Panerai Luminor Collection: Exquisite Timepieces for Watch Aficionados

by on November 1st, 2009

1950 Luminor Marina 3-Days (retail $7,400) and 1950 Luminor 8-Days GMT (retail $30,200)

After opening Panerai’s New York City boutique, I developed a knack for spotting those Panerai watches treasured by watch aficionados. Over the past week, we have put two of these watches on display: the PAM-312 (the watch I wear!) and the PAM-289.

New for 2009, the PAM-312, with its in-house movement capable of operating for 72-hours without winding, is an exciting way to break into Panerai ownership. On the other hand, for the more advanced collector who travels frequently, there is nothing better than the PAM-289, a limited production watch with the coveted 1950’s-style Luminor case in rose gold.
