Panerai Luminor Logo 44mm PAM00778 Watch
Model Code: PAM00778£4500.00
Since 1860 Panerai have built their reputation on continuous innovation and unique craftmanship. Giovanni Panerai was a visionary; in 1860 he was the first to apply radium-based powder to dials to give them their luminosity- a substance which revolutionised the watchmaking industry. 158 years later Panerai continue to evolve through the release of iconic and highly functional timepieces, considered by many as essential diving instruments. The famous Luminor model replaced the Radiomir in 1949 following the Second World War. The radium-based powder used in the Radiomir was superceded by a tritium based compound under the 'Luminor' trademark. The Luminor's rapid post-war development led to a number of new innovations, including a crown-protecting bridge, with reinforced wire lugs created from the same block of steel as the case, the cushion-shaped case as in the Radiomir 1940 and the flat, wider bezel. Measuring at 44mm, water resistant to 3 ATM and in very good condition, this Luminor PAM00778 comes alongside a complete set. This includes original packaging, alternate brown leather strap, booklets, paperwork and guarantee dated 13/12/2018.
