Panerai Presents a New Version of Their Iconic Watch, the Luminor Marina
Panerai’s iconic watch, the Luminor Marina, is now strong and robust in a new stainless steel case.
Available in sizes of 42 or 44 millimetres, the new Luminor Marina has a brand new silver-coloured dial, with a special brushed finish formed of vertical stripes, and large figures covered with white luminous material ensuring excellent visibility at night and underwater.
The date is at 3 o’clock, while the counter is at 9 o’clock where the blue small seconds hand rotates. The counter hands are blue, the colour of Panerai and the sea, which is a recurring theme to the brand.
The case is made of AISI 316L stainless steel, which is an alloy particularly resistant to corrosion. It has the classic Panerai design, unmistakable due to the “bridge” device that protects the winding crown, fitted with a perfectly integrated metal bracelet.
The shape of each link recalls the iconic bridge and it is harmoniously integrated with the other links – without any screws – in a bracelet which is perfectly ergonomic, flexible and pleasant on the wrist, sporty, yet sophisticated in design with alternating polished and brushed finishes.
On the back of the case is bidirectional oscillating weight of the P.9010 Manufacture movement that is automatic with a power reserve of three days. It can be admired through a sapphire glass porthole.
The calibre has the device for stopping the balance wheel to synchronise the watch and the mechanism for rapidly adjusting the hour hand, which can be moved forwards or backwards without interfering with the running of the minute hand. This particular function, very useful when setting the time or changing the time zone, also enables the date to be adjusted very quickly.
The two versions of the new Luminor Marina with a diameter of 42 mm (PAM00977) and 44 mm (PAM00978) are water-resistant to 100 metres and 300 metres, respectively. For more information about the new Luminor Marina or other Panerai watches, visit www.panerai.com.
