<h1>LUMINOR 1950 3 DAYS POWER RESERVE - 47 MM</h1>
The Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days and the Luminor 1950 3 Days Power Reserve express
the excellent combination of vintage design and technology which makes Panerai watches
unique. The special design of the Luminor 1950 case used by the two models is inspired by a rare,
historic watch which is notable for the pronounced rounding of the cusps of the caseband. This
detail recalls a stage of transformation, which took place in the 1940s, from the classic Radiomir
cushion case to that of the Luminor.
In both models, the case 47 mm in diameter is made of polished AISI 316L stainless steel while
the lever device protecting the winding crown is of brushed steel. The black dial, protected by a
cambered sapphire crystal, is in the typical Panerai style, with the small seconds dial at 9 oclock
and the alternation of large figures and bar hour markers. The dial is of sandwich construction
with a layer of ecru Super-LumiNova® contained between two plates, the luminosity emerging
through apertures corresponding to the hour markers and figures, thus ensuring the maximum
legibility and intensity of the dial. Completing the design of the dial are the engravings of the logo,
executed in period lettering, while the case number and the reference are engraved on the case.
The Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days and the Luminor 1950 3 Days Power Reserve are both fitted with the new P.3001 and P.3002 manufacture calibres,
which are distinguished from each other by the different ways in which the power reserves is indicated. In the P.3001 the power
reserve indication is located on the bridge of the movement, and is therefore visible through the
crystal on the back, while in the P.3002 the indicator appears on the dial. With a diameter of 16½
lignes, the two calibres have in common the typical structure of large bridges, two spring barrels
giving a power reserve of three days and a balance wheel 13.2 mm in diameter with variable
inertia, enabling the rate of the watch to be adjusted through external screws on the rim. Both
also have the seconds zero reset device and a mechanism for the rapid adjustment of the hour,
enabling the hour hand to jump one hour at a time, without interfering with the movement of the
minute hand or the running of the watch.
The Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days (PAM00422) and the Luminor 1950 3 Days Power
Reserve (PAM00423) are part of the Historic Collection. Both are supplied with a strap of natural,
untreated leather, fastened by a brushed steel buckle inspired by period models.
