IN THE 1930S AND 1940S, THE RADIOMIR AND LUMINOR NAMES IDENTIFIED THE LUMINESCENT SUBSTANCES USED BY OFFICINE PANERAI to increase the night-time and underwater visibility of watch dials intended for use by Italian Navy commandos. Over the years, the two terms have come to identify the shape of the cases of Officine Panerai's two iconic watches, one case representing the evolution of the other. The Luminor case was in fact born out of the need to make the Radiomir case even more resistant and watertight. This is why the crown-protecting device was added, shielding the crown and making it more watertight, with the strap attachments made from the same block of steel as the case replacing the welded wire lugs. The Luminor 1950 case represents another stage in the evolution of Officine Panerai cases. The case-middle of the Luminor 1950 3 Days - 47 mm by Officine Panerai, made of polished steel in the classic 47mm diameter, is rounded and cusp-shaped on the sides, a direct development of the cushion-shape case which still characterises Radiomir watches today. Other details are the result of a constant quest to both reclaim the past and strive for innovation: The flat case-back with large sapphire glass window which reveals the movement, the slightly thinner strap attachments which provide greater overall style, the Plexiglas crystal, the engraving of the reference details between the lugs, the inscription "Luminor Panerai" no longer printed but engraved on the dial in period characters. The Luminor 1950 3 Days - 47mm by Officine Panerai has a P.3000 calibre, a manual-wound mechanical movement designed and developed entirely by Officine Panerai at its Neuchtel Manufacture.
