Eilean, a Bermuda sailing ship built in 1936, not only represents Panerai in the classic sailing industry, but also inspires a number of Panerai limited edition nautical instruments: barometer, hygrometer, thermometer and wall clock Are exclusively available at Panerai stores.
Eilean was built at a time when Panerai was supplying the Italian Navy with the first prototype of a Panerai watch. Eilean is the late work of the legendary designer William Fife III in the shipbuilding industry. It comes from the high-end classic sailing ship in his hands, and there are still many ships sailing on the sea. Panerai purchased Eilean in 2007, and after a long and precise restoration project, it was able to return Eilean to its former style. It was the world’s most important classic and classic sailing tour event-the ‘Penerai Classic Sailing Challenge’ Showcases every year. Eilean is known for its beautiful waterline radians. It is not only a transcendental example of pure and aesthetic design, but also a symbol of infinite enthusiasm for the ocean. The restored Eilean is equipped with a number of marine instruments specially designed by Panerai to return to the sea, and these marine instruments are also the inspiration for many new models.
Barometer, hygrometer, thermometer and wall clock, the new Panerai marine instrument, reproduce the classics of the maritime industry with the beautiful lines of EILEAN.
The new barometer, hygrometer, thermometer and wall clock are also made of AISI 316L stainless steel. AISI 316L stainless steel is a low carbon alloy with excellent corrosion resistance. The four instruments are 14 cm in length and width, with a black dial, which is extremely simple in design. It improves readability to the highest level and displays air pressure, relative humidity, temperature and time. These four instruments used to be indispensable to every sailor. Even if most modern marine instruments have been replaced by electronic instruments, they are still invaluable treasures for navigators who were obsessed with the atmosphere of the old sailing era.
The barometer was invented by Italian physicist EvangelistaTorricelli in 1643, providing accurate air pressure data for weather forecasting: high air pressure represents clear weather, and low air pressure warns of bad weather. Panerai’s barometer is stored in a metal box called a ‘barometer’. The barometer is compressed by the pressure of different degrees, and expands and contracts with the pressure, and transmits the change to the pointer.

The function of the hygrometer is to display the humidity in the air, which has helped navigators assess rainfall or fog conditions for more than two centuries. When the hygrometer first came out, its use was very different from today. The first hygrometer appeared in the 14th century to eliminate disputes between wool merchants and buyers, because the price of wool is determined by weight, and different humidity every day will affect the weight of wool, and it will become heavy when wet. Lightens when dry.

A thermometer is an instrument that measures temperature. The first person in the world to turn a thermometer into actual readings was the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius. He measured the temperature with a mercury thermometer in 1742 and divided the temperature from the freezing point to the boiling point into one hundred parts. Become a universal temperature scale for future generations. Panerai’s thermometer measures temperature with two metals with different thermal expansion coefficients: a spiral-shaped metal sheet will bend due to different temperatures, and one end of the metal sheet is connected to a temperature pointer, which shows the temperature change at the angle of the pointer rotation.

Time is an extremely important data for navigators of the past, because time helps to calculate longitude and thus grasp the position and course of the ship. Voyagers needed precise timepieces when they went out to sea, and this demand later led to the birth of nautical astronomical clocks. Nautical astronomical clocks are precision instruments that can still function properly in harsh environments. Although Panerai’s new wall clock was born in the era when the wall clock was retired, it is still an exquisite practical tool. Its unique brand clock face echoes the classic design of Panerai watches.
