Panerai Luminor 1950 Rattrapante 8 Days Titanio 47mm
Another pre-SIHH discharge today and one that has for quite some time been normal. Only two months prior, in September, Panerai delivered the Panerai Luminor 1950 Rattrapante 8 Days Special Edition PAM00427, which is basically a similar watch, albeit the new doesn’t have the engraved case back and is no Special Edition.
I’m satisfied that Panerai chose to make a comparable watch accessible to more Panerai gatherers (the PAM00427 SE was restricted to 500 pieces), by presenting a comparable model in the Specialties Collection. Say greetings to the new Panerai Luminor 1950 Rattrapante 8 Days Titanio 47mm PAM00530.
From the dial side I can’t perceive any contrast between the Special Edition PAM00427 and the new PAM00530 and to be straightforward, I’m satisfied to see that. The dial shows includes the very hour markers, which were, up until the PAM00427, selective for the Radiomir models. The principle contrast is obviously the situation back, in light of the fact that the PAM00427’s case back is engraved with the logo of the Panerai Transat Classique 2012.
The Luminor 1950 Rattrapante 8 Days Titanio is a part seconds chronograph with one of Panerai’s in-house developments, type P.2006. Caliber P.2006 is a hand-wound development that has a long force save of eight days, which is accomplished by methods for an extraordinary licensed arrangement of three spring barrels. The excess force hold can be perused on the dial from a direct marker over the number six.
The split-seconds chronograph is actuated by a vertical grasp and twin section wheels, one for each second hand. The split-seconds work, otherwise called rattrapante, works two hands that are superimposed and mostly free. The principal, constrained by the catch at 8 o’clock, is the chronograph hand (with emblazoned “C”); the second, constrained by the catch at 10 o’clock, is utilized for estimating fractional occasions or a second event synchronous with the first (with embellished “R” for Rattrapante).
The Panerai Luminor 1950 Rattrapante 8-Days Titanio will be accessible for € 19.900 (counting 21% VAT) and conveyance will begin in April 2013.
