The Zenith family grows as Francisco Cerúndolo joins the Swiss watchmaker as a ‘Friend of the Brand.’ Despite being a relative newcomer to the sport, the young tennis player from Argentina has already established himself as one of the sport’s top up-and-coming contenders. Cerúndolo rose to prominence as one of the most promising players after winning his maiden ATP Tour title in Båstad last year, subsequently his second title in Eastbourne before his historic victory at Wimbledon this year.

The rising star expressed his excitement at joining Zenith, saying, “It is a dream come true to be associated with a legendary Swiss watch manufacturer that embodies innovation, precision, and a drive to reach new heights.” On top of that, Zenith CEO Julien Tornare adds that Cerúndolo had been chosen to represent the House because he remains true to himself and what he stands for, which is what Zenith is all about.

Just in time for Malaysia’s independence day, Panerai reveals the special edition timepiece Luminor Malaysia Special Edition (PAM 01957). The freshly released stunner sports a 44m sandblasted titanium DLC case and the beloved Luminor sandwich dial in matte green that celebrates feelings of abundance, rejuvenation and peace.

When looked at closely, an embossing of the Siluro a Lenta Corsa (SLC)—the human torpedo used by the Italian Navy—can be spotted on top of the six o’clock position. However, the most striking feature is the engraving of the KLCC Twin Towers on the back of the watch—a tribute to the bustling metropolis of Kuala Lumpur. More importantly, this timepiece is powered by the P.500 calibre and offers an exceptional eight-day power reserve.

Limited to 140 pieces, the Panerai Luminor Malaysia Special Edition is priced at RM43,900 and is available in Panerai’s Pavilion Kuala Lumpur boutique as well as selected retail partner Swiss Watch Gallery boutiques.
