In Depth

The thermometer is an instrument for measuring temperature. The first example to use the temperature parameters which are standard today was devised by Anders Celsius, the Swedish astronomer who in 1742 subdivided the scale of a mercury thermometer into one hundred parts from the freezing point of water to its boiling point. The Panerai thermometer operates by means of two metal strips with different coefficients of expansion bonded together: variations of temperature cause this bimetallic strip to bend. The bimetallic strip is formed into a spiral and a hand is fixed to one end of it, so that it rotates to indicate the temperature as it changes.
