Replica Panerai Luminor Due, the Luminor Due’s case is about 40 percent slimmer than that of the original Luminor. With a height of approximately 10.8 mm, the new model is slim enough to slip under the cuff of a dress shirt. It also looks attractive on a woman’s wrist, where it doesn’t appear overly masculine. The typical features of a Luminor are readily recognizable – and not only by connoisseurs. The pillow-shaped case is practically unmistakable. It traces its ancestry to the Radiomir from 1940. For the Luminor Due, too, the case and its massive strap lugs are milled from a solid block of steel. The lugs form a robust unit with the middle part of the case. And the glossy-finished architecture with its facets and softly shining sides looks more charming than earlier models. The elegance is further accentuated by the narrow and steeply sloping bezel, which leaves the dial plenty of room for stylish classicism. The dial embodies a classically minimalist arrangement with four Arabic numerals at the cardinal points, baton-shaped indexes between them, and a subdial for the seconds at 9 o’clock. This ensemble is familiar from countless other Panerai references. The dial’s sandwich-style construction is likewise unmistakable. In this instance, the “sandwich” has a black, sunburst-polished upper part and a pale beige lower level. They team up with the hands to create a tasteful, retro charm.
