For Watch Lovers

Panerai has revealed its first watches featuring gold bracelets with the Panerai Luminor Due TuttoOro collection. Slim contours and a tailored, uncomplicated style allow it to transition from the most casual occasions to formal wear and compliment everyone. The 38mm case and bracelet are forged from Panerai GoldtechTM, incorporating high copper content and platinum. Panerai GoldtechTM is a material that is integral to the Panerai identity. Copper contributes to the deep, red tone of the metal, while the platinum content ensures the colour will remain radiant and true.

Ever since its introduction in 2020, the creative combination of Japanese culture and modern design has been a central feature of the Seiko Presage Sharp Edged Series. Today, two new creations join this series and pay homage to the enduring longevity of Kabuki, a Japanese form of theater that has its roots in the 17th century Edo period and is still popular today. Layered with Seiko's proprietary technology, these watches even push the limits of precision and performance while showcasing traditional Japanese aesthetics that add an inherently distinctive style.
