Description

To call your watch a ‘Black Knight’ requires you to have a lot of faith in it. A name as bold as that holds a heavy weight of expectations.

Long before Batman highjacked the title, the name was used as a common stock figure in Arthurian literature. So, what kind of watch could Panerai make to live up to all those expectations?

The answer is the Panerai Luminor 1950 Chrono Monopulsante 8 DAYS GMT PAM 317 a key player in the history of fine watchmaking. It's an underwater watch like its predecessors, but with additional functions that make it both sporty and sophisticated.

The biggest and arguably most impressive feature is the 44 mm ceramic case. Five times harder than steel, holding this watch is an experience in itself. The case actually had to be created though a special ‘Isostatic pressure’ process, as no other traditional process would live up to the brand’s expectations.

Equally impressive is the movement Panerai decided to fit with this case. It comes with a monopusher chronograph, meaning that it is controlled by a single button which starts, stops, and resets the chronograph. It also has a GMT function with a separate AM/PM indicator. All these features can be enjoyed for over a week without a worry, as an eight day manual wind power reserve is sure not to let you down.

To display all this information Panerai sticks to the classics, and captures the essence of the brand through the beautiful black two-layer ‘sandwich’ dial.

And just like Batman, this watch also has another trick up its sleeve. If all that hasn’t already made you hungry for this watch, then the PVD coated movement with a display case-back surely will. In the production process allegedly 80% of all movements did not make it through Panerai’s quality assurance tests, but the fuss has certainly paid off with this watch and its truly unique flair.

Unfortunately we can’t all be superheroes, and so only five hundred of these were created, this watch is in unused condition and comes with our standard 12 month guarantee.

Size guide for wristbands

1 | Lug width

The lug width is the width of the strap at the end that is attached to the watch. This is the interior distance between the two lugs (horn-like protrusions) on the watch casing. The strap will fit your watch only if the lug width of the watch is the same width as the strap.

2 | Buckle width

The buckle width is the width of the strap at the buckle end. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the width of the original buckle must be identical to the strap width. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.

3 | Strap length

The strap length is the combined length of the short strap side 3A (without buckle) and the long strap side 3B. For metal straps, the length of the strap including the clasp is measured in the closed position.

4 | Strap thickness

Strap thickness is the height of the strap. Many leather straps thin out towards the buckle end, or “taper”. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the strap thickness must match the height of the original buckle. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.
