The Luminor Due case is a new chapter in the history of Panerai. It is the result of a challenge successfully overcome by the designers and engineers of the Florentine brand: to offer enthusiasts a reinterpretation of the brand’s iconic watch, the Luminor 1950, which is absolutely faithful to the original design but with more contemporary aesthetics, achieved by a reduction in the thickness of the case compared to the historic one, a reduction of up to 40% for some models. The lines of the Luminor Due are inspired by the Luminor 1950 case, which represents the culmination of the Panerai creations made for the Italian Navy from the 1930s to the 1950s. The ingredients are the ones well known to every connoisseur of high quality watchmaking: the robust cushion case, the large dial surrounded by the bezel, the strong integrated lugs and the bridge-shaped device which seals the crown with a lever and protects it from accidental shocks. All the elements originate directly from the history of the brand and they have all been subtly redesigned to emphasise the versatility of a watch which is a perfect synthesis of the sporting spirit and the ability to wear it for more elegant and special occasions. A combination of distinctive design and sophisticated watchmaking technique.
