THE ORIGINS OF LUMINOR CASE.
In the early 1990s, Officine Panerai took aim at the civilian market, presenting a collection of three limited-edition watches to an international public of collectors and admirers of the brand. This gave rise to what is now known as the Luminor case – a unique and timeless design featuring a more modern look and clean, minimal lines.
AISI 316L STAINLESS 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."
OP XXXII calibre
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.
