The P.4000 calibre it's the first automatic movement with an off-centre micro-rotor completely developed and created at the Officine Panerai manufacture at Neuchâtel. This design means that the rotor is mounted off-centre and is therefore smaller in diameter than the calibre itself: a sophisticated technical solution enabling the thickness of the movement to be substantially reduced. The small oscillating weight is inserted within the movement rather than superimposed upon it and the result is a calibre which preserves all the Panerai characteristics of accuracy, reliability and solidity but with a thickness of only 3.95 mm.
3 Days Automatic Acciaio - 45 mm
The Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic has the P.4000 calibre. The thinnest automatic calibre developed by the Panerai Manufacture. The ingenious structure of this calibre and the work of the designers has enabled the thickness of the case to be reduced by about 40% (10.7 mm), while maintaining the solidity, strength and functionality of the watch and leaving its distinctive design unchanged. The design of the dial, with its sandwich structure, is minimalist, in perfect Panerai style: figures at the cardinal points, bar markers corresponding to the hours and an auxiliary small seconds dial at 9 o’clock.
