A challenging achievement of the new millennium, in keeping with the Panerai character, the Luminor Due continues its process of evolutionary adaptation. Technical, functional and formal. A landmark.

Perpetuating a traditional aesthetic signature by projecting it into the spirit of today. Maintaining creativity as it takes a new approach. In keeping with the genetics of the Luminor Due family, Panerai remains unconventional in its attitude and its predisposition. The new watches have been mechanically redesigned in terms of size and consequently they are innovative. Naturally inclined to change, today the Luminor Due with its new content is 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. Each one is original, and therefore part of a new chapter in the modern history of the brand.

Substantially thinner while completely respecting the classic design. A perfect historic compromise, the elegant proportions of 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. With the clear message of its unequivocal personality, its formal sophistication and its eclectic Italian style, the Luminor Due is continuing its bold exploration of unknown territories. And through structural improvements its range of features is becoming wider. In terms of materials, a Luminor Due 38 mm (PAM00926) appears for the first time in titanium. As for combinations, a Luminor Due – 42 mm (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 – 45 mm (PAM000964) is Panerai’s first “45 mm” 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 42 mm sizes and offered with a stainless steel or GoldtechTM 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.

In the perpetual pursuit of perfection, that of the Luminor Due is reflected in the careful refinement of the movement. The Manufacture movement is strictly mechanical, rigorously following Panerai’s demanding specifications, but from now on it will exclusively have automatic winding. This requirement is dictated by practical considerations, the need to reconcile the watch’s physical and aesthetic design with the challenge of dimensions, the main characteristic of the collection. This was the reason behind the introduction of the new P.900 Calibre with its thickness of 4.2 mm, 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 – 38 mm (PAM00926 – PAM1043 – PAM1045) and the Luminor Due – 42 mm (PAM00927 – PAM1046). Even greater mechanical sophistication is to be found in the P.4002 Calibre used in the Luminor Due GMT Power Reserve – 45 mm (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 4.8 mm thick.

Genetically predisposed to change, these new Luminor Due watches are supplied with interchangeable straps equipped with the Quick Release system. They are water-resistant to 3 bar (a depth of about 30 metres).

About Panerai

Founded in Florence in 1860 as a workshop, shop and school of watch-making, for many decades Panerai supplied the Italian Navy in general, 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.
