Dubail Paris, the network of luxury boutiques, and Officine Panerai, the famous Italian-based watchmaking brand, have teamed to introduce the limited-edition Luminor 1950 Rattrapante Dubail Paris (PAM 357) fly-back chronograph. Equipped with an ETA Valjoux 7750-based caliber and sporting an oversized body in DLC-coated steel, the chronograph brings you everything you expect from a Panerai timekeeper. The design is recognizable to the point that, looking at it, you constantly suffer from the severest case of déjà vu.
The hand-wound limited-edition Panerai Luminor Marina 福 “Fu” (PAM 366) was offered exclusively for the Chinese market. Featuring the usual brutalist styling and their own in-house P.999 hand-wound movement, the limited edition differs from other iterations of the popular model only with the “福” hieroglyph on its matte-black dial.
Combining a 30-second tourbillon, equation of time, sunrise/sunset indicator and lots of other technically challenging complications, the 2010 Luminor 1950 Equation of Time Tourbillon Titanio (PAM365) is Panerai’s opus magnum. I mean, presented at the SIHH 2010, the PAM 365 is, perhaps, the most interesting among numerous “grand complication” models that you can wear on your own wrist if the gadget’s huge size doesn’t scare you away.
Presented during the SIHH 2010 international trade show, this 2010 Panerai Luminor 1950 Marina (PAM 359) is (at least from the point of view of the hardware that powers the watch) identical to the more lightweight 2010 ref. PAM 351 in titanium. Also coming in a body of the same dimensions, this one, however, has a different dial layout and is crafted from polished stainless steel.
The 2010 Panerai Luminor 1950 Marina PAM 351 is yet another model offered in a titanium case playing with brushed and polished surfaces and the usual high-quality leather strap with titanium buckle. The PAM351 was presented at SIHH 2010 trade show in Geneva, Switzerland.
The hand-wound Radiomir Tourbillon GMT Ceramica Lo Scienziato (PAM 348) is so far one of the most surprising introductions at this year’s SIHH 2010 event. You see, Panerai has never produced a watch with a skeletonized dial and an open-worked movement. Some people may even argue that they shouldn’t have even started.
The Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT (PAM 347) was first presented at the SIHH 2010 trade show. It is basically the same PAM 321 that was presented exactly a year before but with its black alligator strap replaced with a more practical stainless-steel bracelet that features a vertical brushed finish and polished surface between the links.
Just like the PAM 338 that, too, was presented during this year’s SIHH 2010 show, the hand-wound Panerai Radiomir 8 Days (PAM 346) combines titanium alloy of its mildly oversized case with 18-karat rose gold of its three hands in something that some may feel like an ugly mix of difficult to match metals.
During the SIHH 2010 trade show, Panerai has presented several models with their mechanisms packed inside ceramic cases of different colors and compositions. For their Radiomir Composite Marina Militare 8 Giorni PAM 339 three-hander, the Florence-based giant decided to use a case made of aluminum-based ceramic.
The hand-wound Radiomir PAM 338 that was presented at the SIHH 2010, offers you a particularly impressive combination of Panerai’s easily recognizable vintage-styled exterior with the new mechanical movement, which is crafted exclusively at their own production facilities in Switzerland: a real treat for those tired of numerous “modified” movements based on inexpensive ETA blank calibers.
