The three new creations of the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel—the 8 Days Power Reserve Acciaio, the 8 Days Power Reserve Titanio, and the Left-Handed 8 Days Acciaio—are unique, and maintain the Panerai identity. The Acciaio uses the new P.5002 hand-wound calibre, has a stainless steel case and a classic black sandwich dial with the small seconds counter at 9 o’clock. The Titanio has the same functions and design as the steel version, but the case and the device for protecting the winding crown are made of titanium. The left-handed Acciaio has a steel case, black sandwich dial, and a strap of the same colour. Its most distinctive characteristic is the positioning of the winding crown, and its related protecting device at 9 o’clock.
