Not Only Tough Guys Can Control Panerai Luminor Due To Break The Deadlock

Since the birth of Panerai in 1860, it has never been separated from the word ‘big’, large case, large dial, large strap, large bridge … even though many like Peifan People, however, have to stay away because of its exaggerated design. Some people have complained that Panerai’s style is too sporty, even if they love it, they can’t be perfectly integrated into formal clothes. It is true that Panerai’s previous four series are all heavy. For those who prefer thinner models, there is not much room for choice. Perhaps due to this consideration, Panerai launched in May this year. With an unprecedented new series-Luminor Due, this series broke the deadlock of Panerai’s ‘thin-thin watch’, and since then, formalwear people can also control Panerai.

 In this article, the editor will introduce a new Luminor Due series watch, the official model: PAM00675.

Panerai Luminor Due Model: PAM00675
Luminor Due ‘A New Territory’
 All along, Panerai has maintained four classic series: Radiomir, Radiomir 1940, Luminor, Luminor 1950. These major series have basically maintained the original essence of Panerai. Details reveal military style and Marine culture. The shape of the new Luminor Due is based on the previous Luminor 1950 case, including a pillow case, large dial, integrated lugs, and a crown bridge. While continuing the classic design, Luminor Due has also been changed. The lines of the watch are simpler, thinner, lighter, and more stylish. It is a versatile watch for formal, sports and leisure occasions. .

Crown bridge
 After touching the real thing, I found that the new Luminor Due watch is indeed a lot lighter and thinner than the previous models. It has no sense of weight at all, even on girls’ wrists. I still remember that at the new product preview scene, some people said: After waiting so long, Panerai finally has a thin section. Yes, Panerai is here to grab the wallet this time. Luminor Due has not lost the elements that Panerai should have, but has become more fashionable and temperament. Who can say that it is not in the market?

Red gold case

Case edges and lugs
 From the picture we can see that the Luminor Due case has become thinner and more lined, and the edges and corners are clearer, especially the lug part has become thinner and integrally cast with the case. According to official data, the new series models have a thickness reduction of nearly 40% compared to similar Luminor 1950 models. The diameter of the watch is also 45mm, but the thickness is only 10.7mm.

Carbon black dial

Luminous coating on hands and hour markers

 The dial still adopts a sandwich structure, with stick-shaped hour markers and digital displays, all covered with a luminous display coating, and a small seconds dial at 9 o’clock, which is simple in style and perfectly interprets Panerai’s style. But at the same time, the dial has also been completely new design, decorated with solar radiation pattern, compared to earlier models, more stylish and elegant, elegant temperament self-evident, this is very rare in Panerai watches, this It also explains that Luminor Due has opened a new fashion model for Panerai.

Black leather strap

Red gold pin buckle
 People who have seen the actual Panerai watch may have the same feeling. The feel and comfort of the strap are not comparable to many brands. This 675 is equipped with a pure black leather strap with natural texture and wear. Comfortable; it is also equipped with a red gold pin buckle with ‘PANERAI’ on the outside.

P.4000 self-winding mechanical movement
 Finally, let’s talk about the movement. The PAM00675 watch is equipped with a skeletonized P.4000 / 10 self-winding mechanical movement, which is more exquisite and more durable than P.4000. The 22ct. Studded in Paris, the bridge is embellished with a circular matte finish and gold-plated engraving. The most distinctive feature of this movement is the eccentric oscillating weight with two-way winding, which provides power for two hairspring barrels with long power reserve. The balance plate provides double support, which is more stable than a single cantilever balance machine plate. The core provides a power reserve of up to 3 days for the watch.
Summary: Luminor Due officially broke Panerai’s rude impression left over the years and opened up a ‘new territory’ with a new design. Since then, it is not only tough men who can navigate Panerai. Shirts, suits and tuxedos also have new partners. An elegant gentleman can wear it without fear to step into the door of the reception. This watch is currently available in China, with a reference price of RMB 181,000.
