A Classic By Panerai: Luminor Marina

The case of Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic Composite – 44 mm watch and the bridge protector protecting the winding crown are made of brown Panerai Composite material Panerai Composite ?, equipped with Panerai P.9000 automatic winding movement. Re-present the brand’s unique performance and style.
Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic Composite-44 mm, PAM00386, Panerai Composite case in brown Panerai, 44 mm in diameter, hours, minutes, small seconds, date, smoky grey translucent sapphire crystal, waterproof 300 m, engraved Leather strap with PANERAI logo and large Panerai Composite? Buckle. Includes a stainless steel screwdriver and a spare strap.
The material first adopted by Panerai on high-end watches is an artificial ceramic produced by electro-chemical ceramics of aluminum. Its characteristics are lighter than ceramics, but harder and more durable than steel. The surface effect is like frosting, which is extremely different in appearance.
The rustic brown large dial adopts a ‘sandwich’ sandwich structure, sandwiching the middle layer coated with powerful luminous Super-LumiNova? With two identical dials, showing the fluorescent numbers and hour scales. The thickness and superb night legibility of the watch reflect the typical Panerai style. The mirror is made of anti-reflective sapphire crystal. Through the smoky gray sapphire crystal on the bottom of the case, you can admire the P.9000 automatic mechanical movement equipped with this watch. The P.9000 has a diameter of 13? Centimeters and a thickness of 7.9 mm. It is a self-made movement designed and manufactured by Panerai’s factory in Neuchatel, Switzerland. The movement also has date performance. The small seconds dial is set at nine o’clock, and it has a three-day power reserve provided by two barrels connected in series and a two-way automatic winding balance. Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic Composite – 44 mm water-resistant to 30 bar (approx. 300 meters). The watch comes with an old brushed dark brown leather strap with the same color Panerai Composite? Buckle. Model PAM00386 is a member of the Contemporary Collection.

Features and performance
材质 PaneraiComposite is harder and lighter than the ceramics (zirconia, ZrO2) commonly used in watchmaking industry for watch cases. Its hardness is even higher than that of aluminum, steel and titanium. These characteristics make the PaneraiComposite material the best material for the watch case. In addition to ensuring the best wearing comfort and beautiful appearance (can be synthesized into various colors), it also has impact resistance, scratch resistance and high temperature resistance. PaneraiComposite material also has extremely high ductility, can be made into a variety of geometries, and can also be complex processed. At the same time, its inertia does not change its structure or appearance over time.
Ceramic process
The aluminum material is ceramicized to synthesize the PaneraiComposite material, which is different from any other process currently used in the watchmaking industry. The traditional coating process is to attach ceramic dust to the metal surface, but this will only cover the top surface. When synthesizing the PaneraiComposite material, the aluminum case is immersed in a chemical liquid tank. Under the action of conductive liquid and generating extremely high temperature (up to 10,000 ° C) electrical energy, the aluminum material undergoes an electrochemical process. This process can completely change its structure, but retain its original geometry intact. The effectiveness of this process depends on factors such as the solution used, the immersion time, the material being processed and the shape of the component. Before assembly, each case is also surface-treated and undergoes a series of tests to ensure its aesthetic and technical attributes. After many processes, we get this extremely homogeneous, solid, matte and soft-touch material. The entire ceramicization process is fully environmentally friendly: the only processing residue is hydrogen, and in fact it is separated out during the integration of oxygen molecules with the watch case.
