In Depth

The new Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic is the first watch in the LUMINOR DUE collection with automatic winding and it contains one of the most sophisticated movements made by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, the P.4000 calibre with decentralised micro-rotor. Compared to the similar Luminor 1950 models already in the collection, the ingenious structure of this calibre and the work of the designers has enabled the thickness of the case to be reduced by about 40% (10.7 mm), while maintaining the solidity, strength and functionality of the watch and leaving its distinctive design unchanged. Immediately recognisable by the iconic bridge device protecting the winding crown, the case is available in red gold, for those who prefer a version which is particularly suitable for more formal situations. . The design of the dial, with its sandwich structure, is minimalist, in perfect Panerai style: figures at the cardinal points, bar markers corresponding to the hours and an auxiliary small seconds dial at 9 o’clock. The new Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic has the P.4000 caliber in the fascinating, precious, skeletonised P.4000/10 version. Its 22-carat gold oscillating weight having Clous de Paris decoration. The bridges have circular brushed finish and gilded engraving, and they are skeletonised to allow a large part of the movement to be seen, every detail being clearly visible through the large porthole in sapphire glass which opens on the back of the case. The Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic is supplied with a black alligator strap. It is water-resistant to 3 bar (about 30 metres).

Materials

Red Gold

Red gold is an alloy composed of gold, copper and other metals, and due to its technical properties and elegant appearance, it is an ideal material for use in fine watchmaking. The red gold used by Officine Panerai is a special alloy, different from standard red gold, called 5Npt.

Panerai 5Npt has a percentage of copper giving the material an intense red hue that is particularly elegant and sophisticated. Platinum is another fundamental element of the Panerai red gold alloy, as it helps to prevent the metal from oxidising. 5Npt has another important property: it has a high mechanical resistance than standard pink and yellow gold. It is the perfect material for Panerai high-end watches.

Maintenance

Panerai watches are produced to very high standards of quality. It is worth remembering that the mechanical parts run 24 hours a day when used, so the watch must undergo regular maintenance to ensure long life and good operation.

WATER-RESISTANCE 

Have watch checked periodically for water-resistance by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre and renovate it every two years with regular servicing, or whenever the watch has to be opened. The restoration of water-resistance necessarily involves replacing the seals in order to ensure the maximum water resistance and protection. Where the watch is used in underwater sports activities, it is recommended that it should be checked every year before the underwater activities begin.  

THE MOVEMENT 

Have the movement of watch checked periodically by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre in order to preserve its perfect operation. If the watch has a tendency to gain or lose time to a significant degree, the movement may need to be overhauled. The movements are designed to withstand temperature variations between -10°C and +60°C (14°F and 140°F). Outside this range of temperatures, operational variations exceeding those set out in the specifications of the movement may be noticed. In addition, there is a risk that the lubricants contained in the movement may deteriorate, resulting in damage to some of its parts.  

CLEANING THE EXTERIOR

To keep the exterior in perfect condition, we recommend washing Panerai watch with soap and warm water, using a soft brush. After this operation, and also after immersion in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the watch with fresh water. All Panerai watches can be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth. 

THE STRAP

 Panerai straps must be washed in warm water and left to dry. It is important not to dry them on a hot surface or expose them to direct sunlight, because the rapid evaporation of the water could damage their shape and quality. After each immersion in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the strap with fresh water. It is recommended that the strap and the buckle should be replaced by an Authorized Distributor or a Panerai Service Centre, in order to avoid any problems caused by incorrect replacement. Only an Authorized Distributor or Panerai Service Centre can guarantee the use of genuine Panerai straps, properly designed to fit the dimensions of the case and manufactured according to the quality standards of the brand. All alligator leather used by Officine Panerai comes from farms in Louisiana, USA. Officine Panerai’s suppliers have committed to the highest standard of responsibility and have given their assurance that such farms in Louisiana contribute to the stable growth of wild alligators, thus protecting this endangered species. Panerai does not use leather coming from endangered species taken from the wild.

Movement

P.4000/10 calibre

The P.4000/10 calibre is the fascinating, precious, skeletonised version of the P.4000 calibre,the thinnest automatic calibre developed by the Panerai Manufacture. The most distinctive feature of this calibre is the decentralised micro-rotor in 22-carat gold oscillating weight having Clous de Paris decoration which rotates in both directions, feeding energy into the two spring barrels which accumulate a power reserve of three days. The balance bridge is the type with twin supports, more secure and stronger than the single cantilever balance cock, and the watch also has the device which stops the balance wheel when the winding crown is pulled out, for synchronising the time perfectly. The bridges have circular brushed finish and gilded engraving, and they are skeletonised to allow a large part of the movement to be seen, every detail being clearly visible through the large porthole in sapphire glass which opens on the back of the case.
