From Radiomir to Luminor

Diving watches from Panerai


The roots of the Panerai Luminor model are embedded in its predecessor – the iconic Radiomir. Panerai developed the functional and sturdy diver’s watch in 1936 for the Italian Navy. The screw-down winding crown and screw-down case back ensured that the Radiomir was a particularly waterproof timepiece, which was ideal for the Italian frogmen.

Another characteristic feature of the Panerai Radiomir is its exceptional legibility, which was even guaranteed in unfavourably lit conditions underwater. This feature was made possible by glow-in-the-dark hour markers and hands fitted on the black dial of the watch. Panerai developed a special bulb from zinc sulphate and radium bromide mesothorium and was able to patent it under the name “Radiomir”.

When it turned out that the Radiomir material was highly radioactive, it was replaced by another phosphor named Luminor. 1960 saw the birth of the new yet same Luminor model. The features of the Luminor include a robust case that is created in the traditional cushion shape and a protection bridge what ensures the water tightness of the crown.

Up until the 1990s, Panerai watches served the marine and were not available for commercial distribution. The Luminor and the Luminor Marina were two of three models presented to the public in 1993 as part of the official collection from the Italian brand. Thanks to its unique history and distinctive design, the timepiece quickly gained cult status among collectors and connoisseurs.

A pure design

A timepiece like no other is the Panerai Luminor since it stands out with its unique shape and size. The original timepieces from the 1950s were fitted with a case that measured 47-millimeters in diameter. The current models from the Luminor collection are just as bold with case diameters that vary between 40-47-millimeters.

The Panerai Luminor originated in the world of the Italian Marine Military, as the timepiece were officially supplied to them for decades. Today, the watch model impresses with its fascinating history and speaks to lovers of robust timepieces. Sporty design, extreme strength, and a clear dial are distinct features of the Officine Panerai Luminor. The timepiece is evidently created in a minimalistic manner and makes the hearts of any Panerai fan beat faster. The followers of the Panerai brand include many prominent actors who loyally follow the brand in each of its endeavours.

Sylvester Stallone continually professes his love for the Panerai brand. In fact, many experts argue that the brand was relatively unknown in the 1990s and was only raised to international fame thanks to the talented actor. At his own request, Stallone wore a Panerai timepiece in many films, including the 1996 movie “Daylight”. Colleagues including Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jason Statham soon began to follow in the footsteps of Stallone. Therefore, it was not only the Luminor that gained recognition throughout the world, but also the iconic Radiomir.

Panerai Luminor Marina

A modern marine watch

The Panerai Luminor Marina is a classic timepiece of large dimensions. The case of the watch simply cannot be overlooked as it measures a bold 44-millimeters. The name of the watch has been inspired by the origin of Panerai, as it was once an official supplier of timepieces to the Italian Navy.

The Officine Panerai offers the Luminor Marina in a variety of different versions. Not surprisingly, the model is one of the most highly sought after pieces among the Luminor collection. Popular versions of the timepiece include the Luminor Marina PAM 510 or the Luminor Marina PAM 590, which have been inspired by vintage aesthetics. Both of the models feature an impressive power reserve of 8 days.

Another classic from the series is the Luminor Marina PAM 111. The sleek, black dial with characteristic Panerai numerals is complemented by a small seconds at the 9 o’clock marker. Lovers of timepieces inspired by a vintage-style can also turn to the Luminor Marina PAM 005. The distinctive “OP” logo lettering is adorned on the dial of this watch.
