The new Luminor 8 Days Power Reserve Acciaio from Panerai is one to get for any watch collector, or if you only want one watch that you know you can rely on, then this will keep even the top watch snobs happy. The simple design with the black face, beige tinted hands and numerals balances beautifully with the 316L stainless case and the distinctive Panerai crown.
A long power reserve of eight days, with an indicator of power remaining on the dial or the back, enhances three new creations of the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel.
The Luminor 8 Days Power Reserve Acciaio classic black sandwich dial with the small seconds counter at 9 o’clock and, for the first time in this model, the power reserve indicator at 5 o’clock, with the arrow hand inspired by some Panerai watches of the late 1990s. Every detail perfectly carries out the function for which it was designed and the rich combination of technical content and purity of design meets the highest standards of sports watchmaking. Attention to detail is also evident in the choice of colours, such as the use of beige Super-LumiNova® on the dial, which coordinates perfectly with the brown leather strap and its beige sewing.
"AISI 316L 1.4435 stainless steel is Officine Panerai’s material par excellence since it is highly resistant to corrosion and is hypoallergenic, making it ideal for contact with the skin. The Panerai watches created for the Italian Navy were made of austenitic stainless steel, a reliable material that was also resistant to the extreme environmental conditions in which the commandos operated."
Also available in titanium or in the “historic” left handed version!
