The marks on a man’s watch tell a story but for Mike Horn, the scars on his Panerai only capture a glimpse of what he has experienced and accomplished in his life. Horn’s a World Explorer — he’s swam the entire length of the Amazon river with a broken knee, been to the North Pole in the winter and has been to parts of the World most can’t even fathom. He’s done it all while wearing a specially developed, triple cased Panerai, the PAM 92 Arktos.
Ben Clymer of Hodinkee and Sean Sullivan of The Impossible Cool were recently invited by the folks at Panerai to take a trip aboard the Pangaea which is manned by Horn and his two teammates. Nowadays, the world explorer is on a four year world tour on the 109 foot all-aluminum manual sail boat. The mission? To show “young explorers how they can help save the planet that Horn has seen from so many different angles.”
