PANERAI RED GOLD 5Npt

The red gold used by Officine Panerai is a special alloy, different from standard red gold, called 5Npt. Panerai 5Npt 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 red gold alloy, as it helps to prevent the metal from oxidising.

P.2002/10 calibre

P.2002/10 calibre

The P.2002/10 calibre is a particularly complex version of the first in-house movement made in the Officine Panerai Manufacture at Neuchâtel. The bridges and barrels are finely skeletonised, so the details that appeal so much to lovers of haute horlogerie can be seen, such as the wheelwork in the same colour as the case, the progressive unwinding of the spring as the watch is running and its rewinding when it is being wound. The brushed bridges with gold-coloured engraving are finished with anglage (chamfering) while the plate is decorated with perlage (circular graining). As well as offering the functions of hours, minutes, seconds, date, GMT and seconds reset, the P.2002 movement has a power reserve of at least eight days, thanks to the system patented byOfficine Panerai using three spring barrels arranged in series. The long power reserve of eight days has been part of the history of the brand since the 1940s, when it was important that the Panerai watches on the wrists of the commandos of the Italian navy should operate for long periods without requiring frequent use of the winding crown, one of the elements most vulnerable to external stresses.

MAINTENANCE

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.
