Panerai Luminor Marina - 42mm
The Luminor case was created in 1993 for the first collection of Panerai watches developed specifically for the civilian public. Its simple forms and their links with tradition are the basis for the enormous worldwide success of Officine Panerai far beyond the circle of enthusiasts and collectors who, even before 1993, knew and appreciated the unique character of the watches produced by the Italian brand.
Inspired by the historic Luminor 1950 case created for the underwater commandos of the Italian Navy, the Luminor reinterprets these classic proportions in a contemporary manner, preserving all the characteristics which over the years have made this watch an icon of luxury sports watchmaking. Its unique and imposing forms have a strongly masculine character and unequalled robustness.
The lugs are formed from the same block of metal as the case and their design merges perfectly with the shape of the wristwatch. As in the Luminor 1950, the most prominent element is the crown protecting device which ensures the excellent water-resistance of the case.

Founded in Florence in 1860 as a workshop, shop and school of watch-making for many decades Panerai supplied the Italian Navy specialist diving corps with precision instruments. Originally created to be used deep underwater, Panerai watches are known for their unparalleled legibility and luminosity in the dark. In 1977, the brand was acquired by the Richemont Group and launched on the international market. Today Panerai develops and crafts its movements and watches at its Neuchatel manufacture, combining Italian design flair and history with Swiss horological expertise.
