Inside the dusky case is Panerai’s P.9001 caliber, developed and constructed at the brand’s manufacture in Neuchatel, Switzerland. It is an automatic movement with (as implied in the model name) a three-day power reserve and a seconds-reset function. Consistent with the watch’s all-black aesthetic, the movement, which is visible through a dark-tinted sapphire crystal in the caseback, has gone through a blackening process to give it the same sleek, matte-black look as the case. The name “Tuttonero” is engraved on the caseback. The watch, which is limited to 500 pieces, carries a U.S. retail price of $16,300.
