The watch is automatic mechanical with the exclusive Panerai OP VIII caliber and 21 jewels. Its mechanism also contains the Panerai personalized oscillating weight and a technology called Glucydur balance and Incabloc anti-shock device.
The power reserve on the Panerai Luminor GMT is 48 hours and it has a water resistance of approximately 300 meters. So, you can easily take the watch for a swim or wear it during heavy rain but it might not be a good idea to take it for a dive as the underwater pressure might ruin the case and crystal.
The size of the Panerai Luminor GMT is normal, as the watch is suitable for both larger wrists and smaller ones, with a diameter of 44 mm made with polished steel on the front and back. It is an appropriate watch both for a casual wear and a more elegant attire as its design allows for thousands of combinations with various outfits.
The dial has been coated with luminous so that it shows the time even in the dark and it’s designed with Arabic numerals and markers. There is also a 24h indication on the edge and a date at 3 o’clock. The sapphire crystal is formed of corundum and its 3.5 mm thick with magnifying lens over the date and an anti-reflective coating so that you can easily see the time in any light conditions. When it comes to the strap some might prefer a certain type of strap but the alligator strap can be easily personalized and polished. It also has a steel adjustable buckle and the user is also supplied with a second strap that can be interchanged.
The whole design of the Panerai Luminor GMT is simple; it has a very basic color scheme which allows the wearer to combine the watch with any type of outfit. The interchangeable straps can also offer a great deal of flexibility in terms of fashion. The numbers on the dial are in Panerai’s style with larger numbers for 12 and 6 and smaller ones on the rest of the dial. The minute and hour hands are bulkier and very appropriate with the whole design of the watch while the seconds hand is distinct through its slimmer appearance. Overall the watch is a great pick for someone who wants something timeless and with a classic appearance.
