Panerai Platinumtec Luminor Marina PAM01116 (Price, Pictures and Specifications)
With its craftsmanship and experimental proprietary technologies Panerai enhances the essential qualities of its materials. In the wake of the 70th anniversary of the Luminor collection, named for the luminescent substance first patented in middle of the last century and an enduring signature of the brand, Panerai once again celebrates its iconic collection with a precious interpretation: the PlatinumtechLuminor Marina (PAM01116), guaranteed for 70 years.
A special edition with a singular identity, Platinumtech Luminor Marina is available exclusively at Panerai boutiques globally and produced in a limited edition of only 70 pieces. During its exceptional warranty term of 70 years the brand will provide customers with services to keep the watch in perfect functioning free of charge. On the back of the watch there is the “70 Years Warranty” logo applied through a metallization process.
Identifiable by its case and dial layout, Platinumtech Luminor Marina stands out in the Luminor Marina collection thanks to the noble metal that endows it with toughness: Platinumtech. An alloy reformulated and perfected by the Panerai Laboratorio di Idee, it is harder than conventional platinum with enhanced physical properties. The precious metal was selected to give the model greater resistance, though it is considerably more di cult to work and polish.
The delicate finishing of the Platinumtech Luminor Marina case requires, not surprisingly, a meticulous and highly specialized manual polishing process.
Masterful aesthetics have been matched by re ned, high-performance mechanics furnished by the self-winding Caliber P.9010, which has a three-day power reserve and is designed and developed entirely by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. The movement features a rapid adjustment system that can move the hour hand forward or backward in increments of one hour, independent of the minute hand.
Water-resistant to 5 bar (approximately 50 meters deep), the Platinumtech Luminor Marina features an alligator leather strap in dark brown with ecru stitching and a brushed Platinumtech trapezoidal pin buckle. A second strap, chosen according to the customer’s request at the time of purchase is also included, along with a screwdriver for changing and removing the Platinumtech trapezoidal buckle and a black lacquered wooden box with the luminescent Luminor Marina logo on the lid.
