Panerai Luminor Marina DMLS

Press Release

Panerai Luminor Marina DMLS

Panerai reinterprets the iconic Luminor Marina reinforcing its commitment in high-tech materials field.

The Luminor Marina – 44 mm (PAM01662), reflects the extraordinary balance by combining high-tech features with a sportier profile. The fundamental principle underlying the model is technical and aesthetic enhancement of its constituent materials. The effect is achieved with the mix of DMLS titanium and Carbotech™, expression of Panerai know-how.

Surprisingly light and at the same time incredibly resilient, the case is made of titanium with Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) technology, a futuristic 3D printing process by which titanium powder, sintered by a high power fiber optic laser, takes a solid shape that grows 30 microns (0.03 mm) at a time. It is a one of a kind process because it can create a hollow cavity within.

This material, together with the equally advanced Carbotech™, a carbon composite developed by the Panerai Laboratorio di Idee, used for the bezel, crown and lever of the Safety Lock crown protection bridge, opens up to a contemporary and openly unconventional aesthetic dimension. An unpolished anthracite dial with tone-on-tone SuperLumiNova™ indexes and numbers, enhances the monochrome visual identity.

On the mechanical front, applying the P.9010 Caliber, a recurring presence in the history of Luminor Marina family, was a foregone conclusion. The self-winding movement measures just 6 mm thick and was entirely designed and developed by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. It is equipped with a rapid time adjustment function that also changes the date and is supported by a 3-day power reserve supplied by a double barrel.

Waterproof up to 30 bar (about 300 meters deep) the new Luminor Marina – 44 mm is accompanied by a black Panerai Sportech™ strap with anthracite stitching. A second technical rubber strap, in black, completes the package, together with a specific screwdriver for its removal and for replacing the buckle.
