Panerai, the renowned luxury brand with Italian roots but made in Switzerland, has once again captivated watch enthusiasts with its latest creation – the Panerai Luminor Due with a striking radiated burgundy dial. At the heart of the Panerai Luminor Due is the 171-part P.900 automatic caliber measures a mere 4.2 mm in thickness. With 23 jewels and a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, the watch promises impeccable precision and reliability. The inclusion of the Incabloc® anti-shock device ensures the durability of the movement, even in the face of sudden shocks or impacts. The movement boasts three days of power reserve.
The 42mm polished steel case of the Panerai Luminor Due provides a perfect canvas for the mesmerizing burgundy sun-brushed dial. The luminous Arabic numerals and hour markers not only contribute to the watch’s legibility in low-light conditions, but also add a touch of sophistication to its overall aesthetic. The dial proudly showcases essential features such as small seconds, minutes and hours. Positioned at 3:00, the date aperture complements the overall symmetry of the dial, while the small seconds sub-dial at 9 :00 adds a dynamic element to the timepiece. The case back is solid stainless steel, as is the crown protector.
True to Panerai’s legacy of crafting robust timepieces, the Luminor Due is water-resistant to a depth of 50 meters. This feature ensures that the watch is not only a stylish accessory for formal occasions but also a reliable companion for everyday wear. At a time when the Chinese New Year is about to begin, Panerai’s use of a red dial for this watch is brilliant. The red dial version of the Panerai Luminor Due, which retails for $7,300, joins existing versions with white and slate colored dials.
