Panerai is the product of distinct traditions rooted in two different countries: the sophistication of Swiss watchmaking artistry and an illustrious history of design inheritance from Italy. They are the foundation of a respected brand that mixes advanced horological and aesthetic achievement. To celebrate its Swiss soul, the brand was inspired by the city of Geneva and conceived a new Luminor, which will be exclusive to the Geneva boutique.
To coincide with the debut of the Panerai boutique at 21 Rue de Rhône in Geneva, the brand will release the Luminor Geneva Boutique Special Edition in a limited edition of 121 pieces. A matte black 44mm case composed of titanium with DLC coating anchors the contemporary watch. And for the first time in the brand’s history, a grainy dial accompanies the P.5000 movement, a manually wound caliber with an eight-day power reserve, a characteristic shared with models Panerai produced in the past for underwater commandos.
Additionally, an image of the majestic Jet d’Eau fountain, Geneva’s most famous landmark, appears engraved on the caseback as a tribute to the city. Two straps, one in recycled-based PET and another in green rubber, complete the offering with strikingly different styling options for the sporty timepiece, which is water-resistant to 30 bar (~300 meters).
