The annual Geneva International Watch Fair is about to begin. The reporting team in front of the Watch House has arrived in Geneva and will bring you the latest and fastest comprehensive watch fair report. Panerai launches the Luminor 1950 LEFT-HANDED 3 DAYS – 47mm 3-day power reserve left-handed watch. Its winding crown and crown guard are located at 9 o’clock on the left side of the case. Left-handed watches have played an important role in the history of Panerai. Italian navy commandos often need to wear several instruments on their wrists at the same time. In addition to the watch used to indicate the synchronized attack time and calculate the ship’s submersible time, they also need to wear a compass and depth gauge. For convenience, some team members will wear the watch on the right wrist, so Panerai has developed a watch with the crown on the left for them to wind easily. A few of the brand’s watches still retain this rare feature.
The case of the Luminor 1950 Left-Handed 3 Days left-handed watch is made of stainless steel, and in details, it has different recognition characteristics from the classic Luminor 1950 case: the outer periphery of the case is sharply angled, and the pillow shape is looming. This detail of the new case is directly taken from some Panerai’s pillow-shaped Radiomir watch introduced in 1936 and gradually transformed into a large-scale Luminor watch with bridge protection. The classic watch design of this period elaborated the important transformation of the brand at that time.
