Even though Panerai Luminor Marina Logo Acciaio is a military style watch, its heritage and distinctive design offers it a place among some of the most sought after timepieces of our time. The versatility that characterizes the Luminor Marina line, the attractive cushion-shaped case and the superior readability of the dial are just a few of the things that boost the watch’s popularity. Bold and stylish, the Luminor Pam00005 is an iconic model that looks spectacular on any type of wardrobe.
The relatively large 44 mm case of the Panerai Luminor Marina Logo Acciaio is perfect for those who prefer massive watches that make an unforgettable style statement. Some may consider it to be a little bit bulky, but this generous thickness allows it to stand tall and fierce on the wrist. The steeply angled lugs are a part of its unique design offering a nice minimal esthetic effect. Both the case and lugs are manufactured from AISI 316L Polished Steel. The case back is made from the same material and features the specific OP logos and markings. On the right side of the case there is the winding crown with the trademarked large protective guard which accentuates the masculinity of the model.
One of the well-known qualities of Luminor Marina models is that these have a very easy to read dial. Besides the large dimensions, the face of the watch is also very simple. These two coordinates enhance the readability. The black matte dial is nicely complemented by luminescent baton hour markers and stainless steel minutes and hour hands that have been also coated with luminous material. The particularity of Panerai watches is that these usually have only two large hands and the seconds are displayed in a small sub-dial. On the Pam00005 this small seconds dial is located at the 9 o’clock position. At the 6 o’clock position there is the famous OP logo. This is the symbol for the exclusive Panerai OP calibre, a high quality hand-wound mechanical movement that offers superior reliability and precision. Over the stunning Panerai Luminor Marina dial there is a magnificent sapphire crystal formed of corundum which looks very stylish and is also very resistant to scratches and daily use.
This Panerai Luminor Marina watch is powered by the exclusive OP II Calibre, an impressive hand-wound mechanical movement that is fitted with 17 jewels, 16½ lignes, an incabloc® anti-shock device and a Glucydur® balance. This C.O.S.C mechanism also features a 56 hours power reserve and a 21,600 alternations/hour. It is that type of movement that fascinates people with a passion for magnificently constructed mechanisms.
It is impossible not to feel intrigued by the timeless design and sophistication of the Panerai Luminor Pam00005. This stylish and masterfully constructed model offers much more than just an alluring aesthetics and a high end movement. It is the iconic military watch that has a rich heritage as the superlative companion of adventurous spirits.
