The PANERAI Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic Acciaio PAM 359 truly reflects this Italian company’s expertise and experience. Alongside the superior reliability, waterproofing and optics we have come to expect, two extra features have been added: a new dial, and the Panerai P.9000 calibre movement with 197 components. This is the new standard movement for Luminor 1950 Marina models and thus now features in the PANERAI Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic.
PANERAI’s PAM 359 uses the PANERAI P.9000 calibre automatic mechanical movement – an entirely in-house movement developed by PANERAI in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. Available functions on offer in the PANERAI PAM 359 range from a date display to hours, minutes and small seconds. The Luminor Marina 1950’s 44mm diameter case-housing is made from polished AISI 316L stainless steel. This material is hypoallergenic, extremely corrosion-resistant, and thus particularly suitable for wearing next to the skin.
As befits a high-quality timepiece, the PANERAI PAM 359 has a polished steel bezel and also a transparent sapphire crystal caseback, which permits an unobstructed view of the exquisite P.9000 calibre movement. Its dial features fluorescent Arabic numerals and hour markings.
Like the PANERAI models developed for the Italian navy, this watch has a black sandwich dial. The date is read at the 3 o'clock position, with seconds at 9 o'clock position, and a 2.6mm thick anti-glare watch-glass guarantees optimal readability, even under difficult light conditions. The Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic is also water-resistant to 300 meters (30 bar).
The Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic PAM 359 belongs to PANERAI’s Contemporary Collection and comes with a leather strap measuring 24/22mm (width) and 115/75mm (length), complete with a classic satin-steel buckle. Owners also receive a second interchangeable strap and strap-replacement tools. Elegant, sophisticated, and offering a fascinating view of its movement, this truly is a watch to fall in love with!
