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.
