PANERAI Submersible 42MM

This has been a fruitful SIHH for Panerai’s Submersible family, which has just been updated with no less than 12 new models for 2019 – interestingly, 3 of those offered come as new 42MM variants while the rest are in more typical 47MM diameters.

The 3 pint-sized Submersibles join 2 existing 42mm Submersibles PAM00382 & 384. 42mm is still a relatively new diameter for Panerai who are renowned for their generously sized 47mm cases.

Owing to the smaller case size, a new smaller movement was required so all 3 watches are powered by an OP XXXIV caliber automatic mechanical movement.

PAM00683 gets a black: dial, unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel and rubber strap, while PAM00959 combines a blue; ceramic bezel and rubber strap with a shark grey dial.

The third and final model in this size is the new Submersible Carbotech 42MM which was released alongside a 47MM version.

I don't have any pricing info. on any of these at this early stage, but I would imagine these are going to be very popular especially PAM00959, the baby brother of Submersible Chrono Guillaume Nery if you will.
