One Minute Watch with John Carter
Pre-Owned Panerai Luminor Submersible
Inspired by their history of creating capable dive watches, Panerai first launched the Submersible collection in 1998. It drew inspiration from a diving watch design that Panerai originally developed in 1956 for the Egyptian Navy named the GPF-2/56 which would later become popularly known as the “Egyptian.”
Smaller and much more wearable than the original 60mm “Egyptian” reference, this Luminor Submersible 1950 is centered on a 47mm titanium case. The PAM305 is water resistant up to 300 meters and its accordion rubber strap makes for a comfortable wear, even over a wet suit. Its unidirectional rotating bezel is perfect for timing underwater dives making it a true tool watch that is more fitting with a wet suit than a business suit.
With its famed luminescence and 300m water resistance, the Panerai Submersible is a supremely capable dive watch. The first Submersible models were introduced in 1998 and drew inspiration from a 60mm watch that Panerai created for the Egyptian Navy in 1956.
Much smaller and more wearable than its original predecessor, the PAM305 is centered around a 47mm titanium case with the Luminor’s cushion-shaped curves. A signature of Panerai watches, the bright luminescent markers and hands enable incredible visibility in the dark or underwater.
This model is equipped with Panerai’s P.9000 automatic movement with a 72-hour power reserve, which can be observed through the sapphire crystal case back. The PAM305 is water resistant up to 300 meters and its accordion rubber strap makes it extremely comfortable to wear. Fitted with a unidirectional rotating bezel to calculate immersion time, it a true tool watch and a delightful homage to Panerai’s aquatic heritage.
