The unique quality of the Panerai Luminor Submersible
As with all diving watches, the dial of the Panerai Luminor Submersible is functional and clearly laid out: indices, zero seconds, hour and minute hands and small seconds are designed and skeletonised with the eponymous illuminating Luminor. As the models are designed for underwater use, the chronographs are equipped with robust rubber straps as a standard feature.
Depending on the model, the Panerai Luminor Submersible consists of a robust and stable titanium or steel housing. In 2015 with the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech, the manufacturer launched another innovative casing material for its diving watches: carbotech. For the first time, this composite material made from carbon fibres was used in watchmaking. In 2017, the company showcased its next technical innovation with the launch of the Luminor Submersible 1950 BMG-Tech. This innovative bulk metallic glass is resistant to scratches and bumps.
The Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950: Irresistible retro charm
With the 1950 collection, the Panerai Luminor Submersible not only builds on the military watches of the same name from Panerai but models such as the Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days. This has a soft iron casing which shields the movement from damaging magnetic fields. The Submersible 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic on the other hand, not only offers a three-day power reserve but also a practical automatic flyback that enables stopping, resetting and starting with just one push of a button.
