Panerai Radiomir 10-Days GMT – 3 New Special Editions
The most recent couple of weeks we’ve seen a great deal of new releases! We’ve shown you Peter Speake-Marin’s new Piccadilly HMS and Resilience , the new Romain Jerome DeLorean DNA , a bigger Girard-Perregaux 1966 and a new assortment for Hautlence called Avant-Garde , to name simply a few.
And there were the two new Panerai Radiomir Composite models. Presently Panerai again releases three new Radiomir Special Editions, all in valuable metal and with the lovely 10-days manual breeze GMT development with straight force reserve pointer. Allow me to present the Radiomir 10-Days GMT – PAM 00495, PAM 00496 and PAM 00497.
Like said, these three Radiomir models are Special Editions, which means they are restricted underway. From left to not too far off are the PAM 00495 (platinum, restricted to 100 pieces), PAM 00496 (white gold, 250 pieces) and PAM 00497 (red gold, 250 pieces).
It looks like Panerai only places the P.2003 in-house development in restricted release Radiomir models with a valuable metal case. In 2007 they previously released three comparative Radiomir models, likewise in platinum, white gold and red gold, including the programmed type P.2003. The two other watches with this development are the Luminor 1950 10-Days GMT PAM 00270 and the ceramic PAM 00335; both are accessible in the contemporary collection.
One of the beautiful subtleties that these three models share, are the applied hour markers for the entire hours aside from 12 and 6 o’clock. The applied numerals are made in a metal that matches with the case, besides on the platinum variant. Likewise noticeable is a piece of the am/pm marker and the force reserve pointer with linear scale.
The photograph above additionally show the average development of the Panerai sandwich dial Besides the Arabic number 8 is a circular opening in the dial. Through that opening a second, lower, dial with applied glowing (SuperLuminova) material is visible.
The two models in white metal (platinum and white gold) include a dark dial, while the red gold variant has a flawlessly coordinating earthy colored dial. By and by I’m particularly impressed by the combination of the platinum case, dark dial and beige SuperLuminova, albeit the word “Platinum” on the dial is something that isn’t essential as I would like to think. Then again, the red gold applied numerals and coordinating red gold hands are simply stunning.
The three focal hands demonstrate the hours, minutes and a second time region. The seconds hand is at the 9 o’clock position, together with a little sharp hand that makes one full revolution once at regular intervals and in this way capacities as an am/pm marker. This am/pm marker is connected to the second time zone.
The remaining force reserve can be perused from the direct scale over the 6 o’clock position.
The P.2003 type is 13¾ lignes in breadth and it comprises of 296 components, with 25 gems. It has all the specialized qualities which make up the DNA of the P.2000 type series (variable dormancy balance, free-sprung balance spring, 28,800 vibrations each hour, three spring barrels, GMT work with 24-hour sign, fast setting to neighborhood time, date, balance stop-seconds component, seconds reset) yet it varies in having programmed winding and a force reserve of ten days, worked by a wavering weight mounted on metal rollers, which winds the spring barrels as it turns in both directions.
The three adaptations of the Radiomir 10 Days GMT are water-impervious to around 5 environments (50 meters) and they are provided with a gator tie, the shade of which, similar to that of the dial, differs as indicated by the metal of the case.
