With the new collection of Radiomir 1940 3 Days watches, available exclusively in our own boutiques throught the world, Panerai invites an exploration of the thousand shades of the blue of the seay, applied to the dial by a new, exclusive Manufacturing process.

PANERAI BLUE DIAL - THE DEPTH OF THE SEA

The reflections of light which penetrate the depths of the sea create a chromatic spectacle which never fails to astonish and fascinate the human spirit. Indeed no other colour has the power to evoke the infinite in the way that blue does, through its natural association with the sky and the sea and through the innumerable evocative tones it can assume.

The new dial of the Radiomir 1940 3 Days seems to want to capture these infinite shades and their intensity by means of sophisticated satiné soleil workmanship, and thanks to the use of various tones of blue, the dial is tinged in such a way that the outer part is a darker, more intense colour corresponding to the markers, which thus appear even more legible, and lighter towards the centre.

The new Radiomir 1940 3 Days is available in five versions which are distinguished by size, materials and function. The Radiomir 1940 cushion case which unites all the models is strong and solid with a minimalist linear design, and it is available in AISI 316L steel (42 mm, 45 mm or 47 mm in diameter) or in an elegant red gold case (45 mm) whose tone goes superbly well with the deep blue of the dial.

On the back of the case of each example, an original piece of workmanship reveals a glimpse of the movement through a swirling design recalling the waves of the sea, created by a metallisation process carried out on the sapphire glass of the back.

All the five models of the Radiomir 1940 3 Days are fitted with a calibre made in-house by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, located at the heart of the region with the oldest watchmaking tradition in the world. The model with automatic winding is available either in a version with hours, minutes and small seconds or in versions enhanced with other useful functions.

The two time only models, in steel (PAM00933) or in red gold (PAM00934), use the P.4000 automatic calibre, a sophisticated concentration of technical watchmaking distinguished by its use of an off-centre bidirectional microrotor (in 22 carat gold in the gold version, and in tungsten in the steel one) which enables a power reserve of up to three days to be stored.

The other two creations are fitted with the P.4001 and P.4002 calibres, developed from the P.4000 but with a date, GMT 24 hour display and indication of the remaining power on the back (PAM00945) or on the dial (PAM00946).

Finally, for those who enjoy the ritual of hand-winding, there is a version fitted with the P.3000 calibre, with a power reserve of three days. This model (PAM00932) is the largest (47 mm in diameter), and it has a classic minimalist design, with a lightly domed sapphire crystal protecting a dial of absolute simplicity and purity.

The Radiomir 1940 3 Days in steel are water-resistant to 10 bar (a depth of about 100 metres) while the red gold model has a limit of 5 bar. All are fitted with a blue alligator strap, which goes perfectly with the colour of the dial, and its contrasting beige sewing recalls the colour of the luminous substance used on the hour markers.

The Alligator strap combines premium quality and simplicity, guaranteed by the highest technical and manufacturing standards. This specially selected blue leather used for Officine Panerai watches is taken from the central part of the alligator hide and stamped out according to TEC standards (Toutes Écailles Carrées = rectangular scales only).

This part of the hide has large, regular scales, giving the straps a unique look. The new blue lineup Radiomir 1940 3 Days emphasizes the close connection of PANERAI with the sea.

Every model is supplied in an elegant blue lacquered cherry wood box, inside which is a spare strap of blue rubber, or a blue fabric one for the 42 mm model.

Proceeds to benefit One Drop in its mission 
to raise awareness for critical water issues


LAS VEGAS On Friday, March 2, some of the biggest names in music came together to support the sixth annual One Night for One Drop event imagined by Cirque du Soleil®, raising funds and awareness to benefit critical water issues worldwide.

Held inside the Michael Jackson ONE Theatre at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, this year's production was inspired by the life of GRAMMY®-nominated singer-songwriter Jewel.

As part of the evening's live auction, one of the highlights was Audemars Piguet's Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar unique piece. The 18-carat rose gold watch featured the most classic complication in all of watchmaking with a special oscillating weight engraved with a reproduction of the historical Audemars Piguet Manufacture.

Making the piece a true one-of-a-kind was the reversed dial and counter tones. When the hammer finally came down, the price was $240,000 making it the evening's top performing lot. In total, the evening raised $1,156,060. All proceeds from the event will benefit One Drop's global water efforts, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Las Vegas Community.

Presented by MGM Resorts International, the electrifying, one-night-only performance captivated the sold-out audience by taking them through pivotal moments of Jewel's life and making them relatable using popular themes such as family, love, betrayal and the courage to forgive.

Breathtaking performances by artists from all seven resident Cirque du Soleil shows accompanied Jewel. Guests were then invited to enjoy performances by Nicholas Petricca of the popular pop/rock band Walk The Moon.

AUDEMARS PIGUET CELEBRATES HAUTE 
HORLOGERIE MILESTONE IN MEXICO

For Audemars Piguet, astronomical observation has always been an inspiration in creating exceptional masterpieces to measure time. Such inspiration gave birth to the Perpetual Calendar complication, one of the most iconic complications in the history of Haute Horlogerie.

Click, to see the large size. BIG FOTO






Since its founding, in 1875, the Manufacture of Le Brassus has improved its horological interpretation of stellar rotation to measure, with absolute precision, the minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years, including leap years, as well as the phases of the moon.

The creation of the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Latin America Edition marks a fresh opportunity to share this fascination for horological achievement with collectors, brand friends and retailers, perpetuating the Audemars Piguet legacy in the world of Haute Horlogerie. This true masterpiece, limited to 100 pieces in pink gold, has a pink gold dial with the “Grande Tapisserie” motif and blue hemispheres. Engraved with “Audemars Piguet”, its oscillating weight is a reminder that the history of time measurement is also a story of human know-how.

The celebration of this special edition was marked by a dinner created by Mexican chef Enrique Olvera in the sumptuous setting of the Tamayo Museum in Mexico City, one of the city’s most iconic and emblematic cultural venues. Guests enjoyed an unforgettable evening where they saw for themselves the role that astronomy has played in stretching the bounds of human ingenuity.

Antonio Seward, Audemars Piguet North America CEO, explained that the Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar Latin America Edition is reflects the Manufacture’s strong relationship with the region, a sympathy that has existed for many decades, long before the current enthusiasm for Haute Horlogerie. “We dedicate this watch to Latin America with love. We share the same pioneering spirit!” said Seward.

During dinner, guests were shown notable examples from the more than 100 years that Audemars Piguet has dedicated to constant improvement in creating and developing perpetual calendars. An example from the XXth century was a gold and platinum pocket watch with a cushion shape case, engraved and dated (1954) for President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

One of the most popular topics of the evening concerned the evolution of the pocket watch into the wristwatch, a fascinating process of progressive miniaturisation that started on a large scale in the 1920s and implied technical advances such as new mechanisms designed to indicate leap years on the dial. A remarkable example from 1957 was shown, for which the13VZSSQP Calibre was created.
