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. "
The gold used by Panerai is a special alloy, different from standard gold. Panerai goldtech 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 gold alloy, as it helps to prevent the metal from oxidising.
The P.2002 hand-wound calibre is the progenitor of the P.2000 series and it takes its name from the year in which the project was launched to supply Panerai watches with movements entirely designed and developed at the Manufacture in Neuchâtel. The P.2002 calibre has the characteristics peculiar to all the calibres of the P.2000 series: great structural strength; three spring barrels; GMT function with 24-hour indicator; seconds reset device; rapid adjustment of local time; free-sprung balance; balance wheel oscillating at 28,800 alternations per hour (a frequency which is unusual in a movement with a large power reserve). The three spring barrels in series, the design of which is an Officine Panerai patent, ensures the delivery of an even, optimal force which remains stable for 8 days, thus delivering a force which is constant for all the days of the power reserve. The P.2002 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.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.
