Panerai Launches Exclusive Dubai Limited Edition Timepieces Inspired By The Burj Khalifa
(5 September 2012)
Luminor and Radiomir bring to life the essence of Dubai’s iconic superstructure


Officine Panerai pays tribute to Dubai with two new Special Edition watches, sold exclusively in the Panerai boutique in The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping and entertainment destination. Both the watches are personalised with the same engraving on the case back, showing Burj Khalifa, Dubai’s iconic architectural jewel developed by Emaar Properties PJSC, and the world’s tallest building. The case with Burj Khalifa pays homage to Dubai’s sterling ambition and achievements.

The first Special Edition dedicated to Dubai (PAM00453), of which 75 units have been made, is a Luminor Marina– 44 mm with a case in polished steel and the bridge protecting the crown in brushed steel. The watch has a classic Panerai black dial, with its elegantly simple alternation of hour makers and figures coated with a special ecru Super-LumiNova®; the decoration consists simply of the words “Luminor Marina” and “Panerai” with a picture of a slow-speed torpedo, the vessel on which the frogmen of the Royal Italian Navy carried out their historic missions in the 1940s wearing the first Panerai watches on their wrists. The hour and minute hands, like the small seconds hand at 9 o’clock, are coated with the same luminous substance, thus combining maximum visibility with a vintage look, which is also pointed up by the strap of antiqued leather. The movement is the hand-wound calibre OP II.

The second Special Edition (PAM00486), of which only 10 units have been made, is a Radiomir 10 Days GMT – 47 mm, with the elegant cushion case in polished steel. All the elements on the black sandwich dial, as well as the hands, are in ecru Super-LumiNova®: the figures, the linear indication of the 10-day power reserve, the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock, the calendar and the inscription “Radiomir Panerai”. The strap is of vintage leather and the movement is the automatic calibre P.2003, created entirely within the Officine Panerai manufacture at Neuchâtel.

The two watches are part of a series of Special Editions created by Officine Panerai for the clients of some of the Panerai boutiques throughout the world.
