    Panerai Submersible

Because the big watch brands prepare for January’s annual Salon Worldwide en Haute Horlogerie - the annual event where an array of high-finish brands unveil the year’s new timepieces - Panerai has dropped cover on a set of special-edition timepieces that pay homage towards the brand’s military heritage, the Panerai Radiomir watch with whether black or perhaps a faded-brown dial. From the pair, there’s something quite charming about Panerai’s execution from the brown model Panerai Radiomir and how it can replicate the type of dial fading that may occur with vintage watches during the period of decades. The popularity of reissuing past vintage models is in no way new, but utilizing a browned luminous material to provide a bit that aged look isn't particularly common. As well as in the situation of the new Panerai, it really works very well.

Both watches are fitted having a 12-sided bezel engraved using the words “Officine Panerai-Brevettato,” a mention of patented luminous material Panerai developed in early twentieth century. The pieces really are a nod to a number of watches the company given to the government bodies from the Panerai Radiomir 1940 because they started testing new watches along with other underwater instruments.

Both watches boast hefty 47 mm stainless-steel cases, thick untreated leather straps, and many particularly, are operated by Panerai’s in-house P.3000 hands-wound mechanical movement, with a power reserve of 72 hrs. Prices has not yet been announced for either model, although we predict further details to become announced in The month of january.
