Introduction

Launched in 2021, the Panerai Submersible Bronzo Blu Abisso PAM1074 followed in the footsteps of Panerai’s industry-leading expansion into the world of bronze timepieces that began in 2011. Famed for their historic dive watches, Panerai’s expansion into bronze made sense given the metal’s use in some earlier Panerai prototype dive watches. Recognized as the brand that kickstarted the watch market’s current love of bronze, Panerai are known for their particularly high quality corrosion-resistant bronze alloy made from a blend of copper and tin. Measuring a rather svelte 42mm in diameter (at least by Panerai’s standards) the PAM1074 will fit comfortably on the wrist of most Paneristi. A conscious decision by Panerai, the Submersible Bronzo Blu Abisso is offered as a smaller watch to expand Panerai’s offerings to collectors that want to wear their iconic designs in a more palatable package than the hulking cases they have become synonymous with. Featuring its eponymous bronze construction, the Submersible Bronzo Blu Abisso’s Panerai aesthetic is entirely unmistakable as its crown guard and hour markers make it clear who designed this stunning timepiece. Powered by Panerai’s terrific cal. P.900 automatic movement, which is on view behind a titanium sapphire crystal caseback (to prevent allergic reactions), the PAM1074 offers an impressive 3 days of power reserve, ensuring this timepiece is certainly capable of withstanding anything you may throw at it.

THE DIAL

Fitted with a subtle blue dial, the PAM1074's display is beautifully refined with the gently aged golden hue of its bronze applied hour markers and hands nicely contrasting its blue dial and aged bronze bezel.

THE CONSTRUCTION

Due to the natural tendency of bronze to develop a patina across its surfaces, this PAM1074's 42mm construction includes a variety of unique golden, bronze, and brown tones, which ensure that no two examples from the reference look exactly alike.

TIMING MACHINE READOUT

This reading was taken (crown down) with a ONEOF Accuracy Boutique Edition timing machine at time of cataloging. It is provided as a courtesy only, and shall not be construed as a warranty or guarantee of any kind. Please refer to our terms and conditions of sale for more information.

Condition

Watch is in near-mint condition. The bronze case has aged as intended with surface patina, but shows no major dings or scratches.

Our Perspective

Offering Panerai's trend-setting usage of bronze in a 42mm package that many more collectors will be able to fully enjoy, the PAM1074 takes off where its 47mm sibling, the PAM671, left off - a beautiful reminder of Panerai's rich heritage as a dive watch manufacturer while also speaking to the brand's modern sensibilities.
