Panerai: Luminor Marina eSteel

Noted for being the very first model to feature the patented crown-protecting deviceLuminor has been at the forefront of the brand’s technical innovations and remains so today, becoming the first Panerai watch to feature one of the most remarkable technical achievements in the brand’s history: eSteel. Composed of recycled-based material, eSteel is an advancement that represents a step in Panerai’s commitment to reduce the need for virgin material extraction and its associated high environmental impact.

89g of the Luminor Marina eSteel components are made of recycled-based materials, corresponding to the 58,4% of the total weight of the watch (that is 152,4g). Both the case and dial of Luminor Marina eSteel feature the new recycled-based steel alloy. The challenges of developing the material were manifold. Foremost among these: the requirement that eSteel meets the same rigorous standards demanded of the steel cases that preceded it. eSteel exhibits the identical chemical behavior, physical structure and resistance to corrosion as a non-recycled alloy

The new Luminor Marina eSteel features a brushed 44mm case with a polished bezel, a rubberized crown in the same color as the dial and the lever is personalized with the eSteel logo. The watches areavailable in three dial colors: Blu Profondo, Grigio Roccia and Verde Smeraldo, the last of which is exclusive to Panerai boutiques and e-commerce. Each features a polished dial with gradient color which goes from dark to light color, with the eSteel logo printed on it.
