Minimalist, bold and to the point – That’s how I like to describe the 2020 version of Officine Panerai’s Luminor Logo 44mm (PAM1084) and Luminor Base Logo 44mm (PAM1086). One model, two different interpretations, each a tribute to the legendary history of the brand.
Both these watches feature Panerai’s iconic cushion-shaped 44mm case. The cases are constructed from a solid block of polished AISI 316L stainless steel, and come with a polished bezel and the signature crown protector. The sharp, singular lines were inspired by the first civilian models of the 1990s. These Luminor’s are powered by
This Luminor is powered by Caliber P.6000, which was conceived and developed within the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. A mechanical movement with manual winding equipped with a device to stop the balance when the crown is pulled out and a three-day power reserve delivered by a single barrel. The movement is reliable and solid thanks to the double bridge supporting the regulator.
A feature shared by both – the Luminor Logo 44mm (PAM1084) and Luminor Base Logo 44mm (PAM1086) models is the matt black dial, Arabic numerals and engraved indexes filled with neon green Super-LumiNova and the “OP” logo at 6 o’clock. PAM1084 is differentiated only by the presence of a small seconds indicator at 9 o’clock.
Water resistant up to 10 bar (about 100 meters deep), the new manual Luminor models are accompanied by a calfskin strap, in black or light brown with beige stitching and a pin buckle in brushed steel. The straps affix to the lugs using the Panerai Screw System. An additional black rubber strap completes the package, along with a special screwdriver to change the straps and for removing the buckle.
