The Luminor Due Legacy Continues
Italian style shines in every Panerai timepiece, where timeless elegance and horological artistry converge in sophisticated detail. Panerai has once again showcased its commitment to horological excellence with the introduction of two new additions to the Luminor Due universe at Watches and Wonders Shanghai 2023. The Luminor Due family, which began its journey in 2016, is Panerai’s answer to urban Italian sophistication. It beautifully marries the brand’s historic features, such as the crown-protecting bridge and the distinct cushion-shaped case, with slimmer profiles, innovative materials, and a refined aesthetic to cater to the modern watch enthusiast.
Spotlight on the Luminor Due
The Luminor Due PAM01423 is a testament to Panerai’s ability to evolve while staying true to its roots. Set in a 42mm case, this timepiece introduces the allure of precious yellow gold to the Luminor Due line. The contemporary design is further accentuated with a green alligator strap that features scale ridges in a darker shade, adding a dynamic nuance. The dial, transitioning from a light center to a darker gradient at its edges, houses the date at 3 o’clock and a small second hand at 9 o’clock. These features are illuminated by white Super-Luminova® indexes that radiate a green glow in the dark. Powered by the automatic Panerai P.900 calibre, the watch boasts a three-day power reserve and 5-bar water resistance. This model is set to be an exclusive offering in Panerai boutiques.
Introducing the Luminor Due Luna TuttoOro
The Luminor Due Luna TuttoOro PAM01504 is a symbol of Panerai’s innovative spirit. Representing the Maison’s first moon phase model, it comes with a Panerai Goldtech™ bracelet, a unique alloy enriched with platinum and copper, giving the metal a deep, rich red tone. The bracelet’s design is inspired by the patented Panerai crown-protection device, with each link bearing the semi-oval profile of the safety-lock system. The 38mm case, crafted from Goldtech™, houses a mother-of-pearl dial. The moon phase complication, positioned at 3 o’clock, showcases a rotating disc with a moon set against a midnight blue sky adorned with stars. The open case back reveals the intricate mechanism of the automatic P.900/MP calibre, also with a three-day power reserve. Like its counterpart, this model will be exclusively available in Panerai’s flagship boutiques.
In conclusion, Panerai’s new releases at Watches and Wonders Shanghai 2023 are a testament to the brand’s dedication to innovation, craftsmanship, and heritage. Both the Luminor Due PAM01423 and the Luminor Due Luna TuttoOro PAM01504 are set to become iconic additions to the Luminor Due universe, further solidifying Panerai’s position in the world of luxury horology.
