The classic Luminor 1950 has a case height of 17.95mm. It has its historical origin. In the 1930’s, Guido Panerai developed the first diver’s watch for the Italian navy. Pocket watch movements from Montres Rolex SA were installed as the drive. Since then the powerful case has been a trademark of the OFFICINE PANERAI manufacture. Due to the large demand, PANERAI developed a new calibre P.1000/10 for the Luminor Due 3 Days Oro Rosso PAM00677 in order to reduce the case height to an absolute minimum.
The new PAM 677 Luminor Due 3 Days Oro Rosso makes a good impression with the pleasant wearing comfort and comfortable fit without loosing the typical PANERAI identity in the process. Due to the flat height of the PAM 677, the 42mm wide “Luminor Due” case also has a very low net weight.
The new case of the Luminor Due 3 Days Oro Rosso PAM 677 is just 10.5mm high. Thus, the new case of the new “Luminor Due” is the flattest Luminor case of OFFICINE PANERAI. Due to the use of the new calibre P.1000/10, the watchmakers of PANERAI realised an even more pleasant wearing comfort. The case of PAM00677 is a total of 7mm thinner than a Luminor 1950. The energy to drive the Luminor Due 3 Days Oro Rosso is delivered by the skeletonised calibre P.1000/10 with manual winding. The power reserve when fully wound is 3 days.
As Guido Panerai developed his diver’s watches in the 1940’s, he constructed the device protecting the crown in order to prevent the penetration of water due to accidental opening of the crown under water. This resulted in the Luminor 1950 models. The Radiomir 1940 case was the basis for the new model. In the new Luminor Due 3 Days Oro Rosso PAM00677, the device protecting the crown in on the 3 o’clock position. On the reverse side of the case, there is a sapphire glass base,making the skeletonised calibre P.1000/10 completely visible.
OFFICNE PANERAI installed a wonderful anthracite coloured sun-brushed sandwich dial into PAM 677. Arabic numbers and indexes. Small seconds at 9 o’clock. Ex works, OFFICINE PANERAI mounts a light blue alligator leather strap with light blue seams. This combination suits the 18K red gold case of the PAM 677 Luminor Due 3 Days Oro Rosso extremely well.
