Luminor Submersible 1950 2500m 3 Days Automatic Titanio - 47mm

A professional instrument of exceptional performance

The Watch Quote™ - August 2nd, 2013

In its long history, Officine Panerai has often been involved with the world of the deep, creating watches capable of operating at extreme depths. With the new Luminor Submersible 1950 2500m 3 Days Automatic Titanio, Officine Panerai continues this long tradition, closely linked to its own history, enriching it with new technical content to offer underwater watch enthusiasts a professional instrument of exceptional performance.

The Luminor 1950 case, 47 mm in diameter, of the Luminor Submersible 1950 2500m 3 Days Automatic Titanio is made of brushed titanium, a material which combines non-allergenic properties and lightness with the structural robustness required to resist high pressures, external stresses and corrosion. The water-resistance, also ensured by the classic Panerai device protecting the winding crown, is guaranteed to a depth of 2,500 metres, and the little valve engraved with the He symbol on the caseband at eight o’clock enables helium to escape when ascending from deep dives, thus preventing the gas exercising potentially dangerous pressure on the case.

The unidirectional rotating bezel, which moves precisely in one-minute clicks thanks to a special system patented by Officine Panerai, has small markers in relief, the design of which has been inspired by the model created in 1956 for the Egyptian Navy, and a graduated scale which enables the length of the dive to be read.

Protected by a sapphire crystal with a thickness of 5.9 mm, the hour markers on the black dial are bars or studs, applied in relief and coated with a luminous substance, as are the wide, partially skeletonised hands, thus ensuring optimum visibility even in the depths of the sea. A subsidiary dial at nine o’clock has a small seconds hand moving continuously, while the date window is at three o’clock.

The movement of the Luminor Submersible 1950 2500m 3 Days Automatic Titanio is the automatic P.9000 calibre, designed and produced entirely in the Officine Panerai manufacture in Neuchâtel. With a diameter of 133⁄4 lignes and 28 jewels, the P.9000 calibre has a balance wheel with four regulating screws, which makes 28,800 alternations/hour. The single-piece oscillating weight can rotate in both directions and two spring barrels store a power reserve of three days.

Identified by the reference PAM00364, the new Luminor Submersible 1950 2500m 3 Days Automatic Titanio is part of the Special Edition collection and has been produced in an edition limited to 500 units. Completing it is a rubber strap, fastened by a large trapezoid-shaped buckle in brushed titanium. The strap is easily changed by means of the button fitted in the lug of the watch, which is operated by the special tool provided.
