Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio & Oro Rosso 42mm Watches Hands-On
Many years ago, when I wrote my first article about a watch, the watch I wrote about was a Panerai. Over the past decade, Panerai has grown and iterated but the root of my appreciation, that instantly recognizable Italian diver aesthetic, has remained as their calling card. Despite the fact that I did, and still do, love the Panerai look, they almost always prove to be too big for my wrist. Last week, as I scanned a collection of large and larger new Panerai watches at SIHH, I was thrilled to see this comparatively miniature marvel, the new 42mm Panerai Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic watch in both steel and gold.
