The greatest of icons only become more remarkable with time, as appreciation for their history grows and they evolve to meet the needs of every new moment. Luminor, the most recognizable and legendary of Panerai collections, has established itself as one of these. For more than seven decades it has stood as the preeminent emblem of the Panerai brand.
Noted for being the very first model to feature the patented crown-protecting device, it has been at the forefront of the brand’s technical innovations and remains so today, becoming the first Panerai watch to feature one of the most remarkable technical achievements in the brand’s history: eSteel™. Composed of recycled-based material, eSteel™ is an advancement that represents a step in Panerai’s commitment to reduce the need for virgin material extraction and its associated high environmental impact.
89g of the Luminor Marina eSteel™ components are made of recycled-based materials, corresponding to the 58,4% of the total weight of the watch (that is 152,4g). Both the case and dial of Luminor Marina eSteel™ feature the new recycled-based steel alloy. The challenges of developing the material were manifold. Foremost among these: the requirement that eSteel™ meets the same rigorous standards demanded of the steel cases that preceded it. eSteel™ exhibits the identical chemical behavior, physical structure and resistance to corrosion as a non-recycled alloy.
