The Luminor 1950 Tourbillion is one of the most unique watches on the market. Built as an homage to Galileo Galilei, one of the most important figures in the history of the human kind, this watch shows not only the time, but also comes with multiple functions such as the power reserve indicator on the back and more. This is by far however, the least innovative thing about this model.

  1. Direct Metal Laser Sintering

This new technology was built with the purpose of reducing the weight of the case. We all know how much weight can influence a watch, which is why the Luminor 1950 was built using a 3D printer. The printer used powdered titanium and created layers of 0.02 millimeters each. Then, each layer was placed on top of each other, thus developing the structure you see now. This makes the entire watch much lighter and much easier to be carrier around. According to the official website, the new Luminor 1950 is around 35% lighter than previous models.

  1. The Skeletonized Look

One of the most interesting things about the Luminor 1950 is the skeletonized look which allows the user to see the mechanism behind the watch. No longer is the principle behind the watch hidden, everything is presented clearly and without any covers. The look also contributes to the light weight of the watch because the skeletonized pieces are no longer as heavy as in previous models. On top of that, the look is also rather unique.

  1. The Alligator Strap

The Alligator Strap is a great addition to this model because it perfectly complements the titanium pieces of the watch, while also being resistant to time. The official instructions recommend that you wash the strap and leave it somewhere to dry, but not on hot surfaces or in direct sun-rays because they may damage the straps. They must be left to dry for long periods of time, on their own, in order for the strap to last for a very long time.

On top of all these great new additions, the Luminor 1950 is water resistant, it comes with many functions that make it unique and it comes with a night view functions that makes the Arabic numbers stand out in a luminescent manner so that the numbers are easier to read in the dark. The Luminor 1950 is more than a fancy watch, it is an innovation, one that is bound to last for years to come.

Panerai Luminor 8-Days Left-Handed Manual Titanium

Issued in a limited edition of 1000 items on the occasion of SIHH 2011, Panerai Luminor 8-Days left-handed watch (ref. PAM00368) continues a tradition started by the Florentine watch making house in 1940. While this type of watches can be originally explained as a practical solution for divers who had to wear sophisticated equipment (compass, deapth measuring device, etc.) on their wrist, they are nowadays just a comfortable choice for those who prefer to wear their watch on the left hand.

The splendid brushed titanium case bears the classic Panerai format and its sapphire crystal back offers an impressive view over the P.2002 / 9 mechanical manual movement. At the same time, it enables wearers to check the remaining power reserve. The clasp that closes the old brown leather strap is also made of brushed titanium – a material that has been especially chosen for its lightness, strength and antiallergic properties.
