Bronze, what amazing choice for an vintage watch design. The new Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo 47 mm watches bring the ages of sea adventures, durability of firmness and the famous brand’s accuracy.
The Panerai’s collection for 2011 is full of surprises, especially in terms of materials (new models are made either of bronze, Compozite, ceramic or platinum…). With them, brand’s classic designs and the unmatchable elegance got a new stunning look. Also, their excellent performances provide the highest durability, extremely important for diving Panerai watches.
The new Panerai Luminor Submersible watches are crafted of CuSn8 bronze, tough material, which is resistant to corrosion. It’s important to know that the bronze reacts to the external agents (air, humidity, heat and wear) and forms the patina. This means that, after the years of wearing, your watch will get the unique sign of aging.
If you appreciate the authentic vintage watch design, you’ll definitely be amazed with its new appearance. After all, the patina doesn’t affect the quality of material and you can always polish the watch case in order to bring back the previous shine of your Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo.
So, let’s recapitulate the story about material – case is made of brushed bronze and it is pretty large, with diameter of 47mm. It has famous shape from 1950’s and incorporates anti-clockwise unidirectional rotating bezel, also crafted in bronze. Bezel features graduated scale for calculating the immersion time and ratchet click at minute intervals. Finally, bronze is used for the special bridge, which protects the winding crown and contributes to the superb water-resistance up to 300 meters.
