Panerai Sails With America’s Cup Watches

Sailing lovers were treated to the kickoff of the 35th America’s Cup presented by Louis Vuitton in Bermuda a couple of weekends ago. The competition for the oldest trophy in international sports dates back to 1851. Defending the Cup is America’s Oracle Team USA (which won the 2013 America’s Cup races and the 2010 series before that). Five challengers are now racing one another over the course of nearly a month to determine which will be the final challenger. Officine Panerai is the Official Watch of the 35th America’s Cup.

How Many Watches Should Be in Your Watch Wardrobe?

We often get questions about what constitutes a watch wardrobe. Is it five watches or six watches, or a dozen or more? There is no easy answer, and the answer varies depending on the person. Watches are the perfect gift to help start or boost a watch wardrobe, making this subject worthy of discussion with the upcoming Holiday season. Watch pundits say you can never have too many timepieces, and watch collectors often buy again and again. Many are hard-pressed to sell their beloved stash, though. According to the last watch collector survey conducted by LGI Network, the true collector owns approximately 19 watches. The average person, however, may not need this large of a "watch wardrobe" and, ... [Read More]

Meet Panerai’s Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT

panerai-radiomir-1940-minute-repeater-carillon
Panerai has unveiled its most complicated watch to date: the Made-to-Order Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT. The watch is incredibly complicated in its technology and mechanics, which include a three-hammer double minute repeater mechanism that enables it to chime a local time and a second time zone. The wearer can even switch between the two time zones via a pusher on the crown when it is in selector mode. Powered by the new hand-wound skeletonized P.2005/MR manufacture-made caliber, the watch chimes the hours, 10-minute increments and minutes on different notes.   The tourbillon escapement features a unique system wherein the rotation of the tourbillon cage is on an ...

Meet the Panerai ‘Due’ Watch

Panerai surprised us last month with an all new Luminor watch: the Due. While inspired by the classic 1950s Luminor, the Due is designed to be more versatile thanks to the thinner, lighter weight case. The Panerai Luminor line is offered in rose gold or in stainless steel, in two sizes and in either a hand-wound P1000 movement or with an automatic caliber with three days of power reserve. The Due series is not a dive watch line; instead, the watches are water resistant to 30 meters. Among the timepieces making their debut: the 42mm hand-wind Luminor Due 3 Days Acciaio and the automatic Due, also in gold or steel, but in a larger, 45mm size. ... [Read More]

Panerai Unveils First White Dial in Radiomir 1940 Collection at SIHH

This year at SIHH, Panerai did something we don't often see. The brand unveiled a white-dialed watch. The all-new Radiomir 1940 3-Days Automatic Acciaio 42mm watch is the brand’s first model in the Radiomir 1940 collection to feature a white dial. Make no mistake, this is a big deal for Officine Panerai, which typically uses black dials. The watch is powered by the the P.4000 automatic movement with off-cantered micro-rotor, and features highly luminescent hands and markers. Water resistant to 100 meters, the 42mm cushion case is crafted in stainless steel, and the case back features a round sapphire crystal window to view the movement.... [Read More]

A Close Look at the Panerai 1940 Radiomir

Featuring Italian styling and Swiss craftsmanship, the Panerai 1940 Radiomir watch recalls the brand's rich roots with updated appeal. This distinctive timepiece is offered in several versions, both automatic and hand wound, but today we want to bring you a close-up look at the automatic watches.
