Panerai revelas two new timepieces from Radiomir family
The Radiomir Logo and the Radiomir Black Seal Logo are new examples of one of Officine Panerai’s great vocations: making watches inspired by models which have been part of the history of the watchmaker, while incorporating technical content that is consistent with the highest standards of contemporary high quality watchmaking.
In the two new models of the Radiomir, the cushion case of polished steel, with its slender wire loop strap attachments, reflects that of the f i r s t watches supplied by Panerai to the commandos of the Royal Italian Navy, and it has a steel back. The perfectly circular black dial harmonises 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 only – 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 15½ lignes in diameter and its balance wheel – securely fixed in place by a bridge with twin supports – oscillates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour. For greater precision
when adjusting the time, the calibre 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.
