The watch is made of AISI 316L stainless steel
This watch still continues the classic shape of the Panerai Radiomir 1940 series, made of stainless steel, the black sandwich dial holds multiple functions, the small second hand at 9 o’clock, and the date and month display at 3 o’clock The linear indicator display at 6 o’clock is named ‘Time Equation’. The difference between the normal time indicated by the watch and the real time indicated by the solar meridian is the ‘equation of time’. This difference is caused by the interaction of the inclination of the earth and its elliptical orbit. The linear time equation indicator used in this watch shows this time difference, and it is automatically set when setting the date and month of the watch.
