In Depth

The Luminor 1950 Chrono Monopulsante 8 Days GMT Titanio (PAM00737) has a brushed titanium case 44 mm in diameter with the classic bridge lever device, patented by Panerai in the 1950s, to protect the winding crown and to help ensure the water-resistance of the watch (10 bar, a depth of about 100 metres). The bezel has a polished finish and on the caseband at 8 o’clock is the push-button which controls the start, stop, and reset operations of this chronograph with its many functions and advanced technical features. The dial is easy to read and it clearly displays the indications of the functions of the hand-wound P.2004 calibre with a power reserve of eight days, achieved by having three spring barrels in series. The linear power reserve indicator is at 6 o’clock, while the seconds counter and am/pm indication relating to the central second time zone hand is positioned at 9 o’clock. The minutes of the chronograph are measured by the small counter at 3 o’clock and there is a central seconds hand. All the hands, apart from the GMT function, are gilded and they coordinate harmoniously with the beige markers on the green sandwich dial. The P.2004 calibre, entirely developed and realised in the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, employs high-end technical solutions such as the column wheel, visible through the sapphire crystal porthole in the back of the movement, and the vertical clutch. The chronograph minute hand moves in jumps, making it easier to read, and the watch can be synchronised with great accuracy thanks to the device which stops the balance wheel and zeroes the seconds hand when the winding crown is pulled out to make the relevant adjustment. The Luminor 1950 Chrono Monopulsante 8 Days GMT Titanio is presented in an elegant green cherry wood box. Inside the box are a replacement black rubber strap, the tool for replacing it and a screwdriver.

Maintenance

Panerai watches are produced to very high standards of quality. It is worth remembering that the mechanical parts run 24 hours a day when used, so the watch must undergo regular maintenance to ensure long life and good operation.

WATER-RESISTANCE 

Have watch checked periodically for water-resistance by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre and renovate it every two years with regular servicing, or whenever the watch has to be opened. The restoration of water-resistance necessarily involves replacing the seals in order to ensure the maximum water resistance and protection. Where the watch is used in underwater sports activities, it is recommended that it should be checked every year before the underwater activities begin.  

THE MOVEMENT 

Have the movement of watch checked periodically by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre in order to preserve its perfect operation. If the watch has a tendency to gain or lose time to a significant degree, the movement may need to be overhauled. The movements are designed to withstand temperature variations between -10°C and +60°C (14°F and 140°F). Outside this range of temperatures, operational variations exceeding those set out in the specifications of the movement may be noticed. In addition, there is a risk that the lubricants contained in the movement may deteriorate, resulting in damage to some of its parts.  

CLEANING THE EXTERIOR

To keep the exterior in perfect condition, we recommend washing Panerai watch with soap and warm water, using a soft brush. After this operation, and also after immersion in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the watch with fresh water. All Panerai watches can be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth. 

THE STRAP

 Panerai straps must be washed in warm water and left to dry. It is important not to dry them on a hot surface or expose them to direct sunlight, because the rapid evaporation of the water could damage their shape and quality. After each immersion in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the strap with fresh water. It is recommended that the strap and the buckle should be replaced by an Authorized Distributor or a Panerai Service Centre, in order to avoid any problems caused by incorrect replacement. Only an Authorized Distributor or Panerai Service Centre can guarantee the use of genuine Panerai straps, properly designed to fit the dimensions of the case and manufactured according to the quality standards of the brand. All alligator leather used by Officine Panerai comes from farms in Louisiana, USA. Officine Panerai’s suppliers have committed to the highest standard of responsibility and have given their assurance that such farms in Louisiana contribute to the stable growth of wild alligators, thus protecting this endangered species. Panerai does not use leather coming from endangered species taken from the wild.
