This gent’s luxury watch belongs to the watchmaker’s Historic collection line. Just like the other Luminors, this PAM 177 is a large size. It is presented in a captivating fine brushed titanium case that measures 44mm in diameter, featuring a fixed bezel and Black dial, on a luxurious leather bracelet. Although it has the same size as the other Luminors, this timepiece is lighter yet as durable as the steel version thanks to the titanium.

This Panerai PAM00177 Luminor Marina Titanio’s dial and caseback are covered by 3.5 mm thick sapphire crystals that feature anti-glare coating, in which the one that shields the dial is slightly cambered (domed) and treated to be more scratch resistant. At the right hand side, there is the brand’s signature lever crown protection device which shields the winding crown and making it water-proof, which is similar to the case, also made of titanium. Meanwhile, the glossy, Brown alligator leather bracelet that measures 24 mm wide and decorated with contrast stitching, comes with a tang buckle clasp for convenient fitting.

Titanium

Not only having remarkable physical, mechanical and corrosion-resistant qualities, Titanium is light, strong and hypoallergenic. Furthermore, titanium has the same strength as steel but is 40% lighter.

Officine Panerai uses two different types of titanium for various kinds of this Panerai PAM177’s components: Grade 2 that offers the best compromise between strength, corrosion resistance, weldability and moldability, and Grade 5 (Ti 6Al-4V) that has very high tensile strength but relatively low ductility.
