The new Luminor Due Luna, with its 38mm case and moon phase complication, showcases Panerai’s grandeur, but is more wearable and as close to a dress watch as possible
Italian luxury watchmaker Panerai has once again raised the bar with a compact, more wearable version of its popular Luminor Due collection, complete with Lunar styling. First launched in 2016, the Luminor Due timepieces are robust, sporty and bold, with diameters ranging from 44mm to 47mm (there’s even a huge 50mm moonphase model). The new Luminor Due Luna 38mm timepiece is smaller in size, more elegant in hand, and fits almost any wrist.
Is it gold or copper? This is gold technology
The Luminor Due Luna 38mm collection differs from its large case size, but in keeping with Panerai’s masculine beauty, it is aimed at women or men with smaller wrists. The collection is as close to a dress watch as Panerai is, with design elements that combine a moon phase complication with a smaller dial size, while still retaining the brand’s DNA.
The new Moonphase iteration comes in a 38mm case and comes in a Goldtech (Panerai’s rose gold alloy) version and three steel versions. Interestingly, only the former allows the user to see the movement through the display case back, while the other versions feature a solid steel case back. When paired with the brand’s ‘safety lock’ crown, the case is water resistant to 30 meters.
Unlike traditional gold, Panerai’s Goldtech contains copper, which gives it a rich rose gold color. The alloy also contains platinum, which protects the material from oxidation and prolongs the life of the timepiece. Unlike the standard rose gold case, the distinctive strength of Goldtech gives it a more modern side. Due Luna model PAM01181 is set in a Goldtech case with a mother-of-pearl dial and comes on a blue alligator strap with a Goldtech pin buckle.
Lume shines through the dial
Three stainless steel models have sun-brushed laminated dials, one in blue and two in white. The numerals and hour markers — beige Super-LumiNova on the white dial, white on the blue version — sit on the bottom layer of the sandwich dial, while the top layer has a stencil effect that lets the luminescence shine through, revealing the indices.
The bold PAM01180 has a white dial with a deep pink alligator strap, while the PAM01301 has a Luminor Due steel bracelet matching the crown protection. A third stainless steel model, the PAM01179, completes the collection with a sunray brushed blue sandwich dial and matching blue alligator leather strap, giving the watch a monochromatic aesthetic suitable for everyday wear.
starry sky golden moon
These timepieces feature a moon phase complication at three o’clock, with a 24-carat moon mounted on a rotating disc against a starry midnight sky, complemented by a small seconds subdial at nine o’clock. In all four timepieces, “Luna” – meaning “moon” in Italian – appears at six o’clock. The gold-tone hands and hour markers are coated with Super-LumiNova for excellent visibility in low-light conditions. The dial is covered with a corundum sapphire crystal, and the case back of the steel timepiece is polished stainless steel. One side of the crown is decorated with Panerai’s iconic protective bridge, adding an avant-garde design to the timepiece.
These timepieces are equipped with an easy-to-change strap mechanism, which allows the wearer to change the strap without using any tools. Panerai offers the Luminor Due satin straps, essentially leather straps that look and feel like satin, as well as alligator straps in a variety of colors to expand the wearing possibilities of the Luminor Due collection.replica Tourbillon watches
Rugged, durable, automatic, compact
These watches are powered by self-winding mechanical movements with a power reserve of up to 72 hours and require no manual winding. Made with high-quality materials and sturdy construction, these novelty items are durable enough to withstand everyday wear and tear. All four versions are powered by the brand’s in-house P.900/MP movement, a flat movement measuring just 5.9mm high, with hours, minutes, seconds and moon phase modules.
The Panerai Luminor Due Luna 38mm fake men watch is a wonderful addition to the brand’s collection. They offer a new moon phase complication that is both highly accurate and easy to adjust. The dial size makes it an excellent choice for those who prefer a more compact watch with a reliable movement built in, the stainless steel case ensures durability and corrosion resistance, and a variety of dial and strap color options are available to personalize these timepieces. If you’re looking for a new formal timepiece with attitude, the Luminor Duo Luna is a great choice.
