This SIHH 2018, Panerai released two watches in steel that are perfect for a woman or a man with a smaller wrist. This is the NEW Panerai 38mm Luminor Due in stainless steel. This NEW size is the thinnest and most versatile in Panerai’s arsenal. Are you tired of your significant other wearing your watch (even though it looks much cooler on her, but you hate to admit it)??? This is the perfect modern-day Panerai for her. It has everything that you both love about Panerai but it’s smaller, more elegant, and less bulky. Not to mention, the price is right at just $6k.
It’s available in two variations; PAM00755- with a Sun-brushed anthracite grey dial with luminous Arabic numerals and hour markers,, Date at 3 o’clock and small seconds at 9 o’clock fitted with a teal green strap and PAM00903 with an Ivory dial with blue Arabic numerals and luminous dots and steel blued hands, Date at 3 o’clock and small seconds at 9 o’clock fitted on a blue leather strap with saffiano finish. Both versions have solid case backs and are water-resistant to 30 meters.
This watch is interesting because it got both men and women buzzing about it! A lot of men who collect watches, especially vintage, would love this size because it’s more refined than the standard 44mm Panerai watch. On one hand, I like it because it gives women an option to wear a watch that’s not designated a man’s watch. This watch is designated for both men and women. The only thing I don’t like is the depth rating is only 30 meters. The whole point of Panerai is they are divers watches which are supposed to be very water-resistant. I guess something had to get compromised in reducing the thickness as well as case diameter. After all, it’s equipped with an in-house manufactured three-day Manufacture OP XXXIV caliber movement.
I like the elegance and feminity of the PAM00755 for a woman and the casual and everyday wearing sensibility of the PAM00903 for a man. Either way whatever your preference these are both winners! These watches will deliver by the spring/summer.
