This 2015 release from Panerai is a special edition watch with a mechanical hand wound mechanism featuring a sophisticated complication called the equation of time displayed by a linear indicator on the dial and a power reserve of 8 days indicator on the back.

The difference between the mean time indicated by a watch and the true time indicated by the solar meridian is called the “equation of time” and it is the result of the combination of the Earth’s inclination and its elliptical orbit. The linear equation of time indicator displays this difference in time and it is set automatically when the date and the month are set on the watch.

This fascinating mechanism is housed in a 47 mm stainless steel case which is polished and brushed, combined with an alligator leather strap.
