With its lean proportions and sharp styling, Panerai Luminor Due reinterprets the unmistakable shape and features of the iconic Luminor collection in a refined form that is equally suited to casual wear and elegant environments that call for elevated dressing. Originally a time-only model, a complication has been introduced to the collection for the very first time. The moon phase, among the most poetic complications, is the centrepiece of Luminor Due Luna—the final word in its name being the Italian word for moon, which appears on the dial. Available in four iterations, all in a 38mm that appeals to a broad spectrum of wearers, it promises to become a key pillar of the Luminor Due family. In each variation, the complication, situated at 3 o’clock, exhibits a rotating disc with a 24 carats moon against a starry midnight blue sky.

The various references have distinct aesthetic sensibilities that appeal to a broad audience. Luminor Due Luna Madreperla features a mother-of-pearl dial and case made from Panerai Goldtech™, an alloy containing platinum and a high percentage of copper; the combination endows the metal with a deep, red tone. Applied numerals and indexes with white Super-LumiNova™ appear on the dial, while a polished alligator strap is a lustrous finishing touch. The open caseback reveals the workings of automatic 3 days power reserve calibre P900/MP within.

Two Luminor Due Luna references—both with steel cases—feature white sun-brushed dials with the signature Panerai sandwich structure and beige Super-Luminova™ within their numerals, indexes, and hands. While one boasts a polished pink alligator strap (PAM01180), the other includes a Luminor Due steel bracelet whose links echo the profile of the trademarked Panerai crown-protection device, a quality accentuated by alternating polished and brushed finishes. Polishing along the edges of the curved links endows the bracelet with added dimension and refinement.

A final option, with a steel case, sun-brushed blue sandwich dial (PAM01179), and matching polished blue alligator strap, has a handsome monochrome presence.

Luminor Due features Calibre P900/MP, measuring only 5.9mm thick, is an automatic movement with a three-day power reserve.

Water-resistant to 3 bar (about 30 meters), Luminor Due Luna references (PAM01179, PAM01180, PAM01181) feature the quick release system to permit changing straps without using tools. Pressure applied to the back of the strap releases it from the case, and it can be replaced with equal ease. Building a collection of straps allows Luminor Due Luna to transform its appearance endlessly. And the introduction of Luminor Due satin straps, leather straps with a satin-like texture and sheen, further multiplies the options available to owners of Luminor Due Luna or any other watch from the Luminor Due family.

About Panerai
Founded in Florence in 1860 as a workshop, shop and subsequently school of watch-making, for many decades Panerai supplied the Italian Navy and its specialist diving corps in particular with precision instruments.
The designs developed by Panerai in that time, including the Luminor and Radiomir, were covered by the Military Secrets Act for many years and were launched on the international market only after the brand was acquired by the Richemont Group in 1997.
Today Panerai develops and crafts its movements and watches at its Neuchâtel manufacture. The latter are a seamless melding of Italian design flair and history with Swiss horological expertise. Panerai watches are sold across the world through an exclusive network of distributors and Panerai boutiques.
