Hands on with the Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 3-days PAM00422
Who might have thought that when Panerai delivered the Luminor Marina 1950 PAM127 in 2002, it would become such an incredible popular watch. In spite of the fact that it wasn’t Panerai’s initial 47 mm watch, it sure stunned many watch collectors.
And fortunate for the individuals who don’t have $20k for a pre-owned exceptional version from 2002, Panerai has delivered a watch that perhaps looks better compared to the first. The Luminor Marina 1950 PAM422 with the in-house 3-days development type P.3001.
The Luminor Marina 1950 3-days, or short PAM422, likewise quantifies 47 mm in breadth and has a comparable domed sapphire precious stone that gives the PAM422 (and a few other Panerai models) an incredible vintage look.
Personally I additionally love they utilized creme-hued glowing paint for all markers and hands. The creme shading adds a ton to the vintage look, yet the brilliant paint, applied on a plate underneath the dial, works obviously superior to the matured tritium it ought to take after. The dial is Panerai’s well known sandwich dial, which means the markers (at consistently and four stripes around the seconds hand) are removed of the dial, so the brilliant paint can be seen through.
Other ‘vintage’ subtleties are the engraved content on the dial and the model reference is engraved working on it at six o’clock. Another vintage plan component that totally satisfies me, are the gold hands. The ‘vintage’ lash makes the vintage look of the Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 3-Days complete.
The 47 mm PAM00422 has a force hold on the back, showing the amount of the 72 hours of force is left in the two origin barrels. Calibre P.3001 type is an enormous and vigorous manual breeze development, showing hours, minutes, seconds and the force hold on the rear of the development. It likewise includes a seconds reset work, that makes it simple to set the time exact to the second.
Caliber P.3001 has two enormous extensions that together cover in any event three-quarter of the development. The Glucydur balance is held set up by an equilibrium connect; this gives more sturdiness than an equilibrium rooster that is just fixed on one side.
No word on the cost at this point, yet it’s restricted to only 2,000 pieces!
Its size of 47 mm in breadth can (nearly) be viewed as ordinary these days yet it was unquestionably HUGE when Panerai dispatched the scandalous Luminor Marina 1950 PAM127 a.k.a Fiddy. Also, I surmise I don’t need to examine the very notable (and licensed) crown ensuring gadget. Altogether a delightful new delivery from Panerai, combining the most wanted looks (PAM127 plan components and size) and the 3-days in-house development, type P.3001.
