<h1>Special Edition</h1>

Loyalty to its historic origins perfectly blended with elegance and sophistication: these are the
characteristic features of the new Radiomir 8 Days GMT Oro Rosso.

The classic aesthetic of the Radiomir, here in red gold in the 45mm size, is combined with an
original and highly sophisticated version of the P.2002 movement, featuring finely skeletonised
bridges and barrels which can be seen through the large sapphire crystal on the back. The work
of skeletonising reveals the wheelwork, which is the same colour as the red gold of the case, and
the circular graining of the plates. It also enables the progressive unwinding of the mainspring
to be observed while the watch is running or the opposite when it is being wound. The great
attention to detail and the high standard of finish are also demonstrated by the hand-chamfering
of the bridges, the gold engravings on the movement and the choice of an inscription in relief,
instead of the more traditional engraving, recording the brand and technical details on the bezel
of the back.

The cushion case is attached to the strap by the classic wire strap attachments, also made of
red gold and attached to the caseband by four small screws (patented Officine Panerai), which
enable the strap itself to be quickly changed. The red gold used by Officine Panerai is 5NPt, a
special alloy with an unusually high percentage of copper (24.1%), which gives great depth to the
colour, together with a quantity of platinum of 0.4%, which helps to prevent any oxidation of the

The dark brown dial with satin-finished sunray treatment is protected by a sapphire crystal made
from corundum and with anti-reflective treatment. It has the sandwich construction typical of
Panerai watches: the luminous material is spread generously between the two thin metal plates,
the upper one of which is perforated to correspond with the hour markers and figures. Just
as luminous are the five hands (hour, minute, small seconds, second time zone and 24-hour
indication) and the pointer of the linear power reserve indicator.

The P.2002 manufacture calibre, completely designed and made by Officine Panerai, is handwound
with date, second time zone and seconds zero reset device. The power reserve is eight
days, a long duration already adopted in the 1940s by Panerai watches to avoid having to operate
the winding crown too often. In the P.2002 calibre such a long power reserve is achieved by
three spring barrels in series (patented Officine Panerai) which ensures the optimum power
at constant torque for eight days, so that the movement is supplied with even power over all
the days guaranteed by the power reserve. The P.2002 calibre, 13¾ lignes in diameter, has 21
jewels, three spring barrels, Kif Parechoc® anti-shock device and a balance which makes 28,800
alternations per hour.

Identified by the reference PAM00395, the Radiomir 8 Days GMT Oro Rosso is water-resistant
to 50 metres and is supplied with a brown alligator strap with an adjustable buckle of red gold.
