Then the Panerai Luminor Marina PAM 049 may be the watch you want. With proportions and features that trumpet 80 years of Panerai heritage and an striking 40mm stainless steel case, the PAM 049 is a perfect combination of iconic design and design discretion. Consider the PAM 049 to be an icon for iconoclasts. The patented Panerai "Device Protecting the Crown" is present and correct at three o'clock; a handsome gloss white dial with trademark Luminor legibility declares itself with force; 300M dive depth is on standby for those who like to play rough. For good measure, Panerai adds its superb quick-release lugs that banish screwdrivers scratches for good; if you're handy, do-it-yourself strap changes become a 30-second affair. But even the most leisurely of owners can do the deed in less than a minute. Inside the just-right 40mm case, Panerai offers a rugged tractor of a movement to get the job done with COSC Swiss Chronometer-certicied precision. An automatic caliber based on the bombproof Valjoux 7750 keeps the beat at 28,800 VpH, and its 42-hour power reserve keeps the works in motion through daily use. A quickset date, hacking (stop) seconds, and superior unidirectional winding action round out the refinements.
