Two New Panerai Watches Feature Linear Equation-of-Time Function


Panerai PAM00601 – dial CUPanerai added a brand new complication to the selection at SIHH 2015, also it accomplished it in an exceedingly Panerai way: the brand’s first Equation of your time function debuts both in a brand new Radiomir 1940 and Luminor 1950 watch, symbolized around the dial with a linear scale. Scroll lower for more info around the new watches, each of which boast an eight-day energy reserve.

The equation of your time, a classy astronomical complication that measures the main difference between mean some time and photo voltaic time (and described in greater detail here), may be the signature purpose of Panerai’s new P.2002/E quality, a handbook-winding movement according to Quality P.2002, the brand’s first in-house movement that first showed in 2005. The movement, having a diameter of 13 3/4 lignes, stores a energy reserve of eight days in the three spring barrels.

Quality P.2002/E forces both new Panerai watches, the Panerai Radiomir 1940 Equation of your time 8 Days Acciaio (PAM00516), having a 48-mm situation, and also the Panerai Luminor 1950 Equation of your time 8 Days Acciaio (PAM 00601), having a 47-mm situation. Both watches have black dials in Panerai’s well-known “sandwich”-style construction. The linear equation-of-time indicator is situated over the 6 o’clock position (the place by which you’d discover the linear energy-reserve visible on another Panerai watches with eight-day actions) the little seconds subdial reaches 9 o’clock, and also the month (on the subdial) and date (inside a window) take presctiption display at 3 o’clock.

Both cases are constructed with polished 316L stainless and water-resistant against roughly 100 meters. The situation from the Luminor 1950 (that is an evolution from the original, historic Radiomir situation) features another Panerai hallmark, the distinctive bridge device with clamping lever to safeguard the winding crown. The casebacks have azure viewing home windows that provide a look at Quality P.2002/E, and particularly the energy-reserve display, that has been moved here because of its traditional place being occupied through the equation-of-time indication around the dial.

The Panerai Radiomir 1940 Equation of your time 8 Days Acciaio – 48 mm is really a special edition of just 200 pieces, and also the Panerai Luminor 1950 Equation of your time 8 Days – 47 mm is much more limited, to simply 100 pieces. Both watches are fitted by having an alligator strap (black for that Radiomir, brown for that Luminor) the Luminor 1950 can also be provided having a screwdriver along with a tool for altering straps.
