Special Editions 2001

In its Special Editions Collection, Officine Panerai has added the Luminor Marina 1950 watch-a magnificent 47mm timepiece that pays tribute to the first of its type unveiled in 1950. Perfectly legible under water, the watch conforms to its earlier counterpart with a dial consisting of two superimposed layers and a bridge device that is protected by trademarks.

The COSC-certified chronometer watch offers a power reserve of 56 hours and is crafted in steel. It will be produced in a symbolic 1,950 pieces over a two-year period. Also in the Special Editions Collection is the exceptional Luminor Blackseal watch that links past, present and future. The Officine Panerai watch features a brushed steel cover that is engraved with two Italian frogmen in action on their human torpedo, an image that also appears on the dial of the watch. The engraving is executed entirely by hand by Officine Panerai’s skilled craftsmen.

In 1997, Officine Panerai became a member of the prestigious Richemont International SA Group, and currently the brand manufactures its timepieces in Neuchtel, Switzerland, both manufacturing the mechanical components of its timepieces but also using the high-quality beautifully decorated ETA calibers. Among the watch-connoisseurs worldwide, the Italian watchmaker is also known for its very exclusive watch lines that limit to 1000 units or even less the number of individual pieces manufactured from a model in its life span.
Recently the band enriched its watch collection with another eye-catching model, the impressive Officine Panerai Radiomir Composite Marina Militare P2002 47mm PAM00339. The watch features a robust cushion shaped case, measuring 47mm in diameter, which was manufactured from a high-tech interesting material obtained during the electrochemical ceramization of aluminum. This process is in itself a novelty in the world of luxury watch making, and, if the traditional methods assume applying ceramic particles into the metal, Panerai produces this deep hued, high-tech material, by immersing the aluminum case in a chemical bath, where it undergoes ceramization- the process that creates an extremely light and resistant material. The watches case thus acquires a surprising dark matte brown finish and an extreme durability, above the normal metal or ceramic traditional watches.
