RADIOMIR 1940, GREATNESS BEYOND TIME.
"The Radiomir 1940 is an evolution and also a substantial development of the first Radiomir series. In response to the very strict requirements expressed by the Royal Italian Navy, the watch was strengthened to become even more resistant under extreme conditions. The first change was the increase of the thickness of the case so that the lugs could be formed directly from the same steel block of the case. The wire loop strap attachments were replaced by an extremely solid monobloc construction. "
The gold used by Panerai is a special alloy, different from standard gold. Panerai goldtech 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 gold alloy, as it helps to prevent the metal from oxidising.
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.
