With the gradual revival of watch culture today, watches have become the wrist incarnation of most people’s identities and tastes, just as many people are still pursuing Rolex, Omega, IWC, etc … These types often ‘hit When it came to the Swiss brand of “watches”, a high-end watchmaking brand from Italy re-established a distinctive watch culture with its unique shape and low-key style. It was a watch with military pedigree born in 1860. Brand-Panerai.
Panerai’s distinctiveness comes from a glamorous and highly recognizable appearance. The watch’s large case, wide strap, exaggerated bridge, minimal scale and dial design At first glance, you will never forget, no brand can do this. Every Panerai watch contains a moving story, every detail shows the brand’s glorious history and distinctive personality. Some people say that Panerai always maintains a permanent shape. Where a brand is classic and unique.
As the Panerai brand continues to be well known to the public, watch boutiques have sprung up and spread across major regions in China. Currently, mainstream cities (such as Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, Chengdu, etc.) have become Panerai. Haihai’s first choice of shop opening, store locations are also positioned in high-end, big-name fashion financial business district, so it also highlights Panerai’s brand positioning. From the several specialty stores in the picture, we can see that the store all displays simple and classic Italian design style, with clean lines and simple decoration. All of them use glass panels and glass curtain walls to highlight the brightness and transparency of the store. It is reported that the materials used in the shop have been carefully selected, and the design inspiration is also derived from the history and tradition of the Florence brand boutiques.
In order to commemorate the opening of Panerai stores, the brand has created special historical models for different stores. Each city has limited editions of two models, namely Radiomir and Luminor editions, of which Radiomir is limited to 10 pieces each. Luminor 50 each. Today’s Watch House will introduce you to several limited edition models representing different regions. However, since the Radiomir series has basically been sold out and no real objects have been photographed, this article will focus on the existing Luminor versions.
Radiomir Series Urban Limited Edition Watch (47mm 10-day Power Reserve Dual Time Automatic Steel Watch)
Luminor Urban Limited Edition (44mm)
The models that will be introduced next are urban limited edition watches from Chengdu, Tianjin, Nanjing, and Shenyang. Since the models taken this time are all Luminor series, the editors will focus on all the watches. First, let me introduce the front appearance of this series of watches:
Panerai Luminor series stores’ limited edition watches are designed in classic Luminor case, all made of stainless steel, the surface is carefully polished and polished, bright and textured, the crown bridge device is made of frosted steel The watch diameter uses a uniform 44 mm, which is just the right size for most wearers.
The dials of the watch use a sandwich structure in pure black tones. The simple and elegant bar-shaped hour markers and Arabic numerals on the dial are coated with light brown Super-LumiNova® coating. The dial is marked with the words ‘Luminor Marina’ and ‘Panerai’. And the embossed pattern of the slow torpedo is painted at 6 o’clock. I believe this sign is familiar to cousins who like Panerai. However, it is an underwater vehicle driven by the Italian navy commandos and executed by it. For the difficult underwater task, the first Panerai watch was worn on their wrists at that time, so the torpedo mark became a unique mark of Panerai.
In order to highlight the classic charm of the watch, the watchmaker specially chose a dark brown leather strap with a matte surface, which is not only very comfortable, but also very retro. The watch is also equipped with the same OP II manual-winding mechanical movement.
