Officine Panerai has launched a Special Edition Luminor 1950 Sealand 3 Days Automatic Acciaio – 44mm timepiece with retailer and long-term partner Ali bin Ali, to be sold exclusively at Panerai boutiques in Doha, Riyadh and Jeddah.
The new Luminor 1950 Sealand (PAM00849) is personalised with a beautifully hand-engraved cover for the dial featuring white Arabian horses riding in the desert with palm trees and the sea in the background. Arabian horses are a true source of pride for the region – one of the oldest breeds in the world, reputed for their beauty, good nature, high-spirit and ability to learn quickly.
Finely engraved, yet robust and masculine, the 44mm Luminor case of this Special Edition is made of brushed steel, and features the patented iconic device that protects the crown. The gold calf strap with BA brushed steel buckle adds to the overall sturdy appearance of this work of art for the wrist that is water resistant to 100 metres.
Under the lid, surrounded by the polished steel bezel, we see the luminous hour and minute hands centred on a large grey dial, with date at 3 o’clock and seconds at 9 o’clock. Black indices and large Arabic numbers of 12 and 6 and are surrounded by luminous dot markers for easy reading at night. The inside of the decorated lid has a polished mirror effect for extra viewing pleasure.
Powered by the automatic mechanical Panerai P 9000 calibre that is entirely designed and crafted by the Panerai manufacture in Neuchâtel, this timepiece is sure to please connoisseurs and collectors. The watch is part of a series of Special Editions created by Officine Panerai for clients of Panerai boutiques throughout the world.
In a limited edition of 60 units, with a retail price of AED 85,000 (approx. $23,150 USD) it is sold exclusively at Officine Panerai Boutiques at the Doha Villaggio Mall in Qatar, and in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia at Al Tahlia in Riyadh and Jameel Square in Jeddah.
