Pre-SIHH 2015: Introducing The Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Ceramica PAM580 Replica Wholesale Center


As far as background goes, in its earliest days Panerai had already used 8-day power reserve sequences powered by Angelus moves. This was to fulfill military requirements in a bid to produce the watches more reliable over a longer period of time and, reportedly, not to demand constant adjustment of their time and rewinding of the motion, rescuing the crown gaskets from early wear.Speaking of which, I timed it to get you guys out of fascination: it takes roughly one minute and 45 seconds to completely end a stop motion – and boy, is that a good deal of winding! Winding isn’t one of those pleasurable experiences the PAM561 can provide, either. As the crown hardly extends across the airplane of the concave top of the crown guard, you have to go and catch hold of this crown innumerable times while the sharp edge of the guard itself and the coined edge of the crown create matters somewhat less comfortable.The motion itself is in line with Panerai manufacture caliber aesthetics: it’s rugged first, intriguing second, and lovely third. It’s one of the most rugged-looking calibers out there, with just one massive plate covering the equipment train and the 2 barrels, and one bridge that retains the balance wheel protected. Revealed is a massive – and I really do mean huge – third wheel that’s fastened by a skeletonized bridge. Deep underneath it, near the barrel, is the center wheel while nearer to the balance wheel, and again deep in the bowels of the movement, is the fourth wheel and the escapement.The balance wheel itself is of a free-sprung construction, meaning its precision is adjusted via the more old-school and more elegant way of varying moment of inertia screws in the periphery of the balance wheel. Panerai clarifies that the bridge behind the balance is fixed by two screws beneath that are threaded rings that turn in both directions. The objective of this is to adjust the “end-shake” of the equilibrium staff pivots. This technical solution assists the escapement to keep on running more easily in case of shocks.

At SIHH 2015 Panerai Watch Dealers Usa Replica will unveil the Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Ceramica, a variation of its Luminor chronograph, in matte black ceramic.

Two years ago Panerai unveiled its P.9100 in-house chronograph movement, a self-winding calibre with a condensed chronograph display featuring just two central hands. First available only in steel or gold, the P.9100 has now made its way into the new Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Ceramica PAM580 with a black ceramic case. The look of the new chronograph is classic Panerai: the case is matte black ceramic with a 44 mm diameter, while the dial and hands have faux vintage ivory Super Luminova. 

The chronograph has just two hands, both mounted on the central axis of the dial. A blue hands records the elapsed seconds, while the rhodium plated hand just below does the same for the minutes. In addition the chronograph has a flyback function. Constant seconds is displayed in the sub-dial at nine o’clock, with the date just across. A sapphire display back – tinted grey as Panerai has done with other ceramic watches – reveals the P.9100 movement. It has a three day power reserve as well as the usual bells and whistles of a modern chronograph, like a column wheel and vertical clutch.

The price of the Luminor 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Ceramica has yet to be announced, but it will be between US$12,800 and US$30,900, which are the prices of the same model in steel and rose gold respectively. An educated guess would peg it at around US$18,000.
