Three stars and a Luminor

Chef Massimo Bottura is the new protagonist of the Series Panerai Traits

Michelin stars are not easy to come by, and only the best, most exacting chefs get their restaurants rewarded with the elusive stars. Chef Massimo Bottura is one such chef, and his restaurant in Modena, Osteria Francescana, proudly wears its three stars.

Panerai Traits is the digital exploration of the Panerai world and those who embody the same spirit: LUCE (light), DESIGN, MARE (sea), and INNOVAZIONE (innovation). Chef Bottura is the embodiment of Innovazione, or Innovation. Chef Bottura’s motto is ‘Tradition in Evolution,’ and he passionately explains this motto in the Panerai Trait film. His culinary creations are inspired by and make references to history, art, and philosophy. The Panerai Trait film features the sights and sounds of Modena, home to the illustrious chef and his beloved restaurant, such as the Piazza Grande and the Albinelli market.

Aside form it’s three Michelin stars, Osteria Francescana was also awarded the title of best restaurant in the world in 2016 by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. A cult destination for gourmets from across the globe, Chef Bottura’s innovative manner results in creative and delicious delights for the most discerning palates. “Look at the past in a critical way, not nostalgically. To innovate, it is necessary to take the best of the past and carry it forward into the future,” says Chef Bottura.

So what does a chef who treasures the past but envisions the future wear on his wrist? A watch that reflects the same ideals, of course. The Tuttonero – Luminor 1950 3 Days GMT Automatic Ceramica (PAM00438). This watch is the ideal match for this visionary chef. Just like the chef, the watch combines and past and future effortlessly. The iconic Panerai design and finest watchmaking skills are coupled with the state-of-the-art materials and technical expertise.
