PANERAI

LUMINOR SUBMERSIBLE 1950

The first Luminor Submersible 1950 with a 42 mm stainless steel case for a sporty look but with a very strong personality.

LUMINOR SUBMERSIBLE 1950 AMAGNETIC

High resistance to magnetic fields, from a minimum of 4.800 A/m up to 40,000 A/m in the Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic: a limit more than eight times higher than that required by International Standards. The Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanio is the latest version of the first anti-magnetic watch produced by Panerai, with a movement, the P.9010 automatic calibre with a power reserve of three days, and modified design resulting from the reduction in the thickness of the case.

Story

Panerai had been the supplier to the Royal Italian Navy for several years when, in order to meet a military requirement, they created Radiomir, a radium-based powder that was later used in the production of luminous dials and sighting instruments. In 1916, Guido Panerai registered Radiomir as the first of many patents to mark Panerai's long history in innovation. In the wake of the Second World War, Panerai developed the prototype of the Radiomir watch, the first underwater model that was water-resistant to a depth of 200m.

With the death of Guido Panerai's son in 1956, the management of the family business, along with its position as the supplier to the Royal Italian Navy under military secrecy, was handed over to engineer Dino Zei who created the trademark "Officine Panerai." Combining Italian design and Swiss horological perfection, each year Officine Panerai reinterprets its 150-year-long passion: the creation of high precision timepieces with a strong identity rooted in distinction, aesthetics and function.
