Alessandro Baldieri Seamonster PANAREA

By TLex Introducing the new Alessandro Baldieri Seamonster PANAREA AKA the Seamonster V2.0. The watch case which has a diameter of 46mm is water-resistant to 200 meters or 660ft. It is fitted with a sapphire crystal and a rotational divers bezel.


I am not sure if the crown is a screw-down type, but let's assume that it is. The caseback is secured by six screws. It features an etching of a divers mask, which you can see a drawing of if you use the link at the top.


There are a total seven dial, bezel and case finishes available, three of which are with gold IP plating. Four of the models have contrasting black bezels. The dials are a little over-designed, some of them lack lume at 6 and 12, some of them lack lume all together.


The watches are powered by the new Officine Balderi Cal. IT3HD, a modified Seagull based automatic movement with 25 jewels and a power reserve of 42hrs. Officine Balderi have also replaced the springs. They speak very highly of the movement's performance.
