Back in 2016 marked the first appearance of the “Luminor Due” collection by Officine Panerai. It was conceived as the second generation of the Luminor, that’s why they called it “due” which means “two” in Italian. Initially these watches were scaled-down versions of the original with a smaller case size, slimmer profile, and remained time-only or included a date display. These four new releases have added a moon-phase, plus some other novel elements that set them apart from each other. The 38mm case is made of stainless-steel with an overall polished finish, which we can see throughout the full surface, casebands and short stubby lugs with those exposed screws. Mounted to the case is also a mirror-like steel polished bezel. The only contrasting element appears in the form of the large crown guard with a vertically brushed finish.Meanwhile the PAM01181 version is the only one crafted out of Panerai’s proprietary Goldtech™. This alloy contains platinum and a high percentage of copper, which is where the notable red tone in the gold derives from.On the flip-side all models have a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. It comes equipped with the iconic Luminor Marina style crown protection with the locking gear lever that secures the setting-crown in place. All topped by a sapphire crystal that assists with water-resistance reaching up to 50 meters (164 feet).Time is exhibited on the iconic Panerai sandwich dial in blue or white with hour index markers and the Arabic numerals: 6 and 12. Both of these hues have a sun-brushed finish that adds an extra flare when the light hits it in a certain way.Dial wise PAM01181 deviates from the rest by not following the sandwich layout. Instead it features a mother-of-pearl dial with applied indices and numerals.In common all models include two sub-dials: a small seconds at 9 o’clock and a moon phase display with a rotating disc that features a 24k hand chiseled moon hovering over a starry midnight blue sky. The lower-half of the dial includes an inscription that reads “Luna” which means moon in Italian. The central steel or gold sword-shaped hands, sub-seconds, hour index markers and Arabic numerals have all been fitted with a green luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility.
