Panerai PAM01313

Panerai continues its evolutionary journey as with character it redefines the expressive dimension of the epic Luminor Marina.

In a year clearly dedicated to the Luminor Marina, Panerai once again explores original directions in the field of creativity by rewriting the aesthetic vocabulary of the emblematic model which more than any other embodies the brand’s unmistakable legendary image. Today this fundamental mainstay of the brand carries a Luminor collection with an accentuated identity.

Luminor Marina - 44mm PAM01313

A natural successor of the historic diver’s watch conceived in the early 1950s, with its name “Luminor” inspired by the luminous substance tritium used in the Second World War to replace Radiomir, the new Luminor Marina (PAM01313) – 44mm marks the umpteenth step in a continuous process of development. It is the result of advanced innovation and long-standing tradition, recalling the codes of a unique aesthetic and ready today, as always, to rank itself as an unquestionable milestone of Italian design.

The key to its long life is its distinctive identity, highlighted by the originality of the design of the dial, with its legendary sandwich construction. This highly recognized configuration, always a distinctive sign of the Panerai DNA, is today presented in blue, with a satiné soleil finish for the model fitted with the alligator strap.

Characteristic graphic expression further amplified by the natural reaction at the base of the fluorescent compound called to revive it.

High-performance Super-LumiNovaTM has been selected by the Panerai Laboratorio di Idee to revamp the collection. The new reference is characterized by the neon green of its retro luminescence, an unvarying evocative colour returning to the origins of the brand.

Luminor Marina - 44mm PAM01313

The mechanical heart of the collection is the P.9010 calibre, an automatic movement only 6 mm thick entirely designed and developed in the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. Reliable and accurate, it has a power reserve of three days provided by a twin spring barrel and it has the distinctive practical function for quickly setting the hour hand, which can be moved in steps of one hour forwards or backwards, at the same time automatically adjusting the date.

Water-resistant to 30 bar (a depth of about 300 metres), the new Luminor Marina (PAM01313) is supplied with the alligator leather strap fitted with a brushed steel buckle. A second technical strap in rubber completes the equipment of the series, with a special tool for changing it and a screwdriver for removing the clasp.

Panerai Luminor Marina

Panerai celebrates the essence of the legendary luminous compound with a new Luminor Marina notable for its particularly high visibility in the dark.

Exactly 70 years after the introduction of the tritium-based luminous substance Luminor, the name of which later came to identify one of the brand’s most emblematic model ranges, Panerai has once again gone off the beaten track by creating a brilliant, innovative model with even greater luminosity: the Luminor Marina – 44 mm (PAM01117). It is guaranteed for 70 years*.

The new Luminor Marina – 44 mm explores a hitherto untried aesthetic aspect, involving enhanced visibility. This is an important evolutionary step in a development process concerning the mastery of the emission of light which has been carried out by the brand since the 1940s. Today it has been further perfected, amplified and enhanced by the use of a Super-LumiNovaTM of the very latest generation.

Panerai Luminor Marina – 44 MM

The luminescence of the Luminor Marina – 44 mm disrupts tradition by going beyond the normal features of hour markers and hands. It breaks the borders of the luminosity, usually confined on the dial, giving the model a more striking recognisable identity.

Emerging from the darkness the decal on the dial, the rehaut and for the first time also new components like the stitchings on the strap, the crown, the crown protecting bridge and its lever. Iconic elements of the luminor case highlighted by an advanced Super-LumiNovaTM X1 which provides a higher degree of luminosity as well as persisting longer.

PAM1117

Surprisingly light (100 grams including the strap) and extremely strong, it owes its characteristics to its titanium structure, which is manufactured by the technology known as Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS), a process of futuristic 3D printing involving the sedimentation of titanium powder, sintered layer by layer by a high-powered optical fibre laser, 30 microns (0.03 mm) at a time.

Ensuring the model’s fundamental mechanical accuracy and performance is the P.9010 calibre, entirely conceived and developed by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. This is an automatic movement only 6 mm thick fitted with the function for quickly setting the time, which at the same time modifies the date. The movement has a power reserve of three days, provided by its twin spring barrels.

Panerai PAM1117

Conscious of the technical and mechanical reliability of its time-measuring instruments, reaffirmed in 2019 by the founding of the Pam.Guard care programme, Panerai raises the stakes by giving the Luminor Marina – 44 mm a 70-year warranty. Throughout this period Panerai will maintain the good working order of the client’s watch as necessary under the terms and conditions of the International warranty.

Water-resistant to 30 bar (a depth of about 300 metres), the new Luminor Marina – 44 mm is fitted with a strap made of Panerai SportechTM, woven to give a waterproof rubberised effect, blue with luminous stitching and a Velcro fastener. A second rubber strap, blue with a titanium tongue buckle, is also supplied, together with a tool for changing the strap and a special box with a luminous stylised representation of the dial of the Luminor Marina on its lid.

Luminor Luna Rossa GMT – 44mm

Panerai presents a new offering with dual time zone function strongly inspired by the Challenger of Record of the 36th America’s Cup, an authentic synthesis of Italian spirit and invention.

Panerai and Luna Rossa share a common mission: perfecting visionary tools destined to change the rules of the game. Today, that mission is renewed and solidified through a privileged partnership with a special dimension, the support provided by the Luminor Luna Rossa GMT – 44 mm (PAM01036).

Panerai Luminor Luna Rossa GMT

Unprecedented in its design, revolutionary in its mechanics and distinguished in its materials, the new Luminor Luna Rossa GMT – 44 mm is a model with a high degree of sophistication. It is a pure expression the affinity between Panerai and the Team that first launched the challenge to the Defender of the 36th America’s Cup, the final act of which is expected in Auckland, New Zealand, in 2021.

An embodiment of creativity, excellence and thoroughly Italian technical innovation, Luminor Luna Rossa GMT – 44 mm incorporates cutting-edge materials Panerai has in common with the Luna Rossa Team, like titanium, a metal with hypoallergenic properties and unrivaled lightness and corrosion resistance. With the addition of special carbon-based DLC coating the metal has an increased degree of wear resistance.

Panerai Luminor Luna Rossa GMT

Introduced to support Team Luna Rossa in the race for the 36th America’s Cup, the Luminor Luna Rossa GMT – 44 mm highlights and reaffirms its role as Official Watch with a personalized inscription on the dial as well as an intricate engraving on the case back. But above all, it explores new frontiers with the dial itself, which is covered in a thin layer of technical fabric from the sailing equipment of the AC75 monohull of Luna Rossa.

Selected to ensure the ultimate mechanical performance, the Caliber P.9010/GMT, designed and developed entirely by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, stands out for the presence of dual barrels that store sufficient energy for a three-day power reserve and rapid time adjustment connected to the modification of the date. The GMT function is crucial for synchronizing with the time zone of Luna Rossa as it is approaching to the 36th America’s Cup.

PAM01036

Water-resistant up to 30 bar (about 300 meters deep), the new Luminor Luna Rossa GMT – 44 mm is equipped with a Ponte Vecchio calfskin strap in black with white stitching. An additional black rubber strap is included, along with a box wrapped in technical sail fabric and personalized with the Panerai and Luna Rossa logos. Also enclosed is a certificate attesting to the authenticity of the technical material from Luna Rossa that composes the coating of the dial.

Panerai Luminor Marina Carbotech

Seventy years after the introduction of the iconic compound, Panerai celebrates this legendary material with a special edition of the Luminor Marina.

Seventy years after the birth of Luminor, a substance based on tritium which has the property of self-powered luminescence, officially recognised by the trademark registered in Rome on 26 January 1950, Panerai pays tribute to the past while strongly reaffirming its own particular identity with a new and exciting watch endowed with an indisputable personality: the Luminor Marina Carbotech™ – 44 mm (PAM1118). Guaranteed for 70 years*.

Panerai Luminor Marina Carbotech

Designed to be sold exclusively in Panerai boutiques throughout the world and produced in an edition limited to 270 units, its particular characteristic strength comes from the use of Super-LumiNova™. A compound of sophisticated quality, now experimented in its application on structural case components external to the dial in a formula of new generation “X1” which provides a higher degree of luminosity as well as persisting longer.

The new Luminor Marina Carbotech™ – 44 mm takes full advantage of its potential luminosity by emphasising its own personality out of all proportion lighting up new details. This treatment, in fact, has been applied not only to the iconic elements of Luminor case such as the bridge protecting the winding-crown and its locking lever, but also to the flange, the inscriptions on the dial and the stitching of the strap.

Luminor Marina Carbotech

On the aesthetic front, its non-homogenous texture is due to the Carbotech of which it is made. This unusual compound was introduced into high-quality
watchmaking by Panerai. It consists of thin layers of carbon fibres superimposed on each other, orientated alternately (a good seven layers per millimeter), fused together under high-pressure temperature-controlled conditions, and finally further consolidated with an advanced polymer. It is a material remarkable for its mechanical properties, its lightness and its resistance to stress and corrosion.

The traditional mechanism of the Luminor Marina Carbotech™ – 44 mm is a constant component of the Luminor Marina family, the calibre P.9010 movement with automatic winding, entirely designed and developed by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. It is fitted with the function for rapidly setting the hour hand, which at the same time automatically adjusts the date. The calibre P.9010 has a power reserve of three days, provided by the twin spring barrels.

Luminor Marina Carbotech

Particularly attentive to the technical and mechanical reliability of its timepieces, which has always been an essential, fundamental element of its philosophy, Panerai has taken this to the extreme and extended the guarantee to 70 years. Throughout this period Panerai will maintain the good working order of the client’s watch as necessary under the terms and conditions of the International warranty.

Water-resistant to 30 bar (a depth of about 300 metres), the new Luminor Marina Carbotech™ – 44 mm is fitted with a Panerai Sportech™ strap, black with luminescent stitching and Velcro fastening. A second strap in black rubber with a titanium tongue buckle completes the equipment, together with a tool for changing it and a special box decorated with a luminous image of the Luminor Marina dial on the lid.

PANERAI LUMINOR 1661 CARBOTECH

Panerai redefines the style of the iconic Luminor Marina by combining original creativity with avant-garde materials

Panerai continues its inexorable evolutionary process of experimentation with a striking new interpretation: the Luminor Marina Carbotech – 44 mm
(PAM01661). This is an exciting creation in a year which marks the relaunch of the Luminor Marina collection.

The Luminor Marina Carbotech – 44 mm marks a decisive aesthetic change, confidently capitalising on the expressive potential created and nourished by a new, evocative language which is today the basis of its more widely recognised identity; a Carbotech case and a Sandwich dial with blue Super-LumiNova markings.

This latest Luminor Marina model overturns convention, in that for the first time the collection combines the high-performance composite material developed by Panerai’s Laboratorio di Idee and the iconic Sandwich dial with vibrant touches of blue. An intense and highly distinctive combination, a further testimonial to the unequalled LAB-ID.

Panerai Luminor Marina Carbotech

This is a cutting-edge composite, formed of superimposed layers of carbon fibre which are alternately aligned, then consolidated under pressure and controlled temperature with a binding matrix, based on PEEK (polyether Ether Ketone). Highly resistant to external shocks and corrosion, it is recognizable for its aesthetic appearance, created by its irregular texture so that each piece has a unique character.

The watch has a well-known movement that is a prominent member of the Luminor Marina family: the P.9010 calibre, entirely designed and developed within the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. This is a tested automatic movement just 6 mm thick, fitted with the function for rapidly setting the hour hand, a process which simultaneously adjusts the date. It has a power reserve of three days provided by a double spring barrel.

Water-resistant to 30 bar (a depth of about 300 metres), the new Luminor Marina Carbotec – 44 mm is supplied with a strap in Panerai Sportech, a water-resistant rubber-like material, black with blue sewing. A second strap in black rubber completes the equipment, together with a special screwdriver for removing the buckle.

PANERAI LUMINOR SEALAND year of Rat

PANERAI LUMINOR SEALAND – 44 MM

Panerai celebrates the Luminor Sealand Year of the Rat with a special edition of 88 units decorated using the ancient technique of sparsello. Chinese astrological tradition depicted and enhanced by Italian craftsmanship.

Panerai recalls the evocative thousand-year tradition of the Chinese Zodiac with the new Luminor Sealand – 44 mm (PAM00863), a special edition created to anticipate and accompany the Year of the Rat which will officially start on the 25th of January 2020.

For Panerai this is a true tradition within a tradition which started in 2009 with the celebration of the Year of the Ox and culminating today, in the 12th year, with the Luminor Sealand – 44 mm dedicated to the Year of the Rat.

This is the 12th Panerai Luminor Sealand model and marks the end of the 12- year cycle in which each year is distinguished by a sign of the zodiac represented by an animal.

Both ambitious and brilliant, those born under this sign use their intelligence and shrewdness to adapt to any situation, easily overcoming the problems and pitfalls of everyday life. They are also endowed with inspiration and intelligence, qualities which they share with the rat, the animal represented on the steel cover of the Luminor Sealand – 44 mm dedicated to it.

PANERAI LUMINOR SEALAND – 44 MM Mens Watches

A distinguishing feature of every Sealand, the decorated cover – with a signalling mirror inside – is hinged at 12 o’clock on the brush-finished AISI 316L steel case of the 44-mm model. This aesthetic and functional element protects the grey dial with its printed Arabic numerals and linear hour-markers, supplemented by luminous SuperLumiNovaTM dots.

The decoration of the cover has been engraved by hand by Italian master craftsmen using the ancient art of sparsello. This technique is named after the tool, like a little scalpel, which is used to make incisions. These are then inlayed with gold threads which are carefully hammered to fill the recesses. This operation takes up to 50 hours of work for each watch.

The mechanical movement of the new Luminor Sealand – 44 mm is the P. 9010 Calibre with a power reserve of three days provided by twin spring barrels, and rapid time adjustment which also changes the calendar. With automatic winding and only 6 mm thick, it was entirely conceived and developed at the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel.

Water-resistant to a depth of 10 bar (about 100 metres), the new Luminor Sealand – 44 mm is fitted with a semi-matt calf strap, gold in colour with beige stitching, and it is presented in a pear wood box. It is supplied with a second strap of black rubber, a special tool for changing the strap and a screwdriver to remove the buckle.

PANERAI LUMINOR SEALAND – 44 MM
The Luminor Due – 42 mm in Goldtech

Powerful, intense and distinctive. Panerai Goldtech™ returns to take centre stage, fashioned into the forms of the new Luminor Due – 42 mm watches.

A synthesis of sophisticated elegance, historic roots and Italian design, since 2016 the Luminor Due has been the tangible expression of Panerai’s unceasing technicalaesthetic development. The powerful amplification of a new language. A model out of the ordinary. A careful custodian of elements which have re-emerged from history, but reassessed in its volumes and reinterpreted in its proportions.

The new Luminor Due – 42 mm turns to gold. The case, the bezel, the Safety Lock™ crown protective device, the back and the buckle are formed of alchemylike fusions of Panerai Goldtech™, a special 18-carat gold alloy with an original composition which is notable for its high percentage of copper as well as the presence of platinum. The purpose of the copper is to give the colour intensity and depth, while the platinum is there to lower the tarnishing effects of oxidation.

This elegant nonconformity is emphasised by the design of the dial. This is either black with a satiné soleil finish and sandwich structure (PAM01041), or white with luminous printed Arabic numerals (PAM01042).

The Luminor Due – 42 mm in Goldtech

The Luminor Due – 42 mm in Goldtech™ has a mechanical movement with automatic winding. It meets the requirement of being very practical and suitable for everyday use, while at the same time being a watch which is visually superb. The new P.900 Calibre fits perfectly into the small size of the Luminor Due case. Visible through the sapphire crystal back, with its thickness of just 4.2 mm it is today one of Panerai’s thinnest automatic movements.

Entirely developed and assembled at the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, the automatic movement with such a small diameter, combines the functions of date, small seconds and a power reserve of three days.

Water-resistant to 3 bar (a depth of about 30 metres) the new Luminor Due – 42 mm watches are supplied with an interchangeable alligator leather strap fitted with the Quick Release system, and a Panerai GoldtechTM clasp buckle. The strap is black with tone-on-tone sewing (PAM01041), or dark brown with beige sewing (PAM01042).

Pam.Guard

An advanced digital platform for the exclusive use of an established and devoted community of clients. An extension of the international limited warranty up to eight years.

The launch of Pam.Guard, an expansive care program developed to promote deep engagement with the Panerai’s world, is the brand’s latest project to expand and enhance customer experience. Participation in the program officially extends the international limited warranty for eligible watches up to eight years.

Pam.Guard debuts November 26, 2019. The concept was conceived, designed and executed by Panerai and its Laboratorio di Idee, the creative and technical heart of the Maison. Its research and development team applied the same rigor to building the advanced digital Pam.Guard platform as it does to the mechanical and material introductions destined for Panerai watches. The result is a portal that offers an unprecedented connection to the brand.

The first step to access the world of Pam.Guard to activate the international limited warranty limited extension is creating a personal profile using the intuitive, user-friendly interface found at panerai.com. Once a profile is active, users will be able to register their watches online.

Eligibility for Pam.Guard is limited to watches purchased no more than two years prior to the program’s launch date. The Pam.Guard program is retroactive and customers owing a watch purchased over the last two years prior to the program launch can benefit from the Pam.Guard international limited warranty extension.

Together with the reliability of its watches, Panerai reaffirms its reputation as a preeminent maker of timepieces with high technical and mechanical value – a reputation already established with a legacy of sophisticated, pioneering models.

“Pam.Guard communicates the true spirit of Panerai. Thanks to its strong, incisive concept, it goes beyond the traditional notions of customer support to reflect the advanced and innovative thinking that has always characterized the brand. It is a tool dedicated to the clients’ community, who Panerai guides on an interactive journey to fully understand the technical and historical ethos of the brand. A proactive form of engagement with consumers and at the same time a way to strengthen the sense of belonging to the Panerai community.

With this long-term vision, extending the international limited warranty up to eight years is a natural, virtually inevitable step. This commitment was made possible by the very high level of technical efficiency and reliability achieved by watches produced by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel,” says Jean-Marc Pontroué, CEO of Panerai.

Pam.Guard goes beyond the concept of a conventional care program. It is a highly customized service interface accessible through multiple devices and formats (desktop, mobile, iPad, WeChat), that can also be activated at Panerai and authorized retailers’ boutiques.

Personalized newsletters will call registered Pam.Guard members to deepen their knowledge of the brand at Panerai point of sales in the world. They are essential part of the immersive, Pam.Guard experience, as are a series of special gifts.

To draw attention to the distinct mission of the Pam.Guard program, the Laboratorio di Idee devised for it a signature logo that depicts the iconic Luminor Marina PAM01312 dial, a universally recognizable and evocative image of Panerai.

Deeply personal, the short film shows the audience that in order to go beyond to achieve greatness against incredible odds, you have to sometimes look back to where you have grounded yourself. A great life’s suggestion for everyone.

“The partnership between Panerai and Jimmy Chin expresses values with which our brand is strongly linked, commitment to sport and enthusiasm for new adrenaline challenges. Panerai heroes push limits and break records. Jimmy Chin has been pushing those boundaries throughout his career and we are proud to welcome him to the Panerai community,” said CEO Jean-Marc Pontroué.

Panerai Submersible 42mm
