Inside, the in-house Calibre P.5000 has a substantial 8-day power reserve (192 hours). It’s in no doubt inspired by Angelus-made 8-day watches of the past, even down to the size (35.7mm/15.75 lignes compared to the Angelus at 16 lignes).
This model, PAM 590 features two of design details that set it apart existing range and also make it more desirable to collectors, specifically when coupled with North American market exclusivity. The Arabic numeral “3” is replaced with an inscription reading “8 GIORNI BREVETTATO” or “8 DAYS PATENTED”. (The small seconds is still at 9 o’clock, as with all other Luminor Marina models.)
