Luminor Marina Watches
Panerai is one of the oldest wristwatch making brands and it has been existing since 1936. The brand became more popular in 1950 with the manufacture of some elegant Panerai Luminor 1950 watches. What really boosted its popularity is the fact the brand supplied watches to the Italian Navy for about a decade.
The most important and distinctive feature of Panerai Luminor Marina watches is their level of water resistance. You can take them deep down the ocean and that is why they are called divers’ watches. Another quality that sets the collection of watches apart from the others is that the hour markers, the hour and minute hands all glow in the dark. Hence, you can check the time in the dark on all Luminor 1950 watches. Here are the other features of the brand.
They usually have circular dials with huge power reserve. Their huge power reserve is why it was the official watch brand of the Italian Navy for many years. Their 44mm dials have Arabic numerals and sticks hour markers. Hour markers 12, 6, 9, and sometimes 3, are usually in Arabic numerals while the others are in sticks.
In addition, most of them also have a date window and one or more sub-dials. The second hand is not constant as not every Officine Panerai watch has a second hand. Another feature that is common among Luminor Marina watches is guarded crowns.
The case and bezel of Luminor Marina watches are usually made of polished steel and that makes them resistant to rust and corrosion.
Even though there are a few Panerai Luminor watches with a bracelet strap, most of them come with a high-quality leather strap that will last for years. Regardless of the material and color of their strap, the luxury watches are magnificent.
Luminor Marina watches price per piece ranges from about $4,000 to $20,000 and a very few models cost a little higher. Every Panerai watch offers quality, durability, and elegance. So, they don’t come cheap.
