Which watch is to be recognized from a distance of 10 meters? Only Panerai! Panerai Luminor collection is the type of model you either love or hate. You love it because of its sturdy cushion-shaped watch case. All-in-one-shaped lugs and a device protecting the crown are iconic elements. You hate it because powerful watch case of the Luminor watch is not suitable for your slender wrists.
The appearance of the Luminor Due collection gives those who want to wear Panerai watches on their slender wrists a hand. The Luminor Due pays homage to classic aesthetics of the Luminor collection, but its watch case is 60 present thick than that of the Luminor collection. In brief, the Luminor collection expresses lighter and slimmer watch case and classic aesthetics perfectly. Available in AISI 316L stainless steel edition and 18ct red gold. Take the Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic Acciaio steel watch-45mm an example, and introduce it fully.
Its exterior appearance inherits classic design features of the Luminor 1950, but the design for more simple lines and less thick watch case makes the luminor Due light-weight and more easy-matching.
With polishing process, watch case appears smooth and bright. Its thickness can be seen clearly and directly from the side. 10.7mm-thick watch case is absolutely appropriate for all wrists, and can be hidden in the cuff, unimpeded.
The classic device protecting the crown becomes less thick as well, more delicate and finer.
The black dial bears sun-brushed pattern, stick & Arabic numerals hour markers and a 60-second counter at 9 O’clock. In general, hollow-out hour markers are coated with luminescent material. As for Panerai, a luminescent disk was added between two dials so that the dial reaches a better luminescent effect in the dark condition. That is called Sandwich-structured dial. For Panerai, practicality is the brand style it has always insisted on.
Panerai Alligator skin watchband follows strict producing rules, so it brings wearers good wearing experiences. The Luminor Due 3 Days reference PAM00674 matches with the black Alligator skin watchband with polished pin buckle in steel marked with “Panerai”.
The Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic watch is equipped with calibre P.4000, the first automatic movement with an off-centre micro-rotor completely developed and made in the Panerai Manufacture at Neuchâtel. Thanks for off-centre micro-rotor technology, thickness of P.4000 calibre was reduced markedly. 3.95mm-thick movement for 31mm diameter has a large bridge which is flanked by the small oscillating weight winding in both directions and the balance cock. The latter has twin supports, stronger and more stable than the customary overhanging balance cock with a single support. Two tandem barrels provide the watch with at least 3-day power reserve.
For its accuracy, I and my team adjust it with specialized instrument in six positions (crystal up, crystal down, crown down, 12 O’clock position down, 9 O’clock position down and 6 O’clock position down). You can refer to the chart.
