“One must be absolutely modern.”

It takes passion, a healthy dose of curiosity and a sense of wonderment to convey the innumerable facets of watchmaking…

Since 1950, the Luminor has changed faces many times but never strayed far from the first tool watches that Panerai supplied to Italian Navy combat divers. The ultimate sport-chic watch, this version is no exception.

A sturdy steel case, a generous 47mm diameter, luminous markers and numerals that stand out against a black sandwich dial, a manual-wind mechanical movement delivering three days of power reserve… it’s hard to argue with the Luminor. A worthy descendant of this long line of elegant but sporty watches, the Luminor 1950 3 Days Acciaio 47mm has all the makings of a dyed-in-the-metal-classic. From its first outings in the 1950s, when Officine Panerai supplied Italian Navy combat divers, the Luminor 1950 has never lost sight of the features that have underpinned its success. Originally designed as a professional tool watch coupled with a design that has since achieved cult status, the Luminor 1950 has seen only incremental changes.

The Luminor 1950 3 Days Acciaio 47mm reprises many of the original model’s key features, including a classic black dial with Super-Luminova-coated markers and numerals for easy readability. The case, made from polished steel, measures 47mm in diameter. Also equipped with the signature crown guard, this modern-day version shares the same dimensions as the very first watch made by Officine Panerai in the late 1940s.

Without doubt, the mechanism is where the biggest changes come into play. Panerai has been developing and producing its own movements since 2005. Released in 2011, Calibre P.3000 is a manual-wind that takes its cue from the movements in the brand’s historic watches. Panerai has designed this movement with functionality and reliability in mind, hence twin barrels that provide three days of power reserve. They can be seen hard at work through the sapphire crystal caseback.
