The Panerai Luminor Marina 42mm Reference PAM01523 has a classic white dial with black Arabic numerals and large Arabic numerals at the 12 and 6 o’clock positions. The date aperture appears at the 3 o’clock position. There is a small seconds dial at the 9 o’clock position.
Around the dial are luminescent dots – one each for each hour position and two at the 12 o’clock position. Luminescent material is also employed on the hour, minute and small seconds hand. The small seconds hand on the Reference PAM01523 is a bright and cheery sky blue color, while the hour and minute hands are a jet black color that matches the Arabic numeral coloring.
The PAM01523 is made from AISI 316L stainless steel. The case is a substantial 42mm in diameter. The bezel is beautifully polished. One of the most characteristic features of the Panerai timepiece is the lock on the winding crown, which provides added security to the crown and provides additional pressure to the waterproofness system. The PAM01523 comes with a brown leather strap.
