A masculine watch as any, the 44mm Panerai Luminor California 8 Days DLC, stands out with its new cuff strap design. The titanium coated with Diamond-Like Carbon case – with an extra carbon layer and a matt anthracite finish – houses a stunning black California dial with an original combination of both Roman and Arabic numerals for the indexes. The hands have also been oxidised at a controlled temperature to achieve the metallic blue, iconic to the some of Panerai's historic models.
The Luminor stands out because of its leather strap which can be worn as a basic version as well as a cuff strap and are personalised with a contrasting beige stitching and the heat stamped OP logo. The strap is completed with a DLC-coated buckle.
The Luminor California 8 Days DLC comes equipped with a hand-wound P.5000 calibre – developed and produced entirely in-house – with an eight day long power reserve which is achieved by two spring barrels connected in series. The watch is resistant to 300 meters.
