Panerai, a pioneer in oversized, really bold and masculine watches designed in a much-loved vintage style has “downsized” its collection quite a bit lately – which becomes apparent when you look at the intriguing Luminor Due collection. A splendid Panerai Luminor Due collection is aiming to meet the challenging demands of a 21st century enthusiast and audience that calls for both functionality and formality in the same timepiece. Meet Panerai Luminor Due 42mm, with distinctive anthracite dial.
The cushion case is made entirely of AISI 316L stainless steel, a steel alloy with high corrosion resistance.
An anthracite dial is constructed in the familiar Panerai sandwich fashion, offering large luminous Arabic numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock.
Finished off with brown leather strap with contrasting beige stitching, that also features the quick release strap changing system, Luminor Due is perfect accessory.
Since its foundation in a small workshop in Florence in 1860, Panerai’s reputation has never strayed too far from the restless sea.
All elements originate directly from history of the brand and they have all been subtly redesigned to emphasise the versatility of a watch which represents a synthesis of the sporting spirit and the ability to wear it in more elegant occasions.
The anthracite dial is embellished with green details and hour markers, enriching the sense of color on the dial. With a leather strap that is lined with beige contrast stitching, Luminor Due shows a fashionable and elegant character.
Panerai Luminor Due 42mm make a fabulous option for men who prefer their timepieces on the less oversized side. This timepiece displays the date at 3 o’clock and the subsidiary seconds at 9 o’clock. This particular model caters to the many aficionados who want to own a unique watch that has the look of the iconic predecessor but can be worn for all occasions.
From its famed crown-protecting bridge to the unique sandwich-style dials and the characteristic case design, these timepieces exude modernized vintage styling at its best. The P.900 is a new in-house automatic that’s only 4.2mm thick. It contains a power reserve of 3 days.
Underlining its unisex and versatile appeal, the Tudor 1926 collection comes in four sizes - 28mm, 36mm, 39mm, and 41mm, so there is one to suit just about every wrist.
It was just a bit over a year ago that Rolex launched a new website under Rolex.org, dedicated to perpetuating the Founding Spirit of Rolex, as inherited from the man behind the Crown.
When craftsmanship and exclusive material come together, that is when timeless beauty really starts to impress.
