Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days 47mm PAM00422
The Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days expresses the excellent combination of vintage design and technology which makes Panerai watches unique. The special design of the Luminor 1950 case used is inspired by a rare, historic watch which is notable for the pronounced rounding of the cusps of the caseband. This detail recalls a stage of transformation, which took place in the 1940s, from the classic Radiomir cushion case to that of the Luminor.
The case 47 mm in diameter is made of polished AISI 316L stainless steel while the lever device protecting the winding crown is of brushed steel. The black dial, protected by a cambered sapphire crystal, is in the typical Panerai style, with the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock and the alternation of large figures and bar hour markers. The dial is of sandwich construction with a layer of ecru Super-LumiNova® contained between two plates, the luminosity emerging through apertures corresponding to the hour markers and figures, thus ensuring the maximum legibility and intensity of the dial.
In the P.3001 the power reserve indication is located on the bridge of the movement, and is therefore visible through the crystal on the back. It also has the seconds zero reset device and a mechanism for the rapid adjustment of the hour, enabling the hour hand to jump one hour at a time, without interfering with the movement of the minute hand or the running of the watch.
The Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days (PAM00422) is supplied with a strap of natural, untreated leather, fastened by a brushed steel buckle inspired by period models.
