Panerai celebrates the 70th anniversary of its trademarked glow-in-the-dark substance, Luminor, with a collection of new watches. One of those watches in the collection sees a highly technical take on 44mm Marina dive watch.
Named the Luminor Marina CarbotechTM (PAM1118), the watch comes crafted in thin layers of carbon fiber (7 layers per millimeter) that are fused together under high-pressure temperature-controlled conditions — making the watch lightweight and resilient to corrosion. Powering the watch is P.9010 movement that features twin spring barrels which allow for three days of power reserve.
In keeping with Luminor’s 70th anniversary, a new generation of “X1” lume has been applied throughout the watch. Lume makes its way on the hands, the circumference of the dial, hour markers, seconds subdial, the signature locking lever, and even on the stitching on the strap.
Limited to 270 pieces, look for the Luminor Marina CarbotechTM watch to drop exclusively at Panerai boutiques later this year.
