Panerai Reveals Radiomir Titanium 47 mm Watch

Dec 23, 2009
The Special Editions Collection of Officine Panerai welcomes a new innovative member - the Radiomir Titanium 47 mm watch. The elements of the watch have been inspired by the legendary watches that were born at the end of the 1930s and acquired by the Italian Navy.

The timepiece is available with a brown or black dial, limited to 50 and 100 pieces respectively.

The cushion-shaped case of the new Panerai watch, 47 mm in diameter, boasts 100-meter water-resistance. The timepiece has maintained the dimensions and aesthetic features of its predecessors, but stand out due to a number of details, including radical changes and innovative peculiarities.

Instead of stainless steel used for the original Radiomir watches, the case of the latest Radiomir is sculptured in Grade 2 titanium, the metal highly appreciated for its lightness and corrosion-resistance, as well as its hypo-allergenic qualities.

The screw case-back reveals a sapphire crystal window. The dial is shielded by a 1.9mm-thick sapphire crystal provided with anti-reflective treatment.

The crown, to be used for winding the timepiece and adjusting the hands, features the shape of a truncated cone also suggested by original Radiomir models. The screw-down crown demonstrates the historic logo of the brand.

Reflecting a well-maintained Panerai tradition, the dial is created with a sandwich construction, incorporating two superimposed plates provided with the luminous substance. The upper plate is cut with large Arabic numeral and baton-shaped hour markers.

The Panerai Radiomir Titanium 47 mm watch is animated by a manual-winding movement - the calibre OP XXVII, having 16 lignes in diameter. The movement is also associated with the historic Radiomir models. It is based on a Minerva movement. The 18-jewel movement, with a balance frequency of 18,000 alternations per hour, offers a 55-hour power reserve.

The Panerai watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, is presented on a Panerai personalized alligator leather strap equipped with an oversized brushed titanium buckle.
