2012/10/12 - Officine Panerai presents the Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanio - 47mm


The new Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanio encapsulates all the elements of the tradition that has always characterized Panerai and the continuous research by the Florentine brand into the finest technical solutions. The Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanio features a case that ensures an extremely high resistance to magnetic fields: 40,000 A/m (ampere per meter), a limit more than eight times greater than the value specified by the international standards of the Normes de l’Industrie Horlogère Suisse (NIHS 90-10). Such a high limit is achieved by the use of a special internal case made of soft iron of the highest purity, which encloses and isolates the movement, forming a Faraday cage that diverts the flow of magnetic fields. The soft iron case is immediately beneath the dial, which is made of the same material.

The practicality of the structure of this case can also be seen in everyday life and not only in extreme situations, since even the use of computers and mobile phones can easily expose the watch to fairly significant magnetic fields that are likely to affect the proper functioning of the watch.

The new Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanio responds to the need to neutralize these magnetic fields and ensures that no functions of the watch are compromised.

This represents an absolute innovation concerning the design of the watch: applied to the rotating titanium bezel, inspired by that of the models made by Panerai for the Egyptian Navy in the 1950s, is a disc of opaque black ceramic, on which the linear and dot-shaped titanium markers are fixed. The bezel rotates only in a anticlockwise direction, to prevent accidental movement interfering with the measurement of the time of the dive.

Behind the quintessential black dial, with its distinctive applied linear hour markers coated with Super-LumiNova®, lies the P.9000 automatic movement, executed entirely by the Officine Panerai manufacture in Neuchâtel, providing a power reserve of three days. The movement also incorporates a convenient system for setting the hour hand, which can be moved forward and backward in jumps of exactly one hour, at the same time adjusting the date display accordingly.
