Introduced in 1993, the Luminor Marina paid tribute to the original models from Officine Panerai – then known as G. Panerai & Figlio – that had debuted over 50 years earlier. In those early days, Panerai’s iconic designs were driven by the practical, utilitarian needs of the Italian Navy’s special forces commandos. A bright, long-lasting lumination for underwater viewing, excellent water resistance, and of course, the unique crown-protecting device that makes Panerai watches unmistakable, even at a distance. Bringing these pragmatic design elements into a modern watch and making it available to the public, Panerai set the stage for the success and renown it enjoys today.
Built with a 44mm titanium case, the Luminor Marina features classic styling and components. A polished titanium bezel surrounds the domed sapphire crystal which provides readability at any angle while the Luminor application (from which the original model derived its name) lights up the indices, numerals, and polished rose gold hands with unparalleled brightness. An exhibition caseback shows off the 28-jewel P9000 movement which offers Panerai’s famous 72 hour power reserve. Finishing off the piece is a tobacco colored crocodile leather strap, topped by a heavy-duty titanium buckle. Limited to just 1,500 pieces, the PAM351 is truly a special watch.
This piece is in good pre-owned condition, showing slight surface scratches on the bezel. The original strap shows signs of wear both on the inside and outside. Does not include original box/papers. See photos! Comes with our Feldmar Watch Company Certified Pre-Owned 2 Year Warranty.
