Officine Panerai Strengthens Three Core Pillars At SIHH 2018

Officine Panerai SIHH 2018

Not A Crowd

Panerai is focusing on three main pillars this year: Luminor Due, Luminor and Innovation. At SIHH 2018, it was clear that it’s a big year for Luminor Due.

The collection, first introduced in 2017, has expanded with 38mm, 42mm and 45mm variants, and a variety of textile straps. One of it even comes with the Chinese inscription of ‘Fu’, meaning fortune, on its caseback. It’ll be a hit with the Asian market, but unfortunately will only be available in June, way after the Lunar New Year.

The Marina line under the Luminor collection also sees a number of new models. Apart from textile straps, it also uses a new P.6000 hand wound movement with a three-day power reserve.

As for the Innovation pillar, Panerai reimagines two timepieces. Lo Scienziato is now available in a titanium case that’s 30 per cent lighter than a solid case, thanks to Direct Metal Laser Sintering (more commonly known as 3D printing). L’Astronomo on the other hand, features Panerai’s first moonphase complication, and even comes with a couple of customisation options.

We’ll be posting daily roundups of SIHH throughout the week, along with in-depth analyses later on in the month, so stay tuned. In the mean time, follow us on Instagram and watch our InstaStories for the latest happenings at SIHH.
