Meet Panerai Radiomir 8 Days Ceramica 45 mm Watch

Sep 29, 2011
This year, fans of Panerai watches have at their disposal a new bold timepiece - the Panerai Radiomir 8 Days Ceramica 45 mm watch. The high-tech ceramic body of the novelty accommodates the brand’s in-house movement - the hand-wound P.2002/3 calibre. The timepiece is limited to 500 pieces.

The brand’s watchmakers opted for ceramic for this model as it is highly appreciated for its appearance, supreme hardness and scratch- and corrosion-resistance, as well as it resistance to high temperatures. The case of the new Panerai watch is crafted from synthetic ceramic - zirconium oxide. To obtain this material, it is necessary to subject it in powder form to the process of isostatic pressure – this way it acquires a particularly uniform, even appearance.

The Radiomir 8 Days Ceramica 45 mm watch is animated by the Panerai hand-wound P.2002/3 calibre that gives an advantage of an eight-day power reserve. The 225-component, 21-jewel movement, beating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, incorporates three spring barrels and offers a linear power reserve indicator on the dial. It also provides the date function via a small window at 3 o’clock.

One more peculiarity of the movement is the device that allows rapid adjustment of the hour hand, with no impact on the movement of the minute hand.

The cushion-shaped 45 mm case and the sandwich-construction of the Panerai watch stand out from the crowd due to their absolutely black appearance. The case is coupled with a buffalo leather strap fitted with a titanium buckle provided with DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating. The case-back reveals a smoked sapphire crystal window that allows to drop a glance at the movement.

All the dial details are covered with a special ecru Super-LumiNova substance for perfect legibility in the dark, including the big numerals and hour markers, the hands and the small-seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock, the date window and the power reserve indicator.

The Panerai Radiomir 8 Days Ceramica 45 mm watch joins the brand’s Historic Collection. The model is 100-meter water-resistant.
