In 2019, Panerai Replica separated the Submersible model from the Luminor lineup to become its own standalone collection. But do you know what the main differences are between the Panerai Luminor and the Submersible?
Panerai Luminor: The Flagship Watch
Among Panerai’s watch models, it is the Luminor Fake Swiss Watch that is recognized as the brand’s flagship model. The collection takes its name from a tritium-based luminous material Panerai patented in the 1940s.
The simplest versions are the Luminor Base editions, which are time-only models with just an hour hand and a minute hand located at the center pointing to mix of stick markers and Arabic numerals.
Within the Panerai Luminor Replica collection, there exists a choice of automatic or manual-wind models and water-resistance ratings generally range from 100 meters to 300 meters.
Panerai Submersible: The Modern Dive Watch
Similar to the Luminor, the Fake Submersible Watch also has the crown lock mechanism protruding from its case. However, unlike the Luminor, the Submersible includes unidirectional rotating bezels marked to 60 minutes to measure elapsed time while underwater.
Submersible dials are home to broad sword-shaped hands with luminous tips for even better underwater legibility, along with a running seconds indicator and a date window. In addition to the time/date Submersible models, there are also a few Submersible Chronographs editions.
There are presently three case sizes to choose from within the Panerai Replica Watches range: 42mm, 44mm, and 47mm. Furthermore, case material options are plentiful, including steel, titanium, red gold, bronze, Carbotech, and BMG-TECH – a bulk metallic glass that’s harder and lighter than steel. As expected from a Panerai dive watch collection, Submersible watches are typically fitted with rubber straps.
