Officine Panerai has announced the comeback of their “Luminor Marina” collection, as it celebrates the 70th anniversary of this building block timepiece. In essence this is a return to the basics, as Panerai sets aside vintage accents in exchange for robust core features that originally made this such an iconic watch to begin with.
The 44mm case is made of stainless-steel with a brushed finish and a solid case back. Mounted to the case is a steel polished bezel, which adds a touch of depth against the otherwise contrasting brushed finished case.
It also comes equipped with the iconic extra reinforced Panerai crown guard featuring is deteachable security lever. All topped by a sapphire crystal, water-resistance on this watch can reach up to 300 meters (984 feet).
Time is exhibited on a sun-brushed blue dial with hour index markers and the Arabic numerals: 6, 9 and 12.
There is also a gradient effect applied to the blue hue throughout the dial, which combined with the iconic Panerai sandwich-style layering of the dials markings, add an extra dimension to its overall look.
It also includes a sub-seconds aligned with the 9 o’clock position and a date aperture at the 3 o’clock spot. The central steel hands, sub-seconds, index markers and Arabic numerals have all undergone a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility.
