30 April, 2015A PANERAI CLOCK FOR EXPO GATE
On the occasion of expo 2015 in Milan, Officine Panerai is donating the world time clock to the info point at the Expo Gate.
With the iconic minimalist design which makes every timepiece of the Florentine brand immediately recognizable, the Panerai wall clock enables anyone entering the Info Point at the Expo Gate at Piazza Castello to read the time in Milan and five other world capitals, chosen for their international vocation and their connection with Universal Expositions: London, New York and Paris (seat of the BIE, the Bureau International des Expositions) and also Shanghai and Dubai (hosts respectively of the last and the next Universal Expositions).
Expo Gate was opened in May 2014 to provide information and services for visitors to the Exposition. It is open every day from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. but the large Panerai clock (2.6 metres wide and 1.8 metres high) will continue to be seen displaying the time when the Info Point is closed, providing exceptional visibility at night, making it legible even in darkness, and it is therefore visible at all times from outside the Info Point, thanks to the building’s ethereal structure of transparent glass and tubular steel.
