Panerai Tuttonero Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT Automatic Ceramica
Written by Mark Bernardo,
Inside the dusky case is Panerai’s P.9001 caliber, developed and constructed at the brand’s manufacture in Neuchatel, Switzerland. It is an automatic movement with (as implied in the model name) a three-day power reserve and a seconds-reset function. Consistent with the watch’s all-black aesthetic, the movement, which is visible through a dark-tinted sapphire crystal in the caseback, has gone through a blackening process to give it the same sleek, matte-black look as the case. The name “Tuttonero” is engraved on the caseback. The watch, which is limited to 500 pieces, carries a U.S. retail price of $16,300.
