At SIHH 2015 luxury watch exhibition, Officine Panerai has unveiled two new submersible models from with the Luminor 1950 case in brushed titanium, have an automatic chronograph calibre with flyback function and they are available with a rotating bezel of titanium or black ceramic.
The other function of the new Luminor Submersible 1950 originating from requirements which arose in the military field in the 1930s is that of the flyback chronograph. Also known as the “retour en vol”, this function enables the chronograph hand that is already moving to be zeroed and instantly restarted by a single pressure, without it being necessary first to stop the hand and then to return it to zero. In the Luminor Submersible 1950 the push button which controls the stopping and starting of the chronograph is at ten o’clock, while the push button at eight o’clock operates the flyback function and zeros the chronograph hand after it has been stopped.
Both versions of the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanio - 47mm are supplied with a spare strap, a screwdriver and the special tool for changing the strap.
