Panerai in-house automatic caliber P.9002. This movement has 29 jewels, carries a 3 day power reserve thanks to the two barrels, beats at 28,800, and has 237 components. Featuring a Glucydur balance and Incabloc anti-shock.
The P.9002 takes “hacking” to the next level with a convenient seconds reset device. Pulling the crown to setting position automatically resets the seconds to 12:00 and the hand stays hacked until the time is set and crown pushed back in.
Please allow us to interrupt your gear turning and caliber learning to say thank you. Thank you for being here! Now, back to the movement..
The example pictured above was found in a PAM 347.
The P.9002 calibre, created entirely by Officine Panerai and used in a series of Luminor 1950 and Radiomir models, is fitted with various functions: it is an automatic calibre with a 3-day power reserve and a unique technical design which makes this movement immediately recognisable. The calibre has a diameter of 13¾ lignes and numerous features: two barrels which guarantee 72 hours of power reserve; a single piece rotor which winds by moving in both directions thanks to an automatic ratchet device; a balance wheel with adjusting screws, oscillating at a frequency of 4 Hz; a date display and a seconds reset device which resets the seconds hand, enabling the watch to be synchronized perfectly with a reference time signal. To house this movement, a specially made version of the Luminor 1950 case has been designed, keeping the proportions of the original but featuring a slightly less convex sapphire crystal which only barely protrudes from the bezel. The P.9002 is a variant of the P.9001 automatic calibre with several additional features: GMT, or rather a second time zone, indicated by a central hand, seconds reset and power reserve indicator.
