A few months prior, we acquainted with you another and significant model for Panerai, the patched up Luminor Marina 44mm PAM01313 . Exemplary in its execution with a steel case and blue dial, it generally marked the comeback of the Luminor Marina assortment, with another heading for this symbolic model. No vintage highlights, no complex development, simply a streamlined and fundamental plan focussed on capacities and current style. Close to this blue model, there was a subsequent watch dispatched, and shockingly we’re discussing the first-ever “white sandwich” Luminor watch… We investigate the PAM01314.
Since his landing in the head of Panerai, Jean-Marc Pontroué has attempted to explain Panerai’s assortments. There was in reality an absence of consistency and legebility, for certain models barely recognizable as a Luminor or a Radiomir, a few watches with plunging qualifications, a few watches with present day design… The thought has been to pull together Panerai’s assortment around four major columns; the rich Due, the vintage Radiomir, the strong Submersible and the fundamental Luminor. Alongside this division, the brand has likewise begun to tidy up the assortments and will proceed in this way to bring greater perceivability and amicability inside the sub-collections.
More engaged, more straightforward, useful, and currently planned (see, no fauxtina, no vintage components), what you see here is the new style for the Luminor Marina. The thought is to carry a more available model with usefulness, fundamental plan and clear tones – dark, blue or white. While the genuine section level model to the universe of Panerai stays the Luminor Logo (estimated around 5k), the Luminor Marina becomes the exemplary programmed and oceanic model of the brand. This likewise implies the presence of the famous sandwich dial. At the point when it was created in the mid 1950s, the name “Luminor” demonstrated the presence of another brilliant material intended to supplant the Radiomir utilized in WWII watches. As indicated by Panerai, the new Luminor Marina follows this improvement with the mix of “high-execution Super-LumiNova.” This implies that the brand returns to making Luminor Marina watches with a contemporary look, and no phony patina brilliant material.
The instance of this Luminor Marina PAM01314 is all that you’d anticipate from a Panerai. At 44mm, it is huge yet this “oversized” idea is some way or another piece of Panerai. Furthermore, with a stature of 15.65mm, don’t anticipate that this should slide under a sleeve. It is a Luminor all things considered. The pad molded case is the cutting edge form of this symbolic plan, with more honed points and keeping in mind that the middle case is brushed, the bezel is cleaned. On the correct side is the mark Safety Lock gadget ensuring the crown, which along with the screwed caseback ensures a 300m water-opposition. The Luminor Marina is a genuine sea-going model, however not a legitimate diver’s watch because of the absence of turning bezel – this is the Submersible collection’s mission.
The generally speaking execution of the PAM01314 is strong and clean, as you’d anticipate from a watch in this value range. It is here worn on a dull earthy colored, easygoing looking Scamosciato cowhide lash with white stitchings, shut by a brushed pin clasp. An extra dark elastic lash and the device to transform it are additionally remembered for the introduction box.
The most perceptible part of this version of the Panerai Luminor Marina 44mm is its dial. From the start, you’d think it looks pretty recognizable in any case, truth be told, this is the primary white sandwich dial at any point done by Panerai. The brand has done different white dials before, generally with this plan – which means printed Arabic numerals all around the dial and radiant spots – yet never with its notable two-layer development. Here, we have an unadulterated, spotless and new white upper plate with a grained surface. The patterns uncover the Arabic numerals and hour markers, just as the lower plate covered with dark Super-Luminova, hence offering better differentiation during the day, and incredible radiance at night.
The show remains, nonetheless, exemplary with focal hours and minutes – with cleaned stick hands – and a little seconds situated at 9 o’clock. There’s additionally a date window, clarified by the more contemporary, day by day use direction of this Luminor Marina PAM01314. While I surely comprehend its utilization here, the actual mix might have been refined. It’s altogether too unpleasant, insufficient “integrated” inside the remainder of the dial. Notwithstanding, the utilization of a white dial is fairly satisfying and adds another measurement to the exemplary dim look of Panerai watches. It’s lighter, fresher and less instrumental.
Under the screwed steel caseback is the brand’s exemplary programmed development, the type P.9010, created and fabricated in-house. On account of a twin-barrel design, this 4Hz development can put away to 72 hours of force hold when completely twisted. A viable element of this type is the speedy setting of great importance hand, which can be moved in strides of one hour advances or in reverse, while at the same time changing the date – particularly reasonable when travelling.
