RADIOMIR 1940, GREATNESS BEYOND TIME.

"The Radiomir 1940 is an evolution and also a substantial development of the first Radiomir series. In response to the very strict requirements expressed by the Royal Italian Navy, the watch was strengthened to become even more resistant under extreme conditions. The first change was the increase of the thickness of the case so that the lugs could be formed directly from the same steel block of the case. The wire loop strap attachments were replaced by an extremely solid monobloc construction. "

HIGH-TECH CERAMIC

"The ceramic used in Radiomir 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."

P.3000 calibre

P.3000 calibre

The P.3000 calibre, created entirely at the Panerai Manufacture, presents the main characteristics of the Panerai movements in terms of structure and robustness, accuracy and power reserve. The diameter of the calibre is 16½ lignes, a substantial size which traces its origins from that of the movements which were fitted to the historic Panerai models. The calibre is immediately recognisable by its construction, which is similar to that of a three-quarter plate movement: a large bridge, next to another smaller one, covers the majority of the mechanical parts, and is fixed to the bottom plate by a series of screws of substantial thickness, thus forming a particularly rigid structure. The movement has 21 jewels and it uses two spring barrels connected in series. Such an arrangement enables long, thin springs to be used, which ensure the delivery of a more even force over a longer period of time, with a power reserve of 3 days.

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.
