Panerai Luminor 1950 10 Days GMT Ceramicahttp://www.watchtime.com/2010/02/panerai-luminor-1950-10-days-gmt-ceramica/
The case on the new Luminor 1950 10 Days GMT Ceramica is made of zirconium oxide ceramic, a very hard material that is resistant to corrosion and scratching. The case is formed using an isostatic pressure process that produces a single block ready for milling. The 44mm case requires over 60 operations to complete. The screw-down back is titanium with a sapphire window opening onto the P.2003 automatic movement.
The movement – designed and manufactured in-house by Officine Panerai – offers a 10 day power reserve, the status of which is displayed via a linear display on the trademark sandwich dial. This reference PAM00335 will be produced in a limited series of 500 pieces with a European MSRP of 12,900 euros. The launch is scheduled for September 10.
