The Panerai Luminor Submersible watch is an iconic sports watch. What follows is a review of the models that are current available in the Luminor Submersible collection from Panerai.
There are three models in the collection; the PAM 00243, the PAM 00024, and the PAM 00025.
All three of these Panerai watches have a bezel that can be turned counter clockwise with a graduated scale represented by small recessed cylinders and engraved minute track. They also feature the famous Panerai crown locking system – a patented system consisting of a bridge that is fastened in the middle by two screws. They share the same movement, which is automatic mechanical, using the Panerai OP III calibre, 13¼ lignes, 21 jewels. You also get the Panerai personalized oscillating weight and Glucydur balance with 28,800 alternations per hour.
The watches are 44 mm in diameter and 16 mm in depth and come in a carre galbe shape. This makes them quite a chunky and large watch to wear. The glass is sapphire, formed of corundum, 3.5 mm thick with a magnifying lens over the date at 3 o’clock. The glass also has anti-reflective coating. The watches come with luminescent, skeletal hour and minute hands. There is a subsidiary dial at the 3 o’clock position to hold the seconds hand. And all are water resistant to 300 meters, though you can get pieces that are water resistant to 1000 meters.
Both the PAM 00243 and the PAM 00024 come in brushed stainless steel and black rubber straps. Apart from the strap there is very little to differentiate them.
The PAM 00025 has a case made from three pieces of titanium. It also has a black Clous de Paris dial with its sub-dial decorated with circular beads. Being made from titanium this model is lighter than the other two.
The PAM 00025 is undoubtedly the most popular of the three the Luminor Submersible watches by Panerai. These beautiful watches are in vogue right now. It’s somewhat simple, chunky, heavy design seems to appeal to certain men. Used Panerai watches are demanding prices that are higher than a new watch, such is their popularity. There’s also a feeling that a Panerai watch only looks its best after it’s been knocked around a bit.
