A Closer Look at The Panerai Luminor 1950 10 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio 44mm Limited Edition

Panerai are the official sponsors of Design Miami in 2018 and they have chosen to mark the occasion with the launch of a limited edition watch, The Luminor 1950 10 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio 44mm. This will be available at the fair and there are only forty pieces that have been made. If there are any pieces remaining after the fair has finished then these will be sold exclusively in the US.

The name of the watch is one of the longest that Panerai have ever announced but it covers all the highlights that are included in this time piece. The power reserve for the watch is an impressive ten days. There is a GMT function on the watch which is one of the most useful aspects of the watch for people who travel around the world on a regular basis. The winding of the watch is automatic and the dial is 44mm in diameter. While the name of the watch gives you all the basic details of the main features there is so much more to the watch than simply the things that have been discussed above.

The use of a blue dial makes this watch stand out from the others in the Panerai collection. It is something a bit different that helps confirm its place as a limited edition piece. The dial complements the rest of the watch very well and the result is a very stylish piece. Twenty five jewels are used in total for the dials and this is just enough to create the right type of look for the watch without going too over the top with the design. The jewels also have an important role to play in the movement of the watch as they are part of the P.2003 caliber.

The crown of the watch is protected by a brushed device and this improves the longevity of the watch. Another feature is the quick hour setting which can be very useful when you are travelling to a different time zone or the clocks need changing. The hour hand on the clock can be moved forwards and backwards as needed without the minute hand having to be moved for a complete hour.

The watch is water resistant to 100 meters. This means that it will resist water but it should not be used when swimming. This should not present any problems as it is not designed to be a sports watch. The strap is made from canvas and will work just as well in a formal situation as it would in a more casual setting. The price also includes a leather strap which can be changed whenever you want. The GMT function is very useful if you are traveling for business and the whole design and elegance of the watch can help you make an excellent first impression on your trip.

The movement in the Luminor 1950 comes from the P.2003 caliber which has been designed in house by Panerai. This was the first automatic movement caliber that the company created and is a feature in many of their most popular watches. There are over 296 components in the P.2003 and it is 8mm in thickness. It was developed from the P.2000 and many of the features are the same. However, what makes the P.2003 different is that it has an automatic winding function and the ten day power reserve. The automatic winding is operated by an oscillated weight which is positioned on top of a ball bearing. When the weight rotates in both directions then the springs of the barrels are wound.

The price of the watch is $14,400 and only forty pieces have been created and this means that there is a lot of excitement around the product. There is a very good chance that all of the watches will sell at Design Miami as there will be a lot of people that would love the chance to own one. If they do not all sell then they will be available for the general public to purchase but they will not be shipped outside of the United States. The watch will continue working for many years and so the investment that you will be making is well worth it.
