Thought through to the last detail and in keeping with the grand company tradition, the Florentine watch manufacturer PANERAI reinterpreted many elements of Italian marine divers watches when creating the Luminor 1950 Chrono Monopulsante Left-Handed 8 Days Titanio PAM 579. Technical perfection in combination with the most modern manufacturing methods and high quality materials have created something truly special: a modern divers watch for left-handed people, collectors and for anyone who prefers wearing their watch on their right wrist.
Watches like this one have made PANERAI a cult brand. Swiss fine watch technology and innovative Italian design turned the PANERAI Luminor 1950 Chrono Monopulsante Left-Handed 8 Days Titanio into one of the few watches for left handed people. A proper divers watch, the PANERAI PAM 579 is watertight up to 100 meters.
The hand-wound PANERAI Luminor 1950 Chrono Monopulsante Left-Handed 8 Days Titano with the reference number PAM 579 has a mechanical movement. Calibre P 2004/9 consists of 329 parts and contains a Glucydur® balance wheel, a KIF-Parechoc® shock absorption, three spring barrels and a column wheel. The movement with a power reserve of eight days is contained in a 47mm casing. It can be watched through the casing floor made from sapphire glass. The casing is made from titanium, which ensures the PANERAI PAM 579 hypoallergenic. Despite its size, the PAM 579 is not only lightweight, but also made for the long term as the titanium is corrosion resistant even in sea water.
The 2 mm thick and rounded watch glass is non-reflective and made from sapphire glass which guarantees excellent readability. The dial of the Panerai Luminor 1950 Chrono Monopulsante Left-Handed 8 Days Titano has a very special design. It consists of two dial disks stacked upon each other. Between the two layers fluorescent material has been placed which is visible through the numbers and indexes cut into the upper disk. The hands are also covered in a material which shines at night. The placement of winding crown and crown protection bridge catches the eye on the left side of the casing, which reflects the method used in the 1950s on the historic models to make sure that Italian marine divers did not have to wear all the important instruments on their left arm.
Only the titanium button for the chronograph function is placed on the right hand side of the case at 2 o’clock. The clear dial shows on the outside the minute ring where even the quarter second can be read exactly. At 3 o’clock is the little second, at 9 o’clock the minute counter. Nothing distracts from the essential; the brown dial is extremely easy to read. The PANERAI Luminor 1950 Chrono Monopulsante and its historically influenced design of clear factuality is easily recognised and will not go unnoticed on any wrist. Its limited edition makes it interesting for watch collectors as well.
