The challenge of a long power reserve, which enables the watch to run uninterruptedly for more than a week without requiring any manual intervention, was tackled by Panerai at the beginning of the 1940s with the usage of a hand-wound Angelus® movement with eight days of power reserve, a very solid, reliable calibre. These characteristics were vital for the Panerai watches used by the underwater commandos of the Royal Italian Navy, which had to be reliable even in the most extreme conditions of use. The long power reserve significantly reduced the manipulations on the winding crown, which improved the durability and helped to maintain water-resistance. Thus it became one of the distinctive elements of the Panerai watches and a part of the DNA of the Brand. It is indeed no coincidence that the first movement (P.2002) developed by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel in 2005 was a calibre with a power reserve of eight days.
