In their own words Panerai define themselves as follows: The OFFICINE PANERAI watches are a natural blend of Italian design, Swiss technology and passion for the sea. This concise definition truly does define the brand. Founded in 1860 on Ponte alle Grazie in Florence, Panerai has held fast to it’s origins maintaining the overall look and style of the watches produced over 150 years ago. This example is a Luminor Marina 1950 Three Days Automatic. The Luminor family is characterized by the crown-protecting bridge, a unique feature that has added greatly to the popularity of the Panerai brand. The black, sandwich dial features Arabic and stick markers and hands which glow the distinct Panerai green in low light situations. The 44mm stainless steel case makes an impressive statement on the wrist of any watch enthusiast. No longer thought of as a sport watch, the distinct design allows the wearer to sport this watch in formal and casual environments. This watch comes with box and papers.
