Last week at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie SIHH 2015 in Geneva, Panerai unveiled seven new timepieces that we have been showing here on our website. This time is the turn to present you our live pictures of the other two new Officine Panerai Luminor Submersible watches after we presented you the Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech here last week. The Officine Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanium PAM 614 and PAM 615 are two of our favorite releases from Panerai this year.
The new Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanium fitted with a very robust titanium Luminor 1950 case measuring 47mm in diameter incorporates features which have in common the military context of their origins and it appears as a contemporary watch with a strongly sporting character, with great personality and the purest Panerai identity. A professional underwater model that is water-resistant to a pressure of 300 meters, the new Luminor Submersible 1950 includes the iconic design of the Luminor 1950 case with a unidirectional rotating bezel made entirely of brushed titanium in the case of the PAM 614 and of black matte ceramic —graphite gray looking in person— in the case of the PAM 615. Aside of the different bezel, the lack of date aperture and the 12-hour chronograph on the PAM 615, both new Submersible models are exactly identical from top to bottom including their beating hearts. One thing that we absolutely love about these two new models, are the blue hands for the chronograph, which provide amazing contrast against the black matte dials.
Both new Officine Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanium PAM 614 and PAM 615 watches are powered by the in-house Panerai automatic movement P.9100. This calibre is very well protected by the solid titanium case back engraved with the S.L.C. motif. The calibre P.9100 executed entirely by Panerai features 37 jewels, Glucydur balance, 302 parts and beats at a frequency of 28,800 vph to provide a power reserve of 3 days with two barrels.
Both new watches PAM 614 and PAM 615 feature the iconic Panerai crown guard as well as screw-down chrono pushers on the left case band. The chronograph pushers are easy to manipulate and very sporty looking.
Both watches are fitted with the new grooved black rubber straps with OP logo in blue and with trapezoidal brushed titanium buckle.
On the wrist, both watches wear comfortably, quite light —135.5 grams— and true to their size. As expected the watches sit high on the wrist making it almost impossible to hide them under the cuff of a shirt. But honestly, what paneristi would want to do that. These are two exceptional looking watches with a strong sporty character and fueled by the Panerai DNA in every sense of the word.
Sticker Price $17,500 USD for PAM 614 and $19,500 USD for PAM 615. For more info on Panerai click here.
