A protective device encircles the winding crown, enhancing the masculine appeal of the timepiece. The new dial is black with luminous beige markers. Blue seconds hand adds a dash of pop to the overall sombre look.
The design and finish of the watch is smooth and sophisticated, with clearly defined curves. It has a blend of classic look and contemporary feel. The watch offers visibility at night and underwater. It has two models – 42 mm in diameter and 44 mm diameter.
Strapped for sailing
Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio has a bracelet that makes all the difference! The design harks back to first bracelet created by Panerai in 1999. The bridge-like design of the individual links forms an ergonomic bracelet that sits comfortably on the wrist. The alternating brushed and polished finish of the links complements the look of the watch. Keeping up with the current rage of interchangeable bracelets, Panerai has installed a patented system in Luminor Marina 1950. The bracelet can be replaced with another strap easily as it can be removed using the push button under each lug by using the special tool supplied. Also available separately, the steel strap is compatible with the Luminor 1950 case of models with the P.9010 movement.
Whether you are out in the sea, sailing over the weekend, or heading for your school reunion bash, the new Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio is Panerai’s answer for inimitable styling.
