Officine Panerai showed up loaded for bear as usual with a bit of something for everyone. In particular, the new Luminor 422 will have broad appeal among die-hard collectors and casual fans alike, as it is a variation on the theme established by their star from last year’s show, the Luminor 372. The 422 takes the 372 as a foundation and adds a running second hand at 9 o’clock, a power reserve indicator on the back and replaces the vintage-inspired Plexiglas crystal with a modern sapphire crystal for increased scratch resistance.
They also debuted the 438, otherwise known as the “Tuttonero”, which houses Panerai’s exclusive P.9001/B automatic movement in a high-tech ceramic case. Been there, done that you say? Well, for the first time they’re also offering a matching ceramic bracelet, and the effect is sinister, to say the least.
