WATER RESISTANCE

All Panerai watches ensure a strong water-resistance in honour of the historic enterprises of the Italian Navy underwater commandos. With the Luminor Submersible, Officine Panerai reinterprets this glorious past proposing a water-resistance of 30 bar (~300 metres) and a function of crucial utility for the divers: a rotating bezel to calculate the duration of the dive.

The bezel rotates in clicks of precisely one minute and only in one direction, to avoid the risk that accidental shocks could misleadingly change the reading of the dive’s duration. The design of the Panerai Submersible watches bezel is inspired by that of the watch created in 1956 by Officine Panerai for the Egyptian Navy known as “L’Egiziano”.

With a sophisticated design to guarantee operations in extreme conditions, all the Panerai Submersible watches exceed the International Standards (ISO 6425) for Divers Professional watches. In fact, the Panerai Submersible watches ensure a water resistance of 30 bar (~300 metres): three times higher than the one imposed by the strict International rules for Divers Professional watches.
