Although this model features a variety of useful functions, somehow the design team has overcome the trap of overcrowding the dial. It’s very airy and easy to read, perhaps because of the symmetrical arrangement of the functions at the level of the dark brown dial. The big 12 and 6 o`clock Arabic numerals draw an imaginary vertical line on the dial. At 3 o`clock is the date window, at 9 o`clock is positioned the small seconds sub-dial with a 24 hour GMT indicator and above 6 o`clock you will find the power reserve indicator that shows the energy left on a scale counting from one to eight days.
Due to the centered GMT hand and the GMT sub-dial, the proud owner of this model can be aware of two time zones simultaneously and also read the AM/PM indicator.
It`s all accommodated in a 44mm polished rose gold case and it`s powered by Calibre P.2002, a manual-winding in-house developed movement. The trademark Panerai crown protection is also made from 18k oro rosso, just like the case and the bezel.
Besides the above mentioned functions, on the rich brown dial the numerals, the hour markers and the hands are luminous and they are protected by corundum sapphire crystal. It also features anti reflecting coating.
The 8-days power reserve is possible due to the use of three mainspring barrels.
Designed for a man that understands and appreciates high-performance, this watch also meets the requirements in terms of style, as It looks classy and natural on the wrist.
The gold used by the brand is a special type of gold that has a certain percentage of hue that makes it look shinny yet refined and elegant. It is also more resistant than regular pink gold and contributes to an important achievement of Panerai watches: outstanding resistance.
Through the transparent case back each watch enthusiast can observe the in-house mechanism.
The 18k polished rose gold buckle comes with a brown alligator strap. You even have a interchangeable wristlet and a steel screwdriver to change the bracelet yourself.
This watch is a luxury product and has all the advantages that a luxury watch can bring: high-end technology, best materials and unique design. It has a variety of functions professionally displayed on a gorgeous dial that offers itself to the eye in a subtle manner and assures a perfect legibility in any condition. It doesn’t screams for attention, yet, by the elegance and the visible quality of the finishes, it succeeds to stand out.
With every new product, Panerai makes admirable efforts to innovate and to keep the consumer excitement level up. And keeping the history alive through improved and better versions of old models is what makes them the masters of watchmaking innovation. The original Radiomir keeps its crown as the starting point of great models, such as this stunning one that enriches the line and satisfies the taste of every buyer.
