Do you love Panerai watches? Some do — the design, at least. The size, though? Not so much. Some prefer smaller case sizes, and Panerai has large ones. Which is why its Luminor Due collection is an irresistible anomaly to the watchmaker’s roster of fantastic timepieces.
In sizes like 38mm and 42mm, the watches come in a refined shape that doesn’t get rid of Panerai’s signature case and watch aesthetic. Consider them the same excellent Panerai timepieces but now in sizes friendlier to more petite wrists. Each watch in this collection boasts an in-house movement, titanium, steel, or Goldtech cases, and quick-release straps.
The Luminor Due collection features a water resistance rating of 30m, which should perhaps come as no surprise. After all, the brand has a history of tough, robust military dive watches. These are beautiful and ductile watches, in other words. You also get three days worth of power reserve plus a seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock.
If you find that none of these still appeal to you, don’t fret. The luxury brand seems like it will keep making just about any variation to please wrists of all shapes and forms. For those utterly in love with the Panerai aesthetic but were simply waiting for the company to output smaller variants, this is your time.
Prices for the new Luminor Due collection hover between $6,000 up to an upwards of $20,500 for the most expensive model. Make sure to check back with Men’s Gear for more updates as the Italian watchmaker announces more releases.CHECK IT OUT
