Panerai launches new version of the Luminor Marina
June 4, 2019: Panerai’s iconic watch, the Luminor Marina, is now available in a new version. It is strong and robust, like the stainless steel of which the case and bracelet are made, with the P.9010 Manufacture automatic mechanical movement. The new Luminor will be available in sizes of 42 or 44 millimetres, water-resistant to 10 bar (100 metres ) and 30 bar (300 metres) respectively.
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. The case, made of AISI 316L stainless steel, an alloy particularly resistant to corrosion, has the classic Panerai design, unmistakable thanks to the “bridge” device which protects the winding crown, and it is fitted with a perfectly integrated metal bracelet.
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.
