Panerai 1940 3 Days GMT Automatic Accaiaio

Four new models make their entry into the Radiomir 1940 Collection, offering Panerai watch enthusiasts not only a broader selection of creative dial designs but also and most importantly an ever wider choice of technical features. As in all Panerai watches, the dial of the Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio – 45mm (PAM00627) is notable for its extreme legibility, both under normal lighting conditions and also in the dark.

The classic, large baton hour markers and figures are covered with  Super-LumiNova® and all the other elements stand out with great clarity against a black dial with clou de Paris finish in relief.

The watch is powered by the P.4001 calibre, which is developed from the automatic P.4000 movement whose main technical characteristics it shares: the off-centre micro rotor which rotates in both directions, the power reserve of three days stored in two spring barrels linked in series, the mechanism for stopping the balance. The calibre also has some additional functions: the date, the GMT function with a central hand which indicates the time in a second time zone, am/pm indication (relative to home time) in the small seconds dial and, finally, indication of the remaining power reserve on a bridge of the movement.
