This is the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo 47MM AKA PAM00671 - released as part of the 2017 Special Editions collection. The bronze used to make the 47mm in diameter case as well as the iconic bridge device protecting the winding crown is an alloy of copper and pure tin known as CuSn8, which is highly resistant to the corrosive action of sea water.
As well as being structurally very strong, this material preserves its warm original tones, while acquiring an agreeably worn look from the characteristic patina which forms over time. This patina is the result of the reaction of bronze with external agents and it has no effect on the intrinsic properties of the material, but it is a visual sign of the ageing process, making every example unique and different from the rest.
Also made of bronze is the rotating bezel with a graduated scale for calculating the time of immersion, connected to the case by a special system designed and patented by Officine Panerai. The Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo (PAM00671) is water-resistant to 30 bar (300 meters) and it is completed by a brown leather strap with sewing of a nautical character and a titanium buckle. It is a Special Edition limited to 1,000 units
