Panerai Luminor Marina PAM 69 Luxury Watch Review

http://www.thewatchbox.com Want a Panerai that's just a bit different? The Panerai Luminor Marina PAM00069 is exactly what you need. The 69er is a Panerai Luminor for the individualist among Paneristi. Consider its metallic blue dial; light explodes from its straight-grained surface and declares to the world that this isn't just another Luminor. It's been said that Panerai watches all look the same, but whoever said that never saw the PAM00069. That singular dial is just the beginning. Panerai equips this watch with a rare linked bracelet. Most models from the Swiss-Italian watchmaker are styled in the mold of its vintage divers and come equipped with leather straps. While that may be fine for slaves to tradition, it flies in the face of real-world utility; don't you want your 300m water resistant watch to laugh at moisture? A gorgeous stainless steel bracelet with double-deployant clasp banishes soggy strap syndrome. And then there's the size. It's so wearable that any wrist will feel at home under the 40mm cushion case of the PAM00069. Consider that Rolex is riding a 60-year winning streak with 40mm sports watches on bracelets, and the 69er's logic is hard to argue. The Luminor Marina PAM00069's robust chain links and signature crown guard impart more than enough presence. That drop-dead dial completes the package with deadly good looks. This unique and memorable Panerai Luminor is available from thewatchbox.com with comprehensive Officine Panerai factory accessories. With a 40mm case, burly bracelet, and dial unlike any other, the "69er" is a tailor-made Rolex killer. See it in high-resolution images on www.thewatchbox.com Video and content by Tim Mosso.
