Testing Of Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic Acciaio -45mm Three Days Power Reserve Automatic Stainless Steel Watch

Panerai’s Luminor series always makes some people love and hate. Love is the sturdy pillow-shaped case; the large dial surrounded by the bezel; the integrally formed eye-catching lugs and the bridge protector that protects the crown from accidental impact by using pressure levers. These are unique Brand elements are always addictive. Hate is due to his too slender wrist, coupled with a heavy Luminor watch is always a little discordant.

 The emergence of Panerai Luminor Due has just brought the gospel to this part of the people. While loyal to the original classic aesthetics of Panerai Luminor watches, the thickness of the case is 40% thinner than the original. The iconic watch of Panerai.

 The Luminor Due 45mm three-day power reserve automatic watch is available in two materials, using AISI 316L stainless steel and 18ct red gold. The House of Watches recently got the stainless steel model (model: PAM00674), which has the same appearance as the previous Luminor 1950 case design, and has made some changes to make the lines more simple and smooth, thinner, and more wearable. Lighter and more versatile.

 The 45mm diameter case is all polished and polished. From the side, we can most intuitively feel the change in the thickness of the case. Only 10.7mm thickness is absolutely suitable for any wrist, and it can be easily incorporated into the cuff when worn between the wrists. No blocking feeling.

 The classic bridge of the crown has also been reduced in thickness, which is more exquisite in terms of look and feel.

 Panerai’s traditional sandwich-type dial is used. The black dial is decorated with solar radiation, using stick-shaped hour markers and digital display, and a small seconds dial at 9 o’clock, which is simple and easy to read. The ordinary luminous hour markers are coated with a fluorescent coating on the hollowed-out hour markers, while Panerai made the watch’s luminous display more obvious by adding a fluorescent layer panel to the dial.

 For Panerai, practicality is the brand style it has always adhered to.

   Panerai alligator leather straps adhere to strict standards and are more comfortable to wear than most watch brand straps. This watch is equipped with a pure black alligator leather strap with natural texture; it is also equipped with a polished pin buckle made of stainless steel and marked with ‘PANERAI’ on the outside.

 Equipped with P.4000 movement, it is also the brand’s first self-winding movement equipped with an eccentric miniature oscillating weight, completely developed and manufactured by Panerai Watch Factory in Neuchâtel. The use of eccentric rotor technology has significantly reduced the thickness of the movement. The thickness of the movement is only 3.95mm and the diameter is 31mm. The movement is equipped with a bridge plate with a two-way winding micro-rotor and balance plate on the side. The latter is equipped with double support, which is more secure and stable than the conventional single-support cantilever balance wheel splint. The support contains two screws for adjusting the upper and lower clearances of the balance axis. Two barrels in series give it a power reserve of at least three days. Horizontal matte modified bridge, blue engraved and tungsten alloy rotor, the matte surface is decorated with relief.

 For this watch, we also performed a six-direction accuracy test under full strings with professional instruments. At the same time, in order to give you a reference to watch friends, we have selected a man with the finest wrist in the editorial department to wear this watch for shooting. You can see the effect on the wrist.

 The wrist circumference of the editor is 15cm. There is no sense of weight when wearing this watch. Even if the watch diameter reaches 45mm, it is still not obtrusive. The watch can be easily incorporated into a formal shirt.

Summary: It can be said that the Luminor Due series has opened a whole new chapter for Panerai. As soon as the Panerai mentioned before, it reminds people of the inherent impression of rough and sporty. Its simple lines, smooth appearance and thinner and lighter case allow the wearer to enjoy the unique new experience of elegance, lightness and fashion while enjoying the unique personality of the brand’s traditional watches. This watch has been sold in China, and the official domestic price: 75,500 RMB. In addition to the 45mm Panerai watches, the Panerai Luminor Due series also has a 42mm style. It is also available in stainless steel and red gold. It is equipped with a Panerai P.1000 manual winding movement.

Which Is Better, Tudor Or Hamilton?

Brand comparison
  The German Hans Wilsdorf founded the famous Rolex watch brand in the early 20th century. In the 1930s, Rolex fully implemented the European-centric product promotion plan centered on the United Kingdom, but due to the high price, it was difficult for ordinary people to own. Hans Wilsdorf decided to produce a popular version of Rolex products, that is, products that are as good as Rolex products, but at a price that is acceptable to the general public. So Tudor was born.
  The name Tudor comes from the Tudor dynasty in England. It was the golden age of the United Kingdom, and its reputation was probably comparable to that of Chinese chastity. The Chinese name was excellently translated as ‘Tuo Duo’, and there is no doubt that the king’s style subdued by Wanfang. Thus, each Tudor series was named after the royal family. To this day, it is still the same, with outstanding quality, high style, watchmaking tradition respected by generations, and supreme and excellent watchmaking technology. Tudor is not just a wristwatch, it is a perfect masterpiece that gives the wearer a superior feeling.
  Tudor is a well-known Swiss watch brand with a style based on grace and elegance. To strengthen its international reputation, Tudor has established an unparalleled distribution network through high-end jewelers across five continents.
  Since its establishment and development in 1892, HAMILTON has been popular for its precise and durable practical functions and its consistent rugged, upright, innovative, bold and firm American design style. With more than 300 movies in Hollywood, the HAMILTON Hamilton Watch has become one of the most representative brands of American culture.
  In the history of the brand’s creation for more than a century, Hamilton has been writing and creating legends and glory. At the end of the 19th century, Hamilton’s first series of limited-edition Broadway (Broadway) limited editions, with unparalleled accuracy and reliability, put an end to a severe railway accident and started its journey as an excellent timer; in In the 1920s, Hamilton became a prestigious military watch supplier to the U.S. Army; the Yankee watch launched in 1928 established Hamilton’s leadership in American watch fashion; in the 1940s, During the Second World War, Hamilton stopped the manufacture of civilian watches, focusing on the production of special watches for the United States Army, Sea, and Air Forces. During the Second World War, the United States military provided a total of 1 million watches as timing tools, and about 10,000 others. The block Hamilton precision chronograph watch experienced the baptism of World War II; in 1957 Hamilton launched the world’s first electronic watch (battery-powered)-Ventura (Expedition); in 1971, Hamilton made The world’s first digital electronic watch, Pulsar, was born.
  The Hamilton brand has two major product lines-American Classic and Khaki Sport, both based on the brand’s American heritage, combining modern design and Swiss manufacturing technology to create masterpieces.
Comparison of brand positioning
  Tudor’s positioning is higher than Hamilton. Tudor belongs to the luxury brand, while Hamilton belongs to the people-friendly brand. This is most intuitively reflected in their price. Tudor prices range from 10,000 to 70,000, and the most popular models are around 20,000 and 30,000. The price of Hamilton ranges from 2,000 to 40,000, and the popular models are around 10,000 yuan.
Comparison of user reviews
  Comment 1: Tudor watches belong to Rolex company, using ETA movement, in the same level table, Tudor’s transformation of ETA is the best. Thick, solid, masculine, precise, durable, workmanship, and style look (will not be outdated for decades, unlike the ultra-thin watch of Longines, with age, it will feel thin and frivolous with time), The general point is that Tudor watches are very good and worth buying.
  Comment 2: belongs to the Rolex Group! Rolex has two brands! The first is Rolex! Using a self-produced movement, the second is Tudor! Most of them use the ETA’s 2824 and 2836 movements that have been polished by themselves! Be a cheap Rolex! Basically starting at 10,000 yuan
  Comment 1: It is a mid-range brand watch, and the workmanship and movement convenience are not bad. If you compare Tissot with the year-on-year, I personally think that HAMILTON is still better, and it is more on time. Now the market is still under development, and there are fewer fake watches. It is recommended that you do not need to be careful in other aspects if you want to start.
  Comment 2: This brand of watches is very good, the design style is very rough, very MAN type! And Longines are completely opposite styles! Although the brand is not in a grade, but the quality can not be said, very good!
  To sum up, Tudor is a grade higher than Hamilton, so the price will be much higher. Tudor watches are very positive, classic models are mostly, not fashionable or outdated. Hamilton’s watch has a military style, and its design is very rough. Which watch is good depends on personal preferences. If it is to show status, Tudor is more suitable. If it is to show personality and manliness, Hamilton is better. But no matter which watch it is, the quality is absolutely reliable.
