The Replica Submersible EcoPangaea Tourbillon GMT PAM01108 is equipped with a skeletonised movement featuring a second time zone and tourbillon. More unusually, the massive, 50 mm case of the PAM 1108 is fabricated from recycled steel.
Named EcoPangaea steel, the material is recycled from the discarded drive shaft of Pangaea, the Panerai Replica 35 m sailboat owned by South African conservationist and explorer Mike Horn.
The PAM 1108 is powered by the P.2005/T, a movement Perfect Panerai Replica has used on several other skeleton-tourbillon watches. Hand-wound with a six-day power reserve, the P.2005/T incorporates a second time zone function with a central GMT hand, as well as the novel tourbillon at 10 o’clock.
Unlike conventional tourbillons that rotate on the same plane as the dial, with the balance wheel oscillating the same axis of rotation, the Fake Panerai tourbillon rotates perpendicular to the dial, like a barbecue spit, and at high speed, making one revolution every 30 seconds.
