Panerai began perfecting its expertise in the category as early as 1943, the reference year of the Mare Nostrum project, a model designed to serve the deck officers of the Italian Navy, developed only to the prototype stage, one of which is carefully preserved in the Panerai museum in Florence.
Panerai’s return to the field of chronography is enhanced by the preciousness of Panerai GoldtechTM, a type of gold distinguished by high percentages of copper and platinum, the metals responsible for its intense color, and heightened resistance to oxidation. This alloy lends an aesthetic dimension and mechanical properties that do not go unnoticed in the Luminor Chrono GoldtechTM Blu Notte (PAM01111).
Shielded by a smokey sapphire glass window, integrated into the case-back and decorated in a wave pattern through a metallisation process, the movement is the new Caliber P.9200, solid and reliable. The self-winding chronograph features a 42- hour power reserve, resulting from the energy stored inside a single barrel.
Water-resistant up to 5 bar (about 50 meters deep), the Luminor Chrono GoldtechTM Blu Notte is paired with a deep blue alligator leather strap fitted with a trapezoidal pin buckle in brushed Panerai GoldtechTM. An additional technical rubber strap, also in deep blue, multiplies the opportunities to customise the model as does a screwdriver for its replacement and removal of the buckle.
