At this year’s SIHH, Panerai debuted the Luminor Logo Marina 3 Days Acciaio PAM776, part of the new Luminor Logo collection, which acts as both a nod to the first Luminor sold to the public back in 1993 and as the brand’s entry-level timepiece. But while previous Luminor Logo watches have used external movements, the brand is giving the PAM776 and other pieces in the Logo collection a new in-house movement, developed entirely by the brand at its Neuchâtel manufactury: the hand-wound P.6000 which boasts a lengthy, three-day power reserve.
The movement comes packed in a 44mm case, which retains the Luminor’s iconic silhouette and locking crown guard and is water-resistant to 100 meters. Meanwhile, the black dial comes adorned with heavily-lumed, hollowed dial numerals that, in conjunction with the Officine Panerai logo at six o’clock, make the watch a dead-ringer for the Luminor launched in 1993. What’s more, with a price range from $4,750 to $5,000, the PAM776 should prove to be the ideal entry-point for newcomers to the Panerai brand.
