Officine Panerai has recently announced the addition of a new model to the 2014 lineup. The PAM533 Luminor 10 Days GMT Automatic features the P.2003 movement, which is the first automatic movement that was entirely designed and created by Panerai’s manufacture in Neuchatel.
The P.2003 movement is an automatic calibre with a very long power reserve time of 10 Days which is displayed on the beautiful black dial with a linear indicator. The movement also allows the GMT function with a 24 hour indicator with AM/PM on the sub second dial as well as the date on the other side. The PAM533 also features a faux patina lume as compared to the standard green lume and comes equipped with one of the best OEM straps, the brown Assolutamente strap.
The Panerai PAM533 is going to be limited to only 700 units made worldwide and will have an MSRP of around $15,600 USD.
