Panerai makes one of the most sought after sports timepieces. The Italian designed Panerai Luminor Submersible Automatic Acciaio – Reference PAM01024 has a 44mm diameter and is made from 316L polished stainless steel – making it highly resistant to corrosion and extreme environmental conditions.
The PAM01024 is powered by a Panerai caliber OP XXX, which has 25 jewels and provides a power reserve of 50 hours. This caliber is the successor to the OP III, which was adopted from the timeless Valjoux 7750 calibre. The OP XXX is also used on the PAM00731 which is the blue dial version of this timepiece.
The PAM01024 is a diver’s timepiece which provides water resistance to 660 feet. The counter clockwise rotating bezel with graduated scale helps measure the diving immersions with a satisfying ratchet click at each minute interval. The date window at 3 o’clock and small seconds at 10 o’clock provide balance to the dial. The creamy luminescent coating on the Arabic numerals at 12 and 6 and the hour markers, hour/minute hand tips and small seconds windows, provide exceptional visibility in dark settings.
The Panerai is well known for its large crown and locking mechanism to protect the crown from accidental water seepage due to an improperly screw down seal. There are unique touches on the bezel not often found on other timepieces. The 15, 30 and 45 minute markings appear around the outer bezel to further provide accuracy while diving.
The Rubber B Vulcanized rubber straps are precisely calibrated for 44mm Luminor Submersible cases. This strap utilizes “Blocked Integration” engineering for a flawless, motionless flush mount to the Panerai case. A 316L Stainless Steel Tang Buckle is included with each strap. However, this strap also perfectly fits the original Panerai tang buckle.
All Rubber B bands are made in Switzerland of pure vulcanized rubber. No coating, blends or bonding are used in the manufacturing process, ensuring an unmatched wearability and strength which will retain its stylish beauty for many years.
Rubber B has developed 10 colorful bands for the Panerai Luminor Submersible Automatic Acciaio 44mm reference PAM01024. It has 6 solid color bands and 4 dual color “vulchromatic” bands which are jet black with a colorful stripe down the middle. Panerai owners of Rubber B bands have the ability to extend their palette with a look that suits their style and personality. With a quick change to a new color Rubber B band, the Bracelet transforms the Panerai’s personality from an austere and military classic look to a fun and exciting appearance.
