Some watches are classic, and some are updated. Panerai Luminor Marina Automatic is both. On top of that, it is a dive watch. Updated with modern precision, the Italian dive watch features an automatic mechanical movement and personalized oscillating weight. True to its intended function, Marina is water resistant up to 300 meters, and bears a comfortably fitting wide strap and large buckle that secures its screw-down stainless steel square case in place. The Panerai appeal sticks with the classic and boldly simple watch face, sparsely decorated with the essential indicators. With not too many frills functioning on the side, the Panerai Luminor Marina Automatic is a no-nonsense watch that gives you the time-tested durability of a classic watch, the reliable precision of a modern one, and the commitment and service of the name that has served as timekeeper in Italy for more than a century and a half.
