Introducing PANERAI’s first ever solid Rose Gold 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 Automatic Oro Rosso 42MM AKA PAM00684; as its name suggests it boasts a solid Rose Gold case measuring 42mm in diameter. This is topped with a tough scratch-resistant matte black ceramic bezel. Water-resistant is limited to a depth of 100 meters (10 bar).
It is supplied with the P.9010 automatic caliber with a power reserve of three days, the time remaining being clearly visible through the Sapphire crystal back following the classic Panerai Submersible design, with the Luminor 1950 case fitted with a unidirectional rotating bezel for calculating the time of immersion and the lever device protecting the winding crown.
The black dial has applied index markers, the date at 3 o’clock and the small seconds counter at 9 o’clock. All the elements on the dial are clear, perfectly legible against the black background. The red gold model more sophisticated but with the same sports functionality, has a distinctive element which increases its strong character:
the rotating bezel has a matte black ceramic disc with stud markers which, in conjunction with the graduated scale, enable the time of immersion to be calculated. The red gold used by Panerai is an alloy which has a slightly higher percentage of copper than usual, giving the color a particular intensity, and a small amount of platinum which helps to prevent oxidation of the precious metal.
