The Luminor Due: Core collection
The new Panerai Luminor Due Luna Replica timepieces mark a first for the Luminor Due collection, which had never before integrated a complication into one of its watches. One reason for this is that the Luminor Due watches, first introduced back in 2016, are much slimmer than their diving watch relatives in the main Luminor collection.
By contrast, the Luminor Due collection maintains sharp proportions yet has a more elegant feel and smaller sizes. This line is as close as Cheap Panerai Replica comes to a dress watch, while still maintaining the brand’s unmistakable DNA cues. On the one hand, we still see Panerai’s distinctive cushion case, sandwich dial, and curved Arabic and baton hour markers.
The new iterations with moonphase are housed in 38 mm cases, with one Goldtech and three steel options available. Interestingly, only the former allows the wearer to admire the Panerai Replica Watches movement through the caseback, while the other editions stick to solid steel casebacks. The cases, in combination with the Safety Lock crown, promise water-resistance to 30 m. This level of water-resistance feels like a courteous nod to the DNA of the brand above anything else, as these are not supposed to be action-packed watches.
Not only is the design enjoyable, as well as reassuring, for the wearer, but it also add a very individual aesthetic spin to the Swiss Luminor Due Luna Replica in comparison to other sporty dress watches on the market. The integration of such a tool-watch feature onto an otherwise rather gracefully designed timepiece is very unusual, and Panerai execute it extremely well.
The cases and bezels of all the Luminor Due Luna models are polished, adding to the argument that these are fairly smart timepieces. However, the one steel edition to come with a matching bracelet, as opposed to alligator leather strap, does alternate between polished and brushed steel, making for a well-finished look overall.
The Luminor Due Madreperla: PAM01181
The deep rose-gold tones also accentuate the matching moonphase lying at 3 o’clock, while complementing the golden luminous Arabic markers. The best replica watches store in the world small seconds, which lie at 9 o’clock, are so well-integrated that they’re barely noticeable at first – this is a feat in itself. One thing that Panerai fans will note, however, is that this model does not use Panerai’s distinctive two-part sandwich dial, which applies luminescent to the lower surface. Cutting into fragile mother-of-pearl would not be a good idea for a resilient Swiss-made watch.
Unlike standard gold, Panerai 1:1 quality replica watches is made with a percentage of copper that imbues the material with a rich red hue. Unlike more traditional rose-gold cases, it has an overtly modern look thanks to its enduring intensity. Goldtech contains platinum, which prevents the material from oxidising; as a result, the intensity is able to match to the long lifetime of the watch. The watch is paired with a blue alligator strap, which secures with a Goldtech pin buckle.
PAM01179 and PAM01180: Sunburst brushing and steel
The PAM01179 combines a deep blue dial with a matching navy strap. Interestingly, Panerai opts for golden luminous hands and small seconds, yet the sandwich dial’s luminous Arabic and baton hour markers are without colour. While this increases the watch’s legibility and avoids this timepiece becoming too monotone, it does create a slightly less harmonious look than the PAM01180.
The golden moonphase, hour, minute, and small seconds and markers create a very balanced aesthetic in combination with the clean white sun-brushed dial. This time, the 1:1 Clone Swiss Watches is paired with a bright pink alligator strap. Once again, I personally am not always a fan of alligator straps as they can look dated when used on watches that aren’t overtly traditional in terms of style. However, in line with the Luminor Due collection, this particular strap looks contemporary, high quality, and very attractive indeed.
The strap used on all three leather-strap models are so-called ‘Luminor Due satin straps’, which are specially designed to have a satin-like texture and sheen. The Panerai Replica straps feel very comfortable on the wrist, and the light-weight, easily adjustable pin-buckle option takes the weight off the watch – particularly the gold PAM01181 – making the timepieces very wearable. With Panerai being home to such sizeable pieces across its collections, it’s no wonder the manufacture has learned to nail wearability. The straps use a quick release system, meaning that an array of colours are available to the wearer if desired.
Feeling the steel: PAM01301
This model brings all of my personal favourite core The Most Exquisite Luxury Panerai Replica features to the forefront: a sporty steel case and matching bracelet, white sun-brushed dial, and decent diameter of 38 mm. Interestingly, the bracelet’s unusual curvaceous links take inspiration from the Luminor crown-lock bridge.It’s perhaps the most balanced of all of the models, offering a bridge between the Luminor Due’s sporty and stylish qualities. Once again, the moonphase is integrated perfectly into the design thanks to the matching golden luminous accents on this watch.
The moonphase calibre
These captivating miniature stars are not solid gold, but are rather spheres engraved into the disc. Once again, the moonphase is aesthetically very well executed, adding an unusually beautiful and artisanal touch to Panerai Replica Swiss Made usually no-nonsense, sporty designs that tend to first and foremost command attention through their size.
The movement making this new moonphase complication possible is the P.900/MP calibre, an automatic movement with an impressive three-day power reserve and solid frequency of 4 Hz. Offering hours, minutes, small seconds, date, and moonphase, it builds upon the P.900, which offers all but the latter complication.
