Like other truly successful watch companies, Panerai watches all reflect a shared feature and language unique to the brand. Its most distinctive style is a large cushion case sporting highly legible dial and a wide variation of highly polished steel bracelets and rubber or leather straps. The Panerai Luminor 1950 GMT, one of the brand’s flagship models, enjoys considerable popularity in the contemporary watch market. This model’s cushion case is fashioned from solid brushed stainless steel, with a watertight polished steel crown that is protected by Panerai’s trademark crown protecting device – a half crescent device that keeps the crown locked unless the release lever is pulled back. The 44mm round case is topped by a non-too fancy dial with amazing legibility day or night. This amazing feat, which is also a Panerai distinction, is achieved through its non-radioactive Luminor material that sheds luminescence to the markers. It is a perfect wear for men of action and distinction looking for versatility, legibility and presence.
