You are looking at one of the most complicated Officine Panerai watches ever released and the inspection of the dial will prove it, as this model breaks the simplicity of Panerai dials, by adding some details that express its complicated functions. But don`t worry, as usual, the design team made an outstanding job, making a goal from the desire to not overcrowd the dial and to keep it as simple as possible.
The 44mm brushed titanium case has the sandwich form and accommodates a dial in brown tobacco color, matched perfectly with the brown alligator strap.
At six o`clock you will find the vent of the 8 day power reserve indicator, moving from left to right as you are feeling it out by winding. The dual time zone is represented by a small subdial at 9 o`clock that also has the AM/PM distinction and at 3 o’clock is the 30 minutes counter.
A smart solution for avoiding an overcrowd dial is the fact that all of the hands, excepting the chronograph seconds one, are black oxidized and they just blend into the dial, without standing out and obstructing the visibility. On the left side of the case, at 8 o `clock, there is a single button that engages the column wheel chronograph, while on the right side is the iconic device that protects the crown. The fact that only one button can start/stop and reset the central hand is what makes this watch special, as most of the brands have two buttons for controlling the chronograph. All these functions are possible due to the P.2004 calibre, developed entirely in-house that you can admire watching it at work through the sapphire crystal see-through back. The separate bridges have a brushed finish look and you can only guess all the work and the technology putted in such a complicated and resistant watch.
The cushion shape case made from titanium feels light at the wrist and allows the watch to sit lower, to become one with its owner. This makes it also suitable for different fashion related styles, as it is a sporty yet elegant accessory, one that completes any outfit.
The chromatic of the dial is maintained at the level of the dark brown alligator strap that matches the main color of the dial with a contrasting stich matching with the details from the dial, a nice detail that offers fluidity. The Panerai titanium buckle assures that the watch stays put.
It offers 100m water resistance so it incorporates all modern features that make it desirable among the watch enthusiasts.
You can choose any type of strap you like and you can change it yourself with the kit provided by the manufacturer.
The creative potential and the ingenuity when it comes to producing a watch are both very high and superbly reflected in this representation of high-technology with the use of the perfect materials. No wonder Officine Panerai has a large group of loyal fans, the Paneristi, a group that becomes larger, as time goes by and watch lovers all over the world appreciate more and more the prestige and the quality of a Panerai watch.
