Bucherer BLUE is a unique lifestyle collection created by leading retailer Bucherer, working with selected partners both inside and outside the industry. No fewer than 44 special editions have been unveiled to date. Bucherer already teamed up with Panerai with three limited editions presented since the launch of the concept in 2016, including the Panerai Luminor Marina Titanio/DLC Bucherer BLUE in 2019. Here comes the fourth chapter of this long-standing collaboration, the Panerai Luminor GMT Bucherer BLUE, reference PAM01176.
Based on the classic Luminor GMT, this new Bucherer BLUE limited-edition depicts a black-on-black scheme – for the case, dial and strap – highlighted by the retailer’s signature blue accents. With the classic proportion and shape of the model, the 44mm matte black ceramic case stands out with its rubberized blue crown; the small seconds hand, the tip of the GMT hand and the strap stitching also come in blue. Last but not least, the Super-LumiNova coating of the markers and of the hands radiates in electric blue in the dark.
Thanks to the screw-down caseback (emblazoned with the Bucherer BLUE logo) and the trademark crown protection and locking device, the water-resistance of this PAM01176 is rated 300 metres, making it a solid sports watch with diving credentials.
The Panerai Luminor GMT Bucherer BLUE is powered by the modern in-house calibre P.9010. This large – 37.10mm diameter – automatic movement runs at 4Hz and boasts a 72-hour power reserve, thanks to two barrels. It displays the hours, minutes, small seconds, a central second-time zone and the date. The stop-seconds mechanism enables fast and precise setting.
The watch is worn on an eco-friendly black textile strap made from recycled PET. There is also a spare black rubber strap, which can be installed thanks to the Panerai strap-changing tool delivered with the watch.
