For 2014, Panerai quietly released a trio of watches with a sort of aged “vintage look” and lefty-style crown orientation. The Panerai Luminor Submersible Left-Handed Titanio PAM569 (PAM00569) watch was among them, and it is a hell of a watch for Panerai lovers. In essence, the PAM569 is a mash-up of other Panerai design elements we’ve seen in the past, but this particular arrangement is pretty appealing. So let’s take a look at this new Luminor Submersible model.
The Panerai Luminor Submersible Left-Handed Titanio is one of those unique Panerai watches that doesn’t immediately look like a Panerai. Even though all Panerai watches essentially started as dive watches, the Luminor Submersible is the the most “diver” of them all, at least in a contemporary sense. Why? Well one need only look at the dial design, 300 meters of water resistance, and of course the rotating diver’s bezel. Only Luminor Submersible Panerai watches have those.
That said, if you adore the cool aesthetic of this 1389, there is always the traditionally-sized 42mm PAM682, but you lose out on the anti-magnetic capabilities and ceramic bezel, alongside the capability for your dial to double as a serving plate in a pinch. Kidding aside, it is clear that the rest of the sector has been responding to a return to smaller dimensions — 43mm seems to be the newest 42 down in the 45 and 47mm watches that once dominated Panerai’s modern collection. That is why another 47mm watch in 2017 really feels somewhat dated right out of the gate — despite its trendy, and timeless aesthetic. Trends-be-damned though, many die-hard Paneristi still wouldn’t have it any other way — that is probably why the newest continues to fly the flag as among the last holdouts of the decade’s big watch trend.If that you still count yourself one of the loyal, you may add the PAM01389 for your own collection for the purchase price of $11,000. Just don’t forget, trendy men don’t look back in the explosion.It might be the uncommon watch nerd (that happens to also be a materials science nerd) who will be able to fully appreciate why Panerai Luminor Submersible For Sale Replica determined it was a fantastic idea to note “BMG-TECH” on the dial of a Luminor Submersible as a way of telling you about the opinion case materials. Panerai themselves refer to the worthiness of this PAM 692 (debuted on aBlogtoWatch here) as being an “imperceptible invention.” In a way that’s a good thing when it concerns the allure of bulk metallic glass. What is concealed in the Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 BMG-TECH 3-Days Automatic PAM 692 is a hint at what future substances will be used in watches.The prevalence of ceramic, for instance, demonstrates a real need for watchmakers to move beyond conventional metals. The decision to work with non-metallic case materials isn’t just about being cool and fashionable, but is frequently linked to real value for the consumer.
So as a dive watch fan, I am drawn to watches like the PAM569 given its underwater looks and clean, legible dial. To better understand the PAM569, it is important to look at watches such as the Jual Luminor Panerai Submersible Replica Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Titanio PAM305 and the original Luminor Submersible PAM025. The PAM569 borrows the dial texture from the latter, and the overall design of the former. What makes the PAM569 different than the PAM305 is the left-handed orientation of the crown as well as the coloring of the luminant (and dial texture).
Of course, along with a crown position juxtaposition on the case, the movement inside of the watch must be flipped as well. That means rather than have the subsidiary seconds dial on the left and the date on the right, the Panerai Luminor Submersible Left-Handed Titanio has the subsidiary seconds dial on the right and the date window on the left.
It seems like a minor thing, but it really switches up the dial personality a lot. The aged color of the lume is also attractive and helps give the Panerai Luminor Submersible Carbotech Replica Luminor Submersible Left-Handed Titanio PAM569 a more mellow personality compared to the more traditional black dial with green lume of most other Panerai watches.
One of the best things about having a left-handed orientation of the crown on a Panerai watch is that it often makes wearing them much more comfortable. At 47mm wide the Panerai Luminor Submersible Left-Handed Titanio is a large watch, only made more so by Panerai’s iconic crown guard. When placed on the right side of the case (as normal), this element can easily jut into your wrist. Assuming you are wearing the Panerai Luminor Submersible Left-Handed Titanio on your left hand, the crown is not placed on the same side of the case as your wrist, so wearing it becomes a lot more comfortable.
Panerai is among the few companies that makes a timepiece which can be too large for your wrist but nevertheless still cool-looking. The PAM569 is perhaps too large for my wrist – as evidenced by the lugs that stick out further than where my wrist ends – but it still feels good and appears fashionable. Of course, this is aided by the fact that Panerai produced the PAM569 in titanium (same as the PAM305). The slightly darker color of the light-weight metal fits nicely with the vintage theme and aged-style leather strap.
