Panerai just launched a new PAM that is ultra thin, in fact about 40% slimmer than the 1950s case of the past: Luminor Due
Typically, with a short case, you’re limited to what you can put inside. Auto guys will be delighted to know that the new slimline is not only available in manual wind (caliber P.1000), but they also found a way to jam an automatic caliber P.4000 into the new design. This is obviously the thinnest in-house automatic movement manufactured by Panerai.
The hand-wound models are 42mm standing 10.5mm tall on the wrist. The autos have a diameter of 45mm with a height of 10.7mm.
The new line is looking to be priced like this: Steel/auto PAM00674 $10,700; red gold/auto PAM675 $25, 600; steel/manual PAM676 $8,100; red gold/manual PAM677 $22,100.
