THE P.2005/S PANERAI MOVEMENT
In the innovative Panerai Tourbillon (Patented) the cage which contains the balance wheel and escapement rotates on an axis perpendicular to that of the balance, not parallel with it, and a complete rotation takes not the traditional sixty seconds but thirty. This special construction means that the Tourbillon compensates much more effectively for the errors due to the force of gravity, resulting in greater accuracy in measuring time.
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.
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.
