Introducing PANERAI’s latest Titanium Anti-Magnetic Professional Diver, unveiled, today at SIHH 2017 as part of SIX new Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic models – all powered by Panerai’s in-house 9010 caliber. Of the 6 new Submersibles –
one is in BRONZO Ref.PAM00671, released as part of the Special Editions collection, one is in ACCIAO (steel) Ref. PAM00682, one is in ORO ROSSO (rose gold) Ref. PAM00684, two are in TITANIO Ref. PAM01305 and Ref. PAM01389 which is also anti-magnetic resistant, and the last one is in a new a brand-new space-age material called BMG-TECH™ Ref. PAM00692.
This is the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Amagnetic Automatic Titanio 47MM AKA PAM01389; beneath its dial is a special soft iron case forming a Faraday cage that protects and isolates the movement from the flow of magnetic fields.
This model guarantees a resistance to magnetic fields equal to 40,000 A/m (Ampère/metre), a limit more than eight times greater than the value specified by the international standards of the Normes de lndustrie Horlogère Suisse (NIHS 90-10).
In extreme conditions, and in everyday life, watches are often exposed to magnetic fields generated by electric charges and currents. Such magnetic fields can noticeably alter the rate of the watch, a possibility that is virtually non-existent in the new Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanio.
Applied to the rotational Titanium bezel, inspired by that of the models made by Panerai for the Egyptian Navy in the 1950s, is a matt black ceramic inlay, on which the linear and dot-shaped Titanium markers are fixed. The bezel rotates only in an anti-clockwise direction, to prevent accidental shocks interfering with the measurement of dive-time.
The movement of this special Submersible is the P.9000, which offers a convenient system for regulating the hour hand that can be moved backwards and forwards in jumps of exactly one hour, correspondingly changing also the date display. Entirely designed and created at the Officine Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, the P.9000 is 13¾ lignes in diameter and has 28 jewels, a variable inertia balance and an Incabloc® anti-shock device.
The movement is characterized by the precision of its construction and the two barrels which are constantly charged by the oscillating weight in both directions, thus ensuring a 3-day power reserve.
