Luminor Marina Acciaio

With this classy timepiece from the historic PANERAI collection, you get a high-quality, top-class watch and become a Paneristi all at once. The casing and the bezel of the PANERAI PAM 111 are made of polished stainless steel, while the historic crown-protection is made of satin-finished steel. This classic is equipped with a mechanical movement with manual winding and 3.5mm thick anti-glare sapphire glass.

The Arabic numerals and markings on the black sandwich dial are easy to read, even in the dark, thanks to the fluorescent Super-LumiNova® pigments. The seconds display is situated at the 9 o’clock position. This timeless, elegant piece is water-resistant up to 30 bar (~ 300 meters) and offers a power reserve.

Background information and configuration

The case is 44mm in diameter and made of rust-free polished AISI 316L steel. Aside from the crown-protection typical of the historic Luminor collection, the timepiece also features the exclusive calibre OP XI, a Glucydur® balance, an Incabloc® anti-shock device and a swan-neck fine adjustment. The casing, like the bezel, is made of polished steel, while the bottom of the casing is transparent sapphire glass. The sapphire glass is 3.5mm thick and non-reflecting to ensure the time can be read easily.

Characteristics and material

Only rust-free AISI 316L steel is used in the manufacture of this classy timepiece, as it is not only resistant to corrosion, but also because its hypoallergenic qualities make it good for skin contact. In addition, the casing’s 44mm diameter makes it especially well-suited to smaller wrists. The light brown calfskin strap is 115/75mm in length and, with its warm colours, is a lovely complement to the watch’s 14.85mm high casing.

International movie star

The black sandwich-dial, with Arabic numerals at 3, 6 and 12 o’clock respectively, corresponds to the design of the original version, which had been developed for the Italian navy by Guido Panerai before the Second World War. The calfskin strap is closed with a polished steel pin buckle. The movement of the PANERAI PAM 111 was tested and certified for precision by C.O.S.C.. This model was made famous in 1996 when actor Sylvester Stallone was seen with this exact watch in the movie “Daylight”.
