Panerai is continuing its legacy of producing heritage timepieces with the latest release of their Radiomir 3 Days Acciaio watches.
The two special edition watches will be made to commemorate a piece which hails from the 1930s with a unique12-sided bezel design and the words ‘Offcine Panerai – Brevettato’ engraved on the bezel and caseback.
Fans of Panerai will also notice that the signature design of their military watches with the crown shield are notably absent here. Instead, this particular Radiomir design was designated for presenting to the authorities of the Royal Italian Navy to evaluate new instruments for underwater missions.
The watches will come in either a black dial (PAM00685) or original shaded brown dial (PAM00687) to reflect its origins. The case meanwhile is made from AISI 316L stainless steel and is cut in the same classic 47mm size as the original Panerai watch. Inside the case is an in-house hand-wound mechanical known as the P.3000 calibre.
The watch shows off hours and minutes and affords a power reserve of 72 hours. Water resistance of the piece is a sufficient 30 metres which is further complemented by a removable wire loop strap which makes switching the leather strap easier for more robust materials.
