8 DAYS. THE DNA OF PANERAI.
"The winding crown is one of the elements most exposed to strains, manipulation and, consequently, wear. The length of the power reserve and the consequent regularity with which a watch must be wound are therefore crucial elements for its proper functioning, particularly for a professional instrument designed for ultimate reliability and accuracy.
AISI 316L STAINLESS 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."
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.
