To celebrate the partnership between the two sides for more than 20 years and commemorate the 70th anniversary of luminor series, Panerai and baojiaer jointly launched a special version of Panerai luminor GMT (model: pam01176). This is the fourth watch jointly released by the two sides, aiming at conquering the world of advanced watchmaking and arousing the interest of fans all over the world.
The blue special edition of panahai luminor GMT wristwatch reflects the perfect combination of Swiss watchmaking expertise, Italian genius design and panahai’s navigation tradition, and shows the meaningful charm of the iconic luminor series with courage. With the popular GMT travel function of Panerai, this watch combines the complex technology of precision instruments with the fortitude and durability of ceramic case to interpret low-key elegance and international taste.
The real highlight of the blue special edition of panerai luminor GMT watch is the super luminova? Material that emits electric blue fluorescence in the dark, setting a brand precedent. The exclusive elements of baojiaer Blue special edition are also reflected in many details, such as small second hand, GMT pointer, and strap stitching. The crown decorated with blue rubber ring is a highlight in itself, which perfectly reflects the Italian design heritage of Panerai. The embossed “Bucherer blue” bottom cover adds an exclusive touch to this durable and practical watch. The active and adventurous Panerai watch enthusiast can easily replace the durable rubber strap with the included tools.
Panerai has a deep relationship with blue, which reflects the brand’s maritime tradition and masterpieces of timepieces created for different types of marine activities. To salute and continue this heritage, Panerai is developing ecologico’s new environmental protection products. For example, the two strap of the new watch are made of recycled PET bottles and ABS packaging, demonstrating the firm commitment of the brand to sustainable development.
European watch retailer Bucherer has added a new watch to its ever-expanding Bucherer Blue limited edition watch collection. The new Panerai Luminor GMT Bucherer Blue (Reference PAM01176) features a black ceramic construction and some vibrant blue accents.
Panerai watches have always been known for their bold aesthetics and the new PAM01176 is no exception. Measuring a relatively large 44mm in diameter, the case of this watch is made from Matt black ceramic and has a very familiar Panerai style silhouette. Short chunky lugs, a smooth bezel on top, and of course Panerai’s signature crown locking mechanism combine to create a design that cannot be mistaken for anything else. To make things special, the threaded crown that makes sure that the watch is water-resistant to 300 meters has been painted blue.
The dial, like the case, is also typical Panerai. It features a sandwich-style construction and is characterized by bold cut-out Arabic numerals at 6, 9, and 12. A running seconds register sits alongside the 9 o’clock position and there is a date window at 3 to balance it out. The lower exposed layer of the dial is a sea of white super-luminova that emits a stunning blue glow going with the blue theme of this watch. The remaining blue accents on the dial are the blued second’s hand and the arrow tipped GMT hand, both of which have also been filled with luminous paint.
Inside the new Panerai Luminor GMT Bucherer Blue runs the in-house calibre P.9010. This movement operates at a frequency of 4Hz and offers an autonomy of around 3 days when fully wound. The movement keeps tracks of hours, minutes and seconds, and can track an extra time zone. The movement has been hidden behind the closed case back.
