Luminor Piccolo Due, the first Panerai model created expressly for women, is a fast-rising star in the Panerai universe, though one of its most recent introductions. True to the brand’s spirit of tireless, thoughtful evolution, the latest renditions of the Piccolo Due maintain its essential character but embrace new aesthetic dimensions destined to expand its appeal.Two new expressions of ascendant icon Piccolo Due, PAM01247 and PAM01248, reveal their beauty in starkly opposing color palettes, dark and light.
The signature Luminor Due case, including the patented crown safety lock device, in a 38mm size is the foundation for both watches. A deep anthracite color suffuses PAM01247, starting with its sandwich dial; sun-brushed finishing reveals unexpected gradations as light moves across its surface.The color continuity extends to the date window at 3 o’clock, which shares the same rich, intense tone. Numerals, indices and hands filled with white Super-LumiNova™ that glows green in the darkness provides high legibility, and the golden finish of the hands lends warmth to the dial. The accompanying strap in polished black alligator completes the strong, monochromatic presence.
PAM01248 offers contrasting coloring in the identical format: an ivory sun-brushed dial is matched with beige Super-LumiNova™ and gold color hands that amplify its radiance. A polished red alligator strap encircles the wrist in sumptuous, extravagant color. Water-resistant to 3 bar (~30 meters), PAM01247 and PAM01248 feature alligator straps with trapezoidal pin buckles in polished steel. Both models include a Quick Release strap system that removes the need to employ tools to change straps. This convenient mechanism allows for greater versatility and personalization of the watch, freely choosing different colors and materials to complement any look and accessory.
Founded in Florence in 1860 as a workshop, shop and subsequently school of watch-making, for many decades Panerai supplied the Italian Navy and its specialist diving corps in particular with precision instruments. The designs developed by Panerai in that time, including the Luminor and Radiomir, were covered by the Military Secrets Act for many years and were launched on the international market only after the brand was acquired by the Richemont Group in 1997.
Today Panerai develops and crafts its movements and watches at its Neuchâtel manufacture.The latter are a seamless melding of Italian design flair and history with Swiss horological expertise. Panerai watches are sold across the world through an exclusive network of distributors and Panerai boutiques.
