Panerai’s new Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT watch is equipped with an exclusive design tourbillon speed adjustment device, and is equipped with outstanding three-question function to read local time or second with music Time zone time has become the most complicated watch of the Panerai Nou Chatel factory so far.
Any cultural system in the world has an ancient tradition of telling the time with bells or other musical instruments. There is also a function in the high-end watch industry that reflects this wonderful tradition, which is the function of three questions. Just tap the time button to activate the time function and use the bell music to read the hours and minutes.
In the process of conceiving the new Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT watch, Panerai looked back on the history of the brand, looked at the deep relationship between the brand and the ocean for more than 100 years, and explored the nautical world’s tradition of ship clocks and clocks for design inspiration. When the ship goes to sea, the bell is an important guide for life at sea: the crew wakes up in the morning in the bell of the ship, reminds them of the meal time by the bell, and sticks to the shift in the bell. The bell’s functions also include alerting, calling crews, and notifying other ships of the location when the fog is thick and vision is unclear. Today, the new special edition watch created by Panerai Neuchatel Fine Watchmaking Factory recreates this time-honored tradition through the unique bell music.
Zhong Lesheng: Time is indicated by three rhythms
Panerai created the new P.2005 / MR manual winding skeleton movement for the Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT watch, equipped with advanced three-question function and a number of superb technologies, and faithfully presenting the brand’s belief: by combining Innovative technology and simple structure create practical and easy-to-use watches.
The timekeeping device is activated by the key at 8 o’clock, and the three hammers in the movement will ring the three small clocks fixed on the movement and the case, telling the time with a bell sound. Panerai abandoned the traditional two-tone hammer system and replaced it with a three-tone hammer to make the bell music sound different combinations, and produce a melody like a bell sound. The timekeeping system follows the traditional habit. The first sound is the deepest to identify the hour; the last and highest tone is used to knock out the minutes. As for the second sound is a string of three tones, each time it sounds, it represents 10 minutes instead of the traditional 15 minutes.
The operation method of the timekeeping system is as follows: When reading the minute repeater watch at 10:28, it will first represent 10 o’clock with 10 bells, then another 15 minutes with another bell, and then 13 independent bells, Represents the remaining 13 minutes. Panerai’s Minute Repeater Carillon Zhong Le minute repeater system first sounds 10 bells to represent 10 o’clock, then two strings of three melody to represent two 10 minutes, and finally sounds 8 independent bells to report minute. The 10-minute interval timekeeping system can reduce the number of ringing bells in the final repetition, more easily and quickly calculate the reported time, and can respond to the timekeeping mode of electronic watches.
The bell sound of the minute repeater system, through the case made of red gold and the special structure of the case, is even more crisp and pleasant. The case is welded by two independent parts, and a hollow space is left in the center to resonate Zhong Le sound and improve the sound quality. The case is hand-welded by craftsmen, so the tone of each watch has its own characteristics. The bell sound is different, but different.
New dual time-division time reporting system
Panerai Minute Repeater Carillon watch minute repeater function can read the local time and the second time zone time, the second time zone is displayed by the central arrow pointer on the dial, and the display window at 3 o’clock indicates the second time zone AM / PM time. This function is driven by the dual time-division time reporting device. The operation method is simple, and the time reporting function of two time zones can be easily selected and activated. The process does not affect the movement of the movement.
To prevent accidental activation of the alarm function, the device is set to rotate the crown slightly, and then press the button at 8 o’clock for Zhongle to start. There is a black dot on the crown to indicate the rotation angle required to start the time signal device, and when the black point turns to the front, Zhong Le will not make a sound. At this time, you can select the time by pressing the button on the crown Time zone, the red HT / LT (local time / second time zone) display at 8 o’clock shows the selected time zone.
Panerai patented tourbillon speed regulator
Except for the minute repeater and the P.2005 / MR manual winding movement (made in the “Laboratorio di Idee” workshop of Panerai Neuchatel for 4 years), the watch is equipped with Panerai The tourbillon speed regulator is also a masterpiece of craftsmanship. The exquisite hollow-out technology on the front and bottom of the watch reveals the beauty of the tourbillon speed regulating device. The rotation method of Panerai’s patented tourbillon speed governing device is different from the traditional tourbillon. The traditional tourbillon frame will continue to rotate to offset any errors caused by gravity and impact. Panerai’s innovative tourbillon speed control device rotates the tourbillon frame vertically around the center axis of the balance wheel instead of parallel rotation. In addition, the traditional tourbillon frame takes one minute to make one rotation, the P.2005 / MR movement frame takes one second to rotate in only 30 seconds, and the small seconds at 9 o’clock on the dial also identifies the position that corresponds to the rotation of the frame. The combination of a high-speed frame and a specially designed construction method effectively compensates for errors caused by gravity and ensures that the time measurement function of the watch is more accurate.
The exquisite cutout technology of the watch not only makes the timepiece sound more attractive, but also allows people to appreciate the superb technology and meticulous retouching details of the P.2005 / MR movement. All components of the dial are directly set on the outer ring engraved with ‘RADIOMIR 1940 PANERAI’ and ‘MINUTE REPEATER CARILLON’. The bottom of the case can see the small hammer of the minute repeater and two spring barrels. The barrel provides a power reserve of at least four days for the watch, and the movement is equipped with a readable power reserve display.
The watch’s crocodile leather strap with a new folding clasp complements the hollow design of the other parts. The new buckle is designed by Panerai, the material is the same as the case, and the length can be adjusted, so that the watch firmly embraces the wrist.
