The 26th Geneva International Haute Horlogerie Salon has been running for three days. This is the most watch exhibition in history. The number of participating brands has changed from 16 to 24, and there are countless new products. Officine Panerai launched more than ten brand new watches in this exhibition, planting a lot of grass for the watch lovers and fans. The editors below will show you one of the Radiomir 1940 series. The watch, model number: PAM00655, is the first new work in the Panerai Radiomir 1940 series with a white dial design.
This watch is delicate and elegant, lightweight, simple lines, clear dial easy to read and easy to set, it is a sports watch for any occasion.
PAM00655 inherits the unique characteristics of Panerai watches from the 1940s, with oversized black digital hour markers and a small dial set at nine o’clock. The pillow-shaped case is made of AISI 316L stainless steel, with a diameter of 42 mm and a thickness of only 10.93 mm. It is in line with Panerai’s classic watch design regardless of shape and proportion.
The crown is also made of bright polished stainless steel, engraved with the Panerai ‘OP’ logo and connected to the internal device. Pulling out the crown can suspend the balance wheel operation, allowing the time adjustment of the watch to be fully synchronized with the timekeeping device .
Through the transparent sapphire crystal on the back of the watch, you can admire the exquisite craftsmanship of the P.4000 movement. The P.4000 self-winding movement is completely developed by Panerai’s watch factory in Neuchâtel. It is covered by a large frosted splint, which makes the movement more robust and stable. The balance splint supports a balance wheel that vibrates 28,800 times per hour. The most fascinating feature of the new watch is the eccentric rotor, which makes the movement only 3.95 mm thick. The dual-windable balance wheel is made of tungsten alloy and is connected to two barrels in series to ensure a power reserve of up to three days, which meets the basic power reserve time standard of Panerai’s homemade movement.
