W&W in 2014 was hold in Hong Kong and many brands has novelties in this fair. As one those watch brands who attended this fair, it was a great opportunity to exhibit its new watches and technologies. So, in the second W&W, Panerai launched its latest movement-P.4000. This is the 18th movement in the Panerai movement series and it surely impressed audience with its new technologies.
Since the new movement is launched, then there must be a new watch to be the platform to let it play its performance, and the 572/573 are the latest watches and this also meet satisfy Panerai that it expected a twin watches to display it. This P.4000 is the first movement that is fitted with eccentric rotor, which is known as the mini-rotor. This movement can work 72 hours. The advantage of this rotor is that the movement can become thinner, which reaches only 3.95mm. The thinner movement contributes to the thinner case. P.4000 has two editions: the first one is applied on the stainless steel watches whose plate is dull polished and is embossed with beautiful patterns. What’s more, the rotor is tungsten-alloy. The another movement is applied to the red-gold edition whose rotor is made of 22k gold.
Some styles and designs from the 512/513 are visible on the 572/573: both play the simplicity to their best. Due to the same case, people who are not familiar with them may think there are the same, but difference can still be seen on four of them. The very difference lies on the 9 o’clock. 572/573 have small second as well as ‘9’ time indexes while 512/513 only have small second on the dial. The another difference is found on 6 o’clock. And the P.4000 movement launched by Panerai brand has a good performance and provide excellent power reserve for the Panerai watches.
