The Luminor Due now appear in three striking new models, which confirm their innovative identity through an iconic dial on which only the Panerai logo appears. In terms of materials, a Luminor Due 38mm (PAM00926) appears for the first time in titanium. As for combinations, a Luminor Due – 42mm (PAM00927) is the first model of its size to associate a titanium case with an automatic mechanical movement. So far as solutions are concerned, the Luminor Due GMT Power reserve – 45mm (PAM000964) is Panerai’s first “45mm” watch, and it has an interchangeable strap with the Quick Release system.
Distinctive refinement, expressed in a more evidently informal character, is however the key to interpreting the three new Luminor Due watches perfected in the 38 and 42mm sizes and offered with a stainless steel or Goldtech™ case. Common to all are the radically revised dial designs, sophisticated and elegant with printed Arabic numerals and numbers while fully realising Panerai’s iconic level of visual language. The new style is complemented by the wide choice of personal leather straps which is available.
With these new models, Panerai introduces the P.900 Calibre with its thickness of 4.2mm, one of the thinnest automatic movements produced at the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. It is the first Panerai automatic watch of this diameter to have both a date display and a power reserve of three days, a fundamental solution it shares with the Luminor Due – 38mm (PAM00926 – PAM1043 – PAM1045) and the Luminor Due – 42mm (PAM00927 – PAM1046). Even greater mechanical sophistication is to be found in the P.4002 Calibre used in the Luminor Due GMT Power Reserve – 45mm (PAM000964). Twin time zones with dial-side power reserve indication and a 24-hour display with am/pm indicator are incorporated in a movement just 4.8mm thick.
