History
This collection is usually worn by left-handed people .These kind of watches are very much a part of the history of Panerai, the history of which, is as interesting as the watch itself. The genesis of this collection owes its creation to the Italian Navy. The collection was a result of the innovation, which let the Italian Navy commandos to wear watches on the right wrists because they were already wearing so many devices, like depth gauging devices, compass, etc. on the their left wrists. This watch with a winding crown on the left side was a life-saver for them. It allowed them to wear many devices at the same time. The collection exclusively made for men, offers simple design with strong exteriors as its primary selling point.

Design
Panerai PAM00557 is a stylishly designed timepiece with a case diameter of 47mm. The case and the bezel of the watch is steel polished, which makes this watch such a feast for the eyes.  The steel polished case is perfectly in contrast with the black coloured dial. The dial of the watch is engraved with the Arabic and index hour markers.
The Panerai PAM00557 is a watch with simple yet compelling features. It has a strap material made of Panerai strap leather, that comes with an interchangeable fastening buckle, making for a comfortable wear on your wrist. The watch comes with a unique steel screwdriver attached to it.

Features
The Panerai PAM00557 has a water resistant mark to a depth of 100 metres, which protects the watch even in underwater activities. The scratch resistant Sapphire glass of the watch is very useful in protecting the dial window from any chanced scratches. The hand-wound mechanical movement of the watch is executed entirely by Panerai, 16 and half lignes, 21 jewels, and Glucydur balanced with 21,600 alterations per hour. The Panerai PAM00557 also has an Incabloc anti-shock device. The device comes with an amazing power reserve of 3 days.

 

Design
Officine Panerai time pieces are famed for their classic case backs and uncommon case designs. The Luminor 1950 case style is highly revered due to the vintage effect it derives from having the case side swept back gracefully. Some of the Luminor 1950 models are reminiscent of the vintage acrylic crystals as they display a unique dome shape crystal for their case style. The Luminor models appear with gentler curves whereas the Luminor 1950 timepieces ar familiarly straight edged. The models are available in two sizes: 44 mm and 47 mm and are styled for large wrists. The crown protecting device used to keep the crown free of damage and water is a Panerai Luminor identifier.


Popular Models
The Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT is a well rounded substantial watch model that features the brand’s famous P.9001 inhouse movement. It displays functions such as a power reserve display, a return-to-zero mechanism for the seconds hand triggered when the crown is pulled into the hand-setting position and a second time zone. A polished bezel with a pillow shaped case is very distinctive of this model. The Panerai Luminor 1950 PAM 321 is another classic edition set at a 44 mm case diameter with an elegant black alligator strap along with the model. The readability of the Luminor 1950 collection is highly acclaimed due to the sandwich dial construction with hour-markers that glow with a characteristic Panerai luminescence. The Luminor 1950 models are luxury time-pieces that vow never to go out of style.


Events
The Officine Panerai’s Luminor 1950 8 Day GMT Oro Rosso-44 mm was defined as one of the top 5 best watches at the 72nd Annual Golden Globes Ceremony held in Los Angeles on the 11th of January, 2015. It was also spotted on the wrist of Golden Globes presenter for the occasion and actor Chris Pratt who is a dear friend of the brand.

It may seem trivial, but it is an uncommon fact the amount of trouble a left handed person goes through while donning a watch on the right hand. Panerai recognized this early in their development as they observed commandos had to wear several wrist based equipment at once, resulting in them occupying the right wrist in addition to the left as well. Panerai decided to rectify this by designing a watch with its winding crown on the left side. The PAM00557 is a reminder of that design and is slightly different from your standard Luminor 1950 with its caseband having a cusped shape. This shape is reminiscent of the original cushion shape of the Radiomir and explains the story involved in the transformation from the Radiomir to the Luminor. Its minimalist black dial with soft and clear, luminous Arabic numerals and hour markers along with its trademarked crown protecting device, mark it as a cult watch. Its hand wound P.3000 calibre is housed in a massive 47mm polished steel case which is visible through its beautifully designed transparent case back.

Panerai is a Italian brand with long affiliation with the army .the brand creates masterpieces that are solid, rugged and robust for any terrain or conditions. The major invention is the Luminor: A particular lume that lasts longer.
The brand popularized by Sylvester Stallone,produces majority of the watches with 45mm case sizes and above. Stallone owns some 60mm huge watches. The 1950 left handed watch is a recreation of the world war 2 era.the markers and the hands are coloured to resemble the patina of old vintage ones. The left hand system for time setting is a tradition followed enabling easy access for pilots and war veterans to adjust time. The solid protection clasp is a common feature of every Luminor. The calfskin brown strap with white side stitches renders a military look but not finished to give that classic dress watch look.the movement is worth admiring and at par with Swiss standards.go for a caseback model.also the movement has a three day power reserve(a boon).compared to other watches,the model is not feature rich.

Final verdict: Recommended for military enthusiasts with a finesse for watches & of course able to afford one.
