LUMINOR DUE 3 DAYS GMT POWER RESERVE AUTOMATIC ACCIAIO
Introduced at the SIHH 2018, this Beautiful Luminor Due offers :
a GMT / Power Reserve indicator / 24h indicator / Date & Micro-rotor!
PANERAI is one of the few brands in the Watchmaking industry that perfectly combines Elegance and Sportiness. On this particular case, i’m agree with the fact that it’s not a typical « Sport » timepiece… but i don’t think it really was the objective. I see it as a wonderful everyday piece with an indication for travelers/business people. It carries all iconic elements that we love in a Panerai (its case shape, sandwich dial, fonts, etc…) and interesting features like the Power reserve at 5 o’clock or the a.m/p.m indication at 9 o’clock (very useful because you can quickly see if the second time zone is in the day or night period). Right on top of it, you’ll find a small seconds hand.
100% in-house the calibre P.4002 is Superb!
Its off-centred micro-rotor and balance wheel are visible through the transparent case back and knowing that the amount of movements/timepieces produced is pretty high, i can only say « Bravo » for the level of quality delivered.
Finally, i want to mention that the thickness of its case is quite thin. During the last years, Panerai implemented thin cases within their collections. Some references are thin (like this one) and others not but at the end of the day, it’s always nice as a customer to be able to find your timepiece whether it’s a thick or thin one. Another reason to visit your best retailer or a Panerai flagship boutique! and you definitely should.
Well done! PANERAI.
