PANERAI have incorporated the new manually-wound manufacturer calibre P.5000 with eight-day power reserve into the Luminor Marina 8 Days Acciaio. The movement features 21 jewels, 15¾ lignes, and beats at a rate of 21,600 oscillations per hour. The movement consists of 127 components in total. Hours, minutes and small seconds are located at the 9 o’clock position. The PAM 590 is a robust companion thanks to use of KIF Parechoc® impact protection.
The brown “Assolutamente“ calfskin strap is also highly popular. In terms of colour, this goes perfectly with the Luminova luminous material on the dial. This gives the PAM00590 its “vintage look”. Paneristi all over the world love these properties. Above all the “8 Giorni Brevettato“ lettering. This was applied to PANERAI vintage models as early as WWII. Back then, Guido Panerai used an Angelus manually-wound mechanism, also with an eight-day power reserve. This means the PANERAI Luminor Marina 8 Days Acciaio PAM 590 has historic forefathers.
Anyone who loves historic OFFICINE PANERAI timepieces will appreciate the timeless elegance of these sturdy watches. Therefore, the PAM 590 features a steel caseback. This is engraved with a torpedo. These made it possible for Italian marine divers to take allied ships out of action very precisely in the Second World War. This second military weapon was significantly more effective as firing conventional torpedoes of the time was much less precise, and they frequently missed their target.
The PAM 590 is watertight up to 300 meters. Thanks to the crown protection bracket, the winding crown is also firmly watertight. However, it is still possible to adjust the time quickly and easily. The main advantage of the Luminor Marina 8 Days Acciaio is clearly the manually-wound calibre P.5000. This means the movement only needs to be wound once a week. PANERAI produces this movement in their own manufacturing facility in Neuchâtel and La Chaux de Fonts. Anyone looking for a timeless design will take great pleasure in the PAM 590.
