The black sandwich dial of the PANERAI Radiomir Black Seal Acciaio PAM 183 is coated in a steel casing. The shaping is based on the historic Radiomir of 1936, and is distinguished by purism. Following the tradition of the former divers’ watch, the PANERAI PAM 183 is very readable in darkness too. The movement is still wound up manually in keeping with the movement delivered in 1936 by the company Montres Rolex SA calibre 618.
The model PANERAI Radiomir Black Seal Acciaio PAM 183 allows you a glimpse into the past. At the same time, the timeless, high-quality charisma will fascinate you. The 45mm wide case and the bezel, the detachable adjoining loop and the winding buttons are made of AISI 316L steel. This enduring, hypoallergenic alloy has proven its worth in many uses underwater under extreme conditions.
Anti-glare sapphire glass 1.9mm thick protects the clock face. At the bottom of the casing, it reveals a glimpse of the exclusive calibre OP XI with swan-neck fine adjustment, as well as the Glucydur® balance and a power reserve of 56 hours. The construction method of the historic Rolex clockwork, which was the underlying inspiration for this model with its calibre 618, is clearly visible.
Classically and exclusively, the combination of luminous steel and deep black catches the observer’s eye. The model’s sporty character is attained especially by the narrowly shaped curves of the pillow-like casing. The typical clock face design, consisting of two superimposed discs, continues this impression. The Arabic numerals and helpful markers are brilliantly clear, enflamed by the upper, broken-through disc.
In addition, it carries the name Radiomir Black Seal and the lettering of the watch manufacturer PANERAI. The coating of the lower disc, with Super-LumiNova®, clearly brings out the strong parallels to the historic model. The small seconds in the form of an auxiliary dial are located at 9 o’clock. The 27/22mm mounted calf leather strap in a gold-brown shade with white seams and a wide, polished pin buckle harmoniously complement the overall classy picture.
