Officine Panerai Replica Watches presents the Radiomir 1940 10 Days GMT Automatic in two new exclusive Special Editions. The Radiomir 1940 design is for the first time combined with the P.2003/10 manufacture movement, the automatic calibre with date, GMT function and a power reserve of a full ten days, which is presented for the first time in a skeletonised version.
The 45 mm Radiomir 1940 case is made of 5NPT red gold and is water-resistant to 50m. The dial – available in brown or black – has an elegant satiné soleil finish and the famous sandwich structure invented by Panerai Replica Watches to provide the maximum visibility and legibility of its indications even in very low lighting conditions.
Designed, made and decorated in the Panerai Manufacture at Neuchâtel, the P.2003/10 movement is the first skeletonised automatic movement from Officine Panerai. Measuring 31 mm, it has three spring barrels, 25 jewels and a balance which makes 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz). Its functions are hours, minutes, small seconds, date and linear indication of the remaining power reserve at 6 o’clock, as well as a second time zone displayed by an arrow hand, with the relative AM/PM indication on the counter at 9 o’clock.
The mechanism can stop the balance and zeroes the seconds hand as soon as the winding crown is pulled out; it also enables the local time hand to be adjusted forward and backward in jumps of one hour at a time, without stopping the minute hand or interfering with the running of the watch, but automatically adjusting the date.
The artistic aspect consists of the delicately worked skeletonising, which reveals the complexity and sophistication of the movement. The rotor of the oscillating weight is grooved and embellished with the engraving inscription “Officine Panerai” on the outer edge. Beneath the rotor, which rotates in both directions, the skeletonised bridges and barrels can be seen, which reveal the technical structure of the various components and their chamfered and polished edges.
