Got my new desk clock today. OK, what is so exciting about a desk clock. Stay with me on this. It is not a big clock but I like it. The basic specifications:
Functions: hours, minutes and seconds (what no calendar function, no alarm.....)
Case: stainless steel, 60 mm diameter, 20 mm thick
Crystal: I have no idea.....
Water resistance: its a desk clock, what water resistance?
Anyway, it is a mechanical clock, powered by a hand wind movement. I was told that at full wind, it will run for about 2 days.
Here is the desk clock....
Yes it is a homage watch. It is a homage to the Panerai Egiziano. Comes with a working locking lever and bezel (well somewhat working...). I will write a review of the watch soon.
The Egiziano was a watch issued to the Egyptian Navy in the 1950's. It is actually a Radiomir. Only about 50 pieces were made. Panerai reissued this watch this year as a Special Edition watch.
The watch on my desktop. It is a hulk of a watch (bad pun) so I placed it with my favourite superhero (perhaps the new Rolex Green Submariner would be a better choice).
Another close-up. It is a big watch. Even with my 8 inch wrist, it is too big. So, now it functions as my new desk clock.
