Luminor Due collection extended

Panerai has unveiled new models in its Luminor Due collection. The new models include two Luminor Due 3 Days 42 mm with hand-wound movements, and two Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic 45 mm, in titanium or red gold. 

The new Luminor Due 3 Days, available in brushed titanium (PAM00728) or in red gold (PAM00741), has a case 42 mm in diameter and is only 10.5 mm thick, almost 40 per cent less than the models of the same diameter in the Luminor 1950 collection.

The dial has a minimalist design in which the small seconds hand at 9 o’clock stands out. In the titanium model the dial is blue, with the sandwich structure and satiné soleil finish, while that of the red gold model is a sophisticated ivory colour with contrasting blue figures.

The back encloses a porthole protected by sapphire crystal, through which one can admire the P.1000 movement, hand-wound with a power reserve of three days.

In the Luminor Due 3 Days Oro Rosso the calibre is the skeletonised P.1000/10 version. Here the large brush-finished bridge has been worked to enable much of the mechanism be seen, including the two spring barrels which provide a power reserve of three days, and the balance beneath the bridge mounted on twin supports to ensure greater reliability and stability.

The two watches are finished with blue alligator straps – darker for the titanium model and lighter for the model in gold – and they are water-resistant to 3 bar (a depth of about 30 m).


The Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic is now available in two new versions with the case 45 mm in diameter: in titanium, with a blue dial and an alligator strap of the same colour (PAM00729) or in stainless steel, with an anthracite dial and a brown alligator strap (PAM00739).

Both models use the P.4000 automatic calibre, with a power reserve of three days and off-centred rotor.

Compared to the Luminor 1950 model of the same size, both the two watches are also thinner and lighter with the thickness of the case reduced by almost 40 per cent (10.7 mm).

The most distinctive feature of the P.4000 calibre is the off-centred micro-rotor which rotates in both directions, winding up the two spring barrels which can store a power reserve of three days.

In the steel version, the P.4000 is the P.4000/10 skeletonised version, with an oscillating weight of 22-carat gold decorated with clous de Paris. With a circular brushed finish and gilded engraving, the bridges are skeletonised to enable a large part of the movement to be seen, and every detail is clearly visible through the large porthole in the sapphire crystal opening in the back.

In the titanium version, the oscillating weight is made of tungsten, a material very suitable for this purpose because of its high specific weight.

The dial of the new Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic has the sandwich structure, satiné soleil finish and minimalist design, with figures at the cardinal points, bar hour markers and the small seconds counter at 9 o’clock. The water-resistance of the two models is guaranteed to 3 bar.
