Panerai has recently announced its two versions of a special edition, Radiomir that pays tribute to a watch close to the heart of Panerai’s legacy.
The Radiomir edition created its first ever watch with two new versions – Radiomir Logo (PAM 754) and Radiomir Black Seal Logo (PAM 753), which are new examples of one of the Officine Penari’s great vocations. The first watch created by Officine Panerai is now available in two new versions using the manufacture P.6000 Calbire, hand –wound with a power reserve of three days.
In the two new models of the Radiomir, the cushion case of polished steel, with its slender wire loop strap restaurants, reflects that of the first watches supplied by Panerai to the commandos of the Royal Italian Navu and it has a steel back. The perfectly circular black dial harmonizes perfectly with the rounded design of the characteristic Panerai font of the figures, lightly engraved on the dial the better to hold the luminous material, which makes them perfectly visible even in the dark.
The OP logo is at six o’clock; with its twin arrows pointing up to the sky and down to the depths of the sea, while in the Radiomir Black seal logo – the small seconds counter is at 9 o’clock.
The new Radiomir Logo and Radiomir black seal logo use the P.6000 calibre, hand-wound with a power reserve of three days. Designed and made in the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, the P.6000 calibre is 151/2 lignes in diameter and its balance wheel- securely fixed in place by a gridge with twin supports, oscillates at a frequency of 21,6000 vibrations per hour. For greater precision when adjusting the time, the caliber also has the device, which stops the balance wheel as soon as the winding crown is pulled out.
Both the new models, the Radiomir Logo 3 Days Acciaio (PAM00753) and the Radiomir Black Seal Logo 3 Days Acciaio (PAM00754), are water-resistant to 10 bar – a depth of about 100 metres – and each is supplied with a leather strap with contrasting beige sewing, fastened by a trapezoid steel buckle.
