Meet the new Panerai Luminor Marina DMLS – 44 MM
The Luminor Marina – 44 mm (PAM01662), reflects the extraordinary balance by combining high-tech features with a sportier profile. The fundamental principle underlying the model is technical and aesthetic enhancement of its constituent materials. The effect is achieved with the mix of DMLS titanium and CarbotechTM, expression of Panerai know-how.
Surprisingly light and at the same time incredibly resilient, the case is made of titanium with Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) technology, a futuristic 3D printing process by which titanium powder, sintered by a high power fiber optic laser, takes a solid shape that grows 30 microns (0.03 mm) at a time. It is a one of a kind process because it can create a hollow cavity within.
This material, together with the equally advanced CarbotechTM, a carbon composite developed by the Panerai Laboratorio di Idee, used for the bezel, crown and lever of the Safety Lock crown protection bridge, opens up to a contemporary and openly unconventional aesthetic dimension. An unpolished anthracite dial with tone-on-tone SuperLumiNovaTM indexes and numbers, enhances the monochrome visual identity.
On the mechanical front, applying the P.9010 Caliber, a recurring presence in the history of Luminor Marina family, was a foregone conclusion. The self-winding movement measures just 6 mm thick and was entirely designed and developed by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. It is equipped with a rapid time adjustment function that also changes the date and is supported by a 3-day power reserve supplied by a double barrel. Waterproof up to 30 bar (about 300 meters deep) the new Luminor Marina – 44 mm is accompanied by a black Panerai SportechTM strap with anthracite stitching.
A second technical rubber strap, in black, completes the package, together with a specific screwdriver for its removal and for replacing the buckle.
