Every detail of the new RADIOMIR 1940 3-day power reserve watch describes Panerai’s watch tradition carefully crafted for the Italian Royal Navy officers. As for the matte black ceramic case with the extremely simple dial design, this new watch of the RADIOMIR 1940 series has an outstanding contemporary look.
The new Radiomir 1940 3 Days Ceramica watch inherits the Panerai tradition, draws subtle inspiration from history, and displays the superb watchmaking technology of Panerai Neuchatel in detail. The combination of haute horology and modern sports watch making techniques creates another classic of the brand. The new Radiomir 1940 case is converted from zirconia powder to black ceramic, and then matte, showing a high-tech appearance with outstanding aesthetics. Compared with the steel case of other Panerai watches, the ceramic case is harder, lighter, scratch-resistant, corrosion-resistant, and resistant to high temperatures.
The black dial uses a ‘sandwich’ dial structure to make the watch even more extraordinary. The stick and dot hour design is simple and clear, and easy to read. The dial’s design is modern and modern, and it complements the elegant hazel Super-LumiNova® with hour markers and the embossed pattern of Silura a Lenta Corsa. The new watch is contemporary in style, while the dial follows the original design developed by Panerai for Italian naval officers in the late 1930s, which is of historical significance.
The P.3000 manual winding movement, entirely developed by Panerai Watch Factory in Neuchâtel, is visible through the large polished sapphire crystal case back. The diameter of the movement is 16½ centimeters, which is a unique feature of the watch at that time. The wide frosted bridge covers most of the gear components, and is equipped with a large-scale balance wheel with a diameter of 13.2 mm and two hairspring barrels, providing a 3-day power reserve. The movement is also equipped with a quick adjustment of the hour hand function, which allows the hour hand to be adjusted directly forward and backward without affecting the operation of the minute hand or watch.
The new Radiomir 1940 3 Days Ceramica (PAM00577) 3 day power reserve ceramic watch has a water resistance of 10 bar (equivalent water depth of about 100 meters). It is equipped with an unprocessed brown primary leather strap and a trapezoidal buckle. Colored stitching trim. The buckle, like the case back, is cast from anti-sensitive titanium and coated with DLC (Diamond-Crystal-Crystal Carbon), which adheres to the color of the watch.
