It’s a match

PAN­ERAI SHOW­CASED ITS PORT­FO­LIO of watches at the Quintessen­tially Wed­dings Ate­lier, held for the first time in the UAE last month.

Pre­vi­ously hosted in Lon­don, the Qwatelier made its first over­seas foray in Dubai with the aim of bring­ing to­gether a vast ar­ray of lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional lux­ury brands un­der one roof. With more than 50 ex­hibitors from var­i­ous brands, as well as over 1,500 guests, the fourth edi­tion of this wed­ding show pro­vided brides, grooms and their fam­i­lies an ex­cep­tional wed­ding ex­pe­ri­ence.

As an ex­hibitor, Pan­erai show­cased its time­pieces that com­bine the pure­ness and au­then­tic­ity of Ital­ian de­sign with the Swiss knowhow of the Pan­erai man­u­fac­ture based in Neuchâ­tel, Switzer­land. Ex­hib­ited vin­tage nov­el­ties in­cluded the Luminor Due col­lec­tion, specif­i­cally the Luminor Due 3 Days Oro Rosso 42mm. This watch is in­spired by the lines of the clas­sic Luminor of the 1950s, a red gold case achieved by a 40 per cent re­duc­tion in its thick­ness com­pared to the his­toric one and sup­plied with a su­per el­e­gant light blue al­li­ga­tor strap.

BRE­ITLING RE­CENTLY LAUNCHED THE Chronospace Evo Night Mis­sion in the Mid­dle East. Equipped with a light but sturdy black ti­ta­nium case fram­ing a blue dial, the elec­tronic chrono­graph adopts a strong and orig­i­nal new per­sona, while main­tain­ing the usual Bre­itling qual­i­ties as an in­stru­ment for avi­a­tion pro­fes­sion­als.

There’s a black satin-brushed ti­ta­nium case, which is achieved by a high-re­sis­tance car­bon-based treat­ment. Like all Bre­itling ‘in­stru­ment pan­els’, the in­di­ca­tions are distin­guished by their op­ti­mal leg­i­bil­ity, with large square nu­mer­als and hands ac­cen­tu­ated by a lu­mi­nes­cent coat­ing. Ac­cen­tu­ated by a rub­ber strap em­bossed with the Bre­itling sig­na­ture, the watch ex­udes a sense of ac­com­plish­ment in blue and black.

The uni­di­rec­tional ro­tat­ing bezel en­sures an ex­cel­lent grip thanks to its four rider tabs—a Bre­itling sig­na­ture serv­ing to mark off times. The case is wa­ter-re­sis­tant to 100 me­tres, and equipped with pro­tec­tive re­in­force­ments for its screw-lock crown. Be­neath its ex­clu­sively ana­log dis­plays, the Chronospace Evo Night Mis­sion con­ceals a Su­perquartz move­ment 10 times more ac­cu­rate than stan­dard quartz.

Chronome­ter-cer­ti­fied by the COSC (Swiss Of­fi­cial Chronome­ter Test­ing In­sti­tute), this Cal­iber 73 com­bines sev­eral func­tions that are use­ful to pi­lots and ad­ven­tur­ers. The chrono­graph no­tably fea­tures a split-se­conds func­tion with an ad­di­tional cen­tral hand serv­ing to mea­sure in­ter­me­di­ate times, while the fast time­zone ad­just­ment sys­tem en­sures un­in­ter­rupted pre­ci­sion of the min­utes and se­conds dis­plays.
