The Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT is an impressively designed watch that was inspired by a vintage timepiece used by the Italian Navy. The slightly more complex dial is a revolutionary change for the brand that in recent years has reinvented most of its classic models by adding innovative features and functions. By all means, this stylish GMT wristwatch is a statement of elegance, precision and functionality.
Typical characteristics of the Italian manufacturer, the timepiece includes a distinctively styled dial with large Arabic numerals and hour markers, a satin-finished cushion-shaped case with a beautifully polished bezel and an over-sized winding crown with the iconic protective locking system that presses the crown tightly into the case. Nevertheless, the true innovations of this model are what set it apart from the rest of Panerai collections- the second time zone function, the power-reserve display positioned on the back, the date window at 3 o’clock and the seconds reset mechanism.
Over the dial there is a 2.6mm thick coated sapphire crystal paired-up with a polished steel bracelet. The minimalist yet industrial look of the timepiece is completed by the 44 mm wide case and the attractive bracelet with angular Y-shaped links. Furthermore, the case has been designed to withstand extreme pressure associated with diving at depths of 300 meters.
At the inside of the watch beats the exceptional Panerai in-house P.9003 Calibre. This automatic mechanical movement has been created exclusively by the brand and it features 233 components, 28 jewels, Glucydur® balance, Incabloc® anti-shock device and a 3 days power reserve with two barrels.
The distinctive Panerai DNA and sense of design are key attributes of the Panerai Luminor 1950 3 days GMT. Once considered a utilitarian Navy time keeping device, now the watch is one of the most sought-after luxury timepieces. Its iconic design, masculine personality and high functionality are the main reasons why this model enjoys unparalleled success.
