The History of Panerai watches began in 1860 when Giovanni Panerai (1825-1897) opened his first watchmaker's shop in Florence, Italy and made contact with some prestigious Swiss watch manufacturers who helped the Panerai name enter the world of fame in the field of watches. And it has been there ever since.
Of the several outstanding pieces that Panerai has created, the Panerai Luminor GMT watch seems to be on men's preference list these days. In spite of keeping the eternal cell phone at hand, which undoubtedly shows the time in a very reliable manner, any of us needs a watch. To a man, the watch is more than a timepiece; it is an important accessory which actually completes the jewellery line. A brand name watch, a nice chain, a matching bracelet and sometimes a fancy ring can be found in any man's jewellery box at home.
The modern man will choose his watch keeping in mind several characteristics which you will certainly find in Panerai Luminor GMT Watch. Unlike women, who seem to be more interested in design than in technical details, men look for reliable watches. The Luminor watch is a flawless timepiece any way you look at it. Equipped with a perfectly clear sapphire crystal and a massive screwed-in case back, the locking lever of this watch keeps the crown sealed against water intrusion.Produced in stainless steel or titanium, both the 40 and 44mm versions are resistant to water pressure 300 metres beneath the sea. Besides, the watch can be easily read in the dark due to its dial's luminous indications (in Superluminova).
Travelling from one continent to another has increased tremendously in the last few decades. Maybe that is why watch makers consider it important to endow their products with the ability to show the time in different time zones. The Panerai Luminor GMT Watch is competitive from this point of view too. It can indicate the time in two time zones simultaneously which makes it a good choice for any traveller around the world.
The Panerai Luminor GMT Watch creator has not neglected the design at all. This watch is a very elegant piece which goes well with both a casual and a more formal outfit. The silvery white case and the dark dial make it conform to the modern tendencies turning it into the perfect match to any colour choice of your clothing. It is an unmistakably masculine statement that any man will be proud of.
Speaking of elegance, the alligator, calf leather or rubber strap that the Panerai Luminor GMT Watches have will give you the possibility of choosing what best suits your style. If you are looking for something classy, the titanium and steel version of this watch can be purchased with a very intricate bracelet created from overlapping titanium and steel links. Besides, the clasp will securely fasten the watch round your wrist so you needn't worry about any undesirable incidents.
Stylish and reliable, the Panerai Luminor GMT Watch is one of the most searched for creations of the modern Panerai line.
