Introduction: Panerai, known as the official supplier of precision equipment for the Italian Navy in the 1930s, this time launching the Luminor 1950 Submersible diving depth measurement watch marks the company’s history Continuation and re-establishment of Panerai’s great tradition in the field of professional precision measuring instruments.
South African Mike Horn is recognized as one of the world’s greatest modern adventurers and explorers. I once wore Vietnam and the United States without using any power vehicles The trek around the entire Arctic Circle lasted two years and three months; it also refreshed human history in 2006, and for the first time reached the North Pole during the Arctic winter polar night without using sled dogs or powered vehicles; and In 2007, he climbed two Nepalese peaks over 8,000 meters without the aid of additional oxygen.
Panerai diving watch
Mike Horn has begun a new expedition ‘Pangaea’ for four years since last year. His journey will be on all continents around the world, including Antarctica, in order to spread awareness of the current state of the earth and awaken the public to the Awareness of the important issue of protecting the environment. Panerai, which has sponsored Mike Horn since 2001, continued to sponsor this event, and he embarked on the journey wearing a specially developed watch to measure its durability and functionality under extreme conditions, and will also be on the adventure carry out testing.
Panerai, known as the official supplier of precision equipment for the Italian Navy in the 1930s, this time launching the Luminor 1950 Submersible diving depth measurement watch marks the continuation of the company’s history and re-establishes Panerai’s Great tradition in the field of professional precision measuring instruments. This new watch is a self-winding watch suitable for underwater use. It has an astronomical certificate issued by the Swiss Official Observatory (C.O.S.C.). The watch is equipped with a depth gauge, whose measurement accuracy has been individually tested and certified by the official accreditation body METAS (National Survey Office in Bern, Switzerland).
This depth measurement watch comes in a unique case from the Luminor collection
深度 This depth measuring watch uses the unique case of the Luminor series. It is made of a single piece of material, with a unique winding crown bridge and lever device, and is waterproof to a depth of 120 meters. Its diameter is 47mm, which is the same as that of the classic model. It is made of titanium, which is highly resistant and lightweight. It is made of frosted steel.
Unlike the Italian Navy classic wrist-worn depth gauge (available depth of 30 meters), the innovative Luminor 1950 Submersible diving depth measurement watch can measure a depth of 120 meters, and can also record the maximum depth during the dive. This is because of a precision stand-alone electronic measuring instrument installed in the watch case. Panerai did not choose a full mechanical depth gauge because the existing technology could not meet the safety and accuracy standards set by Panerai for professional instruments.
A watch for adventure
Panerai therefore chose ‘the third way’, using a mechanical movement to measure time and electronic components to measure depth. Depth measurement can be started by pressing the button at 10 o’clock, and the specific depth is displayed by the yellow arrow pointer swiping across the center of the dial. The depth gauge is powered by a lithium battery, which ensures that the electronic measurement module can provide up to 500 hours of energy. For better security, the Luminor 1950 Submersible watch has an integrated alarm device that alerts you when the battery is almost depleted. At this point, the activated indicator will slowly move from the ‘off’ position to the zero, and then slowly move back to the ‘off’ position, and all the functions of the depth gauge will be turned off. In order to ensure maritime safety, the watch must be sent to a Panerai service center for inspection at least every two years. If the depth gauge is used frequently, it needs to be checked more frequently.
This year, the Luminor 1950 Submersible watch will be produced as planned (including two straps, one of which is a rubber strap with a traditional large buckle, matte steel, and is specially engraved with ‘Officine Panerai’ Manufacture & rdquo; logo; another spare strap is suitable for wearing after wearing a diving suit, and comes with a screwdriver for changing the strap .
