Back to basics and basic functions.
Today’s news is that fake Panerai has launched a new watch-PAM01313-but there are actually more stories. This watch also marks the return of the Luminor Marina series, bringing a new direction to this iconic, simple and essential watch. Forget the retro accent, this rugged, easily recognizable watch is a return to basic looks. Let’s take a look at Panerai Luminor Marina 44mm PAM01313.
Under the guidance of Jean-Marc Pontroué, Panerai has been busy realigning its collection around four basic pillars; the elegant Due, the retro Radiomir, the sturdy Submersible and the essential Luminor . With this subdivision, the brand has also begun to clean up the series, and will continue to bring more visibility and harmony within the sub-series along this path. And this will start with the re-launch of Luminor Marina, which will become the theme of the brand in 2020.
Simpler, practical and modern, this is the new style of Marina. Simple colors-black, white and blue-and the iconic sandwich dial. When it was developed in the early 1950s, the name “Luminor” indicated the existence of a new luminous material designed to replace Radiomir used in World War II watches. According to Panerai, the new Luminor Marina follows this development and integrates “high-performance Super-LumiNova”…what does this mean? Well, to be honest, the brand applied white SLN on the sandwich dial and hands, which glowed green in the dark. It is not a revolution in itself… but in terms of design, it means that the brand will remake Luminor Marina watches with a modern look instead of “fauxtina”. Back to the roots.
Panerai Luminor Marina 44 mm PAM01313 uses a classic stainless steel case with a brushed surface and a polished bezel-a large watch with a diameter of 44 mm and a height of 15.65 mm. As a symbol of the Luminor series, the crown is protected by a trademark safety lock device, and together with the screw-in bottom cover, it is waterproof to 300 meters. The watch is equipped with a blue alligator leather strap and includes an additional blue rubber strap.
The dial of PAM01313 presents a beautiful dark blue sun lining color, which is in sharp contrast with the white SLN, giving the watch a modern and sporty appearance. The layout is based on the brand classics, with engraved numbers and hour markers, bar hands and small seconds at 9 o’clock. As a modern watch, it has a date display at 3 o’clock.
In order to power PAM01313, Panerai relies on its famous self-winding movement P.9010, developed and manufactured in-house. Thanks to the double barrel structure, the movement can store up to 72 hours of power reserve when fully wound. A practical feature of this movement is the quick setting of the hour hand, which can move forward or backward in units of one hour and adjust the date at the same time-especially useful when traveling.
