First introduced in 2016, the Luminor Due collection seems like an anomaly in Panerai’s repertoire. Instead of offering the brand’s signature chunky case designs, it presents slim cases that are a perfect fit for smaller wrists. Now the watchmaker has expanded the range and added four new iterations that feature the beloved moonphase complication.

Luminor Due Luna models have been crafted from high-quality steel, while one is made from the watchmaker’s Goldtech material — an alloy containing platinum and a high percentage of copper. Each of the new Panerai watches has been carefully designed and polished. The steel models feature sun-brushed dials and the Goldtech version comes with an alluring mother-of-pearl display.
However, the centre of attraction here is the moonphase
complication. It is located at the three o’clock position and consists of a rotating disc featuring a 24-carat gold moon, set against a starry midnight sky in all the models. Apart from this, the display also comprises a small seconds window at the nine o’clock position and a central, two-hand timekeeping system. The hour markers and hands have been coated with luminous material.
The new Panerai Luminor Due Luna models are powered by the Swiss watchmaker’s P.900 calibre. The movement runs at a frequency of 28,800vph and offers a power reserve of an impressive three days. Although the steel versions come with a solid caseback, we can view the movement through a transparent caseback of the Goldtech
Meanwhile, all the Panerai Luminor Due Luna watches feature a quick-release system to permit changing straps without using tools, an added benefit for today’s woman who wants to change the straps quickly at home without visiting a boutique. As if all this wasn’t enough, Panerai has also introduced Luminor Due satin straps, leather straps with a satin-like texture and sheen, which further multiply the options available to the customers.
