THE LUMINOR MARINA 1950 3 DAYS AUTOMATIC – 44 MM HAS ALL THE ESSENTIAL CHARACTERISTICS OF A MODEL MADE ALMOST 20 YEARS AGO by Officine Panerai, maintaining all of its solidity, reliability and water-tightness, while adding two new elements that give the watch great character: the P.9000 in-house calibre and a new dial. The dial is black with the classic sandwich structure, guaranteeing exceptional visibility under all conditions. In place of the bar markers, eight tiny Arabic numerals have been engraved on the plate, while the classic large Arabic numerals are present at 12, 6 and 9 o’clock. The colour is also different: the luminescent material is used to coat the hour and minute hands while the small seconds hand, the date and the writing are ecru-coloured in a shade reminiscent of Panerai’s military models of the 1940s, the colour of which changed due to the natural ageing of the luminescent paste used at the time. From a technical viewpoint, the Luminor 1950 Marina 3 Days Automatic – 44 mm uses the P.9000 automatic movement, which was entirely designed and built at Officine Panerai’s Neuchâtel Manufacture. The case of the Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic measures 44mm in diameter and is made of polished stainless steel, contrasting with the brushed crown-protecting bridge device. The Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic – 44 mm is watertight to 30 bar (~300 metres) and the Panerai in-house movement can be admired through the sapphire crystal case-back.
The P.9000 calibre, created entirely by Officine Panerai and used in a series of Luminor 1950 and Radiomir models, is fitted with various functions: it is an automatic calibre with a 3-day power reserve and a unique technical design which makes these movements immediately recognizable. The calibre has a diameter of 13¾ lignes and numerous features: two barrels which guarantee 72 hours of power reserve; a single piece rotor which winds by moving in both directions thanks to an automatic ratchet device; a balance wheel with adjusting screws, oscillating at a frequency of 4 Hz. To house this movement, a specially made version of the Luminor 1950 case has been designed, keeping the proportions of the original but featuring a slightly less convex sapphire crystal which only barely protrudes from the bezel.
