Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT Automatic Ceramica
Impressive announcements out of the SIHH 2012 convention (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie) are in no short supply this week. Continuing the trend of producing handsome watches is a marriage of true vintage style and rugged, modern machining in a brilliant reinterpretation of the 1950 3 Days GMT Ceramic Automatic from Panerai. Housed in a brushed black 44mm ceramic case is Panerai’s excellent in-house mechanical P.9001 movement powering the date, seconds, minutes, hours, and a fourth GMT timezone hand. The back of the watch also features a uniquely ‘smoked’ sapphire crystal to reveal the watch’s remaining power reserve, and to view in motion, that superlative 29-jewel movement that Panerai is become synonymous with.
