Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio “PCYC 10 Years of Passion”


Panerai PAM571 - FrontTo commemorate the 10-year anniversary of producing special-edition watches for its Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge (PCYC), Panerai has released a limited-edition anniversary timepiece, the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio “PCYC 10 Years of Passion 2005-2014,” limited to only 50 pieces worldwide.

This new limited edition of the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio, which bears a special engraved “10 Years of Passion” logo on its caseback, has the classical 47-mm Luminor Submersible case made of brushed titanium, which has hypoallergenic properties as well as extreme corrosion resistance, toughness and lightness. The Submersible is Panerai’s most professional-grade diving watch: the screw-down caseback and the brand’s trademarked crown-guard lever help to give the case its water-resistance of 300 meters, and the unidirectional rotating bezel enables divers to time their dives. The ratcheting bezel, which has a graduated scale for calculating the time of immersion, clicks into place in one-minute intervals. The watch’s black dial has luminous Arabic numerals and applied indices, a small seconds subdial at 9 o’clock, and a date window at 3 o’clock. The partly skeletonized hour and minute hands are also coated with luminescent material. The sapphire crystal, formed of corundum, is 4 mm thick and has a nonreflective coating.

  1. I love this watch but I would like to see one with a center sweep second hand

    I like the large, clean and crisp appearance of the Panerai (with the exception of the lug above the winding crown, but I could get used to that). It’s uncluttered and clear to read with apparently good night time visibility.

    Is the accuracy of mechanical watches that generate power as accurate as watches with batteries?
