Historically, Panerai is known for oversized cases containing pocketwatch movements. So it was only logical that one day Panerai would make a pocketwatch but we didn’t expect this. Something of aexercise, this prototype pocketwatch is on display in a darkened room at Panerai’s booth at SIHH (hence the grainy photo). Actually, the glass this watch is held in appears to have some sort of photography distoriting properties to it.
The skeletonized, which bears more than a passing family resemblance, is entirely made of ceramic and so is the chain. The movement is Panerai’s handwound P.2005B (for “black”) calibre with tourbillon and GMT indication. There’s no official word if and if or when it might make it into production but there are rumors to that effect. You heard it here first.
