Panerai Radiomir Regatta One/Eight second Titanio

       Officine Panerai is a renowned Italian watch-making powerhouse rooted in Florence, in the second half of the 19th century, when it was created by a visionary spirit of his time, Giovani Panerai. Nowadays, a member of the prestigious Richemont International SA since 1997, Panerai manufactures impressive timepieces in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, according to the centenary life-guiding principles and philosophy of its visionary creator.

       Through a centenary existence, Panerai retained its unmistakable style, and never ceased to create over and, over again, timepieces defined by powerful masculinity, moderns design, and impeccable timekeeping accuracy and reliability, which inherently become coveted collectable items, among the brand’s exclusive clientele.

       This year, Panerai pleasantly impressed the world of Haute Horology, with a unique edition of 500 timepieces – Panerai Radiomir Regatta One/Eight Second Titanio Special Edition 2010, a boldly designed watch-line, which emanates, style, dynamism and masculinity.

       The timepiece features a slightly oversized, cushion-shaped, titanium case, measuring 47-mm in diameter, which demonstrates a sporty brushed finish, and which incorporates the brand’s patented wire loop strap-attachments, as well as the brand’s personalized winding crown and chronograph push pieces. Furthermore, the stylish architecture of the timepiece incorporates a round polished bezel and a transparent case-back fitted with Classic Yachts Challenge 2010 inscription, and provides 100-meters water-resistance, which makes the watch suitable for swimming and amateur diving.

       The timepiece features a stylish black dial, fitted seconds scale on the outer dial’s outer rim, with luminescent Arabic numeral hour markers, and hands, a minute and knot (calculation of boat speed) sub-dial, located at 3 o’clock position, 1/8th second sub-dial located at 9 o’clock, central split-seconds and chronograph.

       Furthermore, the timepiece is animated by a high-precision, self-winding mechanical movement, the exclusive Panerai OP XXI caliber, which incorporates 42 jewels, an Incabloc® anti-shock system, and the monometallic Glucydur® balance, which oscillates at a frequency of 28,000 vibrations per hour, and which confers the advantage of a good 42-hours power reserve.

       Moreover, the watch’s face is shielded by a corundum sapphire crystal, measuring 1.9 mm, and it comes matched with a black Panerai personalized leather strap, secured by a large brushed-titanium buckle. As far as the price tag goes, we expect it to be pretty exclusive, and somewhere around $17.900.00.
