in Panerai | Saturday, January 31. 2009

Officine Panerai has unveiled a new addition to its the Radiomir collection, the Radiomir Egiziano watch which will make it debut at SIHH 2009. The new Egiziano watch is a recreation of a special model that Panerai produced in the 1950's in extremely small numbers for the Egyptian Navy. The reproduction will only be available in a very limited edition of 300 pieces.The Radiomir Egiziano has a matte black "sandwich" dial with yellowed luminous indications. The timepiece has a brown leather strap with a flat brushed titanium "GPF-Mod Dep" tang buckle. The Radiomir Egiziano is water resistant to 300 meters.

The oversized case is constructed from brushed titanium and measures 60mm across. The Radiomir Egiziano features the Panerai crown security device inherited from the original watch developed for the Egyptian Navy, as well as a bi-directional rotating bezel. While the Egyptian navy watch's original model was equipped with an Angelus hand-wound movement that offered an 8-day power reserve, the new Egiziano features the Officine Panerai in-house P.2002 caliber. The watch has a 8-day-power-reserve and a glucydur balance borne upon an adjustable bridge. The balance frequency is 28,800 vibrations per hour.
