Looking for a modern time piece that is as high-tech as it is historical? Look no further than the Panerai Luminor Submersible PAM00025. From the legendary Italian watchmaker Panerai, The Luminor Submersible has all of the perks of modern time keeping with a distinctly historic and nautical look.
True to their roots as the exclusive supplier of wristwatches for the divers of the Royal Italian Navy in 1936, this watch is water resistant up to ~300 metres, making it suitable for diving and is constructed with the finest quality brushed titanium. Titanium is a perfect material for diving watches as it is incredibly resistant to the elements (so don’t worry about bringing it to extreme places), hypoallergenic (perfect for all day wear) and is 40% lighter than steel while retaining the same amount of strength, so not only is it durable, but it won’t get in your way.
The same great design and function is also available in the more nautically themed bronze, with the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Power Reserve Automatic Bronzo – 47mm.
