Panerai has instilled the bond between timekeeping and astronomy inside one of its models: the Panerai Luminor 1950 Equation of Time 8 Days GMT Titanio replica available with a chocolate (PAM00656) or blue dial (PAM00670). The equation of time is a rare yet poetic complication to calculate and display the approximate difference of 15 minutes between solar time and conventional time.

The hours and minutes appear in the centre along with the luminescent arrow-tipped GMT hand. Two counters face each other: small seconds with an AM/PM indicator at 9 and the month at 3 above the date display at 4. The equation of time appears in a linear display between 5 and 7.

The 47mm titanium case with a lever crown protector houses the powerful manual wind P.2002/E calibre fuelling a 192-hour power reserve whose indicator appears on the back of the Panerai Luminor 1950 Equation of Time 8 Days copy watch.
