This impressive creation is a worthy homage to the history of the brand. In 1943, Officine Panerai supplied the Mare Nostrum chronograph to the Italian Navy. Because of the ongoing historical events, the further development of the model became impossible.
Now, Panerai has come up with the idea of recreating the Mare Nostrum watch, and the new version is based on the original with utmost attention to the smallest detail. It has been issued as limited series of just 99 items.
The reproduced Panerai Mare Nostrum watch is offered with a 52 mm case, rendered in AISI 316L brushed steel. It is fitted with a winding crown, which bears the engraving - Mare Nostrum. The case is also equipped with brushed steel push-buttons for the chronograph functions. The push-buttons are located at 2 and 4 o’clock. The watch case features a brushed steel bezel and a back, manufactured from the same material.
Inside the new Panerai watch is an exceptional manually-wound Panerai OP XXV calibre movement, set with 22 gemstones. It features a monometallic Glucydur balance wheel, beating at the rate of 18,000 vibrations per hour. The movement is equipped with Incabloc anti-shock system. Outfitted with a swan’s neck regulator, it also features bridges, graced with Cotes de Geneve finish. The watch functionality includes hours, minutes, small seconds, as well as chronograph with two counters.
The intriguing Panerai Mare Nostrum watch is secured to the wearer’s wrist on a Panerai personalized green fabric and leather strap equipped with an oversized brushed steel buckle. The Panerai watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, provides 30-meter water-resistance.
