Encapsulating the balance between timeless heritage and modern innovation, the Luminor Quaranta collection captures the distinctive aesthetic of the Luminor in a smaller dimension. The new Luminor Quaranta BiTempo continues the narrative featuring a dual time complication.
Under the hood of the 40mm steel case, the watch is powered by the automatic P.900/GMT calibre with a three-day power reserve, showcased through the sapphire crystal open back, highlighting Panerai’s Swiss technicity and skilled savoir-faire.
The addition of the GMT function enables wearers to simultaneously track local time and a second time zone, an essential feature for today’s cosmopolitan travellers. In low-light conditions, the gilded tip of the GMT hand illuminates in blue while the indexes glow in green, enhancing the watch’s legibility and aesthetic appeal.
This is complemented by a larger, more prominent date display for enhanced readability. Reflecting Panerai’s commitment to maintaining continuity with its rich history, the timepiece also features small seconds at 9 o’clock and distinct indexes reminiscent of previous models from the 2000s along with peculiar elements that define the Luminor line: the cushionshaped case and crown-protecting bridge.
The new reference is available either with a black or white dial, elegantly matched with an alligator strap, tone-on-tone stitching and brushed steel buckle contrasting with the polished steel bezel for a minimal yet dynamic look. For those seeking versatility and personalization, each wristwatch is equipped with the intuitive PAM Click Release System, allowing for easy strap changes, and also comes with a second rubber band. The PAM01365 displays a matte black dial, paired with white Super-Luminova®, and an additional black rubber strap; while the PAM01367 is declined in a matte white dial, combined with grey Super-Luminova®, and a blue rubber strap.
Inscribed with the name BiTempo, meaning “dual time” in Italian, the dial underscores the Maison’s roots and ode to Italian design tradition, a core pillar in Panerai’s enduring heritage of high-tech materials, reliable performance and innovative creations.
