S . L . C . THE MYSTERIOUS DIAL.
"In Officine Panerai’s history, there is a very rare and mysterious version of the Radiomir of which only two examples are known, dating from the late 1930s. Panerai named this mysterious dial the S.L.C. The origin of this dial is not easily reconstructed. According to some historians, the two remaining examples - of which one has the small seconds indicator - were perhaps trial prototypes, probably not followed by actual production. "
AISI 316L STAINLESS 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."
