New Panerai Luminor Marina: The rebirth of the legend
Panerai continues its evolutionary journey as with character it redefines the expressive dimension of the epic Luminor Marina
In a year clearly dedicated to the Luminor Marina, Panerai once again explores original directions in the field of creativity by rewriting the aesthetic vocabulary of the emblematic model which more than any other embodies the brand’s unmistakable legendary image. Today this fundamental mainstay of the brand carries a Luminor collection with an accentuated identity.
A natural successor of the historic diver’s watch conceived in the early 1950s, with its name ‘Luminor’ inspired by the luminous substance tritium used in the Second World War to replace Radiomir, the new Panerai Luminor Marina (PAM01313) – 44mm marks the umpteenth step in a continuous process of development. It is the result of advanced innovation and long-standing tradition, recalling the codes of a unique aesthetic and ready today, as always, to rank itself as an unquestionable milestone of Italian design.
The mechanical heart of the collection is the P.9010 calibre, an automatic movement only 6 mm thick entirely designed and developed in the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. Reliable and accurate, it has a power reserve of three days provided by a twin spring barrel and it has the distinctive practical function for quickly setting the hour hand, which can be moved in steps of one hour forwards or backwards, at the same time automatically adjusting the date.
Water-resistant to 30 bar (a depth of about 300 metres), the new Panerai Luminor Marina (PAM01313) is supplied with the alligator leather strap fitted with a brushed steel buckle. A second technical strap in rubber completes the equipment of the series, with a special tool for changing it and a screwdriver for removing the clasp.
