The new Luminor Due – 42mm turns to gold. The case, the bezel, the Safety Lock™ crown protective device, the back and the buckle are formed of alchemy like fusions of Panerai Goldtech™, a special 18-carat gold alloy with an original composition which is notable for its high percentage of copper as well as the presence of platinum. The purpose of the copper is to give the colour intensity and depth, while the platinum is there to lower the tarnishing effects of oxidation. This elegant nonconformity is emphasised by the design of the dial. This is either black with a satiné soleil finish and sandwich structure (PAM01041), or white with luminous printed Arabic numerals (PAM01042).
The Luminor Due – 42mm in Goldtech™ has a mechanical movement with automatic winding. The new P.900 Calibre fits perfectly into the small size of the Luminor Due case. Visible through the sapphire crystal back, with its thickness of just 4,2mm it is today one of Panerai’s thinnest automatic movements. Entirely developed and assembled at the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, the automatic movement with such a small diameter, combines the functions of date, small seconds and a power reserve of three days. Water-resistant to 3 bar (a depth of about 30 metres) the new Luminor Due – 42mm watches are supplied with an interchangeable alligator leather strap fitted with the Quick Release system, and a Panerai Goldtech™ clasp buckle. The strap is black with tone-on-tone sewing (PAM01041), or dark brown with beige sewing (PAM01042).
