Hey guys, this is Kevin from Jaztime.com, and today we'll be doing our review on the Panerai Luminor 1950 Submersible. The reference number for this model is 1305. We'll be going over the price, the dial, bezel, case, crown, strap, buckle, and we'll talk about the movement towards the end of the video. All right, so as of January 2018, you can get this watch from an authorized Panerai retailer for $9,200 plus tax, or you can check out Jaztime.com for the best prices online, and prices are subject to change, so go, if you ever website, check out before you purchase this. OK, so let's go ahead and move on to the dial now. The dial for the Luminor Submersible, we have circular hour markers with an index at the 6:00 position and two indexes at the 12:00 position, mainly for the having two at the 12:00 position will help you, obviously, have a landmark to show which is the 12:00, which is the 6:00. The hands are fashioned in the 18 karat white gold, same thing with the hour markers, fashioned in 18 white gold to prevent any tarnishing. The hour markers and the hands themselves are luminous filled with a Super Luminova. They glow in the dark for about up to eight hours or so, however there is one distinct difference between the glow, is that, specifically with this Luminor Submersible, Panerai has what's called the function of the calculation of immersion time, which is basically the usage of the bezel to calculate how long you've gone underwater and such. With that, they've actually made another landmark with the glow in the dark portions of the Luminova, so actually the minute hand will glow blue and this stud at the 12:00 position will also glow blue, so once you position the minute hand to the stud to track elapsed time underwater, you can have that sort of reference point so it's nice and easily viewable at night. Actually, I believe I did light up, or rather, charge the glow in the dark a little bit, so let me just go ahead and cover my hand over this. OK, or rather, let me turn off the lights on these. All right. You can see that the stud at the top is a blue, the minute hand is also blue as well. The rest of the hour markers, the hands, the second hand at the 9:00 position, they're all glowing in that green color, OK. Of course, with all Panerais, the sapphire crystal, nice and reflective, so I do apologize for that reflection of my hand on that sapphire crystal. All right. OK, so besides that, like I mentioned, at the 9:00 position, we have the second subdial in which you can obviously see the movement of the seconds hand instead of having the central seconds hand. Besides that, moving on to the bezel now. The bezel is, as mentioned, is the calculation of immersion time, as Panerai likes to call it, and so have basically a fancy way of saying that it's used for tracking the elapsed time underwater. The bezel itself is a brushed titanium with polished edges. You can see the very edge of the bezel has a nice high polish to it, so it gives that sort of contrasting shine to the brushed titanium bezel. The bezel itself is a anti-clockwise rotating bezel with graduated scale, meaning that it only can turn one way and that's to the left here as shown. You cannot turn it to the right. As this watch, it was made for divers in mind. This is pretty much considered a professional diver's watch. You can track the elapsed time underwater, as shown. I'm moving that stud to the minute hand position, and let's just say for a diver you want to track your 10 minutes of oxygen left in your oxygen tank, you can track that, just simply starting from the stud, you'll see that blue glow in the dark as before. Each smaller dot is five minutes, so it'd be five, 10, the bigger dot having the engraved 15 on there, 15, and 5, 20, 25, and then the engraved 30 there. It goes for all the way for that 60 minute scale. But of course, even if you're not a professional diver, you can always use it for everyday activities, such as tracking how fast you run a mile, or even checking how long a business meeting you're taking or even your commute to work to see how long that's taking as well, OK. All right, so let's go ahead and reset that stud back to 12:00 position. Let's talk about the case now, so let's go ahead and move on to that. The whole case, including the bezel and the crown guard is titanium. Titanium is a nice choice for this watch as this is a very large watch, is a 47 millimeter sized watch, so from my index finger to my thumb here, that's 47 millimeters in diameter. The titanium helps the case have an additional corrosion resistance, and helps with additional external shock resistance that helps along with that Incabloc anti-shock device that's in the movement. Specifically, titanium is good for this size of watch, mainly because it's actually a lighter material, so it keeps that 47 millimeter feeling nice and light and doesn't feel actually that huge weight on your, it doesn't feel like a huge weight on your wrist. I'm going to go ahead and show you the side profile now. Here's the side profile of the watch, so a little bit large on the profile, but still can fit under suit coats, dress coats very nicely. We have nice brushed titanium, brushed titanium again on the sides of the case. Flip that over to the other side, you can see that nice brushed titanium again, OK. For the crown, the crown has Panerai's patented crown protector, which is this large crown guard here with the little lever that actually holds the crown down as shown. You can see in the resting position there, that little nib right there, pushing the crown down, holding it there, and it just simply releases by pulling out the lever and then you can adjust the watch with the crown now. In this first position here, this is the standard position, this is where you can wind your watch from a dead stop. 15 to 20 clockwise winds is all you need to get the watch started once more. A simple tugging of the crown, OK, OK, there we are, ooh, little bit too far, will allow you to access the quick hour jump system, so as you can see, just simply moving clockwise or counterclockwise you can shift the hour hand for quick and easy time adjustment such as if you're trying to move, if you're traveling and you're moving to a different time zone, you can immediately set it, let's just say, even if you're traveling from London to the Philippines, that's about seven hours, let's say, right now, it's currently 11:20, you can just immediately hit that seven hours, just one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, and there we are, 6:20, nice and easy. OK, but, and for, during this position, it's very nice, because the seconds hand actually continues to move during that process, so you still keep that exact timing that you've had before. Now, if you put the watch down, dead stop, from a dead stop, it's not keeping time anymore, and you need to reset the time, in the final position, the watch actually, the seconds hand will stop, as you can see in the subdial, the seconds hand has stopped moving. You can set the time exactly how you would like, so let's just say we're going to go back to London time, London time real quick, so let's just go ahead and just go back to that 11:20. There we are, we can set it down to the exact seconds. Even if you don't have the exact seconds you can check it with an atomic clock online, so you have that precise timekeeping. OK, so go ahead and talk about the strap now. The strap, it's a nice rubber strap, very sporty looking strap. The strap is a rubber strap made in Italy, and actually, it'll say it on the strap itself there, there we are, made in Italy. There's the official Panerai name stamped on there as well. The buckle is just a simple tang buckle that has the Panerai name embossed on there as well. The buckle itself is also titanium. All right, so let's go ahead and talk about the movement now. The movement is just housed in this very beautiful exhibition case back, housed behind a sapphire crystal so you can have that nice clear view while also having that protection from the sapphire crystal. The movement is a P.9010, which is an in house made Panerai movement made out of about 200 different components, has about 31 different jewels, about six millimeters thick, then has that Incabloc antishock device as I've mentioned before. The power reserve of this watch, you're looking at three days, as the name states, it is a three day submersible. That means it has a 72 hour power reserve, meaning you can put this watch down on a Friday evening, pick it back up on a Monday afternoon, and it'd be keeping time just fine. Let me actually go ahead and show you this watch on my wrist. OK, so there's the watch, very beautiful contrasting of the hands through that nice black dial and the hour markers. There's the side profile of that watch. A little bit large, but not too large that it wouldn't fit under your suit coats or dress coats.
