In Depth

In the past, time measurement was extremely important for sailors, because it provided one of the pieces of information used in calculating longitude, thus determining the ship’s position and course. The need for a reliable timepiece on board led to the development of ever more accurate marine chronometers which could operate perfectly in adverse environmental conditions. Officine Panerai’s new Wall Clock has been created in a period when this need no longer exists, but it is nonetheless a useful tool to have, with a distinctive dial recalling that of the wristwatches made by Panerai.

Materials

Steel

AISI 316L 1.4435 stainless steel is Officine Panerai’s material par excellence since it is highly resistant to corrosion and is hypoallergenic, making it ideal for contact with the skin.

The Panerai watches created for the Italian Navy were made of austenitic stainless steel, a reliable material that was also resistant to the extreme environmental conditions in which the commandos operated. AISI 316L, a specification of the American Iron and Steel Institute, is an austenitic stainless steel alloy with a chromium content of 16–18%, 11–14% nickel and 2–3% molybdenum.

Officine Panerai uses the low-carbon variant of this alloy: the lower carbon content of the steel improves its welding qualities where the metal’s thickness is 6mm or less. The excellent technical qualities of this material make it an essential element of every new Officine Panerai collection.
