timepiece that merges luxury horology with the iconic aesthetic of Razer.Learn More >
Jointly partnered with Conservation International Asia-Pacific, both Razer and Panerai are proud to support the vital marine species research they do—an ongoing endeavor with a vision towards manta ray conservation.Learn More >
The logos of Razer, Panerai, and Conservation International (Asia-Pacific) appear against a black background.

The three logos of Razer, Panerai, and Conservation International (Asia-Pacific) fade in.
In 2022, Conservation International has tagged 10 oceanic mantas for observation and we will continue to monitor their journeys around the Pacific.
One of the tagged manta rays revealed astonishing insights—a significant migration distance of over 3000km in 3 months and 3 deep dives below 800m, including her deepest dive to 1264m.
With the help of photo identification, drones, satellite, and acoustic tracking, Conservation International and other scientists have potentially identified a previously unknown manta nursery in Australia—a tremendous discovery for the future of manta conservation in the region.
Through studying the swimming and feeding behaviors of manta rays, a range of creative feeding techniques have been observed. Aside from feeding on the surface of the water, manta rays also partake in bottom feeding—swallowing plankton that are hovering above the sea floor—and somersault feeding, where they create small vertical whirlpools to concentrate plankton before eating them.
In 2022, one of the oceanic mantas tagged by Conservation International Asia-Pacific made an astonishing deep dive of 1383 meters, exceeding the height of the tallest building in the world—the Burj Khalifa standing at 828 meters! It is hypothesized that manta rays engaged in quick deep dives to help them orientate and navigate through their migration.
With Conservation International’s tireless work in manta ray tagging, we’ve learnt that oceanic mantas migrate from New Zealand during winter to warmer waters in Fiji and Tonga, before returning the following summer.
With both brands’ commitment to sustainability, recycled materials are a critical component of the Luminor Quaranta Razer Special Edition watch. The Luminor Quaranta Razer Special Edition has blazed a trail into the legendary Luminor collection—a highly-celebrated pillar within the Panerai family of time-honored, adventure-ready watches.
Limited to 500 pieces worldwide. Available exclusively through Panerai boutiques and Panerai.com.

The camera enters a dim environment cast in an electric green light, as we see a matte black Panerai
Luminor Quaranta watch assembling in thin air.
On one of the pieces near the crown, we notice the Razer wordmark etched into its design.

The camera cuts to a front angle of the watch, as we see its dark gray watch face—etched with Razer’s iconic Triple-Headed Snake logo—slide into its casing.
An electric green neon tube flashes across the camera as the watch rotates to reveal its caseback, similarly etched with the Razer wordmark and logo.

As the watch continues rotating, a backdrop of floating electric green neon tubes slides into view—the watch’s dark design standing out against the bright environment.
Suddenly, the environment goes black as the watch tumbles into the abyss.
In the darkness, the watch hands, hour markers, and sub dial glow brightly in electric green, revealing their luminous nature.

The Panerai logo appears once again, as the brand tagline glitches in: Laboratorio di Idee
Outfitted with a 40mm case forged with eSteel™—a cutting-edge recycled-based material that exhibits the same rigorous properties as its traditional counterpart—the watch bears a striking diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating and the iconic Razer triple-headed snake (THS) on the dial.
Featuring two interchangeable straps, showcase your support for sustainability with the recycled PET strap or swap it out for a black rubber strap to switch up your style.
The timepiece will be delivered in packaging composed of 72% recycled material and made of FSC certified paper.
Inspired by Razer’s iconic aesthetic, the sandwich hand features Super-LumiNova® that illuminates green to resonate with the electric green on the small seconds hand and strap stitching of the timepiece. The watch also proudly displays the unmistakable Razer wordmark on the crown-protection bridge and the iconic Razer THS emblazoned on the caseback.
People need nature – and for over 30 years, Conservation International has worked to protect it. Through cutting-edge science, innovative policy, and global reach, they empower people to protect the nature that we all rely on for food, fresh water, and livelihoods. In the Asia-Pacific, Conservation International has been implementing conservation programs for over 20 years.
The oceans are the origin and engine of all life on this planet – and they are in extreme peril. Unprecedented sea-level rise and dangerously warming waters caused by climate change are among a list of grim impacts predicted by a recent United Nations report. Immediate and transformative action is needed to prevent the UN’s stark warning from becoming a reality. We need to protect at least 30 percent of the world’s ocean for it to continue to provide food, climate stability, and healthy ecosystems.
Conservation International Asia-Pacific has extensive experience in ocean conservation, working with businesses, governments, and communities to protect the ocean in the region. Using innovative tools, technologies, and approaches to prioritize marine protected areas, fisheries management, and equipping coastal communities with the tools needed to mitigate climate change, Conservation International Asia-Pacific has worked to protect 3.5 million km2 of ocean and their marine scientists have discovered over 1,000 new vertebrate species.
