The new Luminor Luna Rossa GMT – 44 mm is a cutting-edge sports watch born as a result of partnership between Panerai and the Luna Rossa Team that first launched the challenge to the Defender of the 36th America’s Cup, the final act of which is expected in Auckland, New Zealand, in 2021.
The Panerai Luminor Luna Rossa GMT – 44 mm incorporates cutting-edge materials like titanium, a metal with hypoallergenic properties and unrivaled lightness and corrosion resistance. With the addition of special carbon-based DLC coating the metal has an increased degree of wear resistance.
Introduced to support Team Luna Rossa in the race for the 36th America’s Cup, the Luminor Luna Rossa GMT 44 mm highlights and reaffirms its role as Official Watch with a personalized inscription on the dial as well as an intricate engraving on the case back.
The watch dial is covered in a thin layer of technical fabric from the sailing equipment of the AC75 monohull of Luna Rossa.
The Caliber P.9010/GMT, an exemplary self-winding movement designed and developed entirely by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, incorporates dual barrels that store sufficient energy for a three-day power reserve and rapid time adjustment connected to the modification of the date. The GMT function is crucial for synchronizing with the time zone of Luna Rossa as it is approaching to the 36th America’s Cup.
Water-resistant up to 30 bar (about 300 meters deep), the new Luminor Luna Rossa GMT – 44 mm is equipped with a Ponte Vecchio calfskin strap in black with white stitching.
An additional black rubber strap is included, along with a box wrapped in technical sail fabric and personalized with the Panerai and Luna Rossa logos. Also enclosed is a certificate attesting to the authenticity of the technical material from Luna Rossa that composes the coating of the dial.
