The equilibrium, which is held in place by a really sturdy looking bridge, seems somewhat small for the motion but then again, that is probably only because the motion’s so big; at 15 3/4 lignes, or just about 35.7 mm, it is a pocket — observe rather than a wristwatch grade (unless you’re in the bigger-than-average-wristwatch business, which Panerai Replica manifestly is). In general, we think that it’s an impressive piece of work — we’ve used the word hardy and sturdiness is very much the takeaway belief one has of the P.5000. Interestingly enough, incidentally, the P.5000 has a free-sprung, flexible mass equilibrium, which is a very nice touch, especially at this price point — if you look carefully at what looks like the regulator you’ll see that it’s really not a ruler, but a stud carrier (that is, the carrier to the stud to which the outer terminal of the balance spring is attached). The screws holding the equilibrium bridge set up run via threaded collars onto the bridge and can be used to correct end-shake (the quantity of vertical “play” between the tips of the balance staff as well as the endstones of this shock-jewel assembly. While the motion doesn’t possess the spectacular cosmetics of some other in-house motions, its tidy, neater look is much more appropriate than if Panerai Replica had dressed it up with perfunctory Geneva stripes (and perfunctory is pretty much the only kind of Geneva stripes you receive at the price).
