As you can see, the new Submersible 42mm is available in two references – the grey-dialed version with blue ceramic bezel is the PAM00959, while the black-dialed variation with black ceramic bezel insert is PAM00683. While the black-dialed variation is much more of a classic Panerai look, the grey dial, with its visibly textured surface, is a very appealing design. The dial of each watch is nicely balanced, with plenty of lume filling the applied round and stick markers to ensure legibility at night and when deep diving. The hands, which are also amply filled with lume, are massive. The Submersible 42 is a tool watch if there ever was one, and visibility in darkened conditions looks like it was a chief design factor along with water resistance. We won’t settle the eternal date window debate for now and forever, but windows here seem to get it right, at least to my eye. They’re unobtrusive yet legible, with a background that matches the color and depth of the grey and black dials, respectively.
