5 February, 2016OFFICINE PANERAI CELEBRATES THE CHINESE NEW YEAR
Officine Panerai celebrates the Chinese New Year with the Luminor 1950 Sealand 3 Days Automatic Acciaio – 44mm (PAM00850), a Special Edition made in only 99 units, part of theseries created by Officine Panerai in honour of the signs of the Chinese Zodiac.
In the Chinese Zodiac, the Monkey symbolises virtues such as intelligence, eloquence and talent. Those born under the sign of the Monkey have a strong and clever personality but they are also honest and charitable.
The Luminor 1950 Sealand has a remarkable engraving on the steel cover of the dial, the subject being the Monkey. The case with the engraving of the monkey, on the inside of which is a little mirror, conceals a minimalist grey dial with a small seconds counter at 9 o’clock and a date window at 3 o’clock. The cover is fitted to a Luminor 1950 case (diameter 44 mm), which is made entirely of AISI 316L stainless steel with a brushed finish, as is the lever device which protects the winding crown.
The watch has a Panerai in-house calibre: the automatic P.9000 calibre, with a power reserve of 3 days.
