  • Catalogue Essay

    Produced in a limited edition of 500 examples, the Panerai Luminor 8-Days set features the Luminor Black Seal ref. PAM00594 and the Luminor Daylight ref. PAM00650. The models were inspired by the pre-vendome era (1993-1997), as well as the Daylight commissioned piece by Sylvester Stallone in 1996. Sized at 44mm diameter, the Black Seal features a stealthy black appeal with DLC-coated stainless steel while the Luminor Daylight is finished with a high polished stainless steel case. Fitted with the in-house hand-wound P.5000 movement, the timepieces provides a power reserve of 8 days. Offered by the original owner, the pair is preserved in an new-old-stock condition and accompanied by an impressive box set that includes a torpedo model and a rare publication about the military equipment of the Royal Italian Navy special force.

  • Artist Biography

    Panerai

    Italian • 1860

    Known for its robust designs and large case sizes, Officine Panerai was established in 1860 by Giovanni Panerai in Florence, Italy. Around 1900, Giovanni's grandson Guido Panerai took over, and Panerai became the supplier to the Regia Marina — the Royal Italian Navy. After supplying the navy with high-precision instruments for a number of years, Officine Panerai created Radiomir, a radium-based powder that gives luminosity to the dials of sighting instruments and devices. By 1936, the Royal Italian Navy approached Panerai again with the request to design a watch resistant to extreme underwater conditions. The watch they created became known as the "Radiomir".

    Panerai's watches made during the early twentieth century era were comprised of cases designed and manufactured by Rolex SA, with Cortébert, a Swiss manufacturer, supplying the majority of their movements. The most recognizable designs from the firm are the Radiomir and Luminor. To date, vintage models from the first half of the 1900s, such as the reference 3646 and 6152 models, remain the most desirable among collectors.
