At the age of four, Panerai is proud to present a new limited edition watch, producing only 100 pieces worldwide. This year’s Panerai Luminor Sealand is the fifth in a limited edition version of the zodiac. This series appeared in the Year of the Ox in 2009, and was successively launched in the Year of the Tiger, Rabbit and Dragon.
The limited edition of 100 pieces only pays tribute to Chinese culture and was exclusively sold in Panerai stores in early January 2013.
As always, this watch is exclusively available at Panerai stores. The zodiac has always been an important tradition and belief in Chinese culture, and the brand continues to convey its respect and respect for Chinese culture with new watches.
The spirit snake ranks sixth among the zodiac signs. The people of the snake are intelligent, mysterious, charismatic, wealthy and prosperous, and they are committed to their ambitions, so they are likely to succeed. Because the snake is recognized in the zodiac as similar to the dragon of the luckiest zodiac, it is traditionally believed that the year of the snake can bring prosperity and prosperity. Next year is the first water snake year in 60 years, and I believe it will be a particularly strong year.
The Year of the Snake watch design is inspired by the traditional Chinese paper-cut art. The spirit snake pattern was engraved on the cover by hundreds of hours by top craftsmen. The procedures are complicated and meticulous, and it vividly outlines the movement of the spirit snake and looks at the silhouette in the nest of the grass. The image is friendly and gentle. The watch is engraved with a ‘snake’ circular coat of arms.
The gray dial is provided with a flip-out cover, which, in addition to protecting the dial, has a second purpose: After opening, it is an endoscope, which becomes a signaling tool using the principle of light reflection. The dial features a small seconds counter at nine o’clock and a date display at three o’clock.
The Luminor Sealand watch perfectly reflects Panerai’s sincere appreciation for different cultures and long traditions. It also shows the brand’s unremitting pursuit of exquisite craftsmanship and outstanding technology.
