The New Panerai Tourbillon Watches

in Panerai | Sunday, August 17. 2008

Panerai PAM00315It was just last year that Panerai introduced the P.2005 Tourbillon GMT movement in its PAM00276 model. Though many thought the addition of a tourbillon model was a somewhat strange step for the sport-watch focused company, they have now proven themselves capable of achieving this substantial technical challenge. Now, with the success of its release Panerai gives us three new tourbillon models - the PAM00306 a Luminor 1950 Tourbillon GMT in titanium or steel, the PAM00315 Radiomir Titanium Tourbillon GMT, and the PAM00316 which is the Platinum version of the PAM00315. Panerai's tourbillon movement has some very distinctive features, the first being its unusual perpendicular position inside the case. The second, the rate at which the cage moves is twice that of most tourbillon movements completing two revolutions per minute. The tourbillon itself is only visible through the sapphire crystal on the back of the case. The only evidence of the tourbillon on the dial is a small blue dot within the seconds subdial which rotates every 30 seconds.

Panerai PAM00306The PAM00306 has 47mm brushed steel or brushed titanium case with a polished bezel and a 2mm thick see-through sapphire crystal case-back. Its hand-wound mechanical movement, Panerai Calibre P.2005, has a 6 day power reserve. It features hours, minutes, seconds, second time zone, power reserve indicator on the back, 24 hour indicator, and of course Tourbillon. It comes on an alligator strap with a brushed large-size buckle and is Water resistant to 100 meters.

Panerai PAM00316The PAM00315 and the PAM00316 have a 48mm brushed titanium or platinum case with removable wire loop strap attachments. The bezel is polished titanium or platinum and has a see-through sapphire crystal case-back. The hand wound movement, Panerai Calibre P.2005, features three spring barrels and 31 jewels. The functions of the watch are hours, minutes, seconds, second time zone, power reserve indicator on the back, 24 hour indicator, and Tourbillon. It comes on an alligator strap with a large-size brushed titanium buckle or white gold buckle. It is Water resistant to 100 metres.
