A less obvious
(and onerous) technical innovation comes in the form of the Luminor 1950 Submersible BMG-Tech 3-Days Automatic. Give it a passing glance, and you’ll think that Panerai has just given the existing 1950 Submersible a quick update with a blue dial. However, you’d be missing the fact that the case is actually made of bulk metallic glass, or BMG-Tech. The almost industrial sounding material is an alloy of zirconium, copper, aluminum, titanium and nickel, which is created in a heating and cooling process that makes the atoms stay in a chaotic structure. This gives it a particularly high material resistance against corrosion, shocks, scratches, and even magnetic fields. Those who abhor such signs of wear and tear will absolutely be drawn to this high-tech piece.
