War­riors from the Deep

Pan­erai took the oc­ca­sion of its Dive into Time ex­hi­bi­tion in Florence to launch a series of novel­ties

World of Watches (Singapore) - - News -

Opened from 18 to 21 May, Dive into Time ex­hi­bi­tion took up some 1,000 sqm of space in the crypt of the for­mer church of San Pan­crazio, which houses the Marino Marini Mu­seum in the cen­tre of Florence. Vis­i­tors were treated to pre­vi­ously un­seen para­pher­na­lia from Pan­erai’s past, from in­stru­ments and op­tics made by the Pan­erai fam­ily in the early 1900s, and watches cre­ated for the Royal Ital­ian Navy from the 1930s to 1950s.

Nev­er­the­less, it was not just Pan­erai’s past that was show­cased, but it’s fu­ture too, as Pan­erai un­veiled three sets of novel­ties. This in­cluded the Lu­mi­nor Due case with all the hall­marks of the clas­sic Lu­mi­nor case. How­ever, it is slim­mer, dressier, and fit­ted with ei­ther the man­ual-wind­ing P.1000 move­ment or au­to­matic P.4000 move­ment. Also pre­viewed was the Lu­mi­nor Ma­rina col­lec­tion fea­tur­ing the new au­to­matic P.9010 move­ment, which has the same di­am­e­ter as the au­to­matic P.9000 move­ment, but is just 6mm thick in­stead of 7.9mm. Pan­erai also de­buted its most com­pli­cated watch thus far: the Ra­diomir 1940 Minute Re­peater fea­tur­ing twin re­peater mech­a­nism that can chime the time for two time zones.
