The Complicated Panerai Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT
Telling people the exact name of your new timepiece might prove to be very difficult, but one glance at your wrist, and they won’t need anything else. Panerai has just unveiled its most complicated watch to date, named the Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT.
This marvelous new watch is apparently made to order only, with costs ranging up to – but not necessarily stopping at – $400,000, depending on the buyer’s customization wishes, with different case materials, hands and strap choices being on the table for future customers.
The double repeater mechanism and the new hand-wound skeletonized P.2005/MR manufacture-made caliber are the key selling points of this exquisite timepiece, which plays the hours, the 10-minute increments and the minutes – with the ability to switch between the two zones almost instantaneously, by pressing the pusher on the crown when it is in selector mode.
Next, the carillon function of this luxurious watch will add a touch of rhythm to your lives, as the 10-minute intervals are sounded with triple chimes. High quality always comes to mind with such exclusive products, which is why Panerai went for a 18-karat 5N rose gold 49 mm case, meant to deliver the best sound experience.
Developed by the Laboratorio di Idee, the P.2005/MR caliber offers 96 hours of power reserve and will resist up to 30-meter deep waters. For all these reasons, we think the Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT could be the greatest gift you could ever buy – for yourselves.
