Panerai Luminor Due PAM00926 & PAM00927

Panerai create instantly recognisable, iconic watches that don’t tend to deviate from the brands core design language. For the new Luminor Due collection it is business as usual in an aesthetic sense, however a change in movement has had a ripple effect on the design.  Comprising of six new models, the numerous case variants include brushed titanium, stainless steel and Panerai’s patented Goldtech which are paired with two dial options, a blue satiné soleil sandwich dial or white with beige printed Arabic numerals.

With the exception of the PAM00964, all of these watches are equipped with Panerai’s new P.900 calibre, their thinnest to date. Measuring just 4.2mm thick it also boasts a substantial three day power and is likely to be Panerai’s new entry level calibre. The collection moves in a modern direction in terms of case size too,  thanks to its svelte movement the watches are significantly thinner than previous models and all come with quick-change straps.

These two titanium cased watches make up the core of Luminor Due models and are identical except for their size. The PAM00927 is 42mm while the PAM00926 is just 38mm, which when paired with the thinner case is borderline dainty for the Florentine brand. Each come on matte blue alligator straps with matching stitching. The PAM000926 is priced at €6,700 Euros while the PAM000927 costs €7,000.

At 45mm, the PAM00964 is powered by Panerai’s in-house calibre P.4002 which features a second time zone, am/pm display at 9:00 and a power reserve indicator. It is essentially the bigger more complicated brother of the previous models and at €11,800 you’re paying for those extra complications.

The PAM1043 and PAM1046 are essentially the same again but in different sizes, measuring 38mm and 42mm respectively. Both feature the same 3 o’clock date display as all the range but these wear an off-white dial, beige Arabic numerals and brown strap options, creating a fresh yet vintage colourway. As these are steel they are the most accessible, priced at €5,900 and €6,200.Panerai Luminor Due PAM01043 & PAM01046

The final and most expensive of the new collection is the PAM1045. The 38mm case uses Panerai’s patented Goldtech material, an 18k rose gold alloy which contains more copper than your usual mixture giving it a reddish hue. This is complemented with a red alligator strap and despite being aimed at women, slender wristed males will be tempted.
