The 42mm Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic is the first timepiece from Florence’s Officine Panerai to sport the original combination of the 42 mm diameter Luminor 1950 case and a white dial.
The forms of the case which is composed of AISI 316L stainless steel are those which have made the Luminor a true icon of international sports watchmaking, with the lever device shielding the winding crown to ensure water-resistance to a depth of 10 bar (around 100 metres). The case and the bezel are of a polished finish, in contrast with that of the bridge protecting the winding crown.
The white dial of this beautiful watch allows for maximum clarity and legibility, with large black figures corresponding to the hour markers, the date window at 3 o’clock and the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock, a feature of Panerai watches dating back as far as the 1940s.
The sapphire crystal back enables the Panerai P.9000 calibre to be admired. Assembled in Panerai’s manufacture at Neuchâtel, this is an automatic movement with a power reserve of three days, two spring barrels and the oscillating weight which rotates in both directions. The time is modified by a special system by which the hour hand is moved in intervals of exactly one hour, without interfering with the running of the minute hand.
The Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic, otherwise referred to as PAM00523, is fitted with a brown alligator strap and brushed steel buckle and is supplied with a special tool for replacing the strap as well as a steel screwdriver.
