Panerai Submersible Elux LAB-ID PAM01800

The Submersible Elux, the shining star of the deep seas, has been introduced. After 8 years of research and development, this model is now available to watch enthusiasts under the LAB-ID umbrella.


Legibility in low light conditions is one of the most distinctive features of a Panerai watch. This feature is also the origin of the names given to the brand's most iconic models, such as Radiomir and Luminor. Today, Panerai elevates its light technology to new heights, redefining visibility in the dark.

The name Elux dates back to 1966. The earliest examples of Elux technology, an abbreviation for Electro-Luminescent, were incorporated into instruments developed for the Italian Navy. In the PAM01800 model, a micro-generator placed inside the watch case powers the hands, indices, and the dot on the bezel, making them glow using a magnet and coil system.


The model features a 49mm diameter case made of a material called Ti-Ceramitech. This material is 44% lighter than steel and has a fracture resistance 10 times greater than ceramic. The watch boasts a water resistance of up to 500 meters. The dial includes a power reserve indicator for luminescence at 6 o'clock. To activate the lights on the dial, hands, and bezel, simply press the button at 8 o'clock.


Equipped with the in-house developed automatic caliber P.9010/EL, the Submersible Elux movement offers a power reserve of 3 days. Of the 6 mainsprings in the mechanism, 4 are dedicated to light emission and 2 to timekeeping functions. When fully charged, the LEDs embedded throughout the watch can illuminate for up to 30 minutes.


The Panerai Submersible Elux LAB-ID PAM01800 will be produced in a limited edition of 50 units per year, with production continuing for 3 years. Production will cease once a total of 150 units is reached. The cost of owning this exceptional timepiece exceeds 100,000 Euros.
