The PANERAI PAM 048 Luminor Marina Automatic Acciaio, made by the traditional Italian watch manufacturer OFFICINE PANERAI, is characterised by timeless design, excellent workmanship and technical perfection. For years, the brand has been synonymous with the highest level of the watchmaker’s art – looking at the PANERAI PAM 48, it quickly becomes obvious why PANERAI enjoys its solid reputation with ‘Paneristi’ the world over.
Even the PANERAI Luminor Marina Automatic Acciaio PAM 048’s case, made of satin-finished AISI 316L stainless steel, is a demonstration of the level of craftsmanship and technical ability employed in the new Swiss PANERAI factory. An OPIII calibre automatic movement does its work inside the casing.
With 28,800 oscillations per hour, an Incabloc® anti-shock device and a 42 hour power reserve, even under adverse conditions this watch will stay absolutely precise. Furthermore, the casing is water-resistant to up to 30 bars of pressure – this corresponds to a water depth of around 300 meters. The bezel is made of polished stainless steel and is discreetly, though effectively, set off from the body of the casing so that the watch appears interesting and extraordinary, but not ostentatious.
The watch face is black with fluorescent numerals and markings so that, even in the dark, checking the time is easy. Besides the Luminor Marina Automatic Acciaio lettering, there is also the date at the 3 o’clock position and a small second at the 9 o’clock position. The design allows the watch face to appear tidy and uncluttered.
The entire dial is protected by solid, 3.5mm sapphire glass with a magnifier inside, located above the date. The wristband, which has a length of 115/75mm and is made of soft, dyed brown alligator-leather, is already fitted onto the watch; close it by means of a fold-over satin-finished steel clasp. Experience the comfort of such a high-quality, classic watch for yourself, which, thanks to the size of the casing, is also well suited to smaller wrists.
