Introducing The Panerai Luminor Marina Panerai Goldtech 44mm (PAM01112)
The Luminor Marina has a pretty dressy new addition joining its ranks – one that, at first glance, bears a fairly close resemblance to the watches from the company’s Luminor Due line of slim sport watches. The new Luminor Marina Panerai Goldtech 44mm is definitely one of the more refined takes on the Luminor Marina I’ve seen of late, as evidenced by its satin-brushed dial and its precious metal case.
Panerai Goldtech is not entirely new per se, but it is a fairly recent development for Panerai, and its uses so far have included one of the company’s Submersible models, which in itself offers insight into the nature of the material. In keeping with Panerai’s recent efforts to create longer-lasting stuff from which to make watches, Goldtech aims to be a precious metal that is a bit darker and less resistant to fading than your standard 18-karat 5N pink gold.
According to Panerai, the key to this characteristic is the composition of the alloy, which is 75% gold, 24% copper (whose presence you’d expect due to the material’s deep red coloration), but also a small amount of platinum (0.4%). It’s this hint of platinum matched with a high concentration of copper – a ratio fine-tuned at Panerai’s Laboratorio di Idee – that accounts for what Panerai describes as its “unique tone and an extreme degree of mechanical and oxidation resistance.”
The movement inside is the P.9010, an in-house designed and manufactured caliber beating at 4 Hz and offering a more than ample power reserve of three days via two barrels. This is a movement that has been in the Panerai stable for quite a while and has seen use in a number of different models.
A power reserve of about 70 hours or more paired with automatic winding has become something that I tend to seek out in watches nowadays. Why? While I tend to wear my watches for pretty long stretches of time – usually a month or so – having the ability to switch to something different for the weekend and then switch back on Monday morning without resetting anything is a convenience that I’ve learned to appreciate.
I tend to think that the watch buyer who reaches for a gold Panerai is probably already pretty far down the Panerai rabbit hole. While the company has been making its “Oro Rosso” models for quite a while, they don’t strike me as someone’s first Panerai watch. But for the right buyer who’s in love with the shape of these watches, which I do believe is a legitimate design object, I can certainly see the appeal of having a gold model.
With its refined aesthetic, sunbrushed satin dial, and alligator strap, this version of the Luminor Marina does appear to be veering a bit into the territory occupied by the Luminor Due, but it also comes with the characteristically large proportions that have made Panerai the great success that it’s been for quite a while now.
