Officine Panerai's Special Editions 2004 line showcases the very best in contemporary luxury watch design. With Incabloc anti-shock devices and Monometallic Glucydur balancers, these rugged but decadent timepieces achieve perfection in both form and function. There are several different styles of band materials to choose from within this collection, from classic rubber to trendy alligator leather. The Panerai Luminor Chrono White Gold is a good example of the watches with a black alligator strap, while the Panerai Luminor Arktos is a fine example of a rubber strap model.
Among the six styles of timepieces themselves, there is the important choice of manual or automatic movement. An example of a great timepiece with automatic movement is the Panerai Luminor Submersible Chrono 1000m. Another terrific addition to a timepiece is a compass, which - as its name suggests - the Panerai Black Seal Compass includes.
The cases of these luxurious timepieces measure from 40 mm to 60 mm, and the specific size desired by a man depends upon both his wrist size and his personal tastes. Whichever model it is you decide on, you can't go wrong with a luxury timepiece from the Officine Panerai Special Editions 2004 series.
