In the hearts of every crew member, bronze will always remind them of the ocean. Classic sailing boats are full of objects made of this material. The passage of time and the effect of the environment will cause the surface of the bronze to form green rust, which also makes each piece of bronze unique. Two years ago, Panerai launched the first watch with a bronze case, which was well received internationally. Now, Panerai is proud to present the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Power Reserve Automatic Bronzo. This new limited edition is made of the same material. It also displays long-lasting charm and a distinctive nautical style. .
The bronze used to make the Luminau 1 950 watch case is CuSn8, which is an alloy of pure copper and pure tin, and has a very high resistance to the corrosion caused by seawater and environmental conditions. In addition to having extremely high structural toughness, this material can always maintain its original warm tone, and at the same time, the surface will be covered with a layer of green rust as time passes, making its appearance more rustic. Bronze reacts with external factors (air, moisture, heat and daily wear) to form green rust on the surface; this does not change the properties of this material. These traces of time make each watch more unique and forgiving. Full of personality. The case size is 47 mm in diameter like the classic Panerai watch, and the classic one is the crown bridge with a locking device to seal the winding crown.
The most striking feature of the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Power Reserve Automatic Bronzo dial is the important new feature unique to this model: the three-day power reserve arc at 4 o’clock Indicator. In addition to this very useful feature, the watch is also equipped with a date display, a zero hand resetting device (useful when synchronizing with the reference time signal) and a system for quickly adjusting the time (the hour hand can jump forward or backward each time One-hour adjustment, without affecting the operation of the watch). The dark green dial features hour markers, a bronze studded bezel surrounds it, and scales are provided to measure dive time. The bezels are connected by a special system designed and patented by Panerai, which precisely ensures that the ratchet moves only one space at a time.
The sapphire crystal case back is fixed to the case by a titanium ring. The reason for choosing titanium is that it is extremely irritating to the skin. Through the bottom cover, you can admire the Panerai P.9002 movement, which was independently developed and manufactured by Panerai’s watch factory in Neuchâtel. The P.9002 movement contains 237 components, and the rotor can be wound in both directions, while the two barrels connected can accumulate a power reserve of up to three days. The variable inertia balance wheel vibrates at a frequency of 28,800 times per hour. Four speed adjusting screws are distributed radially in the balance wheel.
