The new Luminor Marina 8 Days presents in a contemporary key  many of the innovations which have made the Panerai history but with great fidelity to the original examples made for the Royal Italian Navy . For example, from the history of the brand come two elements which enliven the minimalistaesthetic of the black dial: the small seconds counter at nine o’clock, a distinctive feature of all Luminor Marina models, and the inscription “8 GIORNI BREVETTATO” (“8 DAYS PATENTED”) at three o’clock. The power reserve of the P.5000 hand-wound manufacture movement is indeed eight days, a historic tribute to the long power reserve which was a characteristic of the period examples with Angelus movements, the first which also had the small seconds counter.

The water-resistance of the new Luminor Marina 8 Days also pays tribute to the historic Panerai models and it is tested to 30 atmospheres (equivalent to a depth of about 300 metres).

The water-resistance is ensured by the case made of Type AISI 316L stainless steel, a steel alloy particularly resistant to corrosion, by the screw back and by the element which, more than any other, makes every Luminor unique and immediately recognisable: the iconic  lever device protecting the winding crown designed to improve water-resistance and to protect it from accidental shocks.

The vintage fascination of the new Luminor Marina 8 Days and its ability to retell the glorious history of the brand is also expressed in the engraving in the centre of the case back. This shows a human torpedo (Siluro a Lenta Corsa or S.L.C.), used by the commandos of the Italian Navy in carrying out their underwater missions.

The Luminor Marina 8 Days (PAM00590) is fitted with a brown strap of natural untreated leather and it is supplied with a spare strap and a steel screwdriver. This watch will certainly fascinate the many enthusiasts of the brand in North America, where the new Luminor Marina 8 Days will be sold in an exclusive preview.

STEEL

AISI 316L 1.4435 stainless steel is Officine Panerai’s material par excellence since it is highly resistant to corrosion and is hypoallergenic, making it ideal for contact with the skin.  
The Panerai watches created for the Italian Navy were made of austenitic stainless steel, a reliable material that was also resistant to the extreme environmental conditions in which the commandos operated. AISI 316L, a specification of the American Iron and Steel Institute, is an austenitic stainless steel alloy with a chromium content of 16–18%, 11–14% nickel and 2–3% molybdenum.
Officine Panerai uses the low-carbon variant of this alloy: the lower carbon content of the steel improves its welding qualities where the metal’s thickness is 6mm or less. The excellent technical qualities of this material make it an essential element of every new Officine Panerai collection.

READ MORE ABOUT THIS MOVEMENT

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.
