In Depth

A CLASSIC PANERAI, FAITHFUL TO TRADITION BUT UPDATED WITH A P.9010 MANUFACTURE MOVEMENT AND A DIAL OF EXEMPLARY LEGIBILITY UNDER ALL LIGHTING CONDITIONS OR IN THE DEPTHS OF THE SEA The Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio is one of the most classic Panerai Submersibles and the new version is a very contemporary interpretation, enhanced by the technology of the P.9010 calibre and with fascinating aesthetic details which, like all Panerai watches, are the result of its particular functions. The whole case is made of titanium, a material with excellent corrosion and external shocks resistance, as well as being light, therefore ideal for reducing the weight of a case 47 mm in diameter. All the markings and hands on the black dial are white, apart from the Panerai blue small seconds hand at 9 o’clock. There is maximum legibility under normal lighting conditions as well as in the dark, thanks to the use of Super-LumiNova® applied to the markers, hands and graduated scale. At night – or underwater – the minute hand and the stud at 12 o’clock on the bezel glow with a bright blue colour instead of the traditional fluorescent green of all the other markers, so as to provide an even clearer reference point and to avoid any possibility of confusion in calculating times of immersion. Water-resistance is ensured to 30 bar (about 300 metres). The large sapphire glass porthole in the back of the new Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio (PAM01305) enables the automatic P.9010 calibre to be admired. This has a power reserve of three days and the spring barrels are constantly wound by a bi-directional oscillating weight. The movement has two other very useful functions: the mechanism for stopping the balance wheel when synchronising the watch, and the device for changing the time quickly: the hour hand can be moved forwards or backwards in jumps of one hour, without interfering with the running of the watch. The watch is supplied with a strong, functional black rubber strap with a decidedly sporty look, closed by a titanium buckle.

Maintenance

Panerai watches are produced to very high standards of quality. It is worth remembering that the mechanical parts run 24 hours a day when used, so the watch must undergo regular maintenance to ensure long life and good operation.

WATER-RESISTANCE 

Have watch checked periodically for water-resistance by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre and renovate it every two years with regular servicing, or whenever the watch has to be opened. The restoration of water-resistance necessarily involves replacing the seals in order to ensure the maximum water resistance and protection. Where the watch is used in underwater sports activities, it is recommended that it should be checked every year before the underwater activities begin.  

THE MOVEMENT 

Have the movement of watch checked periodically by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre in order to preserve its perfect operation. If the watch has a tendency to gain or lose time to a significant degree, the movement may need to be overhauled. The movements are designed to withstand temperature variations between -10°C and +60°C (14°F and 140°F). Outside this range of temperatures, operational variations exceeding those set out in the specifications of the movement may be noticed. In addition, there is a risk that the lubricants contained in the movement may deteriorate, resulting in damage to some of its parts.  

CLEANING THE EXTERIOR

To keep the exterior in perfect condition, we recommend washing Panerai watch with soap and warm water, using a soft brush. After this operation, and also after immersion in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the watch with fresh water. All Panerai watches can be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth. 

THE STRAP

 Panerai straps must be washed in warm water and left to dry. It is important not to dry them on a hot surface or expose them to direct sunlight, because the rapid evaporation of the water could damage their shape and quality. After each immersion in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the strap with fresh water. It is recommended that the strap and the buckle should be replaced by an Authorized Distributor or a Panerai Service Centre, in order to avoid any problems caused by incorrect replacement. Only an Authorized Distributor or Panerai Service Centre can guarantee the use of genuine Panerai straps, properly designed to fit the dimensions of the case and manufactured according to the quality standards of the brand. All alligator leather used by Officine Panerai comes from farms in Louisiana, USA. Officine Panerai’s suppliers have committed to the highest standard of responsibility and have given their assurance that such farms in Louisiana contribute to the stable growth of wild alligators, thus protecting this endangered species. Panerai does not use leather coming from endangered species taken from the wild.

Movement

P.9010 calibre

The automatic P.9010 calibre, entirely developed and created in the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, has central hour and minute hands, the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock and the date at 3 o’clock. The energy necessary to accumulate a power reserve of three days – the basic standard for Panerai in-house movements – is stored in two spring barrels whose springs are wound by an oscillating weight operating in both directions. Consisting of 200 components including 31 jewels, the calibre has a diameter of 13¾ lignes and it is 6 mm thick. The balance, fixed by a bridge with twin supports, oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz). It is associated with the device which stops it as soon as the winding crown is pulled out, enabling the watch to be perfectly synchronised with a reference signal. In the P.9010 calibre the hours can be conveniently adjusted without interfering with the movement of the minute hand, thanks to the device which directly moves only the relative hand in jumps of one hour forward or backwards. This function is very useful when changing time zones or moving between summer time and winter time, and conveniently the adjustment of the hour hand is automatically connected to the date indicator.
