Iconeek is proud to introduce here a very fine and rare, cushion-shaped, oversized, self-winding, water-resistant, limited edition, stainless steel military diver's wristwatch with blue dial, date, helium escape valve, certified chronometer. This special edition of only 500 pieces is also called « La Bomba » by collectors, because the model belongs to the line of the first 1000 meters submersible watches created by Panerai. Ref. OP6541, the Luminor Submersible 1000 is also know under the name PAM00087. The PAM 87 was manufactured between 2001 And 2005. The present one with D serial number was produced around 2002.
This diver's wristwatch features a large 44 mm. brushed stainless steel case with patented locking crown, helium escape valve on the left side, an unidirectional anti-clockwise rotating coin-edge bezel with graduated scale for immersion time, a screw case back, a thick dome sapphire crystal with magnifying lens.
Under the sapphire crystal, we find a superb dark blue (second generation) « T Swiss Made T » dial with nicely aged luminous tritium Arabic numerals and baton indexes, a subsidiary guilloche seconds dial at 9, an aperture for the date. The steel Luminous baton hands are partially skeletonized and are a bit oxidized, which is often seen on Panerai Watches from the year 2001-2002 (E Series). The dial has a very attractive look due to the natural and uniform aging into a yellow/brown color of the luminous to the hands, indexes and dot on the bezel at 12.
Inside ticks a caliber OPIII, based on Valjoux 7750-P1, 13 1/4 lignes, 21 jewels, rhodium-plated, oeil-de-perdrix and special Panerai decoration, 21 jewels, straight-line lever escapement, monometallic balance, shock absorber, self-compensating flat balance spring, micrometer regulator, 42 hours power reserve, certified chronometer.
