Online PR News – 03-August-2010 – – Officine Panerai sponsored and supported the Galileo Exhibition that celebrated the the 400th anniversary of Galileo′s first celestial discoveries earlier this month. Angelo Bonati, CEO of Officine Panerai made a short speech before the the international press and announced the launch of the the Panerai Jupiterium, an unusual and exceptional mechanical instrument that offers a special Equation of Time.

The Jupiterium is not that Panerai style in terms of shape. It is composed of a glass with a glass sphere sits inside and a square wooden base that includes a dial. To meet the theme of the Galileo Exhibition, the glass sphere features constellation of the zodiac featuring superluminova coating. And the sphree is fitted with titanium arms to firmly hold the Earth and planets. The constellation of the zodiac can be clearly seen all the day round either at north hemisphere or south hemisphere.

When it comes to time display, The Jupiterium is actually very Panerai. The dial has our familiar hands and hour markers that together tell hours and minutes. And the small seconds counter at 9 also includes 24 hour display with two apertures indicating am and pm. The mechanical instrument beating inside features 40-hour power reserve and a a unique perpetual calendar that determines the exact date, day, month and year without any need for manual regulation, even in leap years.

The Panerai Jupiterium is exclusively limited to 3 pieces. Though Panerai Jupiterium is not something that we normally expect from Panerai, it does looks intricated and interesting.
