Officine Panerai PAM00573

New Radiomir 1940 3 days Automatic watches

by Guillaume V. - 07/10/2014

During the Watches & Wonders exhibition, the Officine Panerai manufacture unveiled 2 new timepieces: the Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic Acciaio (PAM00572) and the Oro Rosso (PAM00573).

They are powered by the brand new P.4000 caliber and feature a movement-integrated micro rotor - they are consequently very thin. In addition, the 2 series mounted barrels enable both PAM00572 and PAM00573 to offer at least 3-day power reserve.

The 45 mm diameter case reminds of the models created by Panerai around 1940. Logs are shaped in the case metal piece for a very comfortable result. As usual with Panerai, the dial is classical and very easy to read. It comprises 2 superimposed slabs between which is inserted a luminescent substance. Its indexes and numerals are carved in the upper slab so that the said substance glows in the dark. Similarly to 1940s models, the seconds are displayed in a meter located at 9 o’clock.

The PAM00572 is waterproof up to 100 meters whereas the PAM00573 is only waterproof up to 50 meters. Both feature a beautiful alligator strap - one black, the other brown.
