The Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Ceramica 44mm has the classic Luminor Marina outline, that features a small second counter at 9 along with a small date window at 3 (on those models that are equipped with an in-house movement) while it adopts for the very first time, on this model, a case made of ceramics, a material widely used by the brand as well as much appreciated by the brand’s enthusiasts.

The ceramic case is the result of a long and delicate process based on a compound of zirconium and a binding powder, that is then blackened out, has to undergo a series of mechanical and thermal treatments and is finally sandblasted.

The main advantages of a ceramic case are its lightness and a scratch resistance ensured by a hardness of 1200HV, 5 times greater than AISI316L, the stainless steel Panerai adopts for case making. The dial, as mentioned above, features no additional register as the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Ceramica 44mm boasts a central minutes hand along with the blue Flyback one, you may easily activate by pushing the round button placed at 8.

The second push button, placed at 10, starts and stops the chrono. Manufactured caliber 9100 has a bunch of tech features that make it spot on: vertical clutch and column wheel mechanisms, two barrels for a total 72 hours of power reserve, packed in a 8,15mm thick movement. Last but not least it adopts a Glucydur balance spring and a KIF Parechoc antishock device. Pricing and additional information to be released during the SIHH 2015.
