OFFICINE PANERAI has been producing in-house manufacturer calibres in Switzerland since 2005. With the calibre P.2005/S incorporated into the PAM 559, the watchmakers from Neuchâtel have managed to create a symbiosis of functionality and aesthetics. So the PANERAI “Lo Scienziato“ – Radiomir 1940 Tourbillon GMT Oro Rosso not only represents one of the most beautiful movements, but also one of PANERAI’S most complex.
The skeletonised calibre P.2005/S makes it possible to see the individual components in the movement of the PANERAI Tourbillon at a glance through the dial for the first time. This means OFFICINE PANERAI is going down a new route in the world of movements with complications. As well as displaying hours, minutes and small seconds at the 9.00 o’clock position, the reference PAM 559 displays a second time zone [GMT] and features 24-hour display at the 3 o’clock position, with a power reserve display on the back. The tourbillon turns around its own axis [360°] once every 60 seconds.
With a power reserve of 144 hours, the PAM 559 delivers a full 6 days of energy, to drive all complications precisely. What makes the PANERAI “Lo Scienziato“ – Radiomir 1940 Tourbillon GMT Oro Rosso special is the open, skeletonised design of the manufacturer calibre P.2005/S. The 18K case, milled from a single block, is 48mm in diameter, and is guaranteed watertight to 50 meters.
PANERAI is the brand leader in historic diver’s watches. This means the Swiss manufacturer enjoys worldwide renown amongst watch collectors. With the PAM 559, OFFICINE PANERAI have shown once more the high quality standards the engineers and watchmakers can set when making the new “Lo Scienziato“ – Radiomir 1940 Tourbillon GMT Oro Rosso.
To match the hands, indices and the Luminova® Arabic numerals 3,6,9 in the colour ecru, OFFICINE PANERAI supply the PAM 559 with a black alligator-leather strap with ecru coloured stitching. PANERAI also fit a matching adjustable folding clasp made of 18K pink gold. With a unique limited edition of just 30 watches worldwide, PANERAI presents a very exclusive watch in the PAM00559, with high potential to increase in value.
