Panerai Luminor - What’s your favorite?

Panerai has a history of military utilization dating back to the 1940s. However, they were not commercially available to the public until 1993. All three watches feature a crown guard, oversized numerals, case size of 44mm, and a bright lume. The iconic Panerai case shape was born out of the functional need of the Italian Navy - making the watches a very practical tool watch.

The PAM00024 features an automatic chronometer and is a modern take on a classical model created in 1956 by the Egyptian Navy. It also has an eight-day Angelus movement and a seconds dial at 9 o’clock. The day date can be seen at the 3 o’clock mark.

The PAM00111 is a classic option for your first Panerai watch. It features a hand-wound COSC certified OP XI Calibre with 17 jewels. The “Marina” designation in the name is a reference to the sub-seconds at the 9 o’clock mark.

The PAM00088 features a GMT complication with an independently adjustable 24-hour hand and a date at 3 o’clock.
