Officine Panerai Adds Three Watches To Radiomir Collection

Officine Panerai is spoiling us this year! After the introduction of the Mare Nostrum Titanio PAM 615, the Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech and the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days Chrono Flyback Automatic Titanio, the Swiss wactchmaker has announced the release of three more timepieces, this time in the Radiomir collection.

Apparently aware of the buzz that would surround the incredibly bold designs we saw the brand present during SIHH 2015, Panerai decided to wait a couple of months to launch the new Radiomir collection. But if the new watches seem less innovative on the surface, they introduce a number of important inaugurations for Panerai.

For the first time, Panerai’s in-house P.5000 8 days hand-wound caliber makes an appearance in the Radiomir collection, in the PAM00609 Radiomir Black Seal 8 Days and the PAM00610 Radiomir 8 Days. The movement, first introduced in 2013, and exlucively seen in the Luminor collection until now, boasts an impressive 8 days power reserve.

Meanwhile, the Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic becomes the first titanium model in the family with a combination between a grade 2 caseband and a grade 5 titanium bezel and crown. Despite this contemporary fusion of materials, chosen to complement the chocolate brown dial, the appearance of the Radiomir 1940 remains otherwise classic, with a large 45mm cushion case and pure minimalistic lines.

If the new case material does not revolutionize the Radiomir collection, the movement inside might. The Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic houses caliber P.4000, the brand’s first automatic movement with a “decentralized oscillating weight.” The smaller, and decentralized rotor, means the thickness of the overall movement has been reduced significantly to 3.95mm. The Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic Titanio is priced at $10,700.
