Panerai has created a unique version of its Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic watch. As the name suggests, the iconic, Fake 47mm Luminor Submersible case has been made in bronze and paired with a brown dial, for a very distinctive, vintage look.
Swiss Panerai Replica association with the Royal Italian Navy is already well-documented, so I won’t bother going into detail about it again here but the connection with the sea and diving is self-evident. Not surprisingly, the watch is rated water resistant to 300m.
The watch is of course based on the Special Top SwissLuminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Bronzo – 47mm. Inside is the in-house P.9010 calibre, an automatic mechanical movement beating at 28,800 v/ph and offering a max power-reserve of 3 days thanks to a double barrel system. Completing the look is a brown leather strap, which will age nicely with the bronze case and a titanium buckle.
Panerai Submersible Bronzo, under the reference PAM00968. Building on the legacy of its forebearers, it incorporates the new Submersible design codes unveiled atPanerai Replica UK and introduces for the first time a ceramic bezel matched with bronze.
A robust and durable material, bronze was commonly used in deep-sea diving equipment and for boat fittings – prior to stainless steel – because of its resistance to saltwater corrosion. Hence its choice by Cheap Panerai Replica, a brand that regularly trumpets its strong association with the sea.
This time the dial is brown and features luminous hour markers and dots in a matching bronze hue. The date appears in a small window at 3 o’clock, while the small seconds at 9 o’clock provides a ready indication that the watch is running correctly. As with all Panerai Replica dive watches, the focus is on simplicity and legibility.

Like the Panerai Replica Watches non-limited version, the case – including the specially engraved caseback – is made from lightweight titanium. This special edition, however, receives a black DLC coating all over, giving it a very stealthy appearance. The unidirectional rotating bezel used for tracking elapsed time is also in black DLC-coated titanium and features a matte black ceramic insert with a luminous graduated scale.
On the right-hand side of the case, Panerai’s trademark crown guard ensures the crown can’t be accidentally accessed during a dive. On the Luxury Panerai Replica opposite side are the two screw-in pushers at 8 and 10 o’clock for controlling the flyback chronograph. Engraved on the solid screw caseback is a rendering of Guillaume Néry free-diving, along with his signature and the depth of his final record dive: 126 metres, achieved with a single breath.
According to Panerai, the colour scheme was inspired by the seas of Polynesia, hence the use of this unusual turquoise blue for the chapter ring, chronograph seconds hand and some of the text on the Swiss Panerai Replica Watches dial. What makes it for me though is the stark contrast against the blackness of the case. This just makes the dial really pop in my opinion.
Hours and minutes are displayed centrally, as are the chronograph seconds and minutes. Running seconds are shown on the sub-dial at 9 o’clock Panerai Replica UK and elapsed chronograph hours are counted at 3 o’clock. All the hands have lume, and legibility is further improved in low-light conditions thanks to applied luminous white dots and indexes.
The new PAM00983 comes on a Panerai Replica Watchpersonalized black rubber strap with a trapezoidal titanium buckle. Designed to be worn in the water for long periods of time, it’s comfortable on the wrist. The strap is probably not really suited for office attire, but then again neither is this watch.
