Panerai Luminor Due 42mm
Two new 42mm models, in titanium or red gold, enhance the Luminor Due collection which represents the most contemporary interpretation of the Panerai design.
Panerai has just launched four new Luminor Due models, two new Luminor Due 45mm, with manual-winding movement and three-day power reserve, and two Luminor Due 42mm, in titanium or red gold. We present today the two Luminor Due 42mm.
First presented in 2016, the case of the Luminor Due, inspired by the Luminor case of the 1950s but elegantly redesigned, is the thinnest and most versatile of those created by Panerai.
The new Luminor Due 3 Days, available in brushed titanium with a polished bezel (PAM00728) or in polished red gold (PAM00741), has a 42mm case measuring only 10.5 mm thick, almost 40% less than the models of the same diameter in the Luminor 1950 collection. The reduction in thickness makes the watches much more versatile and suitable for even the most elegant occasions, without altering the identity, proportions and distinctive features of the iconic case and its classic bridge with the lever device protecting the winding crown.

The dial of the new Luminor Due 3 Days, extremely legible even when there is little or no light, has a minimalist design in which the small seconds hand at 9 o’clock stands out, another aspect typical of many Panerai vintage watches. In the titanium model the dial is blue, with the sandwich structure and satiné soleil finish, while that of the red gold model is a sophisticated ivory colour with contrasting blue figures.

The back encloses a porthole protected by sapphire crystal, through which one can admire the P.1000 movement, handwound with a power reserve of three days, entirely made in the Panerai Manufacture. In the Luminor Due 3 Days Oro Rosso the calibre is the sophisticated, skeletonised P.1000/10 version. The large brush-finished bridge has been worked to enable much of the mechanism to be seen, including the two spring barrels, and the balance beneath the bridge mounted on twin supports to ensure greater reliability and stability. The P.1000 movement also includes the device which stops the balance and zeroes the seconds hand when adjusting the time, for perfect synchronisation of the watch with a reference time signal.

The two new Luminor Due 3 Days watches have blue alligator straps – darker for the titanium model, lighter for the model in gold – and they are water resistant to 30 metres. The soft strap is easily and quickly replaced thanks to the system patented by Panerai which enables the strap bar to be removed easily by means of a little push-piece positioned under one of the lugs.
Representing a blend of Italian design with Swiss watchmaking technology, Officine Panerai follows the inspiration of its home city of Florence, which was the cradle of the Renaissance movement and all the art and science for which it was famous.Find out more
