The smallest part is only slightly thicker than the diameter of the hair. Some gears are even thinner to only 0.12 mm. The gap between the parts also needs to be carefully calculated. During the design, the positions of the parts are delicately arranged, with an accuracy of one hundredth of a millimeter, and the entire table thickness is only 3.65 millimeters.

This year’s Panerai’s new product can be summarized in one sentence, that is, the 1940 is a stopwatch; 1950 is a left-hander; Luminor has been out for 8 days; Radiomir has a pocket watch and a large pendulum clock. Of course, the most noteworthy must be the two series of 1940 and 1950. Let’s first say that there were two models in 1950 and 1950. One was an 8-day titanium case and the other was a 3-day steel case. Out, we mainly talk about this 3-day power reserve left-hander. This watch is made of stainless steel and has different identifying characteristics from the classic Luminor 1950 case in details: the outer periphery of the case is designed with sharp corners, and the pillow shape is looming. This detail of the new case is directly taken from some Panerai’s pillow-shaped Radiomir watch introduced in 1936 and gradually transformed into a large-scale Luminor watch with bridge protection. The classic watch design of this period elaborated the important transformation of the brand at that time.
For details of the watch, please click: The Radiomir 1940 chronograph with a diameter of 45 mm is available in red, white and platinum. The case has simple and elegant lines, inherited from Panerai from 1940 to the classic pillow case with linear lugs. The first Radiomir design began to transform into a more robust and robust Luminor 1950 case design. Every detail of the 1940 case is polished and finished, including two buttons to control the chronograph function, a cylindrical winding crown and a bezel. The bezel surrounds the Plexiglas® glass, which is very similar to the material used by Panerai to create the original model for the Royal Italian Navy.
