For the cover story of WatchTime’s September-October issue, on sale next week, our editors test the Panerai Radiomir 8 Days Ceramica http://www.goingyourwaytours.com/best-panerai-replica-uk.html. In this feature from our June 2009 issue, we explore Panerai’s rise to manufacture status.
When it comes to making movements, Officine Panerai is on the move. At the SIHH show in Geneva in January, Panerai introduced four new movements designed and produced in-house.
The new P. 2006 caliber is a manual-wind movement with an eight-day power reserve that beats inside the Luminor 1950 8 Days Rattrapante with a linear power-reserve indicator. Panerai also introduced a new family of movements, the P. 9000 series, three automatic calibers equipped with a range of different functions. The movements are used in six new watches in Panerai’s Luminor 1950 collection.
