Not all revolutionary innovations are discernable by the human eye — when looking at the 47mm Officine Panerai Luminor 1950 Submersible BMG-TECH™ you might not take notice, but this is the first mechanical watch whose case is made of BMG-TECH™.

“BMG-TECH™ is a bulk metallic glass with a disordered atomic structure,” explains Panerai, rendering it harder and lighter than steel and also corrosion-resistant, meaning it’s extremely strong while being able to preserve its appearance over time. Retaining all the special details that have made the Luminor 1950 Submersible an illustrious sports watch, the BMG-TECH™ version is one all watch lovers should all take notice of.
