Identifiable by its case and dial layout, PlatinumtechTM Luminor Marina stands out in the Luminor Marina collection thanks to the noble metal that endows it with toughness: Platinumtech. An alloy reformulated and perfected by the Panerai Laboratorio di Idee, it is harder than conventional platinum with enhanced physical properties. The precious metal was selected to give the model greater resistance, though it is considerably more difficult to work and polish.

The delicate finishing of the PlatinumtechTM Luminor Marina case requires, not surprisingly, a meticulous and highly specialized manual polishing process

Masterful aesthetics have been matched by refined, high-performance mechanics furnished by the self-winding Caliber P.9010, which has a three-day power reserve and is designed and developed entirely by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. The movement features a rapid adjustment system that can move the hour hand forward or backward in increments of one hour, independent of the minute hand.
