The mechanism of the rotation of the tourbillon cage created by Panerai is unusual in that a single rotation is completed in 30 seconds,instead of the traditional 60 and it rotates on a perpendicular axis, instead of parallel to that of the balance wheel. This special construction compensates more effectively position errors caused by the force of gravity, thus ensuring more accurate time measurement.
The skeletonised bridges and plates not only reveal the interlacing of the gear wheels and components of the watch but also the unwinding of the springs inside the three barrels which give the timepiece a power reserve of six days. The power reserve remaining is indicated on the back of the movement.
The new Radiomir 1940 Tourbillon GMT comes with a black alligator strap and a polished red gold folding buckle. And water-resistant up to 50 metres.
