Officine Panerai has built a close link with large size since it was born. Panerai watch bears large-size watch case, large dial, big device protecting the crown, large watchband and so on. Frankly speaking, it’s the powerful elements that Panerai watch fans love. Only Panerai is to be recognized from a distance of 10 meters. Too thick watch case isn’t appropriate for business style. To fill the vacancy of dress watch, Panerai made changes on the design for thickness of a watch case, colors of a dial and collocation. Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days Titanio-42MM Blue PAM00728 became another member of the Luminor Due collection, whose arrival supplies more choices for Panerai fans. The clever collocation matte titanium watch case and dark blue dial, watchband stands out urban and elegant taste.
1. Lighter and Thinner
Inspired by classic elements of Panerai antique watches, Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days Titanio-42MM PAM00728 inherited simple but powerful style, including cushion-shaped watch case, large-size dial, and all-in-one-shaped lugs and the device protecting the crown. With more simple lines, thinner case and more stylish dial, reference PAM00728 is easy-matching with formal, casual and sport outfits. Comparing with steel case, 42mm matte case in titanium has lighter, firmer and more durable property. From the sides of the watch, smooth and well-polished bezel and matte case in titanium show distinctive luster and effect. 10.5mm-thick case makes you match easily with shirts and suits.
2. Blue Sunray Dial
Satin Sun-brushed dial in dark blue presents elegant and excellent temperament in the sun. The design for sandwich dial makes green luminescent light stand out in the dark conditions. Clean, clear and simple dial embodies classic style of Officine panerai.
3. P.1000 calibre
P.1000 calibre is an in-house hand-wound mechanical movement of a power reserve of 3 days. Glucydur® balance and KIF Parechoc® anti-shock device ensure maximum security and stability. It also contains the device which stops the balance and zeroes the seconds hand (seconds reset) when setting the time, for perfect synchronization of the watch with the reference signal.
4. Dark Blue Alligator-skin Strap
Dark blue alligator-skin strap was finished with dark blue stitching, beautiful and elegant. With titanium pin clasp marked with “Panerai”, the strap presents luxury and gentle charm.
1. High Price
I can’t believe that the elegant dress watch is equipped with a hand-wound mechanical movement, and its pricing is a little high. In addition to beautiful design and classic elements, its movement features little. In a word, I think a low-tech Panerai watch isn’t worth it.
2. 30-meter Water Resistance
Isn’t the large device protecting the crown used to reach deeper waterproof effect? Why is the watch PAM00728 water resistant to 3 bar / 30 meters? Officine Panerai, why don’t you add some technical elements to your watches? Will you use your large-size watch case to compete with Rolex, Hublot, Omega or else?
