Panerai has unveiled a new model with two interpretations – the manual winding Luminor Base Logo 44 mm (PAM01086) and Luminor Logo 44 mm (PAM01084) – each a tribute to the history of the brand. The two variants are differentiated only by the presence of the small seconds at 9 o’clock on the Luminor Logo (PAM01084).
It is an inheritance observed through widely recognized graphic codes: the layout of the dial with Arabic numerals and engraved indexes filled with neon green Super-LumiNovaTM and the shape of the Luminor case, characterized by a distinctive bridge device with a lever to protect the crown. The sharp, singular lines were inspired by the first civilian models of the 1990s.
Other than the small seconds at 9 o’clock, the dials of the two Luminor Logo models share an identical colour palette: black with a matte finish. Their time-tested aesthetic dimensions are complemented by the presence at 6 o’clock of the iconic “OP” logo. The stylized rendering of the Officine Panerai initials features divergent double arrows representing the brand’s know-how with respect to tools able to perform above and below the surface of the sea. Proprietary codes are drawn from the brand’s recent history, including the typeface chosen to outline the numerals residing at the cardinal points of the dial, amplifies their appeal.
The case is composed of AISI 316L steel, a low carbon alloy with a good degree of corrosion resistance. Inside, both models are animated by Caliber P.6000, which was conceived and developed within the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. A mechanical movement with manual winding equipped with a device to stop the balance when the crown is pulled out and a three-day power reserve delivered by a single barrel. The movement is reliable and solid thanks to the double bridge supporting the regulator. Both are water-resistant up to 100 meters.
The new manual Luminor models are accompanied by a calfskin strap, in black or light brown with beige stitching and a pin buckle in brushed steel. The straps affix to the lugs using the Panerai Screw System. An additional black rubber strap completes the package, along with a special screwdriver to change the straps and for removing the buckle.
