Panerai Luminor Marina 8 Days Acciaio 44mm
THE POWER RESERVE OF EIGHT DAYS IS PART OF THE HISTORY OF OFFICINE PANERAI. Between the end of the 1940s and the early 1950s Panerai used a 16-ligne Angelus calibre which would run for eight days without being wound: a very long power reserve to meet the requirements of the commandos of the Italian Navy, who during their operations had to be able to rely on an instrument of complete and enduring reliability.This tradition lives again today with the P.5000 calibre, the new hand-wound movement with an eight-day power reserve which makes its debut in the new Luminor Marina 8 Days. The new timepiece respect the classic aesthetics of the Luminor Marina, notable for the minimalist design of the case and dial. The case is 44mm in diameter and it is immediately recognizable by the bridge device with locking lever to protect the winding crown and it is available in AISI 316L stainless steel. The P.5000 hand-wound mechanical calibre, visible through the sapphire crystal window set in the back, has been completely developed and made in the Officine Panerai manufacture at Neuchâtel. With a diameter of 15¾ lignes and a thickness of 4.5 mm, it is very robustly constructed. A large plate with brushed finish and diamond-polished chamfering almost completely conceals the mechanism, while revealing the variable inertia balance which oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour. The long running time is achieved by two spring barrels connected in series which store the power reserve of eight days. The Luminor Marina 8 Days (PAM00510) is part of the Luminor Collection and it is completed by a strap of black leather.
