The Luminor 1950 3 Days Luxury Watch — Panerai


The Pan­erai Lumi­nor Left-Handed is a lux­ury watch that wins from the first glance, to be immersed in an expe­ri­ence of enjoy­ment that comes com­plete with the tech­ni­cal finesse and constructive.

There are watches that since their first appear­ance stand out as true icons of a brand, for their abil­ity to recount the his­tory and iden­tity through design. One of these is the Lumi­nor 1950 3 Days — 47mm, the main lines of which imme­di­ately won fans in search of a sim­ple model in which you could find all the charm of vin­tage Pan­erai watches.

Luminor 1950 3 Days

The Lumi­nor 1950 is avail­able in a ver­sion enriched by a fur­ther his­tor­i­cal detail: Officine Pan­erai presents in fact, the left-handed ver­sion, with the wind­ing crown and the pro­tec­tive device to nine o’clock, on the left side of the chest.

The stain­less steel case of the new model has a detail that makes it unique, dis­tin­guish­ing it from the clas­sic Lumi­nor 1950 case: the case mid­dle pro­file has a cusp, which evokes the form of a cash cush­ion. This lit­tle detail, retrieved directly from some spec­i­mens of the era, tells the story that led to the trans­for­ma­tion of Radiomir that was cre­ated in the year 1936 and has clas­sic cush­ion case, the Lumi­nor, more mas­sive in scale and dis­tin­guished by the struc­ture of the crown.

Another ele­ment of great charm is the absolute purity of the black dial with large numeral hour mark­ers at the car­di­nal points, on which is engraved “Lumi­nor Pan­erai” with the char­ac­ter of the build­ing. The clar­ity and read­abil­ity are also enhanced by the sand­wich struc­ture of the dial, formed by two super­im­posed plates between which is inter­posed a layer of Super-LumiNova ensures high brightness.

To pro­tect the dial, there is no crys­tal sap­phire but a Plex­i­glas, inspired by his­tor­i­cal pat­terns of poly­methyl methacry­late. The move­ment that ani­mates the new Lumi­nor 1950 3 Days Left-Handed is the man­ual wind­ing cal­iber with three days of charg­ing P.3000, entirely designed and pro­duced in the Officine Pan­erai man­u­fac­ture in Neuchâ­tel. With a diam­e­ter of 16 ½ lignes, cal­iber has a struc­ture char­ac­ter­ized by large bridges, two spring bar­rels which pro­vide the three-day power reserve and a bal­ance wheel of almost 13.2 mm.

The Left-Handed Lumi­nor 1950 3 Days is water resis­tant to 100 feet deep (10 atmos­pheres). It comes with a leather strap nat­ural and untreated, closed by a brushed steel buckle inspired by period mod­els, and is accom­pa­nied by a sec­ond rub­ber strap and a Plex­i­glas ® parts.
