LUMINOR LUNA ROSSA
HEADING FOR ADVENTURE!
Partner of the Italian nautical challenge since 2017, the Florentine watchmaker unveils a new limited edition, equipped with a hand-wound caliber, which surprises with the combination of colors on its dial and strap.
It was at the beginning of the 20th century that Panerai forged special ties with the ocean world by supplying instruments to the Italian Navy, a very close, almost intimate relationship that the Florence-based watchmaker still nurtures. Proof of this is, in addition to its rich catalog of watches, the partnership signed in 2017 with the Italian challenge team and concretized in 2020 during the 36th America’s Cup by the presentation of a series of four models and, this year, a limited edition of 1,500 pieces: the Luminor Luna Rossa watch (PAM 01342).
Two years before the next America’s Cup scheduled for 2024 in Barcelona, this novelty embodies the prestigious spirit of the famous regatta and opts for the color combination of the Luna Rossa team, which it adopts with elegance. Its matt white dial – an unusual color in Panerai collections – is adorned with grey Arabic numerals and hour markers that match the steel of the 44mm-diameter case and its crown-protector bridge. In the center, two baton-style hands, coated with green glowing luminescent material, display the hours and minutes, while the seconds are marked by a small vermilion-painted second hand at 9 o’clock.
These time functions are driven by the P.6000 caliber, a hand-wound movement that provides a 3-day power reserve. The Luminor Luna Rossa is completed by a grey bi-material strap with a central red stripe featuring the team logo and a steel pin buckle.
