The Panerai Luminor Marina is a modern classic, a timepiece that over the years has been reinterpreted in countless ways, but it has always remained faithful to the brand’s core aesthetic values. This archetypical Panerai is a model with a very strong identity that looks good on the wrist of a self-confident successful man that knows how important a timeless luxury watch can be for your style and social identity.
With a 44 mm case, this masculine and rugged model is certainly not for everyone. Its appearance is anything but subtle. Manufactured from AISI 316L Polished Steel, the case is considerably large, but its generous dimensions are part of its charming looks. The 14.48 mm thickness of the watch enhances the bold appearance of the timepiece and allows it to sit well on the wrist.
The simple and legible white dial features the classic 3, 6, 12 hour markers and the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock. Actually, the name “Marina” was added as a symbol of the chronograph counter that was included at the request of the Royal Italian Navy divers for whom a few seconds were of vital importance. Besides the effective design improvement, the sub-seconds dial is also a very helpful feature that allows you to quickly see if your watch is running.
The movement used by Panerai for this Luminor Marina is a hand wound COSC certified OP XI Calibre that has 17 jewels, an Incabloc® anti-shock device, a Glucydur® balance, a Swan’s neck regulator and a 56 hours power reserve. This beautiful mechanism is displayed through the elegant sapphire caseback.
There is a particular elegance to the Panerai Luminor Marina that is quintessential for the historic roots of Officine Panerai. The Italian manufacturer has designed this timepiece as a perfect example of timeless perfection. Its unmistakable look, outstanding features, iconic protecting crown system and oversized cushion-shaped case are the things that make this model uniquely remarkable.
