PAM00183 RADIOMIR BLACK SEAL − 45 MM

IN THE 1930S, THE  MEN IN THE ITALIAN ROYAL NAVY'S GAMMA GROUP, carried out their manoeuvres astride human torpedoes,  also known as "pigs" or indeed, "black seals". It is in fact the 1940s style of Officine Panerai's Radiomir that is enhanced in the Radiomir Black Seal - 45 mm model, brought up to date by the use of  sporty steel.
The Officine Panerai Radiomir, with fine lugs connecting the cushion case to the leather strap, has been renewed and is presented in a new, 45-mm diameter version. An elegant and contemporary design give a classic feel to a model with advanced technical characteristics.
The case of the Officine Panerai Radiomir Black Seal - 45 mm guarantees water-resistance to a depth of 100 metres and is made of AISI 316L steel, a code that indicates a steel alloy making the watch resistant to both shock and the elements. The dial has the typical set-up with hour markers alternating with Arabic numerals at 3, 6 and 12 o'clock, with small seconds at 9 o'clock. The in-depth updating of the past has led to the re-discovery of a curious dial set-up, which consists of an Officine Panerai effect achieved by superimposing two different plates: a black upper plate with perforated numerals and hour markers and a lower plate with a thin coat of Super-LumiNova®, ensuring that the dial is visible even in the dark.

STEEL

AISI 316L 1.4435 stainless steel is Officine Panerai’s material par excellence since it is highly resistant to corrosion and is hypoallergenic, making it ideal for contact with the skin.  
The Panerai watches created for the Italian Navy were made of austenitic stainless steel, a reliable material that was also resistant to the extreme environmental conditions in which the commandos operated. AISI 316L, a specification of the American Iron and Steel Institute, is an austenitic stainless steel alloy with a chromium content of 16–18%, 11–14% nickel and 2–3% molybdenum.
Officine Panerai uses the low-carbon variant of this alloy: the lower carbon content of the steel improves its welding qualities where the metal’s thickness is 6mm or less. The excellent technical qualities of this material make it an essential element of every new Officine Panerai collection.

 


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.
