Pocket Watch Tourbillon GMT Ceramica - 59mm
POCKET WATCHES. PERFECT HARMONY OF DESIGN AND CRAFTSMANSHIP.
"In the first decades of the twentieth century the Panerai Boutique was a point of referencefor those who were looking for a pocket watch, a fact witnessed by the Italian inscription “Pocket watches of the main Swiss brands” engraved on the glass window of the Boutique in Piazza San Giovanni in Florence. It was during the First World War that wristwatches began to spread gradually, transforming the pocket watch from a daily accessory to a rarity treasured by connoisseurs and collectors."
"The ceramic used in Pocket Watch cases is a high-tech zirconium oxide powder (ZrO2) containing 3% binder and colouring pigments. This high-tech ceramic has many advantages, such as extreme hardness and long-term resistance against wear and corrosion."
The P.2005/S skeleton hand-wound mechanical movement with a diameter of 16¼ lignes and 31 jewels, is characterised by the exclusive Panerai tourbillon that rotates perpendicularly to the axis of the balance, completing two rotations a minute instead of one, as in traditional tourbillons. This rate of rotation ensures greater accuracy and better compensation of the effects of gravity on the movement (this tourbillon is an Officine Panerai registered patent). Consisting of 277 components, the movement is the result of the exceptional work of Officine Panerai’s master watchmakers and, thanks to its three spring barrels, guarantees the Radiomir Tourbillon GMT Ceramica – 48mm a power reserve of six days, indicated by a hand that can be seen through the case back. To enhance the beauty of the Panerai skeleton movement, the watch has no dial: the numerals and indexes are engraved on the flange.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.
