Haute horlogerie manufacture Panerai of Neuchâtel is introducing their Winter 2012-2013 timepieces, two of which are the PAM 421 Radiomir 3 Days GMT Oro Rosso and PAM 439 Radiomir Oro Rosso. Both watches feature a unique and elegant red gold case and hand-wound mechanical movement. The chronographs are available in a variety of case sizes.
Also featured in the winter collection are three new Special Edition Radiomir 10 Days GMT-45mm watches; the classic Radiomir case is combined with the elegance and exclusivity of platinum for the PAM 495, white gold for the PAM 496, and red gold for the PAM 497. Designed and produced in-house, the watches are technologically incredibly sophisticated with their P.2003 movement.
Two more watches round out the season’s collection of timepieces: the PAM 504 Radiomir Composite 3 Days – 47mm and the PAM 505 Radiomir Composite Black Seal 3 Days Automatic – 45mm. Both highlight the use of company’s Panerai Composite, a material that is lightweight yet incredibly hard. This composite is combined with the iconic Radiomir cushion case from the Art Deco era of the 1930’s. Again, every aspect of these chronographs was designed and produced in-house at the Neuchâtel manufacture.
Panerai is a haute Italian watchmaker founded in 1860 but manufactures their product in Switzerland. Panerai watches assisted frogmen of the Decima Flottiglia MAS during World War II, and notable lines of chronographs produced by the company are Radiomir and Luminor.
