The focus of Watches and Wonders this year for Panerai is the Radiomir 140 collection. They gave a sneak peak with the release of two new models featuring their new in-house P.1000 movement. Today we bring you two special editions the PAM 624 & PAM 625 Panerai Radiomir 1940 10 Days GMT Automatic Oro Rosso Special Editions.
This is the first time the Radiomir 1940 case has been paired with the in-house P.2003/10 calibre movement ,which is the first fully skeletonised movement from Panerai.
The Panerai Radiomir 1940 10 Days GMT Automatic Oro Rosso Special Editions PAM 624 & PAM 625 cases are made from 5NPT red gold and are 45 mm in diameter.
The classic sandwich dial, invented by Panerai to provide the maximum visibility and legibility of its indications even in very low lighting conditions: two superimposed discs contain the luminous material which shines through the holes made in the upper disc, which correspond to the dial markings.. The dials of both watches have a satiné soleil finish in different colours.
The PAM 625 has a black satiné soleil finished dial.
Function wise both watches are the same, featuring a 2nd timezone with AM/PM indicator, date located at the 3 o ‘clock position and a power reserve indicator located at the 6 o’clock position.
On the reverse side, viewable through the sapphire caseback is the P.2003/10 skeletonised self winding movement. Three spring barrels give the watch a power reserve of 10 days (240 Hours). The movement also features a stop seconds which stops and resets the seconds hand when the winding crown is pulled out. The local time hand can 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.
