Panerai Luminor Submersible Flyback
Before we look at the best straps for the Panerai Luminor Submersible Flyback, we will look at the timepiece itself. The Panerai Luminor Submersible Flyback reference PAM00615 is a professional diver’s timepiece. The original 1956 design inspires the design of the PAM00615.
The 1956 Egyptian Navy timepiece was known as “L’Egiziano,” and it had an exceptionally large case diameter of 60 millimeters, which is a far greater size than the current 47 mm model. The Panerai Luminor Submersible has etched itself in history as one of the finest professional dive watches ever made.
Panerai Luminor Submersible Flyback Case
Although the 1956 timepiece had a huge case of 60 millimeters, Panerai went to work over the years to create a Panerai Luminor Submersible case which is a much smaller 47 millimeters in size. As a result, the Panerai Luminor PAM00615 is both light and strong. The Panerai Lumonor sports titanium metal case, which results in remarkable corrosion resistance and physical and mechanical strength.
However, at 47 mm, the Panerai case still feels like a substantial timepiece. It is far bigger than the Rolex Submariner, for example which is a mere 40 mm large. This large size actually is valued by divers who need a timepiece that will fit the added width of their wrist when on top of a wet suit.
PAM00615 P.9100 Calibre Movement
The movement is an automatic P.9100 calibre. Rather than outsource, Panerai produces their own movements themselves. Therefore, they can select the best products to build with. Panerai utilizes a Glucydur balance and an Incabloc anti-shock device. This results in a highly stable timepiece.
The Panerai beats at 28,800 alterations per hour. As a result, the Panerai has tremendous power. It has 302 components and 37 jewels. Certainly Panerai has spared no expense. The PAM00615 has a power reserve of 3 days. It also supports a water resistance of 300 meters. For this reason the PAM00615 is a spectacular dive watch.
Panerai PAM00615 Design Features
The 615 has a black dial with highly luminous Arabic numerals and dots for the hour markers. The large hands provide great visibility.
Panerai has taken extra care in its use of luminescence on this timepiece. The powerful visibility is aided by a bright green lume on the hour markers and on the tip of the hour hand and small seconds window. But the lume on the tip of the minute hand is actually a bright blue. This aids in the legibility of the timepiece in darkness and low light visibility situations.
The PAM00615 has a small seconds dial at 9 o’clock and an hours counter at 3 o’clock. The bezel rotates counter clockwise.
The big blue hand provides the chronograph flyback function. The two pushers at 10 o’clock and 8 o’clock control the chronograph. Just push the 8 o’clock pusher once. The chronograph hands return instantly to zero.
The Panerai Luminor Timepiece comes with a Caoutchouc black strap. New Panerai timepieces allow you to select the perfect size strap from XS to Standard to XL. New owners can also choose their favorite type of buckle from brushed steel to pink gold. The Radiomir is a deployment buckle type as well that may be found on some Luminor models. The wide selection of buckle options can be seen here.
