The 44 mm case and the protective bridge over the winding crown are sculptured in Panerai Composite, the material that represents synthetic ceramic and applied in watchmaking for the first time by the brand. To create the material, the brandís specialists used a electro-chemical process that involved the transformation of aluminum. Panerai Composite boasts unique properties - it is considerably lighter than ceramic, yet much harder and more resistant than steel. The material is matt and immediately distinctive in appearance.
The sandwich construction of the classic Panerai dial incorporates two superimposed layers with the use of the Super-LumiNova to come up with the fluorescent numerals and hour markers. The dial guarantees supreme legibility even in no-light conditions. The sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating protects the dial.
The new Panerai watch is 300-meter water-resistant. It is secured to the wrist on an antiqued brown leather strap fitted with a big-sized Composite buckle of the same shade. The Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic Composite - 44 mm watch is delivered with a second interchangeable strap and a steel screwdriver.
