THE LUMINOR MARINA 1950 3 DAYS AND THE LUMINOR 1950 3 DAYS POWER RESERVE EXPRESS THE EXCELLENT COMBINATION OF VINTAGE DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY WHICH MAKES PANERAI WATCHES UNIQUE. The special design of the Luminor 1950 case used by the two models is inspired by a rare, historic watch which is notable for the pronounced rounding of the cusps of the caseband. This detail recalls a stage of transformation, which took place in the 1940s, from the classic Radiomir cushion case to that of the Luminor. The Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days and the Luminor 1950 3 Days Power Reserve are both fitted with the new P.3001 and P.3002 manufacture calibres, which are distinguished from each other by the different ways in which the power reserves is indicated. In the P.3001 the power reserve indication is located on the bridge of the movement, and is therefore visible through the crystal on the back, while in the P.3002 the indicator appears on the dial. With a diameter of 16½ lignes, the two calibres have in common the typical structure of large bridges, two spring barrels giving a power reserve of three days and a balance wheel 13.2 mm in diameter with variable inertia, enabling the rate of the watch to be adjusted through external screws on the rim. Both also have the seconds zero reset device and a mechanism for the rapid adjustment of the hour, enabling the hour hand to jump one hour at a time, without interfering with the movement of the minute hand or the running of the watch.

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 your watch checked periodically for water-resistance by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre and restore it every two years with regular servicing, or whenever the watch has to be opened. Restoring the watch’s water-resistance necessarily involves replacing the seals so as to ensure the maximum water-resistance and security. Where the watch is used in underwater sports activities, it is recommended that it should be checked every year before the season of underwater activities begins.  

THE MOVEMENT 

Have the movement of your watch checked periodically by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre so as to maintain its perfect operation. If the watch tends to gain or lose time significantly, 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 your Panerai watch with soap and warm water, using a soft brush. After this operation, and also after bathing in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the watch with clean 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 to expose them to direct sunlight, because the rapid evaporation of the water could damage their shape and quality. After each bathe in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the strap with clean water. The leather strap is made from leather which has not been chemically treated, which gives it a very natural, soft feel. As a result of its characteristics, the colour and form of the leather tend to change with the passage of time while maintaining all of its beauty. 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 skins coming from fragile or endangered species taken from the wild.
