The Officine Panerai watch collection first emerged after the company presented a collection of three limited edition watches to a group of avid watch collectors. The designs were clean and modern-looking with minimal lines – the collection was called the Officine Panerai Luminor. Originally the watches featured a distinct cushion shaped case which has since been replaced by a middle case with squared lines. The polished bezel which sits on top of the middle case is that of a smooth perfectly round circle, which further tames the shape of the dial and case. With a much simpler form than the originals, these Officine Panerai watches have become one of the most popular designs from the company’s entire range. The winding crowns have been equipped with a sleek lever bridge which protects the mechanism from water damage. If you take a closer look at the lever bridge on the original designs, an engraved “Reg.tm” inscription can be seen. This has now been removed, and the shape and structure of the bridge itself is more squared. Luminor watches were first used for military purposes but have since been an obvious choice for those who can appreciate Panerai’s meticulously crafted designs and their in-house manufactured movements. As an official UK stockist of Officine Panerai Luminor watches, we welcome you to take a peruse through this excusive collection of handpicked favourites by us. From designs like the Officine Panerial Luminor 44mm rose gold watch with an impressive 8 day power reserve, to the Officine Panerai Luminor GMT 44mm watch with a 24 hour track and a small seconds counter – there is a style that can be found for everyone.
Some of Officine Panerai’s Luminor watches feature slimline cases integrated with impressive water resistant capabilities for protecting their in-house movements. Calibres like the P.5000 movement offer round-the-clock precision and an 8 day power reserve, making watches like the Luminor Base 8 Days Acciaio watch the perfect companion for taking away on vacation with you. Watches from the Luminor collection also feature durable sapphire crystal lenses equipped with anti reflective and scratch resistant properties. This sapphire glass lens offers the wearer the perfect crisp view into the dial without any undesirable glare affecting his time reading. The Officine Panerai Luminor Logo Marina watch has a distinct identity. The striking minimalist design is not only a decorative companion for the wrist, but also a functional tool for effortless reading of the time. The watch features a small seconds dial at 9 o’clock thanks to the P.6000 calibre – a hand wound mechanism with a useful power reserve of three days.
The Officine Panerai Luminor Base 8 Days Titanio is a design tailored to suit the needs of a modern, on-the-go gent. The legible dial is easy to access the time from at a quick glance thanks to a captivating brown dial with luminous coated Arabic hour indexes and hands. Officine Panerai inject the same Luminor characteristics into this design as they have done throughout the entire collection, like the minimalist layout of the dial and the classic dark brown alligator strap with off-white contrast stitching. The Officine Panerai watch collection is without a doubt, the perfect design for those gentlemen in need of a bold eye-catching tool that oozes technical appeal and guarantees Swiss excellence.
