In Depth

A new watch celebrates the remarkable association between Officine Panerai and its most loyal supporters: the Radiomir 1940 3 Days – 47mm “Paneristi Forever”, a Special Edition with the Radiomir 1940 case in DLC-coated steel with the inscription Paneristi Forever engraved on the back. It is dedicated to all enthusiasts of the brand, and in particular to those who belong to the community which for 13 years has interacted every day on the site It was in September 2000 that admirers of Panerai watches first found the ideal platform for expressing and sharing their own passion on the site, which had recently been created by an English enthusiast. Since then, the online community has gathered many thousands of connoisseurs who have spontaneously created one of the most remarkable cults for a watch brand, with millions of visits to the site each month to share stories, photographs and information, and to ask and respond to questions. The forum hosted on the site is moderated by a group of coordinators who are completely independent of the brand, and it attracts enthusiasts from every corner of the globe. The Radiomir 1940 case has the same form as the historic one that was transitional between the Radiomir and the Luminor, and it has the same diameter of 47 mm that was adopted for the first Panerai prototype in 1936. For the first time, the Radiomir 1940 case appears with a matt black finish, produced by a DLC (Diamond-Like-Carbon) coating on the steel structure. The black dial is of sandwich construction with minimalist graphics. On it are the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock and, in relief at 6 o’clock, the image of a Siluro a Lenta Corsa, the human torpedo on which the commandos of the Italian Navy carried out their epic attacks with Panerai instruments on their wrists. Toughness, reliability and maximum legibility are ensured by compliance with the historic standards of the brand. The Radiomir 1940 3 Days – 47mm “Paneristi Forever” (PAM00532) is water-resistant to 10 BAR (~100 metres) and it is supplied with a strap made of natural, untreated leather.


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.  


Have your watch checked periodically for water-resistance by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre and restore it every two years with regular servicing, or whenever the watch has to be opened. Restoring the watch’s water-resistance necessarily involves replacing the seals so as to ensure the maximum water-resistance and security. Where the watch is used in underwater sports activities, it is recommended that it should be checked every year before the season of underwater activities begins.  


Have the movement of your watch checked periodically by an Authorized Panerai Service Centre so as to maintain its perfect operation. If the watch tends to gain or lose time significantly, 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.  



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


Panerai straps must be washed in warm water and left to dry. It is important not to dry them on a hot surface or to expose them to direct sunlight, because the rapid evaporation of the water could damage their shape and quality. After each bathe in the sea or a swimming pool, carefully rinse the strap with clean water. The leather strap is made from leather which has not been chemically treated, which gives it a very natural, soft feel. As a result of its characteristics, the colour and form of the leather tend to change with the passage of time while maintaining all of its beauty. 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 skins coming from fragile or endangered species taken from the wild.
