  • Catalogue Essay

    Since gaining a global following of loyal collectors over the years, Panerai has become one of the most iconic manufacturer of military timepieces since the 1930’s. In recent times, the Luminor was among one of the most requested and acquired watches of the early 21st century adopting a classic and refined aesthetic heavily inspired from early examples from the 1950’s, most notable for its timeless and signature oversized crown guard.

    In 2012, Panerai released a limited edition Luminor Marina ref. PAM 392 featuring a reduced 42mm diameter case allowing a much comfortable wrist presence for daily wear. Furthermore, it houses the firm’s fully in-house double barrel cal. P9000 with 3 days of power reserve.

    The present example numbered 679 of a limited edition of 2,000 pieces is offered in excellent overall condition with very minimal signs of use and wear. Adding to its attraction, it is further accompanied by the full set of accessories.

  • Artist Biography

    Panerai

    Italian • 1860

    Known for its robust designs and large case sizes, Officine Panerai was established in 1860 by Giovanni Panerai in Florence, Italy. Around 1900, Giovanni's grandson Guido Panerai took over, and Panerai became the supplier to the Regia Marina — the Royal Italian Navy. After supplying the navy with high-precision instruments for a number of years, Officine Panerai created Radiomir, a radium-based powder that gives luminosity to the dials of sighting instruments and devices. By 1936, the Royal Italian Navy approached Panerai again with the request to design a watch resistant to extreme underwater conditions. The watch they created became known as the "Radiomir".

    Panerai's watches made during the early twentieth century era were comprised of cases designed and manufactured by Rolex SA, with Cortébert, a Swiss manufacturer, supplying the majority of their movements. The most recognizable designs from the firm are the Radiomir and Luminor. To date, vintage models from the first half of the 1900s, such as the reference 3646 and 6152 models, remain the most desirable among collectors.
