Retro Can Also Be Energetic. Tasting Panerai Luminor 1950 Series Bronze Diving Watch

At the Geneva Watch Fair earlier this year, the Panerai diving watch can be said to shine. We have seen no less than 6 new Submersible models, and many different ones have been used. The material of the case, from stainless steel to titanium to rose gold, has its own characteristics. One of them is a bronze diving watch 671 with a jumping color design. I believe everyone remembers that this is the third bronze watch of Panerai. In 2012, Panerai first introduced the bronze that was considered as the ‘god’ at the time. The watch 382, ​​which is also one of the most memorable special models of all watch fans who like Panerai, followed by the launch of the second bronze 507 in 2013. After four years, Panerai once again made the bronze watch Gorgeously presented in front of the world. (Watch model: PAM00671)

Panerai’s new vintage bronze diving watch

Bronze case

   The watch case has a diameter of 47 mm and is entirely made of bronze. This material is an alloy of copper and pure tin, which is extremely resistant to the corrosion caused by seawater and environmental conditions.

Case outline

   The structure of the watch looks extremely hard, but the materials retain the soft primary colors, but it will not always maintain such primary colors. Over time, the surface will be covered with a layer of green embroidery. This is because the bronze and External factors have reacted; however, this does not change the properties of this material. The traces of time have given each watch a unique charm. The wearer always sees the watch differently at different time periods, which is probably the most attractive part of the bronze watch.

Rotating bezel and side crown

   The classic crown bridge and the rotating bezel with index scale are also made of bronze. The bezel is used to calculate the dive time. The patented system developed by Panerai is connected to the case to ensure that every adjustment can be made. Accurate.

Aqua Blue Dial

   The marine blue dial layout is very simple. Panerai’s classic hollow hands, rods and dots have not changed. The date display window is set at 3 o’clock, and the small second dial is at 9 o’clock. The combination of the blue dial and the bronze case really looks comfortable. The blue dial just perfectly neutralizes the color of the bronze case, presenting a matte texture, which sets off a quaint nautical style.

Luminescent coated hour markers and hands

   A great detail on this bronze diving watch is the use of retro-flavored luminous hour markers, which are very dated. Although it looks slightly different from the bronze case in its current initial state, but with the oxidation of the case later The mutual contrast between them will become more and more visually ornamental. In addition, the dials, hands and calendar window numbers all use the same color, so that the simple dial is not too fancy.

Nautical leather strap

   The watch is paired with a nautical-style stitched leather strap and pin buckle, which is also matte bronze.

Back-through movement display

   The case back that comes into direct contact with the wrist is made of titanium, and the case back is made of sapphire crystal. The watch is equipped with a P.9010 self-winding movement. This completely self-made movement is only 6mm thick, which is 1.9mm thinner than the P.9000 movement on the previous PAM382 watch. Practical features that provide the watch with a three-day power reserve. In addition, the watch’s fast time adjustment device makes the hour hand jump back and forth in one-hour units without affecting the operation of the watch.

Panerai PAM617 watch overall display

Summary: Panerai’s PAM617 watch interprets the indissoluble bond between the brand and the ocean in a new way. When the bronze case meets the blue dial, the retro feeling overflows. As before, this watch is still limited to 1,000 pieces. With the PAM382’s still hot precedent, this bronze diving watch is inevitable. (Photo / text watch home Sun Fangfang)
