THE POWER OF TIME.
"To achieve an extended power reserve Panerai introduced an innovative power train based on three barrels in series to provide excellent time-measuring performance throughout the whole period of the power reserve. By means of this system, the force of the spring remains almost constant for the whole duration of the winding, so as to optimise the movement’s accuracy and to reduce the wear of the components to a minimum. "
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."
The P.2003 was the first automatic movement entirely designed and created by the Officine Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel. It is an automatic calibre of advanced technical content with an exceptionally long power reserve of 10 days, displayed on the dial by a linear indicator. Made up of 296 components and with 25 jewels, the P.2003 calibre is 13¾ lignes in diameter with a thickness of 8 mm. It has all the technical characteristics which form the DNA of the P.2000 series (free-sprung balance wheel with inertia regulation; 28,800 alternations per hour; three spring barrels; GMT function with 24-hour indication; rapid adjustment of local time; date; balance wheel stop; seconds reset device) but it is distinguished by having automatic winding with a power reserve of 10 days, operated by an oscillating weight mounted on a ball bearing, which winds the springs of the barrels as it rotates in both directions. The P.2003 calibre also has the seconds reset device which resets the seconds hand to zero, enabling the watch to be synchronised perfectly with a reference time signal. The operation of the system designed by Officine Panerai is unique: when the winding crown is pulled out to the second position, a thin blade moves into contact with the balance wheel, stopping it. At the same time, a small hammer lever moves downwards and acts on a heart-shaped cam, which instantly moves the seconds hand to the zero position. As soon as the winding crown is returned to the normal position, the balance wheel is freed, the hammer lever is raised, thus releasing the cam, and the seconds hand resumes its normal course.Discover calibre
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.
