Panerai launches new collection inspired by the nautical world
The dials of the Panerai watches in this exclusive series seem to have arisen from an encounter between the sea and the light, another identifying element of the brand. They are all an intense blue colour and they have been made even more attractive by the satiné soleil finish, a process which catches the light and diffuses it, thus creating subtle flashes and fascinating, ever-changing effects, like those caused by the rays of the sun and the waves of the sea.
Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT Automatic
The blue dial with satiné soleil finish of the new Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT Automatic blends perfectly with its blue leather strap with contrasting ecru stitching, emphasising the naval inspiration of this model. The Luminor 1950 case is made of polished AISI 316L stainless steel and it is 42 mm in diameter, a versatile size suitable for all occasions, while the bridge device with the sealing lever protecting the winding crown helps to ensure that it is water-resistant to 10 bar (a depth of about 100 metres).
Fitted with the in-house P.9001 automatic calibre, with a power reserve of three days, the new Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT Automatic has a range of invaluable functions which are both easy to use and legible: the date at 3 o’clock; the GMT function for indicating the time in a second time zone; the power reserve display on the back, visible through the sapphire glass window which also enables the movement to be admired.
Luminor 1950 10 days GMT Automatic
The new Luminor 1950 10 days GMT Automatic combines the elegant sports appearance of the blue dial and its satiné soleil finish with the remarkable technology of the P.2003 automatic calibre with a power reserve of at least ten days, date, GMT function with am/pm indication, seconds reset, and the device for quickly adjusting the hour hand. It is a remarkable concentration of watchmaking technology fitted in a case of unmistakable Panerai design.
Radiomir 1940 3 Days
The purity of the Radiomir 1940 design in its most authentic version is clothed in blue and it sparkles with reflections of the sea in the Radiomir 1940 3 Days, the new creation of the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, available exclusively in Panerai boutiques throughout the world.
The Radiomir 1940 case is made of polished AISI 316L stainless steel and it has the classic diameter of 47 mm, typical of period Panerai watches.
The dial is blue with satiné-soleil finish and sandwich structure, and it too is presented in its classic version with large hour-markers and the subsidiary small seconds dial. The hands are gilded and create a harmonious effect with the ecru colour of the Super-LumiNova®, which ensures legibility at night, and the natural colour of the Assolutamente strap in untreated leather on which the OP logo has been hot-pressed.
The Radiomir 1940 3 Days is fitted with the Manufacture P.3000 calibre, hand-wound with a power reserve and three days, which is clearly visible through the sapphire glass window in the back.
Radiomir 1940 10 Days Automatic Oro Rosso
The Radiomir 1940 10 Days Automatic Oro Rosso is the most precious creation in the series of watches with blue satiné-soleil dials, made exclusively for Panerai boutiques throughout the world. The classic Radiomir 1940 design is executed in red gold and it is fitted with the Manufacture P.2003/10 calibre, rich in technical features and finely finished.
Designed, produced and decorated in the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, the P.2003/10 movement is Officine Panerai’s first skeletonised automatic movement, a magnificent synthesis of art and technology, of form and content.
The case of the new Radiomir 1940 10 Days GMT Automatic, 45 mm in diameter, is made of 5NPt red gold with a polished finish; this is an alloy with a high percentage of copper which gives the 18-carat gold an elegant reddish colour, and it contains a small percentage of platinum which helps to prevent oxidation. The watch is guaranteed water-resistant to 5 bar (a depth of 50 metres).
