The Panerai “Traits” series of mini movies have been inspiring examples of the pursuit of excellence, but none more than this tribute to the Italian chef Massimo Bottura.
Bottura’s restaurant in Modena, Italy – Osteria Francescana – was named the world’s best restaurant in 2016 and he continues to come up with remarkable ideas to change our way of thinking about food. My favourite was when, at the Rio Olympics, he led the way in setting up a community kitchen concept called Food for Soul, to fight food waste.
For this and other innovative ideas, Bottura has been recognised by Panerai. He appears in the movie wearing one of the most innovative Panerai timepieces, the Tuttonero Luminor 1950 3 days GMT automatic, in ceramic. The black on black colouring is extremely dramatic – even the moment is black. This incredibly tough finish is five times stronger than steel and certainly a timepiece that has the Paneristi excited!
