Luminor 1950 3 days Chrono Fly Back Automatic Ceramica

The full name: Luminor 1950 3 days Chrono Fly back Automatic Ceramica. In the clock ticks a very sporting heart. The sophisticated chronograph movement P. 9100 from the Panerai will manufacture it embedded in a connection with the technical and optical qualities of Black ceramic. Because the casing with a diameter of 44 mm consists of a synthetic ceramic zirconium oxide. This material is five times harder than steel with much lower weight, characterised by an exceptionally high resistance to scratches, corrosion and temperature resistance.

Sophisticated Production

The production of this material is technically very demanding. A complex procedure matting a black ceramic with a zirconium powder produced unusually smooth and therefore gentle to the skin surface. Each part of the body is formed it individually and undergoes several processing steps until the chronograph receives his smooth and matte finish with a final finish with glass bead blasting.

Typical Panerai Design

The design is typical Panerai: lines of case and dial remain unmistakably true to the identity of the company which was founded in 1860 in Florence. Beautiful details: a so called Flyback function are used to back and immediately again restart the chronograph hands to zero. The caliber P. 9100 features a central blue chronograph seconds hand and a central minute hand coated with rhodium. So, the dial is interrupted only by the small seconds display on the 9 o’clock position and the opposite date window.

Water Resistant to 100 Meters

The push-buttons for operation of chronograph functions are located on the 8 o’clock position (Fly back function and the seconds hand to zero) and the 10 o’clock position (start and stop). The power reserve is 72 hours. Its water resistance owes the Luminor 1950 including the Crown protection bridge placed between the handles up to 10 bar (corresponding to a depth of about 100 meters). The Luminor 1950 watch will be available in Ehotelat.
