Light, strong and hypoallergenic, the remarkable physical, mechanical and corrosion-resistant qualities of titanium have made this metal one of the most valued in fine watchmaking. From the engineering viewpoint, its lightness makes it an exceptional material: titanium has the same strength as steel but is 40% lighter. The two layered construction accords a delicious depth to the dial that evokes a sense of discernible quality. Arabic numerals, in a modern font, feature at 6 o’clock and noon, whereas other hours are marked with simple batons. Panerai ownership invariably delivers nocturnal legibility par excellence and the PAM 526 proves to be no exception. The dial has a fantastic luminescence, featuring a delightful green emission. A small seconds display features at 9 o’clock, in common with several non- chronograph models in the Panerai catalogue, together with a 12-hour chronograph register positioned at 3 o’clock. The two subdials share the same proportion and deliver a balance to the dial which is very agreeable. Two central chronograph hands feature on the dial. The blue hand is a central chronograph seconds hand, whereas the orange hand is a central chronograph minutes hand. It is the latter which provides a fascinating point of differentiation.
