The Radiomir 1940 10 Days GMT Automatic Oro Rosso 45 mm is an exclusive Special Edition where the beauty and simplicity of the case is combined with the P.2003/10 in-house movement.
The case of the watch is immediately recognisable by its lines of exemplary simplicity, a testimony to the purity of Italian design of the 1930s and 1940s, is made of red gold, and is 45 mm in diameter.
The brown dial has an elegant satiné soleil finish and an impeccable aesthetic balance which enables all the functions of the watch to be read immediately and clearly. The structure of the dial is the classic sandwich, invented by Panerai to provide the maximum visibility and legibility of its indications even in very low light conditions: two superimposed discs contain the luminous material which shines through the holes made in the upper disc, which correspond to the dial markings.
The brown dial is sun-brushed and showes the date at 3 o’clock, the 24-hour-indicator at 8 o’clock and a linear power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock. It is protected by a sapphire crystal formed of corundrum.
The automatic mechanical P.2003/10 calibre is executed entirely by Panerai. With a diameter of 31 mm and three spring barrels which give the watch a power reserve of ten days, the movement has 25 jewels and a balance spring which makes 28,800 vibrations per hour. The main functions are hours, minutes and small seconds, date and linear indication of the remaining power reserve.
The back of the watch is made from see-through sapphire crystal so the amazing movement can be observed while working.
The Radiomir 1940 10 Days Automatic is supplied with a brown alligator strap. The case is water-resistant to 5 bar – a depth of about 50 metres.
When you desire one of these gorgeous watches you’ll better be quick – there will only be made 150 units. The good news: In black as well, and that makes 300 in total.
