Chronographs are one of Panerai’s big bets for 2021, with the brand of Italian origin presenting, nothing more, nothing less, than five models with this complication.
Luminor Chrono 44mm
This year, the Luminor line receives three new 44 mm chronographs. Featuring the typical Panerai sandwich dial and crown protector on the right side of the watch, the new Luminor Chronographs differ in that the chronograph controls have been moved to the left, in homage to the first Panerai chronographs. For greater legibility, the hands of the chronograph counter (central second hand and right sub-dial) are blue, while the hour, minute and small seconds hands are made of steel.
The new watches come in a 44 mm steel case, waterproof to 100 meters and are powered by the new Caliber P.9200 automatic chronograph movement, with 42 hours of power reserve. Also noteworthy is the unusual design of the strap, inspired by the unique crown protectors found in all Luminor watches.
The Luminor Chrono 44 mm is available in three variations: blue dial with steel bracelet (PAM1110); white dial with black crocodile leather strap and additional blue rubber strap (PAM01218); black dial with black crocodile leather strap and additional black rubber strap (PAM01109).
Luminor Chrono Monopulsante GMT Blue Notte
Limited to 200 pieces, the Luminor Chrono Monopulsante GMT Blue Notte stands out for presenting a mono-pusher chronograph with GMT function and an 8-day power reserve. All this thanks to the P.2004 caliber, a manual movement that pays homage to the first chronograph caliber entirely created and developed in-house by Panerai.
Available in a 44 mm case in black ceramic watertight up to 100 meters and with a sapphire crystal caseback, the new model also surprises with a night blue dial. The final touch is given by the calfskin strap and the additional blue rubber strap.
Luminor Luna Rossa Chrono
To celebrate the achievements of the team of sailors and partner of Panerai, Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli, the brand presents the Luminor Luna Rossa Chrono, a chronograph limited to 1000 pieces, watertight, as it could not fail to be, up to 100 meters.
This new model comes in a 44 mm steel case, which frames a deep blue sandwich dial, with numerals and indices in white Super-LumiNova with green luminescence. The Luminor Luna Rossa Chrono is accompanied by two bimatter straps – technical fabric and rubber – one blue and one white, both with Luna Rossa customization.
