Success made by Panerai – caliber ETA/Unitas 6497
The pocket watch development Unitas 6497 is a dependable workhorse. It’s being utilized in various watches… not just pocket watches! It really got the most distinction since it was utilized by Panerai.
Since Panerai acquired name and popularity among watch authorities, so did the development Panerai utilized in the vast majority of their watches of that time, Unitas type 6497. The most recent couple of years there are various brands utilizing this dependable development. I had the thought physically twisted development where generally utilized by top of the line brands in elite watches. Most mid reach brands offering watches of two or three hundred euro up to an around 1,500 – 2,000 euro utilized programmed development for their mechanical watches. Today it’s difficult to overlook the presence of physically twisted watches in this cost range.
The above type OP XI has been intensely changed by Panerai. With new extensions and a swan neck controller for fine change this variation of the Unitas 6497 has a place with the absolute best accessible. Other brands additionally made a few alterations on the base development, yet today there are likewise numerous watches offered with the fundamental form of the Unitas 6497. Or then again will we say ETA 6497, in light of the fact that ETA presently creates these movements.
MOMO Design is one of the brands utilizing this development. I think the made a very decent watch with this Pilot Titanium Mechanic. Dark, stylishly large… that’s right, it’s got the fixings that appear to ‘do it’.
Another one is made by Cimier , the Cimier Petite Seconde Venom (above). Of all Cimier watches I have at any point seen, this is by a wide margin the most attractive. The Cimier Petite Seconde Venom is made in collaboration with amazing Swiss goalkeeper Jörg Stiel , in any event he marked the gem for the situation back.
This magnificence is restricted to just 200 pieces and expenses around 1,500 euro. The extensions of the development where PVD covered to give it a dark completion, which truly looks decent I think.
Like the above there are many, a lot more watches utilizing the ETA/Unitas 6497. Not just in vogue and beautiful watches like both above, yet in addition pilot style watches and sports watches utilize the dependable development. Anyway for what reason do out of nowhere such countless brands utilize this development that’s been around for decades?
I truly accept that on the off chance that it wasn’t for Panerai we would not have seen such countless watches with this huge physically twisted development. What’s more, looking at this Panerai, I quite lament that I sold my old Panerai PAM 1. Presently I see this new Panerai PAM111 I truly need one. So it’s time to begin saving again… it’s such a beauty.
