Panerai - Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic 45mm

Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic 45mm

Panerai has just unveiled two new Luminor Due 45mm, in steel and titanium.

A couple of days ago, we have presented the new Luminor Due 42mm. But Panerai has also added two 45mm models to the Luminor Due collection: a version in titanium, with a blue dial and an alligator strap of the same colour (PAM00729) and a model in AISI 316L stainless steel, with an anthracite dial and a brown alligator strap (PAM00739). Water resistant to 30m, both watches use the P.4000 automatic calibre, and compared to the Luminor 1950 model of the same size, they are significantly thinner and lighter. 

In perfect Panerai style, the dial of the new Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic has the sandwich structure, satiné soleil finish and minimalist design, with figures at the cardinal points, bar hour markers and the small seconds counter at 9 o’clock.

The P.4000 calibre is one of the most sophisticated movements from the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtelclearly. Visible through the sapphire crystal opening in the caseback, the movement includes an off-centred micro-rotor which rotates in both directions, winding up the two spring barrels which can store a power reserve of three days. The balance bridge is the type with twin supports, safer and stronger than the usual cantilever bridge, and the watch also has the device which stops the balance when the winding crown is pulled out, so that the watch can be perfectly synchronised.

In the steel version of the Luminor Due, the P.4000 calibre is the P.4000/10 skeletonised version, with an oscillating weight of 22-carat gold decorated with clous de Paris and skeletonised bridges, with circular brushed finish and gilded engraving. In the titanium model, the oscillating weight is made of tungsten, a material very suitable for this purpose because of its high specific weight.

Thanks to the ingenious structure of the calibre and the work of the designers, the thickness of the case has been reduced by almost 40% (10.7 mm), while preserving the watch’s sturdiness and functionality, and leaving its distinctive design unchanged.
