A CLASSIC PANERAI, FAITHFUL TO TRADITION BUT UPDATED WITH A P.9010 MANUFACTURE MOVEMENT AND A DIAL OF EXEMPLARY LEGIBILITY UNDER ALL LIGHTING CONDITIONS OR IN THE DEPTHS OF THE SEA
The Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio is one of the most classic Panerai Submersibles and the new version is a very contemporary interpretation, enhanced by the technology of the P.9010 calibre and with fascinating aesthetic details which, like all Panerai watches, are the result of its particular functions.
The whole case is made of titanium, a material with excellent corrosion and external shocks resistance, as well as being light, therefore ideal for reducing the weight of a case 47 mm in diameter. All the markings and hands on the black dial are white, apart from the Panerai blue small seconds hand at 9 o’clock. There is maximum legibility under normal lighting conditions as well as in the dark, thanks to the use of Super-LumiNova® applied to the markers, hands and graduated scale. At night – or underwater – the minute hand and the stud at 12 o’clock on the bezel glow with a bright blue colour instead of the traditional fluorescent green of all the other markers, so as to provide an even clearer reference point and to avoid any possibility of confusion in calculating times of immersion. Water-resistance is ensured to 30 bar (about 300 metres).
The P.9010 calibre has a power reserve of three days and the spring barrels are constantly wound by a bi-directional oscillating weight. The movement has two other very useful functions: the mechanism for stopping the balance wheel when synchronising the watch, and the device for changing the time quickly: the hour hand can be moved forwards or backwards in jumps of one hour, without interfering with the running of the watch.
The watch is supplied with a strong, functional black rubber strap with a decidedly sporty look, closed by a titanium buckle.
