Panerai Luminor Slytech Daylight 5218-207/A Luxury Watch Review

The Luminor is Panerai’s franchise model. Epitomized by this Luminor Slytech Daylight 5218-207/A, the Luminor the watch that launched Panerai as a consumer brand. It was the shape that captivated Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, and a constellation of their fellow stars. While filming the action thriller "Daylight" in Rome in 1995, Stallone discovered then-obscure Panerai at a local jeweler and placed a large custom order for distribution to friends and associates. The famed "Slytech" and "Daylight" dial signatures are the calling cards of a true blue-chip collectible Panerai from the original Stallone orders. Any Luminor 5218 is a special machine and coveted keepsake, but the an authenticated "Slytech" pedigree puts this one over the top. One of only 200 produced with this combination of dial color and graphics, this Panerai Luminor is a true rarity and investment-grade luxury watch for dyed-in-the-wool Paneristi. “Luminor” was a synonym for “Panerai” on the buzzing message boards of the embryonic social Internet. Its shape has inspired contemporary pop art and tattoos alike. The Luminor’s calling card was its “Device Protecting the Crown,” a locking lever that obviated the need for a screw-down crown of the type used on the original Rolex Oyster-cased Panerai dive watches. The DPC makes “accidental drowning” due to unscrewed crowns almost impossible, provides a barrier to glancing blows, and it limits the wear on crown seals. In civilian life, the DPC is a hallmark of modern Panerai, and many of the Paneristi – the devotees of the brand – consider the DPC to be an essential component of a Panerai watch. Collectible Panerai specialist thewatchbox.com is proud to offer this rare and highly-sought Panerai Luminor Slytech Daylight 5218-207/A with original Panerai wooden box, jeweler's strap tool, and certificate of factory service & authenticity from Officine Panerai.
