THE P.9010 MOVEMENT
"The Luminor Marina, one of the world’s best-loved Panerai models, is updated by the P.9010 automatic movement, with a power reserve of three days. High quality technical content and subtly redesigned proportions have reduced the thickness and weight of these watches."
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."
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.
