Panerai just announced the Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic Titanio (PAM 389) for 2013. The Panerai PAM 389 has the classic Luminor Submersible design, with a 47mm titanium case and Panerai’s in-house P.9000 calibre. There are two notable and distinguishing features on the PAM 389: 1) its “amagnetic” properties and 2) its titanium bezel with a ceramic insert.
The ceramic disc set into the bezel is a feature which is completely new in Panerai watches.
But did you know that the Submersible Amagnetic is not the first of its kind from Panerai? Indeed, this is actually the second antimagnetic Panerai, the first being the Arktos Amagetic PAM92 issued in 2004 (LE of 500 pieces) and worn by explorer Mike Horn during one of his Artic expeditions (pictured below).
This watch will makes its official debut in 2013 at the SIHH show in Geneva. An exciting watch, with Panerai in-house caliber, high performance materials, and a great looking and classic design. Lots of great pics, below! Check em’ out.
