Officine Panerai delivers an exclusive edition of its Radiomir, which features made-over aesthetics and technology, plus all the usual trimmings you’d expect. Say hello to the Radiomir Tourbillon GMT Ceramica – 48 mm. The main novelty of the new timepiece is the refined skeleton structure, clearly visible from the dial. In fact, the dial shape allows the numerous parts of the movement to be seen, including the tourbillon regulator at 10-11 o’clock. The dial is protected by sapphire crystal made from corundum, with double anti-reflective coating.
Despite the technical complexity of the tourbillon movement, this watch is 100-meter waterproof, thus qualifying as a true traditional Radiomir. Comprising 277 parts, the movement is the result of exceptional work by the maestro watch-makers at Officine Panerai and, thanks to its three spring barrels, enables a power reserve of six days, indicated by a hand that can be seen through the back plate moving through the arc of a circle. It comes on a leather strap with adjustable buckle in scratch-resistant burnished steel. The watch case measures 48 mm diameter and is sculptured from a zirconium oxide ceramic. The new Radiomir watch, which carries a dizzying price tag of $160,000, will be available in a limited edition of just 30 pieces. [via perpetuelle]
