Luminor Due Collection, the youngest product group of Officine Panerai, is under the spotlight with its most complicated (by now) model, PAM00944.
How stylish and elegant could a sporty model like Panerai Luminor can get without compromising the essence and the identity of the brand? The answer is; Panerai Luminor Due. You know from the first second that you are wearing a Panerai on your wrist.. But a more elegant, more naive than ever one. Don't get fooled by those elegant lines, it's still a true Panerai.
The model comes in a 45mm diameter stainless steel case that looks like a crown guard device added Radiomir 1940 case. Of course, the design is mainly inspired by the Luminor 1950 platform. The compact dimensions of the case increases the comfort to the top level. Luminor Due is as comfortable as a 45mm diameter sports watch can be. The mirror-polished surfaces highlight the model's elegance character but at the same time makes the watch prone to hairline scratches.
Beige colored Super LumiNOVA phosphor material applied hands and indices offers a great harmony with the anthracite sun-ray pattern dial. Since PAM00944 is the most complicated member of the collection, the dial is busier when compared to the rest of the collection. In addition to the hour and minute hands, there are also indicators for day/night, second time zone and power reserve situation. Obviously not the best choice for the users who like simple dials. The case is equipped with scratch-resistant sapphire crystals on both sides and is water resistant to 30 meters only due to the non-screw lock winding crown.
Officine Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days GMT Power Reserve Automatic Acciaio – 45mm is powered by the brand's manufacture movement Caliber Ref. P.4002. 31 jewels self-winding movement beats at a frequency of 4Hz (28.800vph) and offers a 72-hour (3 days) power reserve when fully wound. The movement attracts attention with its oscillating micro-rotor and can be enjoyed through the sapphire crystal display case back.
PAM00944 comes on a 24mm lug width brown alligator strap that is secured by a 22mm stainless steel standard pin buckle. Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days GMT Power Reserve Automatic Acciaio 45mm is available with a MSRP of 10,800 € at Officine Panerai.
