With SIHH fast approaching, Panerai has released a teaser video for its 2014 Chrono Collection.  Though we get a quick glimpse of the caseback, what is most intriguing is the day/date graphic for the beginning of SIHH, January 20.  Does this mean that the new 2014 Chrono Collection will feature a day/date complication?  If so, this complication would mean a  departure from previous models and makes this video quite the teaser.

A date complication fits easily on the tri-compax dial of the Luminor Chrono Daylight, but if a day/date is coming, will this mean a bi-compax dial?  Are we going to see the Panerai OP XII calibre, which is a modular chronograph calibre with a Valjoux 7753 base movement, or will we see a new in-house movement?  Hand wound like the P.2006?  Maybe an automatic like the P.9100 with flyback?  Given that the video names a collection, meaning more than one chronograph, our interest is piqued to see a range of watches.  Stay tuned.
