Light on the wrist and lovely on the eye, the all-black Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Automatic Ceramica launched earlier this year of part of Panerai's "Special Editions" collection. Its handsome good looks are 100% Luminor, but its brushed-black ceramic case is 100% cutting edge. Synthesised from zirconium oxide powder to ensure both lightness and toughness, it is resistant to scratches, corrosive agents and high temperatures. Beneath the matt-black 47mm case is a P.9000 manufacture movement, crafted entirely in-house by Panerai. Water resistant to 300m, the only flash of colour on this darkly masculine timepiece is the ecru Super-LumiNova hour markers, graduated scale and partially skeletonized hands.
