First Look: Panerai (PAM 570) Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Oro Rosso

Panerai PAM 570 Radiomir 1940 GMT - Perpetuelle

Today Panerai officially pulled the covers off its new Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Oro Rosso (PAM00570).  This is a Panerai “Special Edition” which means that production is limited — 300 pieces, in this instance.  The watch is as attractive from the back as it is the front.

It has a 47mm red gold (“oro rosso”) case and brown “sandwich” dial with a goregous satiné soleil finish on top.  Done in the characteristic Panerai style, there is a small seconds at 9 o’clock and date aperture at 3 o’clock; the arrow-shaped central hand indicates the second time zone, hence the engraved letters “GMT” at six o’clock.  A distinction of the “Radiomir 1940″ case is its thicker, more typical lugs as compared to the wire loop lugs on traditional “Radiomir” cases.

SIHH 2015 – Panerai Equation of Time 8 Days Steel (PAM 516 & PAM 601)

Panerai Radiomir 1940 Equation of Time 8 Days Steel  - Perpetuelle

Both of the last two pieces in the 2015 Panerai lineup have a sophisticated complication called the “equation of time” in them.   Panerai has opted to issue this uncommon complication in steel-cased versions of its Luminor 1950 design and Radiomir 1940Equation of Time 8 Days.  You can see this equation of time is shown via a linear indicator on the dial.   The difference between the mean time indicated by a watch and the true time indicated by the solar meridian is called the “equation of time” and it is the result of the combination of the Earth’s inclination and its elliptical orbit. The linear equation of time indicator displays this difference in time and it is set automatically when the date and the month are set on the watch.
