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”.

Panerai Luminor Submersible Flyback Case

The 1956 timepiece had a huge case of 60 millimeters. The Panerai Luminor Submersible case 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.

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.

It also supports a water resistance of 300 meters. For this reason the PAM00615 is a spectacular dive watch.
