The charm of Panerai
Looking on the past, the military years on turmoil are like a flash of shutter, as it happened yesterday. As long as you follow the hand, even if the time is like a shuttle, the solemnity of the Royal Italian Navy will immediately reappear above the wrist. This is the charm of the Luminor Marina 1950 series, which cherishes the classics and guards the deep and eternal of Panerai. While looking to the future and moving towards better.
As one of the representative series of Panerai, the Luminor Marina series has lived up to expectations. It was famous in the 1990s, and the charm of the new style in 2016 is not reduced. In addition to its loyalty to the Luminor 1950 series case and the Panerai iconic crown guard, the watch’s dimensional proportions, materials and creative dial design are unique. The size of the new movement is slimmer and lighter than the existing models in the same series, but the outstanding features and technical specifications are consistent.

The Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 series adopts the P.9010 self-winding mechanical movement independently developed by the Panerai Noble Watch Factory. Its exquisiteness once again reflects the exquisite craftsmanship and perseverance of the Panerai artisans.
