panerai luminor marina quaranta


The Florentine watchmaker is banking on a new diameter to fit all types of wrists, on three classic dial colors and on its quick-change strap system to sail through life according to your mood.

The Luminor Marina is impressive with its unique look defined by its cushion-shaped case, its perfectly identifiable crown guard and its famous “sandwich” dial. It is now available in a version with dimensions adapted to all types of wrists. With the new Luminor Marina Quaranta, Panerai introduces a 40mm inclusive diameter that replaces the 42mm and becomes the smallest of the collection. To mark this milestone, the Florentine brand presents a trio of timepieces in bright, classic colors.

On the dial side, it brings to life the central hours and minutes, the small seconds in a counter at 9 o’clock, and the date in an aperture at 3 o’clock.

Only PAM01272 features a blued seconds hand. The date is also adapted to this color chart by being displayed in black or white on a light or dark background.
