In Depth

THE P.2004, A MOVEMENT MADE BY OFFICINE PANERAI, and an innovative machining process on the case make the Luminor 1950 Chrono Monopulsante 8 Days GMT Ceramica - 44 mm a key player in the history of fine watchmaking. It's an underwater watch like its predecessors, but with additional functions that make it both sporty and sophisticated. Manually wound, with eight days of power reserve and a power reserve indicator, the Luminor 1950 Chrono Monopulsante 8 Days GMT Ceramica also has a single-button chronograph and a second time zone with day/night indicator. All this in a case that, while remaining faithful to the unmistakeable Luminor design, is made of high-tech black ceramic, machined using an isostatic pressure process, making the structure extremely hard and highly resistant to temperature changes, corrosive agents, scrapes and scratches. The 44-mm diameter case is watertight to 10 BAR (~100 meters) and is made of zirconium oxide with an opaque finish, and bears the characteristic drawbridge. The screwed-in titanium back plate is coated with a special black treatment, and the sapphire crystal window shows off the manual P.2004 movement. On the left, a ceramic button starts, stops and resets the chronograph. The power reserve indicator is located above the 6 on the black dial, with a cursor that moves horizontally, while at 3 and 9 o'clock, respectively, are the chronograph's minute counter and the constantly moving small seconds dial.


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.


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.  


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.  


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. 


 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.
