Panerai Introduces its First Movement Entirely Manufactured In-House
by Mike Manjos on June 1st, 2009
2009 is an exciting year in the world of Panerai – it marks the introduction of the P.9000 calibre movement, Panerai’s first “workhorse” movement to be manufactured entirely in-house.
Panerai is releasing two models that incorporate the new movement, the PAM00312 (strap version) and the PAM00328 (bracelet version), both of which are protected by a 44mm stainless steel Luminor 1950 case with a basic black dial.
The watches feature an automatic mechanical movement with a power reserve capacity of three days, as well as small second hand and date complications. A see-through case back displays the P.9000 movement, and the dial is covered by sapphire crystal that has been treated with an anti-reflective coating. Additionally, the watches are water resistant to 300 meters.
