The Monopulsante Destro 8 has a 47 mm titanium case, and is fitted with a home-made single button chronograph movement, one of the most strong part on Monopulsante Destro 8. Then what’s the difference with the PAM345 launched at 2011 SIHH.
First, the case diameter is 47 mm, the real size. since 6152-1 had its debut in 1946, the dome 47mm case and a big crown protection become some kind of Panerai symbols. Speaking of case, people may have no idea what Destro means. Destro means right in Italian, and thinking of that, this watch should be wore at right hand, as the crown and protection are set at 9 o’clock. This layout already existed, as you can find on watches that were designed for navy commandos. Second, PAM579 uses a different brown color that once was found on PAM345. Its luminous brown hands brings us a refreshments as most luminous are green. Only 300 editions makes quickly sell out once it hit the market.
P.2004/9 movement is applied to PAM579, as you can see, there are three barrels which offer 8 days of power reserve, which is kind of accomplishment. What impresses us deeply is that movement oscillates at a frequency of 28800 per hour, namely 4 Hz. Being contrast, many watches, in order to get a longer power reserve, reduces the frequency from 4 Hz to 3 Hz.
Plate on the case back is big and provides enough area for the power indicator. The movement consists of 329 movements, column wheels and two chronograph dials.PAM579 actually combines some of traditional features, as you will find the similar design on case and dial, and Panerai adopted some modern solutions to watches-modern movement and material. AS PAM579 has a home-made chronograph movement on it and different case material, it will surely has an wonderful performance, and a high price.
