Panerai PAM00088 44mm Luminor GMT PAM 00088 Automatic for men

Similar to the other Luminor, this GMT PAM 88 dual time watch comes in a large size, boasting a solid 44 mm round case with fixed bezel that is made from a single block of the premium grade AISI 316L stainless steel for an optimum durability. The front face of this brushed and polished case is covered by the world class 3.5 mm thick sapphire crystal that is enhanced with anti-reflective coating and features magnifying lens over the date at 3 o’clock, while its rear is solid. At the right hand side, that famous lever crown protection device which shields the winding crown and making it water-proof stays intact.

The one that is housed within this PAM 88’s case is a highly reliable movement which is developed based on the Valjoux 7750-P1 movement by the watchmaker in accordance with the dictates of Swiss watchmaking tradition. It is the Panerai OP VIII calibre, a rugged and precise automatic mechanical self-winding movement that features 21 jewels, Glucydur balance, and Incabloc anti-shock device, capable of producing 28,800 semi-oscillations per hour, and provides around 42 hours of power reserve when fully wound. Speaking of the performance, this caliber is tested and certified by C.O.S.C. so that you can be confident with it.

The very modern GMT function on Officine Panerai's Luminor lets the wearer simultaneously read the local time and that of another country, displayed on the dial with a separate hand.


This Panerai PAM00088 Luminor GMT watch’s functions are nicely showcased through the watch’s Black dial that features silver-tone skeleton hands, along with the sizable sticks and Arabic numeral hour markers which all feature SuperLuminova fills so that they are easy to read in every light conditions. The 24-hour markers to be used with the luminous GMT hand are placed around the outer rim. The seconds sub-dial has a concentric silver pattern and luminescent filled hand.

As a timepiece with a diver watch lineage, it is not a surprise that this beauty boasts a capacity of 300 m water resistance. Yet, it may be a bit of hassle if you’d like to swimming or diving with it as the watch comes standard with a genuine leather bracelet instead of rubber or stainless steel. Speaking of the bracelet, it is Brown with crocs pattern and contrast stitching details, and it comes equipped with a tang buckle clasp. Looks good and feels great, you’ll sure to appreciate how nice the way it wrap your hand with such comfort.

For a Panerai collector, this 44 mm Panerai PAM00088 would be a nice addition to the collection as the watch has a look distinctively different from other Luminor’s. The timepiece itself is visually attractive, and it does a high quality one that is both practical and reliable for years to come. As for pricing, this Swiss made GMT automatic timekeeper’s suggested retail price is $8,000.00.
