Panerai’s roots may be in supplying timepieces to the military, but the Swiss watch manufacturer has introduced a bevy of more complicated, contemporary designs like last year’s Lo Scenziato Radiomir 1940 Tourbillon GMT. Now you can add another watch to that list: the Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT. Featuring Panerai’s first-ever in-house tourbillon movement (2007’s unique 30-second P.2005, which rotates perpendicular to the movement plate instead of on the same plane), the watch is highlighted by an unconventional decimal repeater — one that uses three gongs and a trio of hammers to chime the hours, 10-minute intervals past the hour, and number of minutes past the 10-minute interval as opposed to the usual hours/quarters past the hour/minutes past the last quarter hour. The timepiece even employs a dual timezone function that, unlike most watches, can chime the time in both.

Panerai’s most technical watch to date, the Radiomir 1940 Minute Repeater Carillon Tourbillon GMT is expected to soon be available with a bevy of customization options and a price that starts around $395,000 USD.
