Panerai Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Automatic PAM359
Panerai PAM359 was introduced at the Geneva SIHH in 2010 and it has a bit different styling compared to other Panerai models.
Your usual Panerai watch won’t have all the numbers on the dial, but Panerai PAM359 is not what you would expect. It has all the numbers on the dial, expect for the 3 as it was replaced by the date window. The dial is being the biggest difference to other Panerai Luminor 1950 models as most models have only 3-4 cardinal numerals. However, this Panerai PAM359 has really cool sandwich dial which makes all the difference in the world. Luminova on Panerai PAM359 is beige, some call this “dirty dial” because of it’s sandy vintage colour. However, the black sandwich dial with nice brownish hue just compliments this beige Luminova. The case on this Panerai PAM359 is 1950 style which is completely polished. The PAM359 has a crystal case back and has Panerai’s in-house P.9000 automatic movement with a power reserve of three days. The watch comes with nice black leather strap with beige stitches (the colour of stitches perfectly matches colour of Luminova).
A standard Panerai Luminor differs from a Panerai Luminor Marina in two aspects. Panerai Luminor has no seconds hand whereas a Luminor Marina has a small seconds hand. Secondly, a Panerai Luminor (Marina) 1950 has an entirely different case to a Luminor. The “standard” Panerai Luminor has a “boxy” case whereas the Luminor 1950 has a sensational cushion-shaped case.
Panerai PAM359 is a 44mm steel Luminor with the 1950 case and a high-end, in-house calibre P.9000 movement.
Our example comes as a full set, all 3 boxes, instructions, stamped and dated certificate from 2016, tools, extra spring bars, and both the original leather strap as the rubber one. All in fantastic condition!
