Panerai – Military tribute

As precision instruments used for special missions and covered by military secrecy, some watches made by Panerai in the 1940s had no indication on the dial apart from the hour markers. But other models carried names referring to the luminous substance used on the dial – Radiomir or Luminor – or of the institution which had commissioning the watches, the Italian Navy. Inspired by these is the new Luminor 1950 3 Days, a special edition of 1,000 units, with the inscription "MARINA MILITARE" on the dial, distinguished by its pure lines and strict fidelity to the characteristics of the historic models.
