Panerai Luminor Marina 44mm PAM01313 Blue Dial Watch

2020 is the year of Luminor and there is a new Luminor Marina in the family. it has a blue color, which is undoubtedly one of the most popular colors in watchmaking. It should be noted that this is not Panerai’s first blue dial. The brand already has a large number of Luminor and Radiomir watches with blue dials. But there’s a lot more going on with the new Luminor Marina 44mm PAM01313, making it one of Paneristis’ most talked about watches in a long time.
In many ways, the new Panerai Luminor Marina 44mm PAM01313 Blue Dial Watch  PAM01313 is the foundation of the brand. It’s a simple and practical tool watch. This 44mm case features the classic lines of the Panerai Luminor 1950 case, with a satin-brushed finish and polished bezel. It has 24mm lugs and Panerai’s quick-release strap change system. The sturdy screw-down caseback is water-resistant to 300 meters.


The dial is where most of the magic happens. The highlight is obviously the color, which is a bright satin blue. Most importantly, it has a more conventional or more controversial white luminescence. As you will see, for Panerai’s recent releases, there has been a general dissatisfaction that they have an artificial, old-fashioned luminescent material. Some call it “fautina” while Panerai calls it “ecru”; in any case, the idea is to replicate the look of the luminescent markers found in vintage watches. As much as I like it, I can understand why some would find it phony.
The rest of the dial is classic Panerai. Since it’s a replica Panerai watches, 9 o’clock is only a few seconds away. The well-balanced date window can be balanced at 3 o’clock. The dial shows “Luminor Marina” at 12 o’clock and “Panerai Automatic” at 6 o’clock. In most cases, this would be considered a fairly clean dial. But I can definitely see some “Christina” offending me with the word “automatic”. The watch also has sterling silver hour, minute and second hands. No madness, no illusions.


Inside beats Panera’s Calibre P.9010. The P.9010 movement was introduced in 2016 and is the successor to the P.9000. It has a number of key improvements, most notably a reduced height, from 7.9mm to 6mm. it also has a balanced bridge, rather than a balanced screw plug. It pulses at 4Hz and has a 72 hour power reserve. A neat feature is that it has an independently adjustable hour hand. Unfortunately, the sturdy screw-down bottom cover prevents the owner from appreciating the movement.
Like I said, this is a Panerai back to basics. Panerai launched the Calibre P.9010 and updated long-time favourites (such as the Luminor Marina PAM0312 and PAM0359) with some controversial changes such as the blue seconds hand and a much lower water-resistance rating, which caused a lot of “Christian! “The discomfort. This new Luminor Marina PAM01313 isn’t perfect, but it corrects those mistakes.

The Complete Panerai Buying Guide

Panerai’s story begins in the 19th century in Florence, Italy, where Giovanni Panerai opened his eponymous shop and watchmaking school. One of the brand’s first innovations was the Radiomir, a heavy-duty water-resistant timepiece with an illuminated dial designed for the Royal Italian Navy. Over the years, Radiomir evolved and Panerai developed various models within the Radiomir collection. Panerai has recently started manufacturing operations in Switzerland and prides itself on combining Italian design with traditional Swiss watchmaking techniques.

Like many companies trapped in fascist countries, Panerai developed watches for the wrong side during the Second World War, but Mussolini’s dictatorship and financial resources prompted Panerai to innovate quickly. They developed the Perspex crystal (1936), the huge luminous sandwich dial (1938), one-piece lugs with spring bars (1940), and a movement with an eight-day power reserve to reduce wear on the crown seals (also 1940). After the fall of the Fascists, Panerai developed the famous called-based luminous device Luminor (1949) and the iconic lever-actuated crown lock (1950).

It was not until 1993 that Panerai’s watches became widely available to a wide audience and attracted the approval of Sylvester Stallone. By 1997, Panerai had become so successful that the Vendome Group (later Richemont) bought the company, moved production to Switzerland, and transformed Panerai into the luxury sports watch company we know today.

It took some time for Panerai to move away from Sly’s Rocky / Rambo Brave legend and tell its story more directly, but once it did, the company offered a subtle form of badassery, all about ocean-going adventures. Italy is almost entirely coastal, and its navy is known for its innovative maritime technology. That’s where Panerai makes dive watches, gauges and compasses for these deep-sea pioneers. At the same time, the company maintains a close relationship with yacht racing, including vintage wooden yachts.
