Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic 38mm watches

It’s a well-known fact that Panerai watches have always been popular, both in terms of practicality and style – from the first 47mm prototypes used by frogmen in the Italian Royal Navy in the late 1930s, to the 44mm ‘Vendome Forewind’ reference 5218 Luminor worn by Sylvester Stallone in his 1996 film Daylight, a move that catapulted Panerai onto the international scene and ultimately cemented the outsize aesthetic as an emerging trend of the last decade.
If it were the size of a Rolls-Royce Phantom, would the Mini Cooper still be an icon? What if the Walkman never fits in my back pocket? Conversely, would Luminor, the benchmark of Italian minimalist design and perhaps the foremost advocate of the “big watch” trend of the last decade, maintain a similar reputation if it were nearly 25% smaller? It’s hard to say, but Panerai is willing to gamble on it, as SIHH has introduced the Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic in a new 38mm case.


Not surprisingly, maintaining a huge legacy Panerai Luminor Automatic 38mm also means that Panerai has been the slowest to reverse its own trends and adapt to market tastes that have been quietly moving towards smaller, more traditional sizes, which has been the hallmark display cycle of recent editions of Baselworld and SIHH. But a change is afoot at Neuchâtel, and the brand seems to be trying to broaden its appeal by introducing smaller 42 or 40mm pieces in almost every available collection. Even the usually heavier Submersible is now a very popular 42mm in diameter, which is a worthy second look for those who once considered the Panerai a one-wrist wonder.
For the same reason, the 38mm Due is a popular product, and also a long overdue addition to the range – not least because there will always be a large number of watch lovers who love the Panerai aesthetic, but the wide range of cases allows them to wear only the big wrists. Likewise, the Luminor’s thin bezel and wide dial aperture don’t help the wrist feel much larger than the specifications suggest. So while the 38mm Due is the smallest watch Panerai has ever produced, it’s much closer to a traditional 40mm sports watch, ironically the nail in the coffin of the ‘big watch trend’ as the brand has become the other pole of the industry’s popularity spectrum.


As of 2018, Panerai no longer relies on the ETA-based movements it has deployed in the past, and the 38mm Due is no exception, utilizing Panerai’s new in-house manufactured OP XXXIV – a newly developed automatic movement that hums at 21,600 bph and has a three-day power reserve. But like all good things, the 38mm Luminor Due comes with a warning: despite the case being 11mm thick, it’s only water resistant to 30mm. The watch has a closed back.

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.

Panerai – Luminor Blu Mare 44 mm PAM01085

As an innovative watchmaking company, Panerai is known for designing watches that combine traditional art with modern technology. As a result, its soft and distinctive aesthetics are very popular. The Panerai Luminor and Panerai Radiomir are the best examples of their highly acclaimed watch designs!
Following the launch of the self-winding Luminor Marina PAM 01313 with a blue dial last June, Panerai now presents the hand-wound Luminor Blu Mare 44mm PAM01085. The “Blu Mare” (meaning (“Blue Sea”) Italian name clearly indicates the brand’s maritime heritage.
The 44mm x 13.05mm case is made of replica Panerai watches AISI 316L steel and features a patented crown protector reminiscent of the famous Panerai models of the 1990s.
The dial is protected by a sapphire crystal and decorated with a sardine motif, while the hour and minute hands are rhodium-coated. The fonts used for the numerals at the base of the dial are a further reference to late 20th century models. They have been etched like a linear refractive index and then filled with green Super-LumiNova to ensure greater clarity and longer readability in low light conditions.

The twelve-sided brushed steel caseback hides the in-house produced P.6000 movement, which replaces the old Unitas-based OP XI movement. The hand-wound movement beats at a frequency of 3 Hz (21,600 vibrations per hour) and offers a three-day power best replica watch pro forum reserve, thanks to the double-bridge support regulator and the Incabloc shock-absorbing device, which makes this movement particularly robust.
The new Luminor Blu Mare 44 mm water-resistant material, which can withstand pressures of up to 10 bar (approx. 100 metres / 330 feet), is made from a blue calfskin strap with beige stitching and fastened with a pin buckle made of brushed steel. Traditionally, the strap is fixed to the lugs by means of a Panerai screw system.

TO KNOW ABOUT PANERAI

Today, Panerai is one of the unique and instantly recognizable brands that many people love, especially those whose wrists are large enough to accommodate a wide range of different sizes. Picking off the usually sturdy case of the brand. Any self-respecting watch nerd knows its iconic Luminor and Radiomir models, but with the brand in Many stories of success and struggle from a long and sometimes troubled history are often little known.
In addition to the general design, complexity and finishing of the movement, ask a watch enthusiast what he wants in a quality watch, and Normally, the use of luminous, illuminated materials for hands and indexes would be an exception to this rule. Today, Panerai is at the forefront of watchmaking.

Following the discovery of radium by Pierre and Marie Curie in 1898, Panerai has been at the forefront of the watchmaking industry since then. went out of its way to find a way to use this self-luminous material as part of its military instrumentation, which was its business at the time The heart of the matter. In 1916, Radiomir’s patent application was successful. A paint/paste made from a mixture of radium bromide, zinc sulfide and mesothelium with excellent low light visibility and strong underwater bonding. Little did they know at the time how much of an impact this development would eventually have on the entire watchmaking world.
Back in Panerai’s day, Panerai did not have the resources or the drive to produce its own movements. Giovanni Panerai and his son, Leon Francesco, originally started in 1860. Established in Florence as a watch retail and repair shop. He saw an opportunity to diversify into using Swiss suppliers to design his own watches (Rolex being one of them). The brand then moved into the fields of mechanical engineering and instrument production.

By the beginning of the 20th century, the brand was run by Giovanni’s grandson (Guido Panerai & Figlio) and later became a supplier of musical instruments to the Royal Italian Navy, and with the advent of the Second World War, Rolex had come up with the idea of a waterproof watch case for the Panerai and began to produce watches suited to the Navy’s needs.

As a result of their aforementioned development of the luminous Radiomir material, in 1936 the Royal Italian Navy frogmen were given the first Radiomir watch, a 47mm watch powered by a Rolex hand-wound movement with a bright luminous index that could be read during underwater missions.
From a more modern perspective, one of Panerai’s most groundbreaking innovations to date is the Panerai Lab-ID In the form of the Luminor 1950 Carbotech, the model was unveiled at SIHH in 2017. In recent years, we have seen many brands using new materials to replace in order to extend the spread of watch movements (especially silicon) Lifetime, but thanks to the combination of carbon, tantalum-based ceramics and a range of proprietary coatings, Panerai has created P.3001/C The movement, being unlubricated, is guaranteed to go 50 years without repair.

That’s no easy task and we’d really like to know how much these watches cost as the first few decades come and go. Note also that by designing the movement, the brand can effectively eliminate its dependence best replica watch pro forum on the movement, and with the exception of four of the movement’s Key points aside, all other key points are no longer regular jewelry, which plays a key role in avoiding frequent repairs.

First Look: Panerai Luminor Marina Fibratech 44 PAM01663 debuts new fibre material

For 2020, Panerai is debuting not the Luminor Marina 44 format, but two new materials. The Panerai Luminor Marina Fibratech 44 PAM01663 makes its debut in a case made of mineral fibers fused from basaltic rock. Yes, you read that right.
Brand: Panerai
Model: Luminor Marina Fibratech 44 PAM01663
Size: 44mm wide, 15.65mm thick
Water resistance: 30 bar (300 m)
Case material: DMLS titanium case, Carbotech bezel, crown and tie rods
Crystals/lenses: sapphire crystals obtained from corundum
Movement: Panerai P.9010, 200 parts
Frequency 4Hz
Power reserve: 3 days
Strap/bracelet: Panerai Sportech, additional rubber strap

As Panerai explains, Fibratech is “made of unidirectional mineral fibers produced by the fusion of basaltic rocks. These fibers bonded to the polymer become thin layers that are superimposed in precise directions and then cemented by a process of pressure and temperature control.” How the watch feels on the wrist has yet to be determined by a “wrist time” assessment.

The brand seems excited about this high-tech discovery and could be the next Panerai Fibratech watch. The Luminor Marina FibratechTM (PAM01663) was apparently one of the first products to be introduced. This is interesting because, as a rule, the high-tech materials used in the large luxury watch industry are still components reserved for “halo pieces” best replica watch pro forum rather than materials designed for long-term, serious production, even if the latter are actually used to truly prove the value of innovation rather than the lofty claims made in press releases. Here’s hoping for more Panerai works using proprietary materials.


Panerai has demonstrated the ability to put more novel parts into more conventional production, and the Panerai Luminor Marina Fibratech 44 PAM01663 is a good example. The bezel is made of Carbotech, a multi-layered carbon composite that the brand has been using on the exterior of its watches in recent years. This time, Carbotech was also used as a joystick for the top bridge – certainly a clean touch.
Sandwiched between the gradient blue dial, which is all the rage these days, and the microblasted titanium back, the Panerai Calibre P.9010 offers a three-day power reserve, supplemented by a self-winding rotor. The operating frequency to match this extended power reserve is the modern 4 Hz rate, which makes the 72 hour reserve even more impressive.
