The Panerai Submersible replica aesthetic is familiar – a unidirectionally rotating bezel is still paired with a cushion case and a Luminor-style crown guard. These are proper dive watches – in the case of the Submersible 42, they can go to to 300 meters. The decision to put its most robust tool watches in its own distinct collection seems like a good one. On the wrist, the Submersible 42 fits comfortably and has terrific presence. 42mm is currently the smallest Submersible size, but this watch still feels every bit a Panerai and ever bit a technical dive watch. And of the cushion shape of the case, with its protruding corners, to say nothing of the protruding crown guard, cause the Submersible 42 to wear a touch larger than its stated diameter would have you believe.
Panerai is offering a similar two-watch edition replica Panerai Submersible Mike Horn made with their longtime ambassador Mike Horn. Horn is an incredibly accomplished world explorer, sailor, and environmentalist and this is not his first time working on a special edition with Panerai. The two versions are largely identical but can be easily differentiated by the color of the luminous material used on the dial. The standard model is the green-lumed PAM00984, while the PAM00985 uses a blue coloring.
