Panerai Submersible PAM1055 Verde Militare 42mm Watch Review
Posted by Daniel Luczak on 17th May 2020
2019 was quite an active year for Panerai, and the company focused heavily on the production and improvement of the Submersible watches.
In January 2019, Panerai released a brand-new submersible watch, and since then, we have seen a whole new range of these watches. Panerai Submersible PAM 1005 Verde Militare is yet another submersible watch, and it may just be the best looking submersible yet.
This is a limited edition watch. Panerai only produced 500 pieces, and the watch is only available on the official e-commerce portal on Panerai’s website.
Why Is The Panerai Submersible PAM 1005 Special?
Why is Panerai Submersible PAM 1005 a big deal? Well, this is the first-ever submersible to come out in a military green dial. The words "Verde Militare" refer to this color scheme, and the watch looks like something out of a futuristic sci-fi movie with a striking green dial.
Moreover, the watch comes with a green rubber sports strap. This entire combination of military green gives the watch an elegant and unique look that no other watch offers. PAM 1005 stands out among the competitors, and rightfully so.
The Resilient Case
Since this is a submersible watch, the watch is quite durable and powerful in terms of construction. The powerful stainless steel case is sturdy and offers a water resistance of up to 300 meters.
The case is 42mm in diameter and 14.37mm in height. This makes the watch sleek yet comfortable around the wrist. Moreover, the stainless steel used in the case is also AISI 316L brushed steel. This distinction makes the steel pop out and remain scratch less for a much longer time.
The watch also comes fitted with a brushed steel anti-clockwise rotating bezel with graduated scale for the highest level of magnetic resistance. Additionally, the timepiece comes pre-fitted with Panerai’s patented crown-protecting device.
The Gorgeous Military Green Dial
This is the first submersible to use this military green color scheme for the dial and the strap. The hour markers and indicators come with white Super-Luminova coating with green or blue luminescence. This enhances the overall readability of the watch and makes it perfect for all environments.
There is a date window at three o'clock, which is quite small but readable. Also, there is a small seconds dial placed at the nine o'clock position. The overall texture of the dial is rugged, and this makes the entire watch look amazing.
The Powerful Movement
Like its predecessor submersibles, Panerai Submersible PAM1055 Verde Militare also uses the in-house caliber P.9000. This in-house movement comes with a massive power reserve of 72 hours (3 days).
Moreover, to enhance the overall anti-magnetism and stability of the timepiece, the movement uses a Glucydur balance. It is a powerful anti-magnetic alloy created from beryllium, copper, and iron.
To ensure that the watch can withstand immense shocks and harsh environments, Panerai used Incabloc shock protection. This mechanism protects the watch against powerful shocks and magnetic surges.
What Is the Bottom Line?
Panerai is a master of creating elegant, rugged and powerful timepieces. Panerai PAM 1005 is just another example of perfection, precision, and beauty combined into one must-have watch. For the watch enthusiasts out there, the Panerai PAM 1005 was a delightful surprise.
