Panerai pulls an ace out of their DNA: a new Mare Nostrum

by on Jan.19, 2015, under Allgemein

The SIHH opened the doors at the Palexpo in Geneva on monday, january 19th, 2015 with yet another ace out of the Panerai DNA: a new Mare Nostrum Titanio chronograph (PAM00603) with mechanical hand-wound OP XXV calibre with a power reserve of 55 hours. The movement is developed on a Minerva 13-22 base with 18.000 vibrations per hour.

The 52 mm tonneau shaped case of the Mare Nostrum Titanio chronograph is made of brushed titanium, including a solid caseback, crown and pushers. Its water resistance is up to 3 bar. Typical for titanium watches from Panerai, this new Mare Nostrum Titanio chronograph bears a brown dial with two levels, just as the first vintage Mare Nostrum chronograph from 1943.

The chronograph functions are controlled by two push buttons, reading the central seconds hand and a minute counter dial at 3 o’clock. The permanent second hand is at 9 o’clock. The new Mare Nostrum Titanio is a Special Edition with only 150 units. Its great to see that the historic design of the Mare Nostrum chronograph from the 1940’s will be carried into the future of the brand with this new release at the 2015 SIHH.

A Panerai legend finally surfaced

by on Feb.21, 2010, under General

With great pleasure we took note of the release of the Mare Nostrum chronograph (PAM300) at the SIHH in Geneva, january 2010.

Finally Panerai has launched the legendary chronograph, which is a milestone in the brand’s heritage. We are sure that this watch, produced in only 99 units, will be come a sought after piece like PAM21, PAM203 and PAM267… giving applause to Panerai for turning the mythos into reality!

It will be interesting to see, if Panerai will keep this case design exclusively for the released special edition only, or if further Panerai chronographs come in this case – maybe in smaller size and with inhouse movements (P.2004)?
