Panerai Unveils Radiomir 3 Days Platino - 47 mm Watch

Feb 10, 2011
Officine Panerai introduces its new Radiomir 3 Days Platino - 47 mm watch. The novelty is inspired by the timepiece created by the brand at the end of the 1930s. The 1930s model featured a unique dial design and just two pieces of it are known. It hadnt been revived by the brand till the present day.

The new Panerai watch features a brown dial shielded by a Plexiglas crystal. Instead of the characteristic large numerals displayed by the classic Panerai dial, it is completed with dot markers and alternating bar-shaped double or single hour markers.

For perfect legibility, the dial is of a sandwich type. It is built from two superimposed discs. The upper disc is perforated, forming the hour markers.

Panerai specialists are not sure about the origin of the dial as the brands archive was destroyed by the Florence flood in 1966. They believe that the two examples left were created as test samples.

The 47 mm Radiomir case is sculptured from platinum. It is 100-meter water-resistant. The case-back is fitted with a large sapphire crystal window that allows to drop a glance at the movement. The wire loop strap attachments are removable, so it is really easy to change the strap.

The heart of new Panerai watch is the P.3000 calibre. The movement was designed and manufactured independently in the brands workshops. Operating at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour, the 160-part, 21-jewel movement offers a 3-day power-reserve as it incorporates two spring barrels.

The Panerai Radiomir 3 Days Platino - 47 mm watch is secured to the wearers wrist on a brown alligator strap fitted with a large white gold buckle. The timepiece is limited to 199 pieces.
