Panerai Luminor Composite Marine 1950 3 Days Automatic 44MM watch PAM00386 can be regarded as the reference PAM00312 repackaged with Panerai Composite material. The two models come with P9000, a mechanical movement with self winding. PAM00386 bears all features that PAM00312 has. The watch case and the device protecting crown in steel are plated with Panerai Composite material, a kind of man-made ceramic material. Panerai Composite is lighter than ceramic, harder than steel. Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Automatic 44MM watch PAM00386 features the watch case in dark brown and brown Suede leather bracelet. It shows low-key but mature and elegant charm, whose entire tone reminds me of Panerai watch bronze. Panerai watch and vintage tone is a perfect match. This is the reason why Panerai watch PAM00386 is so popular.
The classic “sandwich” brown dial bears hollowed-out number and baton scales and date window. “LUMINOR MARINE”at 12 O’clock and “PANERAI” at 6 O’clock show a long history and brand features.

With the help of the device protecting the crown, the Panerai Composite watch case is water resistant up to 300 meters. The mechanical movement with self winding, P9000 is seen clearly throughout smoke grey sapphire crystal, supplying users with 3-day power reserve.
