Panerai renews its close ties with the Italian Navy with a special 2005 edition of the Luminor Marina Militare. This model has several details which clearly differentiate it from its predecessors since it is a
re-edition of a model dating back to the 1940s: the case is of the Luminor ‘1950’ type (47 mm), the crown is at 9 o’clock with its protecting bridge inscribed with ‘REG. T.M’ (Registered Trade Mark) – a reminder that this device, which enables Panerai timepieces to survive immersion to great depths with maximum security, is protected by patents, and a small seconds counter at 3 o’clock.
The Panerai Luminor Marina Militare is a Limited Edition of 1000 pieces.
Brushed stainless steel watch (47 mm) equipped with a Panerai OP XI Calibre hand-wound movement with Côtes de Genève decoration, polished blued screws. Black ‘sandwich’ dial (two superimposed plates) with luminous Arabic numerals and indices, baton hands, patented crown guard at 9 o’clock, polished steel bezel, 2 mm thick anti-reflective sapphire crystal, steel screw-down back with sapphire window, alligator strap, COSC Chronometer, water-resistant to 100 metres. Limited Edition.
