Buyer's Guide: Panerai Luminor

Which Panerai Luminor would you choose?⁠

The Submersible, ref. PAM 00024, was in production between 1998 and 2017. It features a seconds subdial at 9 o’clock and a graduated unidirectional bezel in the Egiziano (Egyptian) design. Its design takes in the essence of a rugged dive watch and its steel can withstand different temperatures.⁠

Panerai Luminor Base PAM 00112 is a simple two-handed watch that boasts a lumed “sandwich” dial. Compared to other Panerai watches, the Base focuses on readability and minimalism. ⁠

First introduced in 2006, the PAM 00233 is the first Panerai to use an in-house movement. It has a second time zone and a power reserve indicator with a reserve of 8 days, or 192 hours. It features a uniquely horizontal power reserve indicator, located just above six o’clock. This watch is also great for travelers, with a quick-jump hour setting allowing for the wearer to easily change time zones. ⁠
