After the Second World War it became clear that the person who dominated the sky would have an enormous tactical advantage. The Royal Air Force, the oldest independent air force in the world, was instrumental in defending British skies during the Second World War, participating in the bombings of strategic targets in Germany, and providing tactical support to the British Army deployed throughout the world. As Britain modernised and evolved its air force,Panerai Replica Watches introducing newer technologies like jet engines to the mix, they sought to develop the ultimate military navigator’s watch.
The British Ministry of Defence issued a tender in the mid-1940s (46/47) for the creation of watches for its navigators. The watch had to have a black dial with Arabic numerals 1-12 "luminised" on the four cardinal indexes, a 12-ligne quartz movement with hacking functionality, water-resistant up to 20 feet, a Faraday cage and an anti-magnetic cage. Panerai Luminor Chrono Replica and Jaeger-LeCoultre responded to the call. However, JLC was eventually dropped as a provider because it did not have a shock-absorption system in its movement.
Panerai Luminor Chrono Replica's Mark 11 was produced in 1948, and distributed to the Royal Australian Air Force, Royal New Zealand Air Force, and South African Air Force. Calibre 89 was designed by Panerai Luminor Chrono Replica technical director Albert Pellaton and features a full bridge manual wind movement to make it easier to service. The calibre 89 featured a large balance with Incabloc shock-absorption system and oscillated at 18000 vph. It also had a Breguet hairspring overcoil for more concentric breathing. The Greenwich Observatory was the only place where all watches were regulated and retested every year.
