Panerai Luminor: A Popular Military Diving Watch

The Panerai Luminor is an industry icon. Its crown-protecting bridge alone is enough to make this former military watch one of the most recognizable wristwatches on the market. The collection's top models are extremely rare and feature a tourbillon.


5 Reasons to Buy a Panerai Luminor

  • A famous design with a crown-protecting bridge
  • A safe investment
  • Top models with a flyback chronograph or tourbillon
  • Rare collector's editions
  • Luminor Equation of Time with an equation of time function

A Recognizable Sports Watch

The Panerai Luminor is one of the world's most distinctive sports watches. Its main features include a cushion-shaped case and large crown-protecting bridge. This unique crown guard protects the crown against impacts and also presses it firmly into the case to prevent water from reaching the delicate movement within. The dial is unmistakably Panerai with its alternating Arabic numerals and indices. Luminous markings and hands make telling the time in the dark or under water a breeze. This detail is essential, as this military watch was originally issued to Italian combat divers. In fact, the Luminor was initially unavailable to the public.

Today's collection contains minimalistic base models with hour and minute hands, the Luminor Marina with a small seconds dial, flyback chronographs, GMT watches, and many other models and special editions. The most complicated models are extremely rare and feature a tourbillon, moon phase indicator, or an equation of time function for displaying the difference between apparent and mean solar time.

What's more, Panerai produces two other collections with strong ties to the Luminor: the Submersible and the Luminor Due. The latter is a dress watch, meaning it is much flatter than the standard Luminor. On the other hand, the Submersible is a true diving watch, with a unidirectional bezel and 300 m (30 bar, 984 ft) of water resistance.

No matter which model you choose, Panerai watches tend to maintain their value, especially with their original box and papers. Furthermore, it's advisable to switch out and store the original strap. A mint-condition strap will have a positive effect on the resale value of your Panerai.

Luminor Base: Prices for Entry-Level Models

If you're on the market for the quintessential Luminor watch, look no further than the ref. PAM00112. This stainless steel Base model is 44 mm in diameter and has Panerai's distinctive crown-protecting bridge. Also known as the Panerai 112, its dial has Arabic numerals at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o'clock. Long line indices mark the other hours.

This Luminor Base has a so-called "sandwich" dial made of two stacked discs. The upper disc features cutouts for the hour markers, allowing the luminous material on the lower disc to shine through. Panerai equips this timepiece with the caliber OP X, a modified ETA Unitas 6497-A2. This manual movement has a 56-hour power reserve. Pre-owned Luminor 112 watches sell for around 4,300 USD. You can purchase a never-worn model for about 4,600 USD.

While the 112 has a black dial, there are also versions with white dials available. One example is the ref. PAM00630 with Arabic numerals and a Panerai logo on the lower half of its dial. Line indices mark the hours, which makes telling the time even easier. The ref. PAM00630 costs roughly 4,100 USD new and 3,600 USD pre-owned.


How much does a Luminor Base with an in-house caliber cost?

Panerai has been outfitting the Luminor Base with in-house calibers since 2014, starting with the P.5000 with an 8-day power reserve. This manual movement ticks away inside the PAM00560 with a black dial, PAM00561 with a white dial, and the PAM00562 with a brown dial. Instead of the company logo, these three models are stamped with the words "8 Days" at 6 o'clock. Prices for new timepieces sit between 4,800 and 5,800 USD. Used watches demand anywhere from 4,100 to 5,300 USD.

In 2018, Panerai upgraded the Luminor Base Logo, replacing the earlier ETA Unitas movement with their in-house caliber P.6000. This movement boasts an impressive 3-day power reserve. Luckily, this improvement had very little influence on this timepiece's price. For example, you can find a mint-condition ref. PAM00773 on Chrono24 for around 4,000 USD, while pre-owned pieces change hands for some 3,600 USD. The PAM00775 with a white dial and PAM00774 with a black dial and blue textile strap occupy a similar price range.

Features of the Panerai Luminor Base

  • In-house caliber P.5000 with an 8-day power reserve
  • In-house caliber P.6000 with a 3-day power reserve
  • Ref. PAM00773 worth around 4,000 USD in mint condition

Prices for the Luminor Marina with a Small Seconds

One distinctive feature of the Panerai Luminor Marina is its small seconds at 9 o'clock. Versions with the automatic caliber OP III have an additional date display at 3 o'clock. In terms of size, these automatic watches are available with a typical 44-mm Luminor case or as a smaller 40 or 42-mm edition. The latter make fantastic unisex watches. The 40-mm version (PAM01048) costs just over 5,500 USD new and 4,400 USD pre-owned. Prices for the 42-mm edition (PAM01392) fall between 5,400 and 6,000 USD. Finally, the 44-mm ref. PAM01312 requires an investment of around 6,100 USD in mint condition, while pre-owned pieces cost about 5,800 USD.

If you'd prefer a manual Luminor Marina, you should take a closer look at the refs. PAM00776 (on a leather strap) and PAM00777 (on a textile strap). The in-house caliber P.6000 powers these timepieces and has a 72-hour power reserve. You can call a Panerai Luminor Marina 776 or 777 your own for between 3,800 and 4,500 USD.

Perhaps you already own multiple Panerai watches and are now looking to add a gold Luminor to your collection. If so, the PAM0511 is perfect for you. This Luminor Marina is made of 18-karat rose gold and has an astonishing 8-day power reserve thanks to its powerful in-house caliber, the P.5000. New, this gold watch sells for around 17,000 USD. Pre-owned pieces demand about 15,500 USD.


For Divers: The Luminor Submersible

Unlike most Luminor watches, the Submersible features a rotatable diving bezel. Each timepiece gets its power from an automatic caliber. These movements come with a small seconds at 9 o'clock and a date at 3. There's also a wide range of case materials to choose from, including stainless steel, titanium, and carbon fibers.

As its name suggests, the Submersible is at home under water. Its 300 m (30 bar, 984 ft) of water resistance is more than enough for recreational diving. This collection's most impressive model, the Luminor Submersible 2500M, ref. PAM00194 , can even survive the pressures experienced at a depth of 2,500 m (250 bar, 8,202 ft). This 47-mm timepiece is limited to a run of 1,000 pieces and costs a solid 8,800 USD pre-owned. Due to their low numbers, never-worn pieces are extremely difficult to find.

Panerai gave the Submersible its own collection in 2019. It now stands alongside the Luminor, Luminor Due, and Radiomir. The collection's top models are either made of so-called "Carbotech" (a carbon fiber composite) or have a flyback chronograph.

Features of the Submersible

  • Water-resistant to 300 m (30 bar, 984 ft)
  • Unidirectional bezel
  • Top models with a flyback chronograph

Prices for the Submersible Chrono and Entry-Level Models

The Submersible Chrono ref. PAM00614 is a 47-mm titanium watch with a titanium bezel. Its sister model, the ref. PAM00615, is also 47 mm in diameter and made of titanium; however, it has a matte black ceramic bezel. What's more, this model has a 12-hour counter at 3 o'clock. The PAM00614 has a date display at the same position. The in-house caliber P.9100 ticks away inside both chronographs. Be sure to have around 13,500 USD on hand for the version with a ceramic bezel and 12,000 USD for the one with a titanium bezel. Both models cost some 1,100 to 2,200 USD less pre-owned.

The Submersible is also available with a "small" 42-mm case. Entry-level models are made of stainless steel and listed under the reference numbers PAM00683 and PAM00959. Their ceramic bezel inlays are highly scratch resistant. In terms of caliber, Panerai has chosen the automatic OP XXXIV – a modified version of a base caliber from the Richemont group. This means it is neither an in-house movement nor a standard ETA or Sellita movement. The OP XXIV boasts a small seconds dial, date display, and 3-day power reserve. Both versions have a list price of 9,800 USD. However, you can find mint-condition pieces for about 2,200 USD less on Chrono24.


How much does the Panerai Luminor GMT Automatic cost?

A GMT function is one of the most popular watch complications. It allows frequent travelers to keep an eye on the time in two time zones. A single glance tells them the current local time as well as the time back home.

The Panerai Luminor GMT Automatic displays its second time zone using an additional central hour hand and a rotatable 24-hour scale. This timepiece comes with a 42 or 44-mm case. The smaller edition (PAM01535) houses the in-house caliber P.9011 with a 72-hour power reserve. On the reverse side, you'll find a sapphire glass case back that offers a stunning view of the movement at work. This is also the location of the power reserve indicator, which lets you know how much energy this GMT watch has left. Prices for a new timepiece sit around 6,800 USD, while pre-owned watches go for 6,100 USD.

The ref. PAM01441 is 44 mm in diameter. Both its case and bezel are crafted from matte black ceramic, while the solid titanium case back features a black coating. The in-house caliber P.9010/GMT ticks away inside this timepiece and lacks a power reserve indicator. You can get your hands on this timepiece for just over 8,800 USD in mint condition or 7,500 USD pre-owned.

One of this collection's highlights is the Panerai Luminor GMT 10 Days, ref. PAM00533. The automatic in-house caliber P.2003 provides this timepiece with its astounding 10-day (or 240-hour) power reserve. A linear power reserve indicator at 6 o'clock lets you know when this watch needs more energy. The subdial at 9 o'clock performs double duty as a small seconds and an AM/PM indicator. A never-worn Panerai Luminor GMT 10 Days costs roughly 10,500 USD. Pre-owned pieces generally sell for 1,100 USD less.


What alternatives are there?

If you're a fan of Luminor designs but prefer a retro look, you may enjoy the Luminor 1950 series. Their case design was inspired by watches from the 1950s. These timepieces are easy to spot thanks to the "REG. T.M." engraving on the crown guard. Other Luminor models do without this feature. The 1950 series also has more defined curves than its flatter siblings.

You can purchase a Luminor Marina 1950 (PAM00312) for about 5,200 USD. Prices for new models start around 6,200 USD. The Panerai 312 is powered by the in-house caliber P.9000, which features a 72-hour power reserve. This automatic movement also has a date display and small seconds.

If you're looking for a Panerai watch for at the office, the Luminor Due collection is your best bet. This series contains simple three-hand pieces with a small seconds and a manual caliber, automatic watches with a date display, and GMT watches with a date display and power reserve indicator. The Luminor Due ref. PAM00904 is this collection's entry-level model. It's 42 mm in diameter and gets its power from the automatic caliber P.900. You can purchase this model on Chrono24 for about 5,400 USD new and 5,000 USD pre-owned.


From a Military Secret to a Coveted Sports Watch

Panerai released the first Luminor watches in the early 1950s. These early military watches were designed specifically for the elite combat divers of the Italian Navy. The name "Luminor" comes from the tritium-based luminous material used on the dials. Officine Panerai, as the company is officially known, patented this material in 1949. Prior to that, radium was the material of choice because it glowed incredibly brightly in the dark. The Radiomir collection was named after this radioactive material.

American actor Sylvester Stallone has had a major impact on the popularity and prestige of the Panerai brand. Stallone purchased a Luminor while shooting Daylight (1996) and even wore it in the film. He was so impressed by the timepiece that he ended up collaborating on a limited edition version with Panerai: The Luminor Daylight Slytech (5218-207A). Today, this watch is so highly coveted that prices of over 33,000 USD are not unheard of.
