This superb 45mm case and bezel are made in polished 5NPt red gold. And in addition to the blue dial with luminous Arabic numerals and hour markers, date at 3 o’clock, linear power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock, small seconds and 24h indicator at 9 o’clock, this timepiece boasts Panerai’s first skeletonised automatic movement entirely designed, produced and decorated in the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel — the automatic Manufacture P.2003/10 calibre with three spring barrels for a power reserve of ten days.
Travelers will appreciate the central arrow-shaped hand indicating a second time zone and two time-setting devices: the first stops the balance wheel and returns the seconds hand to zero when the winding crown is pulled out, while the second enables the hand indicating local time to be moved forward or back in one hour steps without moving the minute hand or interfering with the running of the watch, while the date adjusts automatically.
Through the clear case back, we admire the rotor with “Officine Panerai” finely cut out along the edge. Beneath it we discover the skeleton work of the bridges and barrels with polished chamfered edges. This timepiece, water-resistant to 5 bar, comes with a dark blue alligator strap with a red gold buckle. EUR35,000. Limited to 200 pieces.
The fourth timepiece in this series is the LUMINOR 1950 10 DAYS GMT AUTOMATIC ACCIAIO – 44mm (PAM 00689) in polished stainless steel combining the stunning blue dial with luminous Arabic numerals and hour markers with the technology of the automatic caliber P.2003 with three spring barrels for a power reserve of at least ten days, and functions of hours, date, GMT with am/pm indication, power reserve indicator, seconds reset, and the device for quickly adjusting the hour hand. With a simple, clean design, enhanced by its structure of two superimposed discs containing ecru Super-LumiNova®, we easily read the ten-day power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock, the date window at 3 o’clock and the 24 hour indicator and small seconds at 9 o’clock. The Manufacture movement with its bi-directional oscillating weight can be admired through the transparent sapphire crystal on the back. Water-resistant to 10 bar. This timepiece is supplied with a blue alligator strap. EUR13,000. Limited to 300 pieces.
