Officine Panerai Unveils Luminor Marina 8 Days Timepieces With New P.5000 Calibre

Florence’s Officine Panerai has unveiled the 44mm PAM00510 Luminor Marina 8 Days and PAM00511 Luminor Marina 8 Days Oro Rosso timepieces, which both house the new hand-wound P.5000 movement.

In fact, the power reserve of eight days has historical significance. From the end of the 1940s until the early 1950s, Panerai used a 16-ligne Angelus calibre which would run for over one week without being wound: a very long power reserve to meet the requirements of the commandos of the Italian Navy, who during their operations had to be able to rely on an instrument of complete and enduring reliability.

P.5000 calibre, the new hand-wound movement with an eight-day power reserve

This tradition lives again today with the P.5000 calibre, the new hand-wound movement with an eight-day power reserve which makes its debut in the latest Luminor Marina 8 Days and Luminor Marina 8 Days Oro Rosso watches.

The two new timepieces respect the classic aesthetics of the Luminor Marina, notable for the minimalist design of the case and dial. The case is 44mm in diameter and it is immediately recognisable by the bridge device with a locking lever to protect the winding crown. It is available in AISI 316L stainless steel or in 5Npt red gold, a distinctive alloy with a high percentage of copper that gives it a particularly deep colour, and a certain amount of platinum that helps to prevent oxidation. Constructed of two superimposed discs ensuring the clearest legibility, the dial has large baton hour markers and figures, with the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock. It is black in the steel model and brown in the red gold variant.

The P.5000 hand-wound mechanical calibre, visible through the sapphire crystal window set in the back

The P.5000 hand-wound mechanical calibre, visible through the sapphire crystal window set in the back, has been completely developed and made in the Officine Panerai manufacture at Neuchâtel. With a diameter of 15¾ lignes and a thickness of 4.5 mm, it is very robustly constructed. A large plate with a brushed finish and diamond-polished chamfering almost completely conceals the mechanism, while revealing the variable inertia balance which oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour. The long running time is achieved by two spring barrels connected in series which store the power reserve of eight days.

The steel version comes complete with a black leather strap, whilst the red gold variant is fitted with a brown alligator strap

The Luminor Marina 8 Days (PAM00510) and the Luminor Marina 8 Days Oro Rosso (PAM00511) models are part of the Historic Collection. The steel version comes complete with a black leather strap, whilst the red gold variant is fitted with a brown alligator strap. The buckle is made of the same material as the case.
