SIHH 2015: Officine Panerai - Luminor Submersible 1950 Flyback PAM614 and PAM615

| No comment
Among the SIHH 2015 novelties, Officine Panerai presented two new Submersible models who share the same Luminor 1950 case in brushed titanium and an automatic chronograph movement with flyback function.



The distinctive element of the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanio is the unidirectional rotating bezel for calculating the time of immersion, available in titanium (PAM00614) or in titanium with a matt black ceramic disk applied to it (PAM00615).



Professional underwater models that are water-resistant to a pressure of 30 bar (a depth of about 300 metres), the new models have a large 47 mm case matched to a black rubber strap, soft and durable, personalised with the OP logo in Panerai blue.

Also known as the "retour en vol", the flyback function enables the chronograph hand that is already moving to be zeroed and instantly restarted by a single pressure, without it being necessary first to stop the hand and then to return it to zero. In the Luminor Submersible 1950 the push button which controls the stopping and starting of the chronograph is at ten o’clock, while the push button at eight o’clock operates the flyback function and zeros the chronograph hand after it has been stopped.

The chronograph minutes and seconds hands are both positioned centrally on the central dial and distinguished from each other by being different colours: the seconds hand is blue while the minute hand is rhodium plated. The colours chosen for the hands enhance the minimalist design of the black dial, with its dot-shaped hour markers and simple figures, and the small continuous seconds counter at nine o’clock.

The two models have different elements at three o’clock: the model with the titanium bezel has the date window in this position while the model with ceramic bezel has the chronograph hour counter there.



The movement of choice is the P.9100 calibre, the first automatic chronograph calibre developed and made in the Panerai manufacture in Neuchâtel. Its quality is well described by some of its features: the vertical clutch, the column wheel, the two spring barrels connected in series which guarantee a power reserve of three days, the oscillating weight which winds the spring barrels as it moves in both directions, and the variable inertia balance which oscillates at 28,800 vibrations per hour.

To ensure the greatest accuracy when adjusting the watch, the mechanism has the device for stopping the balance wheel and the system which enables the hour hand to be moved backwards or forwards in jumps of precisely one hour, without interrupting the movement of the minute hand.


Both versions of the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanio 47mm are supplied with a spare strap, a screwdriver and the special tool for changing the strap. Retail prices are Euro 14,200 for the PAM00614 and Euro 15.700 for the PAM00615. panerai.com
