Officine Panerai Luminor Due timepieces are an elegant take on the original Luminor watch. The designs are classic but offer a number of modern characteristics that not only equip the wearer with nigh time visibility but also look stylish on the wrist when combined with smart or casual attire. Its incredibly thin case and stylish design make it a must-have dress watch to add to any enthusiast’s wristwatch collection, whether a lover of a mechanical watch or a devotee to the Panerai collection itself.
Luminor Due watches from Officine Panerai are equipped with impressive in-house developed movements – each one having been hand designed and hand assembled at the company’s ateliers in Neuchatel, Switzerland. Together, Panerai combine Italian elegance with Swiss technique to provide the wearer with unwavering accuracy that won’t falter under heat, moisture, shock or vibration impact. Some of the movements that sit at the heart of an Officine Panerai Luminor Due watch provide a 72 hour power reserve. This feature allows the lady or the gent the opportunity to take the watch away on vacation and have the option to alternate it with another favourite without worrying about whether it has kept accurate time whilst off the wrist. The power reserve ensures that the mechanism performs effortlessly and with precision whether on or off the arm. Other great features of a Luminor Due watch include an ultra-thin case which holds the movement at its centre without compromising on quality or reliability. It is these slim dimensions that make the Luminor Due watch such a great dress watch for wearing throughout the day and long into the night.
Some of the more lavish, top Luminor Due models are crafted from Panerai’s 18ct rose gold which showcases the company’s passion for creating innovative and elegant designs. Others crafted from 316L stainless steel are robust enough to be worn whilst partaking in all kinds of outdoor activities whilst still looking sophisticated and refined. The Officine Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days Oro Rosso watch is by far one of the most eye-catching designs from our collection here at Berry’s. It features a beautiful dark anthracite dial fitted onto a striking blue leather strap with a rose gold buckle that matches its luxurious case. The dial is familiar to the original Luminor design. The bold Arabic numerals at 12, 3 and 6 o’clock do a fine job of presenting the time when met with a chiselled central hand, coated with Panerai’s luminescent technology. The small seconds sub dial positioned at 9 o’clock on the dial has become a distinct characteristic of the Luminor Due watch, along with the beautiful cushion-shaped corners of the case.
For something a little more classic, the Officine Panerai Luminor Due 3 Days Acciaio watch is the perfect choice. It features a palpable black dial with visible hour indexes and central hands in a sand coloured finish. A sapphire crystal glass lens provides the perfect protection for the dial, preventing it from damage caused by debris, moisture sun and denting. The comfortable black leather strap with a steel buckle is perfect for wrapping around the wrist and combining with a smart office suit. With military-inspired aesthetics still present in the Panerai Luminor Due watch - the company manage to achieve a beautiful balance of vintage charm and technical prowess.
