Panerai Luminor North Pole GMT Revisited

Originally introduced in 2006, the Panerai Luminor North Pole GMT is considered by many to be one of the greatest and most iconic designs to ever be produced by the renowned Italian watchmaker. Released as a special edition and limited to only 500 units, the timepiece pays homage to Mike Horn and Borge Ousland, who became the first explorers to traverse the Arctic to the North Pole unassisted under the complete darkness of winter. Celebrating their seemingly impossible 61-day, 620-mile trek, the Panerai Luminor North Pole GMT pairs an anti-magnetic iron case with a leather strap and features an array of distinguishing characteristics, including “NORTH POLE” notation on the dial and an engraved caseback featuring the explorers’ signatures alongside a depiction of the Arctic ice cap. Six years later, the highly limited piece can still be found for under $10,000 USD.
