Panerai Luminor Submersible OP6506

To me personally this was one of the sickest Panerai watches during the rise of the brand in the early 2000’s, still is actually. This Submersible dive-watch is one of the coolest timepieces you can buy if you don’t mind the larger case size (44MM) This here is a true tool-watch that can take a beating and one that doesn’t mind ”getting its hands dirty” It will truly do what it was made for; diving, swimming, wear it during the holidays, on the beach, sports sailing etc. Just rinse the watch with fresh water when you’re done, and you’re good to go for your next boardroom meeting or diner at 20:00.

This Panerai is a wonderful full set accompanied with everything the watch was sold with, including Panerai service papers from November of last year. The watch remains in all original, Panerai conditions with the desirable, Tritium dial and stainless steel bezel with Tritium ‘pearl’ at the 12 o’clock position. The skeleton style hands however were replaced by Panerai during the service, so these are Luminova filled hands. The case is in perfect condition and apart from the rubber strap there are also two leather straps present with the watch – one reddish brown, Panerai Alligator strap and one Ponte Vecchio brown, Panerai Calf strap with stainless steel Panerai butterfly buckle. Fun Fact: the first owner of this Panerai Submersible, who’s name is on the warranty card, is kind of a well known name in the watch industry, but will only be disclosed to the buyer of the watch (also due to privacy reasons of course). All in all we believe that this is a very nice collector-set for the true Paneristi, and a true Panerai limited edition at that! Only 1500 examples of this particular Submersible were ever manufactured.

This Panerai Luminor Submersible OP6506 was fully serviced in November of 2020 by Richemont/Panerai with all receipts available with the watch. We did a full check of the movement and did a fresh waterproof test – This ‘early’ and bona fide Panerai will be sold with a 24 month warranty.
