At the 2013 Geneva Watch Show, Panerai launched its first self-winding movement equipped with the latest timekeeping function. This movement is entirely located by Panerai. Manufactured by Neuchâtel’s watchmaking factories, its materials and workmanship standards have reached the highest levels of technology, quality and reliability. Today I will give you a brief review of watches with this movement. Official model: PAM00525.
The biggest feature of this watch is that it is equipped with a fully self-developed cal.9100 self-winding movement developed by Panerai, and has a highly complex flyback timing function. And there is a certain difference from the ordinary flyback chronograph watch, that is, it sets the chronograph minute and second hands at the center of the watch.
The dial structure adopts the design of Panerai in the late 1930s, which can ensure high reading performance even under extremely weak light. It consists of two overlapping sheets. The upper sheet is hollowed out at the position corresponding to the time-marked number, so the light of Super-LumiNova® can be seen.
In order to make the chronograph clear and easy to read, the chronograph minute and second hands are set at the center of the main dial. The two are distinguished by different colors: the second hand is blue, and the minute hand is gold. One grid. This setting complements the pure design style of the black dial. Stick-shaped hour markers and numbers appear on the dial. A date window is set at 3 o’clock and a small seconds dial is set at 9 o’clock.
The watch still uses its unique crown-shaped bridge design, which first appeared on the original Panerai model. It was also recorded in the Italian navy archives in the same year. It became the classic shape of the Luminor model and also became a Panerai brand. Iconic feature.
The flyback function of the watch is controlled by a button at the 8 o’clock position. It can instantly return the chronograph hand to the zero position and restart the operation at the same time. There is no need to press the stop button to stop the hand and then press it to zero. The button returns the pointer to the zero position.
This watch has a translucent design and a sapphire crystal back. From the way we can also see the basic parameters of the watch, the watch is made of 18K rose gold, the watch is waterproof to 50 meters. With a brown alligator strap, the strap can be easily changed using the Panerai replacement mechanism on the watch’s lugs.
This is the P.9100 self-winding movement that this watch is equipped with. This movement is a completely independently developed movement by Panerai. Its material and process standards meet the technical, quality and reliability aspects. The highest level. The chronograph of this new movement includes a vertical clutch and a column wheel. What sets it apart is that the chronograph minutes are placed in the center of the dial and it skips forward every 60 seconds. It is also equipped with a very practical flyback function. With the flyback function, the timed indicator that is already in operation can instantly return to the zero position and restart the operation, eliminating the tedious operation of stopping the indicator operation, then returning to zero, and then restarting the operation.
Summary: This watch is already designed with a large diameter, the diameter is 44 mm. Although Panerai watches have large diameters, I don’t know if they have noticed. In fact, these watches with large diameters don’t feel very big when worn on the wrist. This may be the subtlety of Panerai watch design. The current domestic price of this watch is 239,000 yuan.
