In Depth

WITH THE NEW RADIOMIR 8 DAYS CERAMICA – 45 MM, OFFICINE PANERAI RE-PROPOSES THE COMBINATION OF A HIGH-TECH MATERIAL, ceramic, with a Panerai movement entirely developed and produced by the Manufacture in Neuchâtel: the manual wound P.2002/3 calibre. The synthetic ceramic used by Officine Panerai for the case of the Radiomir 8 Days Ceramica - 45 mm is Zirconium Oxide (ZrO2), a material obtained through an isostatic pressing process of the powder material, which results in a particularly uniform and homogeneous appearance. The manual wound P.2002/3 Panerai calibre has an eight-day power reserve, three barrels and a linear residual power reserve indicator on the dial. In addition to the date at 3 o'clock, the calibre also has a device that allows the hour hand to be quickly adjusted without interfering with the minute mechanism. Both the cushion-shaped case and the classic sandwich dial are black. All the elements that characterise the dial - the large numerals and the hour markers, the hands and the small seconds dial at 9 o'clock, the date and the linear power reserve indicator - are coated with a layer of special ecru Super-LumiNova®.

Maintenance

Panerai watches are produced to very high standards of quality. It is worth remembering that the mechanical parts run 24 hours a day when used, so the watch must undergo regular maintenance to ensure long life and good operation.

WATER-RESISTANCE 

Have watch checked periodically for water-resistance by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre and renovate it every two years with regular servicing, or whenever the watch has to be opened. The restoration of water-resistance necessarily involves replacing the seals in order to ensure the maximum water resistance and protection. Where the watch is used in underwater sports activities, it is recommended that it should be checked every year before the underwater activities begin.  

THE MOVEMENT 

Have the movement of watch checked periodically by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre in order to preserve its perfect operation. If the watch has a tendency to gain or lose time to a significant degree, the movement may need to be overhauled. The movements are designed to withstand temperature variations between -10°C and +60°C (14°F and 140°F). Outside this range of temperatures, operational variations exceeding those set out in the specifications of the movement may be noticed. In addition, there is a risk that the lubricants contained in the movement may deteriorate, resulting in damage to some of its parts.  

CLEANING THE EXTERIOR

To keep the exterior in perfect condition, we recommend washing Panerai watch with soap and warm water, using a soft brush. After this operation, and also after immersion in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the watch with fresh water. All Panerai watches can be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth. 

THE STRAP

 Panerai straps must be washed in warm water and left to dry. It is important not to dry them on a hot surface or expose them to direct sunlight, because the rapid evaporation of the water could damage their shape and quality. After each immersion in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the strap with fresh water. It is recommended that the strap and the buckle should be replaced by an Authorized Distributor or a Panerai Service Centre, in order to avoid any problems caused by incorrect replacement. Only an Authorized Distributor or Panerai Service Centre can guarantee the use of genuine Panerai straps, properly designed to fit the dimensions of the case and manufactured according to the quality standards of the brand. All alligator leather used by Officine Panerai comes from farms in Louisiana, USA. Officine Panerai’s suppliers have committed to the highest standard of responsibility and have given their assurance that such farms in Louisiana contribute to the stable growth of wild alligators, thus protecting this endangered species. Panerai does not use leather coming from endangered species taken from the wild.
