In Depth

The new Radiomir 3 Days GMT Oro Rosso – 47mm is a Special Edition of great elegance which combines the deep blue of the dial and the alligator strap with the warm glow of the case made of 5Npt red gold. The case has the classic cushion shape characteristic of the first watch created by Officine Panerai for the commandos of the Royal Italian Navy in 1936 and, like the historic models, it is 47 mm in diameter; the dial, with its sandwich structure and satiné soleil finish, is enlivened by the seconds counter at 9 o’clock and the date window at 3 o’clock. The P.3001/10 calibre, entirely developed and made by the Officine Panerai manufacture in Neuchâtel, can be admired through the wide window in the back. This hand-wound calibre has the GMT function, so useful for travellers who need a timepiece which can indicate the time in two different time zones, and a power reserve of three days, with the power reserve indicator in the back. In the new Radiomir the bridges and two spring barrels of the calibre are skeletonised, all edges being chamfered and polished. The skeletonisation reveals the fine details of the finish, such as the perlage of the plate, the wheelwork and the gilded engraving; also the operation of the watch can be seen, for example the winding and unwinding of the springs in the barrels while the watch is being wound or running. The new Radiomir 3 Days GMT Oro Rosso – 47mm (PAM00598) is a Special Edition created in 200 units and it has been tested for water-resistance to 5 bar (~50 metres).

Materials

Red Gold

Red gold is an alloy composed of gold, copper and other metals, and due to its technical properties and elegant appearance, it is an ideal material for use in fine watchmaking. The red gold used by Officine Panerai is a special alloy, different from standard red gold, called 5Npt.

Panerai 5Npt has a percentage of copper giving the material an intense red hue that is particularly elegant and sophisticated. Platinum is another fundamental element of the Panerai red gold alloy, as it helps to prevent the metal from oxidising. 5Npt has another important property: it has a high mechanical resistance than standard pink and yellow gold. It is the perfect material for Panerai high-end watches.

Maintenance

Panerai watches are produced to very high standards of quality. It is worth remembering that the mechanical parts run 24 hours a day when used, so the watch must undergo regular maintenance to ensure long life and good operation.

WATER-RESISTANCE 

Have watch checked periodically for water-resistance by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre and renovate it every two years with regular servicing, or whenever the watch has to be opened. The restoration of water-resistance necessarily involves replacing the seals in order to ensure the maximum water resistance and protection. Where the watch is used in underwater sports activities, it is recommended that it should be checked every year before the underwater activities begin.  

THE MOVEMENT 

Have the movement of watch checked periodically by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre in order to preserve its perfect operation. If the watch has a tendency to gain or lose time to a significant degree, the movement may need to be overhauled. The movements are designed to withstand temperature variations between -10°C and +60°C (14°F and 140°F). Outside this range of temperatures, operational variations exceeding those set out in the specifications of the movement may be noticed. In addition, there is a risk that the lubricants contained in the movement may deteriorate, resulting in damage to some of its parts.  

CLEANING THE EXTERIOR

To keep the exterior in perfect condition, we recommend washing Panerai watch with soap and warm water, using a soft brush. After this operation, and also after immersion in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the watch with fresh water. All Panerai watches can be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth. 

THE STRAP

 Panerai straps must be washed in warm water and left to dry. It is important not to dry them on a hot surface or expose them to direct sunlight, because the rapid evaporation of the water could damage their shape and quality. After each immersion in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the strap with fresh water. It is recommended that the strap and the buckle should be replaced by an Authorized Distributor or a Panerai Service Centre, in order to avoid any problems caused by incorrect replacement. Only an Authorized Distributor or Panerai Service Centre can guarantee the use of genuine Panerai straps, properly designed to fit the dimensions of the case and manufactured according to the quality standards of the brand. All alligator leather used by Officine Panerai comes from farms in Louisiana, USA. Officine Panerai’s suppliers have committed to the highest standard of responsibility and have given their assurance that such farms in Louisiana contribute to the stable growth of wild alligators, thus protecting this endangered species. Panerai does not use leather coming from endangered species taken from the wild.
