Introducing The Panerai Luminor Marina 44mm (PAM01313)
There are a modest bunch of watch plans that are quickly and undeniably conspicuous from across a room. In the event that a watch brand is adequately fortunate to have one of these, a great deal of the difficult work is now done. The Panerai Luminor is without question one of these plans. The watch the vast majority will in general consider when they hear the name Panerai and perhaps hear the words “larger than average watch.” Panerai is, all things considered, credited with commencing the huge watch pattern that began in the last part of the 1990s and proceeded through a large part of the Aughts. Despite the fact that the “I” word truly gets thrown around awfully regularly in watch audits, and I attempt to keep it out of my own however much I can, the Panerai Luminor is a truly notable watch and I’ve come to see it as a real plan object.
While you’ve presumably seen the above exemplary shape ordinarily previously, you may get the feeling that you’ve seen this specific model covered on HODINKEE. That is on the grounds that this Luminor Marina appears to be like a Goldtech Luminor Marina that we covered during the virtual Watches & Wonders show toward the finish of April. The two watches have a glossy silk completed blue dial that grants a rich, dressy quality that helps me a piece to remember the thin for-Panerai Luminor Due. (I know many individuals totally love the refined look of the Due, however some have experienced issues moving beyond its lower water obstruction rating.) Not to stress here. Notwithstanding its exquisite dial and blue croc tie, PAM01313 is each piece a spec’d-out apparatus watch, directly down to its screwed back and 300-meter profundity rating.
PAM01313 is a rich interpretation of the Luminor Marina – separated from the Luminor Base by the presence of its little seconds at the nine o’clock position. We’ve seen many new Luminor Marina models this year, and some of them have been genuinely sudden. Recollect the lume-weighty models declared in titanium, Carbotec, and Fibratech? Those watches consolidated lume on their cases.
I like the blue satiné soleil dial of this model a considerable amount, and I believe that this is really the victor when you compare it to the previously mentioned Luminor Marina in Goldtech. The plan feels exceptionally close, and the tones and surface finishings function admirably together. Except for the cleaned bezel, the case is brushed to a matte completion, and I love the delightful way it diverges from the energetic sandwich dial. The date window at three o’clock will have its doubters, I’m certain, however I appreciate its overall inconspicuousness and coordinating blue foundation for the white numerals. It likewise gives a pleasant equilibrium to the nine o’clock numeral and little seconds on the opposite side of the dial.
The PAM01313 has a quality in-house programmed development with a more-than-sufficient three days of force hold. On the off chance that you’ve been enticed by the slimmer Luminor Due yet have experienced issues tolerating its lower profundity rating, this could be a decent watch to look at. It brings the refined stylish that characterized the Due to the table – however not the slimness; this person is a full 15.65mm thick – while remaining consistent with what many figure a Panerai should be.
