A synthesis of sophisticated elegance, historic roots and Italian design, since 2016 the Luminor Due has been the tangible expression of Panerai’s unceasing technical- aesthetic development. Today, the Luminor Due-42mm turns to gold with the Panerai Goldtech taking center stage.
The case, the bezel, the Safety LockTM crown protective device, the back and the buckle are formed of alchemy-like fusions of Panerai GoldtechTM—a special 18-carat gold alloy with an original composition which is notable for its high percentage of copper as well as the presence of platinum. The purpose of the copper is to give the color intensity and depth, while the platinum is there to lower the tarnishing effects of oxidation.
It has a mechanical movement with automatic winding and meets the requirement of being very practical and suitable for everyday use, while at the same time being a watch which is visually superb.
Powering the watch is the new P.900 Calibre, which fits perfectly into the small size of the Luminor Due case. Visible through the sapphire crystal back, with its thickness of just 4.2 mm it is today one of Panerai’s thinnest automatic movements. Entirely developed and assembled at the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, the automatic movement with such a small diameter, combines the functions of date, small seconds and a power reserve of three days.
Water-resistant to 3 bar the new Luminor Due – 42 mm watches are supplied with an interchangeable alligator leather strap fitted with the Quick Release System and a Panerai GoldtechTM clasp buckle. The strap comes in black with tone-on-tone sewing or dark brown with beige sewing.
