Investing in a pre-owned Panerai Luminor Marina is an excellent idea

A new Luminor Marina on recent Panerai models

The Luminor Marina has made the success of the Italian brand. Panerai therefore celebrates the essence of the legendary light component with a new Luminor Marina remarkable for its particularly high visibility in the dark. 70 years after the introduction of Luminor, the tritium-based luminescent substance that lent its name to Panerai's most emblematic model range, the brand has developed three brilliant, innovative and even brighter models: the Luminor Marina- 44mm. The luminescence of the Luminor Marina - 44mm has nothing traditional about it, it illuminates more than indexes and hands. The luminosity of these models extends far beyond the dial. Against a dark background, the luminescent substance highlights the dial, the bezel and for the first time other elements such as the topstitching on the bracelet, the crown and the crown protection bridge.

A review of the Panerai PAM372 

On the wrist, the watch is very large. Nevertheless, it remains easily wearable thanks to its cushion shape. But a wrist of 17 cm in circumference seems to be a strict minimum to envisage a healthy relationship with beauty. It is not so much the 47 mm diameter that may surprise, but rather the rather important thickness (16.45 mm anyway!) due to the prominence of the chimney glass. The strap that equips this Panerai PAM 372 is magnificent and also contributes to the personality of the watch. Its comfort is good even if its 26 mm width is quite impressive. Rigid at first, it will probably take a few hours of wearing to make the strap soft and really comfortable. Finally, the readability is, as always at Panerai, excellent - the curved glass does not generate too many reading distortions. On the other hand, the "patinated" SuperLumiNova seems a little less efficient than the classic green SuperLumiNova while still being effective - check it out on the standard models! Panerai offers us with this Radiomir Luminor 3 Days - 47 mm PAM 372 a watch that will leave no one indifferent. A neo-vintage timepiece without concession, it has the charm but also some of the small drawbacks of a real period piece. Its characteristics reserve it for the purists / collectors of the brand. 

Which movement on the PAM372 ? 

Taking the counterpart of its look, the PAM 372 is in the modern movement side and inaugurates the new P.3000 of manufacture. This manual caliber has a power reserve of 3 days. It has a "platinum ¾" type architecture and is equipped with two barrels and a large-diameter balance (13.2 mm). Visually close to the P.2002, it has the same brushed finish as the Manufacture calibres. This finish is reminiscent of that of the vintage Angelus calibre that equips the mythical Luminor 203. The amateurs of "view on the movement" will however be disappointed insofar as the bridges mask most of the components. This Panerai benefits from a "GMT setting" of the time: it is possible to advance the hour hand by jumping one hour, a practical detail for a quick time change. Note also that this movement is not certified by the C.O.S.C. unlike the Unitas used until now. Finally, the 3-day power reserve is welcome but will perhaps remain anecdotal on such a typical watch which will mainly be worn on the WE... Indeed, its dimensions and its look make it not very versatile and exclude almost immediately its wearing in suit.

What it the most recent movement on Panerai ?

All 3 references are equipped with the P9010 caliber movement, which ensures their mechanical precision and performance. This is an automatic movement which is only 6-mm thick, equipped with a function that allows the time and date to be changed simultaneously. The movement has a power reserve of three days, ensured by its two barrels. You can blindly trust the precision of Panerai watches movements, they are truly excellent. Of course, if you purchase a vintage Panerai from the 1960s, make it serviced by a professional. 

The new Panerai PAM01117 model

Surprisingly light (100 grams in total, including the bracelet) and extremely resistant, it owes its characteristics to its titanium structure, manufactured by Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) technology, a 3D printing process involving the sedimentation of titanium powder, sintered layer by layer by a high-power fibre-optic laser, 30 microns (0.03 mm) at a time.

Case: Micro-sanded titanium 44 mm in diameter and 15.65 mm thick. Bezel, crown and crown guard bridge Safety Lock (registered trademark) in microsanded titanium with luminescent profile. Sapphire crystal obtained from corundum. 12 lateral screws in microsandblasted titanium, engraved with the words "70 Years Warranty".

The dial is wonderful : Blue with sunray finish, sandwich structure, Arabic numerals and hour-markers coated with Super-LumiNovaTM green with green luminescence. Small seconds at 9 o'clock, date at 3 o'clock.

The Panerai bracelet is a SportechTM Panerai, blue with luminous stitching, Velcro fastening system and satin-finish titanium buckle. Additional blue rubber strap with titanium trapezium buckle.

The water resistance is 30 bars, which means around 300m depth. 

What to think about the Panerai PAM01118 wristwatch ?

PAM01118 is made of CarbotechTM which gives it an irregular texture. Panerai introduced this unusual component to the world of fine watchmaking. CarbotechTM consists of thin layers of carbon fibres superimposed and aligned alternately (one millimetre contains seven layers). They are then fused at high pressure and controlled temperature and consolidated using an advanced polymer. This remarkable material is known for its mechanical properties, light weight, impact and corrosion resistance. The box is made of CarbotechTM, 44 mm in diameter and 14.5 mm thick. Dial, crown and bridge guard Safety Lock (registered trademark) with luminescent profile. Sapphire crystal obtained from corundum. 12 lateral titanium screws with DLC coating, engraved with the words "70 Years Warranty".

Bezel: Black with sunray finish, sandwich structure, Arabic numerals and hour-markers coated with Super-LumiNovaTM green luminescent, luminescent white decal inscriptions "Luminor Marina" "Panerai" and "Automatic". Small seconds at 9 o'clock, date at 3 o'clock. Luminescent ring on the rim of the dial.

The bracelet and the water-proof performances are the same than on the PAM01117.
