Panerai reasserts itself as a major player in lust-worthy watch markets with the simple yet highly satisfying styling of this new
Luminor Chrono Daylight watch. Fervent fans of the brand will recognize the carefully evolved looks of the watch, while watch
lovers of all varieties will have to agree that this Panerai watch defines the appeal of an Italian chronograph timepiece. Unlike
the matte white or black dials panerai 111 often seen on Panerai faces, the Luminor Chrono Daylight’s dial is bathed in a glistening
metallic blue that plays nicely with the many points of SuperLumiNova coated markers on the functional facade.
Look closely and you’ll notice a new style of metal bracelet (the links are more angular and masculine looking) from the brand
that introduces major changes to its line cautiously. The dial of the watch has more markers on it than most Panerai watches,
with each being smaller. Emphasis is on the 12-hour chronograph, which has always been the case on Luminor Chrono Daylight
New for this version are round luminor power reserve chronograph pushers as opposed to squared ones. Around the dial you’ll find a tachometer scale
that is often paired with chronograph watches, but consider it as being there more for cosmetic style than anything else, as the
scales are only seldom used by anyone. The chronograph subdials enjoy a small circular grain decoration inside, while the watch
has a large chronograph second hand. Oddly, Panerai gave the watch what some might consider stubby hour and minute hands that
should be a bit longer.
The 44mm-wide case, along with a typically wide bracelet, are crafted in high-grade titanium for a strong and light quality to
the watch. The watch is water resistant to 100 meters, which may seem low for what are typically thought to be dive watches.
Inside, the timepiece is a panerai replicas
COSC Chronometer certified Panerai OP XII caliber automatic mechanical movement.
Interestingly enough, the fact that the timepieces are all Chronometers is curiously left off the face, where such details are
often boasted. Open the caseback of the watch and you’ll find a beautifully decorated movement surface with a Panerai signed
automatic rotor. This PAM 327 idealizes our fascination with the popular Italian brand. Some will swoon over the blue “arctic”
face, while others will opt for a more traditional style of Panerai with its all-black and green luminary tones. Either way, the
watch certainly emits an unpretentious and handsome look.
