Here we have the new Luminor 1950 8 Days Chrono Monopulsante GMT, the chronograph watch will be released in 500 millesimed units - 250 with a steel case and 250 with a 18 karat pink gold case. The watch features the same sophisticated mechanical movement as the previous versions as well as the traditional Luminor 1950 case, which is a nice large size at 44 mm in diameter.

The manually wound movement is the P.2004 which was designed and manufactured entirely by Panerai, and is unique among chronograph movements. The movement has 321 component parts which includes 29 jewels and is viewable through the transpart case-back. The movement has many great features, like a power reserve of 8 days, a linear indication of the amount of running time remaining, and a second time zone with day/night indication. It also has a device for zeroing the seconds hand and a single-button chronograph with column wheel and friction clutch.

The steel case version has a brushed case with polished steel bezel. The dial is black with luminous Arabic numerals and hour markers. There is a minute counter at 3 o’clock, a small seconds and day/night indicator at 9 o’clock, a horizontal power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock, and a central chronograph hand. The sapphire crystal is made from corundum at 2 mm thickness, and has been treated with an anti-reflective coating. The strap is a beautiful PANERAI personalised alligator strap which has a large-size brushed steel buckle. The steel version has a black alligator strap and the gold version has a brown alligator strap. The reference for this watch is PAM00275. It is water-resistance to 100 meters.
