Choosing a Panerai implies experiencing a colossal index, this comprises various versions, complications and a differed value range. It can go from a gigantic chronograph (the Mare Nostrum PAM00603 ), to a tourbillon watch with GMT work (the Panerai Radiomir 1940 Tourbillon GMT Oro Rosso ) or too cool releases with a vintage Minerva development (the Panerai Radiomir Platino and Oro Rosso or the Panerai Radiomir 1940 Chronograph ). But let’s be honest, with regards to Panerai, the cleaner, the cooler – and the new Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days Ceramica 48mm PAM00577, with its vintage roused looks, unadulterated SLC dial and fired case, it is undoubtedly cool.
One of the most wonderful ongoing Panerai watches is, as far as I might be concerned, the Radiomir SLC 3 Days Acciaio PAM00425. This version of the old style Radiomir (the first, with the circle lash connection) comes with an exceptionally smooth dial (obviously with a sandwich development, which means 2 layers) that shows moderate cudgel and spots as files. Moreover, its dial includes the SLC (Silura a Lente Corse, the human torpedo), a component that is suggestive of the rich past of Panerai – when Officine was conveying watches to the Italian Navy. We picked here to just discuss the PAM00425 (that is as yet in the assortment) yet additionally note that this equivalent plan was utilized in 2011 in the PAM00373, a 750-piece restricted release that would now be able to arrive at 30.000 Euros or more on the second-hand market.
It’s this equivalent smooth, clean dial that we discovered back in the Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days Ceramica, a.k.a the PAM00577. Nonetheless, if the face is the equivalent, the case had been improved in a more present day style, both concerning the plan and the material. As you’ve effectively saw from the name and from the first photographs, this new release comes with the 48mm Radiomir 1940 case, which means the momentary shape, that has the focal piece of a Radiomir, with the carries of a Luminor however without the crown insurance of the last mentioned. Less vintage than an old style Radiomir, which it is yet in addition cleaner and simpler to wear than a Luminor. It feels plan shrewd substantially more current. Same goes for the material utilized, as the case currently comes in matt-dark artistic, a lightweight, scratch safe composite. When mixing this case with this shading, we get a very cool watch, that looks lively and contemporary, without being ostentatious.
Just like the PAM00425, the Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days Ceramica comes with the SLC dial. It just highlights 2 cudgel hands (hours and minutes). It shares the regular Panerai sandwich development, meaning a dark plate with openings and a lower plate covered with crème hued glowing material. This dial resembles the remainder of the watch very straightforward yet it has a traditional Panerai style, with clean batons and spots and – valid statement for bad-to-the-bone authorities – a alleviation picture of the SLC (Silura a Lenta Corsa) at 6.
The Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days Ceramica PAM00577 highlights one of the in-house developments, the Caliber P3000. This huge engine can be seen through the sapphire caseback which is colored, to give a more obscure look that matches with the case – and comes with an intentionally modern look, because of the straight brushed completion of the scaffolds (that are anyway chamfered). It highlights 2 barrels for 3 days of force hold and a canny speedy setting of the hours by one-hour increases – all together not to imperil timekeeping.
