Hot Take: Panerai Luminor Marina PAM00977 and PAM00978
Panerai is presenting two new Luminor Marina references, in 42mm and 44mm, with another silver shaded dial and with a hardened steel bracelet.
Today, Officine Panerai breaks the news with two new references for their Luminor Marina assortment. The PAM00977 with an unobtrusive 42mm distance across case and the PAM00978 with the more ‘traditional’ 44mm breadth case. Both dhgate watches have the manufacture’s caliber P. 9010 development. Where the SIHH show in Geneva last January was about the Submersible , it appears to be that Panerai is currently gradually adding some new Luminor dhgate watches to their assortment too. It is intriguing to see that brands are delivering more oddities consistently, rather than showing everything simultaneously during one of the two big shows (or three, including the upcoming Time To Move occasion by Swatch Group). Something worth being thankful for, as it is presently simpler to process for dhgate watches fans (and us dhgate watches press).
PAM00977 and PAM00978
The fundamental distinction between these two new Panerai Luminor Marina references, besides the 2mm in width, is the degree of water obstruction. The Panerai PAM00977 has a water opposition of 100 meters (~ 10 bar) and the PAM00978 is appraised 300 meters (~ 30 bar). The bigger case size assists with withstanding higher pressing factor. The cases are made of AISI 316L steel, an amalgam that is particularly resistant to consumption. Comes in helpful given the reality these dhgate watches are made for use in water. Both pieces have the hardened steel bracelet (obscure if these are additionally made of this combination), with a double collapsing catch for a safe lock.
What’s truly new is the silver-hued dial with a brushed completion. It is consistently interesting to utilize such a dial tone, as it at that point comes down to the shade of the hands if there’s enough differentiation to peruse the time. But for this situation, Panerai ensured that the hands and applied hour markers have sufficient difference with the silver-shaded dial. The little running seconds hand is in blue, obviously. On the bracelet, the PAM977 and PAM978 have this metallic look which you probably love or disdain. The case and bracelet play pleasantly with the light, with both cleaned and brushed surfaces. Looking into the issue back you’ll discover a pusher for a simple arrival of the bracelet.
Inside, there’s oneself winding caliber P.9010 that Panerai creates and makes in-house in Neuchatel. This development has a force hold of 72-hours and the hour hand can be set freely from the moment hand. Pretty helpful if you’re a regular explorer. Through the case back, you can observe and appreciate the Panerai development. A double balance bridge guarantees better stability, and the development likewise has a hacking highlight. The caliber P.9010 is pleasantly completed and worth observing through the sapphire precious stone. Winding and setting by means of the protected crown framework, of course.
As composed above, both Panerai PAM00977 and PAM00978 references have a similar development inside. The retail costs are close, 8200 Euro for the 42mm and 8300 Euro for the 44mm. On the off chance that your wrist can deal with the 44mm, that would be my pick.
