In Depth

THE ABSOLUTE DARKNESS WHICH RULES IN THE DEPTHS OF THE SEA IS REFLECTED IN THE APPEARANCE OF THE LUMINOR SUBMERSIBLE 1950 3 DAYS Automatic Ceramica, the new Officine Panerai Special Edition which, with its matt ceramic case, its P.9000 manufacture movement and the details inspired by the historic heritage of the brand, represents a perfect synthesis of history, technology and watchmaking design. The Luminor 1950 case with the bridge protecting the winding crown, a characteristic Panerai feature, is made of brushed black ceramic, a material synthesised from zirconium oxide powder which ensures lightness and toughness as well as resistance to scratches, corrosive agents and high temperatures. The classic shape of the case 47 mm in diameter is created by a complex series of working and finishing operations which also give it a particularly uniform, smooth, matt appearance. The unidirectional rotating bezel enabling the length of the dive to be determined is made of the same matt ceramic as the case. The only colour which contrasts with the profound black of the case and of the dial is the ecru Super-LumiNova® on the applied hour markers, the graduated scale and the partially skeletonised hands. The date window is at three o’clock while the classic Panerai small seconds dial is positioned at nine o’clock. The case is sealed by a titanium back coated in black, with an SLC torpedo engraved in the middle, and it contains the automatic P.9000 calibre, entirely developed and executed in the Panerai manufacture in Neuchatel. The Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Ceramica is water-resistant to 30 BAR (300 metres) and it is supplied with a black leather strap, fastened by a large trapezoid-shaped buckle covered in black PVD.

P.9000 calibre

The P.9000 calibre, created entirely by Officine Panerai and used in a series of Luminor 1950 and Radiomir models, is fitted with various functions: it is an automatic calibre with a 3-day power reserve and a unique technical design which makes these movements immediately recognizable. The calibre has a diameter of 13¾ lignes and numerous features: two barrels which guarantee 72 hours of power reserve; a single piece rotor which winds by moving in both directions thanks to an automatic ratchet device; a balance wheel with adjusting screws, oscillating at a frequency of 4 Hz. To house this movement, a specially made version of the Luminor 1950 case has been designed, keeping the proportions of the original but featuring a slightly less convex sapphire crystal which only barely protrudes from the bezel.
