Luminor BiTempo From Panerai Maintains Its Italian Roots
This Luminor timepiece keeps to its Italian DNA.
Here comes a new manly watch with true Italian DNA. The Luminor BiTempo exudes refinement and ease with its GMT feature for added visual appeal.
This Luminor can simultaneously track the time in two different time zones, near or distant. All the while, it maintains the characteristic features and quality that are definitively Panerai.
Meanwhile, this latest Luminor has been interpreted in two distinct color palettes, each with a compelling, assured presence and built on the foundation of a 44mm steel case.
The first centers on a lively blue sun-brushed dial with an alligator strap in the same rich hue (PAM01361); the second has a matte black dial and matching alligator strap (PAM01360). In both colors, Luminor BiTempo features a GMT function that indicates the time in a second time zone with a hand in vivid cerulean blue to ensure visibility at a glance.
A sub-dial at five o’clock with a bright blue hand provides a measure of the remaining power reserve, which extends to 72 hours when fully wound.
The sandwich dial, a signature presence in the Panerai design vocabulary, exhibits subtle updates that reveal the unending process of perfecting the brand’s icons.
The date window at three o’clock is larger than those that preceded it, and its beveled aperture is the first instance of a feature that will appear in future models.
Italian text inscribed on the dial highlights key features, BiTempo refers to its GMT function, while the word “ore” indicates the hours remaining in the power reserve and it is ready to affirm the brand’s Italian DNA.
The design sophistication and originality for which Panerai is recognized and its experience in crafting instruments for navy divers are inseparable from its Italian origins. This heritage sets it apart from other Swiss-made watches.
Calibre P.9012 powers the new Luminor models; the self-winding automatic movement is fully visible through a sapphire crystal display case-back.
