The Watch

Here we have a 2010 Panerai Luminor Marina 44mm Manual PAM00111 inspired by Panerai’s 1950s combat watch, the ref. 6152 with its iconic 44mm cushion stainless steel case, polished surfaces lead to thick straight screwed lugs that hug the wrist with a lug-to-lug length of 52.5mm and a case thickness of 14.5mm giving the watch an impressive wrist presence. On the right side is the characteristic crown guard with its release and locking mechanism, a smooth polished bezel holds a sapphire crystal above a black sandwich dial. A black stencil dial bearing the indexes and numerals is overlaid atop a fully-painted luminescent disc, this process has been perfected since its inception in the 1930s. Luminor is based on Luminova and has been developed by Panerai since the 1950s. The two hands are black-oxidised and infilled with Luminor luminance in striking contrast to the black of the dial. At 9 o’clock a small second sundial, at 12 o’clock we have “Luminor Marina" and at 6 o’clock “Panerai” motif completes this distinctive dive watch. On the reverse, a screw-down exhibition case back with the details of the watch engraved into it, inside a manually wound Panerai Cal. OPXI, 17 jewels, beating at 21,600 beats per hour, based on the ETA/Unitas 6497/2, Panerai has used this movement in various models since 2002. The watch comes paired with a 24mm Panerai leather strap with a signed buckle and the watch comes with its Panerai presentation box and paperwork.

Personal Note

Panerai is a brand that is instantly recognisable for what it is, their design language has remained relatively the same since the very early days, which is a testament to great design! This PAM00111 is exactly what I think of when I think of Panerai, large case size, big crown guards, black sandwich dial, and thick strap... This IS Panerai! I'd highly recommend booking an appointment to try it on if you are unsure of the size, they wear incredibly well even though they are on the larger size.

The Brand

In 1860 Giovanni Panerai opened his watchmaker's shop in Florence, it wasn't only a shop and workshop but also served as the city's first watchmaking school, Officine Panerai's was born. The shop later moved to its current location in the Palazzo Arcivescovile in Piazza San Giovanni, Italy, changing its name to "Orologeria Svizzera" at the beginning of the twentieth century. In 1916 Stemming from Marie and Pierre Curie’s 1898 discovery, to meet the military needs of the Royal Italian Navy, Officine Panerai created Radiomir, a radium-based powder that gives luminosity to the dials of sighting instruments. Reference to the name "Radiomir" is documented in the patent filed in France on 23 March 1916. The substance's properties are perfect for military applications with high visibility and the paint's excellent underwater adhesive qualities. In 1936 Panerai created the first prototypes of the model now known as "Radiomir" for the frogman commandos of the First Submarine Group Command of the Royal Italian Navy. The Navy's historical archives record that just ten prototypes were produced in 1936. It was during this time that a very unusual relationship between Rolex and Panerai was forged with the production of Ref: 2533. The design comes from a 47mm Rolex Oyster pocket watch. That was turned on its side so that the crown would be now located at 3 o’clock. In 1949 Panerai introduced a new luminescence substance called Luminor that was not only safer than radium-based Radiomir but also much more luminous. In 1955 Panerai launched the Luminor, a watch created for the Royal Italian Navy with its characteristic crown guard designed in the 1950s, invented by brother and sister Giuseppe and Maria Giuseppe Panerai. It wasn’t until 1993 that Panerai finally released the Luminor and Luminor Marina to the public. Today Officine Panerai is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Richemont S.A Group that includes Cartier, IWC, Montblanc, and Vacheron Constantin.
