With the Radiomir 1940, OFFICINE PANERAI is not just paying homage to the Florentine diving watches of the Italian navy “MARINA MILITARE”. With the further development of PAN 657, the watch makers were able to realise the most important information in the newly developed P.4000 calibre. Making this diving watch a safe investment.
PANERAI is presenting Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio with reference PAM00657. The special feature here, is also the particularly easy to read dial with Arabic numbers and hands in beige. The P.4001 calibre used here has a second time zone (GMT). Date at 3 o’clock position, small second and day and night display (AM/PM) t the 9 o’clock position.
Since the 1930s, the OFFICINE PANERAI brand has specialised in the development of diving watches. As the first manufacturer, PANERAI presented a 200m watertight diving watch for the Italian navy even before WW2. Even back then, the easy to read luminous dials were a decisive advantage, which was protected as a military secret in the years before the war. Today, the strong lighting power of the dial pleases the observer in particularly low light conditions.
Compatible with the dial, PANERAI is delivering the Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio with a dark brown calfskin strap and beige seams with the name “Assolutamente”. This wonderful combination of the case made of polished steel, the black dial and the dark brown leather strap turn PAM 657 into a timeless classic. The best thing about this version is that OFFICINE PANERAI was able to unify all really important function in the flat clockwork in this timepiece.
An important criterion for all PANERAI models are the best materials and functionality. In the Radiomir 1940 presented here, a 45mm case surrounds a perfect clockwork. The P.4001 calibre with a height of just 5.04mm is very flat. The case is based on a further development of the Radiomir 1936. In this version, PAN 657 is guaranteed to be watertight up to a depth of 100m. The fixed band attachments are studded. In doing so, the band on the watch can be replaced quickly and easily. In doing so, PANERAI Radiomir 1940 3 Days GMT Automatic Acciaio is the best timepiece for all moments of life.
