The birth of the device protecting the winding crown The Special Edition created by Officine Panerai is the Luminor 1950 3 Days. In this model, the brown dial is fitted in a Luminor 1950 case, immediately recognisable by the bridge-shaped device with its locking lever which exercises a light pressure on the winding crown to protect it from accidental shocks and to help ensure the watch’s water-resistance. This device had certainly been invented and used even earlier, perhaps even before the end of the 1940s, but the patent application was only lodged as late as 1955, probably delayed because of the military secrecy imposed by the Italian Navy. The distinctive, original element of the model is the brown dial, its colour inspired by that of the vintage watches which have undergone the discolouring effect caused by the luminous material. The model is supplied with a Ponte Vecchio strap in brown leather with visible ecru sewing, the heat-engraved OP logo and a tongue buckle in polished steel personalised Panerai.
