RADIOMIR 8 DAYS GMT ORO ROSSO – 45MM

Officine Panerai presents the Radiomir 8 Days GMT Oro Rosso, an exclusive Special Edition of great elegance which pays tribute to the long history of brand by reinterpreting the classic Radiomir with details that are characteristic of sophisticated high quality watchmaking. The new Radiomir 8 Days GMT Oro Rosso has a cushion case of polished red gold which encloses a dial of historic inspiration, derived directly from a rare model of the late 1930s. The design of the dial is minimalist with simple linear and dot hour markers. The various functions can be read directly: the date at 3 o’clock; the linear indication of the power reserve; and the small seconds counter with a.m./p.m. indicator for the second time zone. The dial is deep blue with a satiné soleil finish, elegantly set off by the warm tone of the 5Npt red gold, an alloy that has a higher percentage of copper than yellow or pink gold and a proportion of platinum. The same alloy, which provides greater toughness and strength, is used for the adjustable clasp closing the blue alligator strap, which is fixed to the case by the system of removable strap attachments patented by Officine Panerai. The open back reveals the sophisticated technical and aesthetic details of the hand-wound P.2002/10 calibre: this is a particularly complex version of the first in-house movement made in the Officine Panerai Manufacture at Neuchâtel.

RED GOLD

Red gold is an alloy composed of gold, copper and other metals, and due to its technical properties and elegant appearance, it is an ideal material for use in fine watchmaking. The red gold used by Officine Panerai is a special alloy, different from standard red gold, called 5Npt.
Panerai 5Npt has a percentage of copper giving the material an intense red hue that is particularly elegant and sophisticated. Platinum is another fundamental element of the Panerai red gold alloy, as it helps to prevent the metal from oxidising. 5Npt has another important property: it has a high mechanical resistance than standard pink and yellow gold. It is the perfect material for Panerai high-end watches.

P.2002/10

The P.2002/10 calibre is a particularly complex version of the first in-house movement made in the Officine Panerai Manufacture at Neuchâtel. The bridges and barrels are finely skeletonised, so the details that appeal so much to lovers of haute horlogerie can be seen, such as the wheelwork in the same colour as the case, the progressive unwinding of the spring as the watch is running and its rewinding when it is being wound. The brushed bridges with gold-coloured engraving are finished with anglage (chamfering) while the plate is decorated with perlage (circular graining). As well as offering the functions of hours, minutes, seconds, date, GMT and seconds reset, the P.2002 movement has a power reserve of at least eight days, thanks to the system patented byOfficine Panerai using three spring barrels arranged in series. The long power reserve of eight days has been part of the history of the brand since the 1940s, when it was important that the Panerai watches on the wrists of the commandos of the Italian navy should operate for long periods without requiring frequent use of the winding crown, one of the elements most vulnerable to external stresses.

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 your watch checked periodically for water-resistance by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre and restore it every two years with regular servicing, or whenever the watch has to be opened. Restoring the watch’s water-resistance necessarily involves replacing the seals so as to ensure the maximum water-resistance and security. Where the watch is used in underwater sports activities, it is recommended that it should be checked every year before the season of underwater activities begins.

THE MOVEMENT
Have the movement of your watch checked periodically by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre so as to maintain its perfect operation. If the watch tends to gain or lose time significantly, 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 your Panerai watch with soap and warm water, using a soft brush. After this operation, and also after bathing in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the watch with clean 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 to expose them to direct sunlight, because the rapid evaporation of the water could damage their shape and quality. After each bathe in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the strap with clean water. The leather strap is made from leather which has not been chemically treated, which gives it a very natural, soft feel. As a result of its characteristics, the colour and form of the leather tend to change with the passage of time while maintaining all of its beauty. 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 skins coming from fragile or endangered species taken from the wild.
