Arguably the iconic case shape, the 'Luminor' model range first appeared in the late 1940s and features the famous patented crown protector, the lugs are also more substantial. Again, the name comes from the material which helps the numerals glow in the dark. Luminor was patented by Panerai in the late 1940s and was much safer than the alternative, although still radioactive.
Both sides of the range feature models made in steel, titanium, ceramic, precious metals and even bronze. Panerai do not shy away from complications – the Panerai L'Astronomo featured a Tourbillion, date and month indicator, a power reserve and the Equation of Time function all wrapped up in a titanium case. Over the years they have collaborated with some of the world’s most famous luxury brands. In 2002 Purdey, one of the most important gun and rifle makers, hand engraved a limited number of watches for Panerai. In 2005 they entered into a five-year contract with Ferrari to produce Ferrari branded watches. With sizes between 38mm and 60mm there is a Panerai to fit every wrist.
