HISTORY COMES TO LIGHT.
"The lines of the Luminor Due are inspired by the Luminor 1950 case, which represents the culmination of the Panerai creations. 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 synthesis of the sporting spirit and the ability to wear it for more elegant and special occasions."
The gold used by Panerai is a special alloy, different from standard gold. Panerai goldtech 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 gold alloy, as it helps to prevent the metal from oxidising.
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.Discover calibre
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.
