The annual Geneva International Watch Fair is about to begin. The reporting team in front of the Watch House has arrived in Geneva and will bring you the latest and fastest comprehensive watch fair report. This year Panerai’s Luminor 1950 series launched two left-handed watches, a 47-mm titanium alloy 8-day power reserve chronograph, number PAM00579, and a 47-mm stainless steel 3-day power reserve watch , Number PAM00557.
With a single push of the button, you can start, stop, and reset to measure the time period. This chronograph movement is equipped with column wheel parts and is generally only used for the most sophisticated movements to achieve the most accurate performance. In addition, the movement is equipped with a friction clutch to ensure that the chronograph hands run clearly and smoothly. The most striking thing is the minute counter at the nine o’clock position, because the hands do not rotate continuously, but instead move forward by jumping one space after each minute. The P.2004 / 9 movement is also equipped with a zero hand reset device. When the crown is pulled out, the small second hand immediately stops and returns to the zero position. The second hand only restarts when the winding crown is pushed back to its initial position, so when synchronizing the watch time with a time signal, it can be accurate to the second.
The case of this 3-day power reserve left-handed watch is made of stainless steel, and its details are different from those of the classic Luminor 1950 case: the corners of the case are sharp and the pillow shape is looming. This detail of the new case is directly taken from some Panerai’s pillow-shaped Radiomir watch introduced in 1936 and gradually transformed into a large-scale Luminor watch with bridge protection. The classic watch design of this period elaborated the important transformation of the brand at that time.
