Panerai Luminor Marina 8 Days: Officine Close Up

P1050566
This week Officine Panerai Luminor Marina 8 Days was unveiled, and Haute Time got an exclusive look. Created exclusively for the North American market, this new timepiece is a great example of Panerai’s signature big-case style.

This 44mm model features a case and bezel in polished steel. The crown and the device protecting the crown (a Panerai trademark) are in brushed Type AISI 316L steel, providing a nice contrast with the high-shine case.

The screw-down brushed steel caseback features an engraving of a Siluro a Lenta Corsa, the stealth torpedos used by the commandos of the Italian Navy in underwater missions.

The minimalist black dial features luminous Arabic numerals and hour markers, and the inscription 8 GIORNI BREVETTATO (Italian for ‘8 Days Patented’) at 3 o’clock. Functions include hours and minutes, as well as small seconds at 9 o’clock (a features found on all Luminor Marina models).

The Luminor Marina 8 Days’ 192-hour (or 8 days) power reserve is guaranteed by the P.5000 hand-wound mechanical movement at the heart of this model. The P.5000 calibre, which is comprised of 127 components, was designed and manufactured in-house by Panerai. This calibre features a KIF® Parechoc anti-shock device and two barrels.

True to Panerai’s navy heritage, the Luminor Marina 8 Days is water resistant to 30 bar, a depth of about 300 meters. The water-resistance is ensured by the case’s Type AISI 316L stainless steel, as this steel alloy is particularly resistant to corrosion. Panerai’s iconic bridge device also features a lever that exerts pressure on the winding crown to improve water-resistance and to protect it from accidental shocks.

The Luminor Marina 8 Days, which is known as reference PAM00590, is fitted with a brown strap of natural untreated leather, and it is supplied with a spare strap and a steel screwdriver.
