The Luminor GMT Automatic Acciaio PAM 297 case pays homage to the legendary watches which PANERAI designed for the navy during World War II. The special feature of this noble travel companion is its second time zone. The PANERAI PAM 297 is waterproof and easily read in absolute darkness.
The PANERAI PAM 297 has an automatic mechanical movement, the PANERAI exclusive OP VIII calibre. On the dial, the watch displays not only hours, minutes, small seconds and date, but also a second time zone – the Luminor GMT’s special feature. The PAM 297’s 44mm diameter case is made from AISI 316L brushed steel, which gives a smooth satin finish. As is customary, the case also incorporates the classic PANERAI crown protection bridge.
The traditional black dial with fluorescent Arabic numerals and hour markers has the date at 3 o'clock, seconds at 9 o'clock, and a 24-hour linear display around the inner bezel ring. Also water-resistant, the Luminor GMT is guaranteed to a depth of 300 meters (30 bar). A soft-steel bracelet, in a vertically-brushed satin finish with all interior links hand-polished, aesthetically complements the watch casing, and a steel screwdriver and special tool are supplied for easy bracelet replacement.
With a PANERAI PAM 297, business travel becomes easier because this timepiece has a second time zone, an extremely useful function and a real asset for anyone whose work involves a lot of travel abroad. Another highlight of this PANERAI is the Super-LumiNova®-treated display which guarantees its luminescent digits and markers remain visible even in total darkness. Reading the date is also effortless thanks to an integrated magnifier in the anti-reflective sapphire crystal window. This unique Swiss PANERAI model has brushed-metal bracelet links in a satin finish.
The result is an aesthetically perfect synthesis. The PANERAI Luminor GMT Automatic Acciaio PAM 297 will give years of trouble-free service and is thoroughly recommended for business travellers, who will find it indispensable.
