Panerai was involved with many military projects that included micro-mechanics and electro-mechanics. This week we concentrate on devices that were used to delay the explosion (mostly for torpedoes) and on devices to measure and check the above

Cheers and best from the holyland,

This interesting piece was used to measure the accuracy of timing devices such as used with torpedos. The center of this device housed a classic pocket-watch cased chronograph, branded "Mare Nostrum" and using a Minerva caliber 19/14 (who said no connections between Panerai and Minerva?)



Complete device (did I mention Rolex? )







Chronograph (property of Sig. Ferretti)

I remember when you bought a timer at Viareggio, you wondered how you would get it home on the plane

Enjoying reading the new forum, not experienced enough to chime in but it's good to see some of the old guard returning

Hope to see you in May

The electro-mechanical timer/detonator. Very interesting piece, electrical with a mechanical backup, 9 days.

The watch is good in the kitchen, the watch says to you when your eggs are boiled.

Is this a device that would hold a small charge or does this attach to something (torpedo? bomb?)
