Panerai Luminor Marina, The Importance of Small Second
Luminor Marina is one of the most iconic lines in the Panerai catalog. The small seconds indicator at nine o’clock is an unmistakable element of the Luminor Marina models. Like the color of the ocean, Panerai has their Luminor Marina in blue, without a doubt, one of the most popular colors in watchmaking.
This is not the first Luminor watch with blue dials, but there’s some other stuff that makes this Luminor Marina 42mm PAM01393 is the most talked about watch among watch enthusiasts.
The 42mm case shows the classic lines of Panerai’s Luminor 1950 case with a matte-brushed finish and a polished bezel. It highlights 24mm carries and Panerai’s quick-release strap alter framework. With a strong and solid screw-down caseback, the water-resistance of this watch could be an exceptionally fit until 300 meters.
The AISI 316L 1.4435 stainless steel that is used on this watch 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.
Next is the dial, the part that makes this watch extraordinarily pretty. Comes with Blue sun-brushed color, the dial features luminous Arabic numerals and hour markers to add the vintage style to this watch. There’s also a display date at 3 o’clock and small seconds at 9 o’clock as the true identity of the Luminor Marina collection.
Inside the watch, there’s P.9010 automatic movement, with a power reserve of three days. High quality technical content and subtly redesigned proportions have reduced the thickness and weight of these watches. Beating at 28,800 alterations/hour, this movement features incabloc anti-shock device to protect it from the unpredictable bump when you use it, so the movement will be safe.
To complete this watch, there’s blue alligator strap with tone on tone stitching that has 22.0/20.0 standard size that will be fit for any wrist size. If you are interested in this watch or any other Panerai’s collection, visit your nearest The Time Place boutique for more information.
