In 2017, Panerai’s models from the famous watchmaking brand from Italy moved towards slimness and thinness, and upgraded the classic P.9000 movement to P.9010, retaining its outstanding performance. On the basis, the thickness of the movement is reduced, which also indirectly reduces the thickness of the case, and injects a new and elegant blood into the world-renowned Panerai. The thin thickness also allows more table friends who love Panerai to better control the atmospheric Panerai. Among the many new products, a timepiece with a small blue second hand is really eye-catching, that is the Panerai LUMINOR MARINA 1950 three-day moving watch, let’s take a look. (Watch model: PAM01392)
More classic models get upgraded
From this year, the Panerai classic movement 9000, which has been brilliant in the brand history for many years, will gradually withdraw from the historical stage and will be gradually replaced by the P.9010 movement. Compared with the 9000 movement, the 9010 movement not only maintains the functional characteristics of the three-day power reserve, but it is reduced by 2 mm in thickness, so that all watches equipped with this movement can be reduced in thickness and easy to wear. In order to facilitate the difference, Panerai will also add a ‘1’ to the original watch model, so that it can easily know its ‘predecessor’ version. This PAM01392 introduced today is based on the design of PAM00392.
It inherits the brand’s classic pillow case design and is highly recognizable. The diameter of the AISI 316L stainless steel case is 42 mm. The case is presented in two grinding methods. The bezel is polished and the rest is frosted, showing the two characteristics of stainless steel. The one-piece lug radian naturally allows the watch to fit the wrist well and is ergonomically designed.
Case thickness is only 13.2 mm
The Panerai brand patented crown protection bridge is also one of the more recognizable designs. It is made of AISI 316L stainless steel and integrates with the case. The crown bridge can well ensure the tightness of the watch’s crown, making the watch’s water resistance up to 100 meters.
The classic sandwich-structured case is simple and intuitive. The distinct Arabic and bar hour markers are perfectly integrated with the central hour and minute hands for convenient viewing. The 9 o’clock position is the small blue second hand, and the 3 o’clock position is the calendar display, giving the watch more connotation. In addition, the hands and hour markers have a luminous part, which can observe the time even in a dark environment, and has full reliability.
Through the transparent sapphire glass back cover, the appearance of the P.9010 movement appears in front of the eyes, full of mechanical sense. 6 mm thick, Glucydur® balance wheel, vibrating 28,800 times per hour. Two barrels guarantee a 3-day power reserve.
The black strap, decorated with beige stitching, is stylish and full of texture.
The frosted steel buckle is engraved with the Panerai English logo, which is traditional and classic, and convenient to wear.
