Introduced at SIHH 2017 in January, and set for release to an impatient Paneristi world next month, the new niche Panerai Submersible collection is solid and strong, with unrivalled visibility even at great depths and a uniquely distinctive appearance: the new Panerai Submersible watches are professional divers watches drawing inspiration from the history of the brand and their use by Italian Navy underwater commandos, but with a host of innovative technical solutions. Here are details of three new watches on offer.
LUMINOR SUBMERSIBLE 1950 AMAGNETIC 3 DAYS AUTOMATIC TITANIO – 47 MM PAM01389
The Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanio is the latest version of the first anti-magnetic watch produced by Panerai, with a new movement, the P.9010 automatic caliber with a power reserve of three days, and modified design resulting from the reduction in the thickness of the case and the perfecting of some details of the dial. The construction enables its extremely high resistance to magnetic fields: 40,000 A/m (ampère/metre), a figure more than eight times greater than that stipulated by international standards (NIHS 90-10). Such a high limit has been achieved thanks to a special inner case made of soft iron which insulates the movement, forming a Faraday cage which deflects the flux of magnetic fields. The soft iron case is immediately below the dial which is made of the same material. A matt black ceramic disc applied to the rotating titanium bezel set with studs forming a graduated scale for calculating times of immersion. Water resistant to 300 meters. Price: $11,600
