The thing that is next? ” is the question that’s been on the mouth area of the nation – or at least those concerned Panerai fans, who to date had to wonder what the next frontier may be for their beloved brand. The Luminor undoubtedly is the more popular and successful among Panerai Luminor Due 42 3 Days collections – arguably paling the Radiomir in comparison – and while the brand has not shied away from releasing myriads of different iterations, the time has come for them today to release Luminor’s chapter due. Your Panerai Luminor Due 40 3 Days, with the new and in fact thinnest Luminors ever, the actual PAM676 and PAM677 pieces. Let’s dig in if the due call is warranted.
Due (pronounced “doo-eh”) stands for to “two” in Italian language, and that quite clearly marks how De la firme is launching the second section Luminor case. Wow. The name of the game is thickness – or rather the very lack of it. The actual Panerai Luminor Due situation, in some instances, can be 40% thinner than the comparable Luminor Uno (no, they have not started calling them that).
Panerai is quick to stress, though, that “the ingredients for the new circumstance are the ones well known to every connoisseur: the particular robust cushion case, large dial surrounded by the bezel (arguably not the most novel feature of all time), strong integrated lugs and the bridge-shaped device which seals typically the crown. ” You need not be the most eagle-eyed of Paneristi either to see that the Luminor Due is heavily based on the Luminor 1950 case: it has what appears to be an extremely similar case as well as lug profile, albeit the aforementioned diet offers of course taken effect. The particular Panerai Luminor Due line will be debuted by four models, a steel and also gold version in both 42- and 45-millimeter sizes. Let me see all of them one-by-one.
Typically the Panerai Luminor Due 49 3 Times PAM676 along with PAM677 are the 42-millimeter-wide models – often the references refer to the 316L and red gold versions, respectively. Both will come in 10. 5 millimeter thick cases with the under one building P. 1000 manufacture fitted inside. Often the movement, unsurprisingly, will provide three days worth of power reserve, operate at a most welcome 4 Hertz. Notably – for those who are seeking the red-colored gold edition – the exact caliber’s P. 1000/10 skeletonized version makes its debut in the platinum model. We have seen De la firme produce some very impressive-looking skeletonized movements before (check this ten Days GMT PAM624, for example), so this is good news; and even your run-of-the-mill G. 1000 in the steel PAM676 offers plenty of eye-candy.
