Panerai Luminor Watches
Panerai Luminor has a long history with the Royal Italian Navy as the official dive watch of the armed force. In fact, it wasn’t until 1993 that Panerai made the legendary Luminor available to the general public. The watch made a lot of noise on its release. The large case, minimalistic design code, and of course, the Panerai patented illuminant of the same name as the watch defined the Swiss timepiece’s USP.
Today, Panerai Luminor has not only become technologically superior to its predecessor but has also diversified into various watch families under the Luminor moniker. The watch retains a lot of key features that the original Luminor 1950 showcased. The case is overwhelmingly large with case sizes ranging from 42mm to 47mm. The dial is legible and extremely easy to read. When it comes to the movement, Panerai uses its in-house manufactured calibres to power up the new Luminor watches. Other features that make the timepiece a true marvel of modern horology are the sapphire crystal glass, sturdy leather/rubber straps, the iconic as well as patented crown protector, and lastly, the luminescent indices and time markers. Other advanced functions such as a tourbillon, moon phase, GMT, regatta, and Equation of time have been introduced to the collection as well. The Panerai Luminor is not merely a watch, it is an avatar of toughness and masculinity.
