GUILLAUME NÉRY, PROFESSIONAL FREE DIVER
Exploring the depths with Luminor Submersible
As far as he can remember, Guillaume Néry has always been fascinated by the sea. Specialized in the queen of all freediving disciplines (constant weight), he broke the freediving world record four times, in 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2008 and won the world champion title twice, in 2008 and 2011. But his passion goes far beyond the mere realm of sports. Freediving has become a true way of life to him. Today retired from the competition, he keeps on training and diving like a professional. He now devotes himself to transmitting his passion to others and to exploring the wonders of nature still hidden in the undersea world. Guillaume is a Panerai Ambassador since 2018 and he wears a Divers Professional watch that can accompany him during all his explorations: the Luminor Submersible 1950 Amagnetic 3 Days Automatic.follow

JASON M. PETERSON, INSTAGRAM LEGEND
Chasing light with Luminor Due
”I walk around, I shoot and post two pictures every single day. That’s what I do”, he humbly says to explain his work as a photographer. The least one can say is that he’s successful at doing it.

Deeply influenced by classic 40’s and 50’s photographers, he manages to capture amazing light and shades within powerful urban landscapes compositions. He compares his art to an endless hunt: he could be waiting for ever for the perfect light and timing to happen. His love for what is classic and timeless and his obsessive attention to small details dovetail perfectly with Panerai’s brand values and aesthetics. His fascination for Light made him choose Luminor Due.follow
LUMINOR DUE 3 DAYS AUTOMATIC ACCIAIO – 45MM PAM00674
The Luminor Due arises in a territory where elegance rhymes with the authentic history of Panerai. Originally created to be used deep underwater, Panerai watches are known for their unparalleled legibility and luminosity in the dark. Inspired by the constant pursuit of Innovation, Panerai reduces the thickness of one of its legendary watches, the Luminor 1950, while leaving its functionality and distinctive design unchanged. Once again, history comes to light with the new Luminor Due.

RADIOMIR 1940 3 DAYS AUTOMATIC ACCIAIO – 45MM PAM00572
A design can be timeless. It can be a witness and protagonist of the period in which it was born but at the same time it is still contemporary. It is a design classic. Since its creation, the Radiomir 1940 combined solidity, reliability and functionality with a design of absolute modernity, simple and quintessential elegance. The Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic Acciaio (PAM00572) combines the purity of its lines with the refined technology of the P.4000 automatic calibre, the first mechanical movement created by the Panerai Manufacture with an off-centre micro-rotor.
MASSIMO BOTTURA, ITALIAN CHEF
Innovating upon tradition, with Luminor 1950
“Cooking is not only about the quality of the ingredients. It’s also about the quality of the ideas”, he says to explain his very personal approach to his work as a Chef. An innovator for over twenty years, Massimo Bottura has recently consolidated his reputation as one of the most creative culinary figures in the world. His internationally renowned three Michelin Star restaurant, Osteria Francescana, was named number 1 on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list in 2016. Massimo Bottura’s dishes are a hymn to traditional Italian cuisine, which he never ceases interpreting and reinventing. He always walks on that thin line between tradition and innovation. That’s probably the reason why he chose Panerai’s Tuttonero - Luminor 1950 3 Days Automatic Ceramica.follow
TUTTONERO - LUMINOR 1950 3 DAYS GMT AUTOMATIC CERAMICA - 44MM PAM00438
Faithful to the Panerai identity and design, the Tuttonero - Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT Automatic Ceramica is entirely made of matt black ceramic: a watch with extraordinary aesthetic impact, constructed using the most advanced technologies in the field of materials. By means of a complex series of working and finishing processes, the Ceramic used by Panerai to create the Tuttonero acquires a particularly uniform and even appearance combined with a high degree of hardness (up to five times greater than that of stainless steel), as well as being resistant to scratches, corrosive agents and high temperatures. These characteristics have made ceramic one of the materials of choice in the world of haute horlogerie and make the Tuttonero the ideal watch for the wrist of a great Chef like Massimo Bottura.
