Feature 1: Use the pendulum clock of the Italian specialty store as design inspiration
Before Panerai made the first watch for the Royal Navy of Italy, the Orologeria Svizzera (Swiss Watch Shop) store, founded in 1860, was already selling pocket watches, watches, table clocks and gorgeous watches made by fine watchmakers. Pendulum clock and other works. This specialty store facing the Florence Baptistry is still standing today. The first floor of the store has previously displayed an impressive collection of pendulum clocks. The Panerai 791 is inspired by one of the dials of the pendulum clock. This newly designed Panerai watch has an ivory white surface of the 791 and a 790 black dial, but if you want to highlight the classic style Sven’s temperament, in general, the light-colored face plate will be more interesting than the black face plate.
In order to highlight the classic style of the watch, the brand uses Plexiglas® resin glass mirror instead of sapphire crystal.
Feature two: clues to vintage design
Although the Panerai 791 looks so gentle, its Radiomir 1940 case has a large size (stainless steel) with a diameter of 47 mm and a water resistance of 100 meters. 791 The entire watch surface is polished. The bezel surrounds the slightly arched Plexiglas® Plexiglas mirror, not the mainstream sapphire mirror of modern watches. This is to echo the design of some Panerai classic models. The original leather strap of the model contrasts with beige stitching, and the strap is also embossed with the OP logo. The 791’s dial pattern is simple and imbued with a nostalgic atmosphere, including charming timepieces in the Art Deco font, surrounded by a track-type minute scale outer ring and a thinner inner ring. The minute hand, which makes the 791 different from most Panerai watches online, looks very unique.
Panerai 791 is equipped with the brand’s homemade P.3000 manual-winding movement. The movement frequency is 21,600vph, and it uses a dual barrel to output three-day kinetic energy.
Feature 3: Panerai often uses a manual 3-day chain movement
Regardless of whether the Panerai 791 or 790 is equipped with a P.3000 manual winding movement, this movement features a three-day power reserve from two barrels. The base plate of the movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back. Its surface is brushed. The most eye-catching thing is the double-supported bridge, which firmly fixes the balance wheel with a diameter of 13.2 mm. In addition, the P.3000 movement has a quick adjustment mechanism, which can move the hour hand back and forth in units of one hour each time without affecting the operation of the minute hand or watch, making the time adjustment process easier and happier.
