The iconic Luminor Marina by Panerai is presented in a new version: solid and robust – Panerai Luminor Marina PAM0097. Just like the stainless steel case and bracelet, the equipped mechanical movement P.9010 with automatic winding is built to last.
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. Symmetrical with the date at 3 o’clock is the counter at 9 o’clock in which the blue small seconds hand rotates, blue being the colour of Panerai and the sea, the element with which the brand has always been historically linked.
New Metal Bracelet
Panerai presents a new Luminor Marina fitted with a steel bracelet perfectly integrated with the case, the individual links being inspired by the iconic device for protecting the winding crown. The shape of each individual link recalls the iconic “bridge” device, and each one integrates perfectly with the rest – without any screws – forming a perfectly ergonomic bracelet which is flexible and pleasant on the wrist, being sporty but sophisticated in the design of its details and in the alternation of polished finish with brushed.
AISI 316L Stainless Steel
“AISI 316L 1.4435 stainless steel is Officine Panerai’s material par excellence since it is highly resistant to corrosion and is hypoallergenic, making it ideal for contact with the skin. The Panerai watches created for the Italian Navy were made of austenitic stainless steel, a reliable material that was also resistant to the extreme environmental conditions in which the commandos operated.”
On the back of the case, the bidirectional oscillating weight of the P.9010 Manufacture movement, automatic with a power reserve of three days, 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 10 bar (100 metres ) and 300 bar (300 metres) respectively.
