The Next Hour Neuchâtel
Fbg de l’Hôpital 78
2000 Neuchâtel

Fascinating works of nature, the basalt columns are created from volcanic eruptions. The new Fibratech™️ material used by Panerai for the first time in watchmaking comes from these marvels from the bowels of the Earth. Fibratech™️ is a composite with interesting physical and mechanical properties. More affordable than carbon fibers, more light and resistant than steel, Fibratech™️ or derivatives could become a key player in watchmaking. With its new PAM01119 limited edition with Fibratech™️ components, Panerai expands its offer with a new product range.



A specialist in watchmaking journalism, Michel is the founder of The Next Hour. Fascinated by the fundamental issues related to communication and social networks, convinced that watchmaking still has a very large audience to capture beyond the circle of connoisseurs, he launched The Next Hour to chart a course and make this medium a fun and informative meeting place of quality. Michel is also a member of the Cultural Council of the Fondation de la Haute horlogerie and a member of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève Academy.
