    47 Panerai Luminor 1950 Series 3-day Power Reserve Titanium Dlc Watch

    Officine Panerai presents two new limited edition watches for collectors who value historical events and traditional values, as well as Panerai watch enthusiasts, each limited to 300 pieces, reflecting the richness of Historical Origins.

     Each Panerai watch combines historical essence and excellent watchmaking technology. Historical roots make up the rich heritage of the brand, including Florence, the birthplace of the brand, excellent Italian designs from the 1930s to 1950s, and watches designed for the Italian Navy commando to perform underwater missions. The watch is equipped with ‘Made in Switzerland’ precision machinery, reflecting the watchmaking brand’s heritage of advanced watchmaking technology for centuries, while constantly breaking through the exemplary personality. Panerai’s two new limited edition watches, each limited to 300 pieces, reinterpret enthusiasm and creativity, technology and design, past and future, creating the new Luminor 1950 3 Days Titanio DLC 3-day power reserve titanium DLC watch.

     The case is slightly different from the Luminor 1950 case, and the subtleties are derived from the development history of Panerai watches. The case number ‘1950’ is the year of birth of the case with the crown bridge device. The classic design is highly recognizable. It was born in response to the needs of the Italian Navy commando to enhance the watch’s robustness and waterproof performance. Such a historic case design was officially reprinted only in 2002 when Panerai released the first Luminor 1950 watch (PAM00127). Two limited edition watches follow every detail of the original design and become collector’s treasures. As for the first contemporary watch equipped with a crown and bridge protection device, it was released in 1993. The design was slightly modified from the original version and developed into today’s Luminor series. Therefore, the Luminor case is inspired by the contemporary history of Panerai; the Luminor 1950 case tells the legendary story of the commando’s heroic mission, which is closely related to the brand’s past history.

     The two new watches are decorated with a detail to explain the history of Panerai: the ‘1950’ year is engraved on the bridge protection of the winding crown. The case inherits the original design’s 47 mm diameter, is cast from lightweight, strong and sensitive to titanium and is coated with DLC (Diamond-Crystalline Carbon). The case with a collection of ancient and modern elements combines the superior performance of contemporary high-end watches with classical design. A brown leather strap with contrast stitching, embossed OP logo, a calm and rustic sports watch shape, reminiscent of the Panerai watch born from the deep sea environment, echoing the watch’s diving performance, Water-resistant to 10 bar (water depth of about 100 meters).

     The dials of the two new Luminor 1950 3 days Titanio DLC 3-day power reserve titanium DLC watches each have their own features and are also protected by curved crystal mirrors. The black dial of one of the watches (PAM00617) follows the Panerai classic sandwich structure design, with the OP logo, with large stick-shaped hour markers and numbers, and the small seconds dial is set at 9 o’clock. The black dial of the other watch (PAM00629) uses a combination of Roman and Arabic numerals, with a combination of image and time scales. This unique dial design is named ‘California’, and it is a replica of Radiomir, the first watch created by Panerai in 1936, which is highly sought after by collectors.

     The new Luminor 1950 watch is equipped with a P.3000 manual winding movement with a power reserve of up to three days. The diameter of the P.3000 movement is 16½ centimeters. It is derived from the historical model of Panerai. Its structure is sturdy and reliable. The large balance wheel has a diameter of 13.2 mm and is fixed by a balance bridge across the two ends. The wide frosted splint covers most of the gear components, and its edges are chamfered to make the movement look beautiful. The movement is completely designed and developed by Panerai Watchmaking Factory in Neuchâtel. It is equipped with the function of quick adjustment of the hour hand, allowing the hour hand to move independently in units of one hour without affecting the minute hand or watch operation.

    Panelai Mechanical Jumping Seconds Special Limited Edition

    18k white gold case, produced in 2001, 42 mm in diameter and 11.5 mm thick
    Commission Price: $ 18,750
    Estimated price: 10,000 ~ 15,000 USD
    Panerai was once dubbed by watch friends as the most expensive ETA 6497 sold in the world. At that time, almost all Panerai used large-sized small three-pin cores such as ETA 6497 to make watches. But with the rapid recovery and increasing acceptance of this brand, it was time for Panerai to launch a self-produced movement almost insane, and the quality was quite high. This Panerai of Ref. 6551 is a special limited edition of 2001. It uses a rare mechanical jumping seconds device and 160 pieces are placed worldwide. Panerai now insists that there are limited special models launched every year, the purpose is very clear, is to enhance the brand value. The market acceptance is also acceptable. Of course not as warm as in previous years. It was difficult to reproduce the situation where Shanghai Hang Lung Plaza queued up to pre-order Panerai 183. Of course, this is also a good thing. After all, watches are not better than gold and platinum financial management products. It is not a bad thing to be more rational while pursuing appreciation investments. Gold watches have always been an element of high-end products in the watch industry. After all, making watches with precious metal materials is an important indicator for each brand to position its product line. Any complicated watch will be represented by precious metals. Someone once joked that the ‘starter’ mentality of gold watches only prevails in the Mainland. In fact, otherwise, gold watches still have works close to art, and they can be accepted worldwide.
