On occasion of the “Dive into Time” exhibition held in Florence and after the recent presentation of the Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Tourbillon GMT replica watches PAM00600, Officine replica Panerai watches introduces more novelties and in particular a new collection named Luminor Due (meaning Two in Italian), the result of a challenge taken by the designers and engineers of the Panerai Manufacture to offer enthusiasts a new interpretation of the brand’s iconic watch while achieving a reduction in the thickness of the case compared to the historic one which is up to 40% for some models.
These circumstances contributed to create a huge buzz around Panerai, something which attracted the attention of the Vendôme Luxury Group (today Richemont Group) which in 1997 completed the acquisition of the Officine Panerai watchmaking business. Watches produced between 1993 and 1997 are generally referred to as “Pre-Vendome” models.
For collectors and lovers of these references, Officine Panerai luminous replica watches presented a new set composed of two watches inspired to the models created in 1996: a left-handed version of the Luminor Black Seal and a very rare Luminor Daylight with a white dial and blue markers.
The two watches are supplied in a box inspired by those used for Panerai vintage Luminor fake watches, made of pear wood with a teak base and containing a model of the human torpedo (Siluro a Lenta Corsa – slow speed torpedo), together with a rare publication about the military equipment of the special forces of the Royal Italian Navy, in which Panerai watches and instruments appear. The box also includes a spare strap for each model and a screwdriver.
