The whole case is made of titanium, a material with corrosion and external shocks resistance, as well as being light, therefore ideal for reducing the weight of a case 47mm in diameter. All the markings and hands on the black dial are white, apart from the Panerai blue small seconds hand at 9 o’clock.
The minute hand and the stud at 12 o’clock on the bezel glow with a bright blue colour instead of the traditional fluorescent green of all the other markers, so as to provide an even clearer reference point and to avoid any possibility of confusion in calculating times of immersion.
Water-resistance is ensured by about 300 metres, the use of Super-LumiNova applied to the markers, hands and graduated scale means there is maximum legibility under normal lighting conditions as well as in the dark.
The large sapphire glass porthole in the back of the new Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio enables the automatic P.9010 calibre to be admired. This has a power reserve of three days and the spring barrels are constantly wound by a bi-directional oscillating weight. The watch is supplied with a strong, functional black rubber strap with a decidedly sporty look, closed by a titanium buckle.
