Panerai: Luminor 1950 Left-handed 3 Days – 47 mm

Panerai endlessly demonstrates the pioneering spirit of a brand that equipped the Italian Navy's first combat divers in the 1940s, evidenced by this Luminor 1950 in a left-handed version, meaning the crown and its protection are positioned at 9 o'clock. Left-handed watches such as this are part of Panerai's history, as certain marine commandos preferred to wear their watch on their right wrist and keep their left wrist free for a compass and depth gauge, hence this unusual configuration.
