PAM239 was produced by Panerai in a limited edition of 75 examples for its retailer in Paris ?Chronopassion?. Panerai had never before made an exclusive piece in response to a request from one of its retailers. Unlike other Luminor Submersibles, equipped with round luminous indexes, the black varnished dial of the PAM239 is decorated with appliqued luminous ?rod? indexes; this is the first time a Luminor Submersible was produced in a ?left-handed? version
