The new Panerai Lumior Due are acquiring a more pronounced identity. Leading the way, on the one hand there are three new models sharing the brushed titanium of the case and the blue satiné soleil finish of the dial. On the other hand, there are three updated models of varied character, embodying a consistent array of style and versatility. All of them are united in being fitted with mechanical Manufacture movements and quickly changeable straps.
In terms of materials, a Luminor Due 38mm (PAM926) appears for the first time in titanium. As for combinations, a Luminor Due – 42mm (PAM927) 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 (PAM964) is Panerai’s first “45mm” watch. The three further Luminor Due watches in the 38 and 42mm sizes are 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.
The Manufacture movement is strictly mechanical, rigorously following Panerai’s demanding specifications, but from now on it will exclusively have automatic winding. For the Lumior Due line, Panerai introduces the new P.900 Calibre with its thickness of 4.2mm, one of the thinnest automatic movements produced at the 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 (PAM926 – PAM1043 – PAM1045) and the Luminor Due – 42mm (PAM927 – PAM1046). Even greater mechanical sophistication is to be found in the P.4002 Calibre used in the Luminor Due GMT Power Reserve – 45mm (PAM964). 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.
