Panerai Introduces the Luminor Due Trio in Titanium

Powered by a new movement, the P.900.

A downsized, slimmer sports watch that’s the most civilian of Panerai’s military-inspired watches, the Luminor Due is now available in three sizes with a brushed titanium case (the PAM 926, PAM 927, and PAM 964). All have a date function, and the largest 45mm model has a second time zone and power reserve.

Prior to this launch, the Luminor Due was only available as a time-only in two case sizes (42mm and 45mm), so the newly launched trio substantially increases the offerings in the lightweight metal.

But perhaps more significant is the newly developed calibre inside the new models. The P.900 is a large movement at 12 1/2 lignes, or about 28mm, in diameter, but slim. In fact, it’s the thinnest movement produced by Panerai, measuring just 4.2mm high. It’s automatic and has a three-day power reserve. Not much else has been revealed about the movement yet, but it is likely to be the brand’s new entry-level calibre.

The smallest of the trio is the Luminor Due 38mm PAM00926 that’s powered by the automatic P.900 movement. It’s the first time the smallest Luminor Due case is being offered in titanium.

The Luminor Due 42mm PAM00927 is one step upwards in size, but otherwise identical, with the same movement and specs.

And the top of the line watch is the Luminor Due GMT Power Reserve 45mm PAM000964. This is equipped with the P.4002 automatic movement that has a second time zone, power reserve and zero-reset hack seconds.

All three titanium models are also fitted with quick-release straps featuring a tab on the back that allows easy removal of the strap, eliminating the need to unscrew or release the lug bars.

And in steel and “Goldtech”

Also unveiled at the same time is another trio of models, the first two in steel, but all featuring the same quick-release strap. The Luminor Due 38mm PAM01043 is steel with a white dial and beige Super-Luminova. It’s powered by the P.900 movement.

The Luminor Due 42mm PAM1046 is identical, but in a larger case.

And the third is the luxe watch for ladies, the Luminor Due 38mm PAM01045 in an 18k rose gold alloy Panerai has named Goldtech. According to Panerai it has a higher copper content than usual, giving it a redder due, while also containing platinum, which makes it resistant to fading as ordinary rose gold is prone to do over many years.
