The limited special edition for Bucherer Blue reflects Swiss watchmaking expertise combined with Italian design genius and Panerai’s maritime heritage. The sophisticated technology of a precision instrument with the masculine ruggedness of its ceramic case is paired with an understated elegance and cosmopolitan flair thanks to the new GMT function, one of Panerai’s most popular travel complications.
A true highlight of the Panerai Luminor GMT Bucherer Blue and a world premiere in Panerai’s history is the Super-LumiNova® coating that radiates in electric blue in the dark. The exclusive Bucherer Blue touch is also included in various subtle details on the timepiece: the small seconds hand, the GMT hand and the stitching on the strap have all been accentuated in electric blue. The rubberized blue crown is also a Bucherer Blue exclusive feature. The numbered case back adds an additional touch of exclusivity to this durable and functional timepiece.
Panerai has strong associations with the colour blue, which reflects its maritime heritage and the timepieces the company has created for different types of marine activities. To honour and maintain this legacy, Panerai is developing new, environmentally friendly products under the Panerai Ecologico label, such as both Panerai Luminor GMT Bucherer BLUE straps made from recycled PET bottles and a recycled ABS packaging shell, underlining the Maison’s commitment to sustainability.
