LUMINOR MARINA FIBRATECH
ODE TO LIGHT
The 1950-created Luminor illuminates the dials of Panerai dive watches. To celebrate this anniversary, limited series embrace a warranty lasting until 2090!
For the 70 years of this luminescent material made based on tritium which gave its name to the Florentine brand’s well-known collection, Panerai has released a Luminor Marina as a limited 270-piece series which embraces a warranty of… 70 years! Besides its 44 mm-diameter case waterproof to a depth of 300 m and crafted in a material obtained by basalt fusion, FibratechTM, this model PAM0119 stands out with its one-of-a-kind X1-type Super-LumiNovaTM, developed by RC Tritec, which features on its iconic elements. As such, the crown-protecting bridge, the crown itself, the locking lever as well as the dial and the overstitching on the SportechTM-fashioned black strap light up in the dark spectacularly for an ever-so long period of time.
This timepiece’s time data is driven by a self-winding movement. The P.9010 caliber incorporates a system which ensures that the hour hand and the date can be set simultaneously. Once fully wound, it delivers a power reserve of 3 days thanks to the existence of two barrels.
For the occasion, the Florentine brand also proposes two other limited editions which, once again, enjoy an extended warranty of seven decades. The Luminor Marina Titanio DMLS (PAM0117) combines a titanium case with a sunray-brushed blue dial and a matching-colored SportechTM strap. The carbon fiber Luminor Marina CarbotechTM (PAM01118) opts for monochrome black adornments. Both pieces flaunt the same luminescent features.
Price: CHF19,300 (Fibratech)
