Panerai Luminor 1950 44 BiTempo

The new Panerai Luminor BiTempo watches affirm the brand’s Italian DNA with new design features. The new PAM01360 and PAM 01361 are presented in 44 mm stainless steel cases and with black and blue dials respectively. The spirit that defines Panerai watches and the people who wear them is not confined to a specific pursuit or destination; instead, it is a way of being that extends to any endeavor, a passionate engagement with the world that reaches beyond a single point on a map or location. The Panerai Luminor BiTempo watches exudes refinement and ease and, through its GMT feature, 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.

The new Panerai Luminor BiTempo watches has been interpreted in two distinct color palettes, each with a compelling, assured presence and built on the foundation of a 44 mm steel case. The first centers on a lively blue sun-brushed dial with an alligator strap in the same rich hue —PAM01361— and the second one comes with a matte black dial with a matching alligator strap in black —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 subdial 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— 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.
Both watches are powered by the Panerai automatic movement calibre P.9012 which is fully visible through a sapphire crystal display case back. The watches are water-resistant 300 meters and both Panerai Luminor BiTempo watches feature a brushed steel pin buckle. Also included are an additional rubber strap and a tool to allow interchangeability of the straps and a screwdriver for removing the buckle.
