Panerai PAM00386

Here is a teaser from Panerai. We will probably see the watch launched at next years SIHH. It is the PAM00386, Luminor Marina Automatic Composite 1950 3 days 44 MM. The watch continues where the PAM00339 the Panerai Radiomir Composite left off. I am sure the watch will be sold out even before it hit the stores. The specifications:

Functions: hours, minutes, seconds (sub-dial at 9 o'clock), date
Case: composite 44 mm diameter
Dial: sandwich brown with Arabic numerals and luminous hour markers
Movement: Panerai calibre P.9000
Crystal: sapphire with AR coating, display back with smoked sapphire crystal
Water resistant: 30 ATM
Strap: aged leather strap and a second strap
Collection: Contemporary

The watch.

The beautiful case back.

Looks like it will an exciting SIHH 2011 for Panerai what with this watch and the new P.3000 movement. Time to start saving.

  4. Ugh - my computer just hiccuped. Let me try that again: Do you know what material is the Composite? I am completely taken with the PAM00386, and the composite case looks like a bead blasted PVD. Panerai has some great pictures here: http://2011.panerai.com/en/PAM00386-Luminor-Composite-Marina-1950-3-Days-Automatic-44mm.php

  5. Hi Aaron,

    Welcome to the blog. With regards to your question, Ceramic is a material characterized by a combination of metal and non-metal atoms. It can be produced artificially through simple processes or extremely sophisticated methods, which allow high-performance materials to be synthesized.

    Panerai Composite is obtained through an electrochemical process of ceramization of the aluminium. The aluminium cases are immersed in a chemical bath where, thanks to a conductive liquid and to the electricity which generates extremely high temperatures (up to 10,000°C), the metal undergoes an electrochemical process that profoundly modifies its structure while still allowing it to remain faithful to the original geometry. The result is a material that is extremely homogeneous, solid, of matt appearance and soft to the touch.

    The information above is from various sources.

    Hope that helps.

    Best regards,


  6. when will this beautiful watch be available ?
