Normal chronographs are operated by the use of two buttons – the first to start and stop the watch, the second to reset it. A monopusher chronograph features one single button to start, stop and reset the chronographic functions. This system allows the chrono to be reset more rapidly as it is not necessary to change the button to be pushed.
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 hand-wound P.2004/10 calibre, entirely developed and created at the Officine Panerai Manufacture at Neuchâtel, has three barrels which give it the unusually long power reserve of eight days, a classic feature of Panerai watches since the 1940s; the running time remaining is displayed by the linear power reserve indicator on the dial. With two counters and a central seconds hand, the chronograph has a single button at eight o’clock which controls the start, stop and reset functions. It has a vertical clutch and column wheel, the latter being fully visible from the back of the movement, through the sapphire window set in the caseback. The sophisticated finish and other technical details of the movement can also be seen through the back of the watch, being exposed to view by the skeletonising of the bridges and the two barrels. The P.2004/10 calibre also has the second time zone function, with the a.m./p.m. indicator on the counter at nine o’clock, and the device that automatically resets the seconds hand to zero when the time is adjusted.Discover calibre
