Panerai has unveiled a Luminor Due 42mm collection forged from its trademarked Goldtech alloy.
The case, bezel, safety lock crown protective device, back buckle are formed from the special 18ct gold alloy, which has a high percentage of copper and a little platinum in the mix.
The copper is designed to give the color intensity and depth, while the platinum is there to lower the tarnishing effects of oxidation.
The dial comes in either black with a satiné soleil finish and sandwich structure, or white with luminous printed Arabic numerals.
The Luminor Due has a mechanical movement with automatic winding, while the new P.900 Caliber fits perfectly into the small size of the Luminor Due case.
With a thickness of just 4.2mm, it ranks as one of Panerai’s thinnest automatic movements.
Both watches are water-resistant to a depth of about 30 meters and are supplied with an interchangeable alligator leather strap fitted with a quick release system.
