"THE RADIOMIR, ONE OF THE ICONS OF INTERNATIONAL HAUTE HORLOGERIE."
"RADIOMIR MODELS represents a tribute to the history of Panerai and to the watch which has constituted a milestone in the history of professional diver’s watchmaking. The characteristics of modern Radiomir watches are descended from the prototype created in 1936 to equip the commandos of the Royal Italian Navy: The cushion case, the slender wire strap attachments, the conical crown and the simple dial reduced to essentials to increase legibility even in conditions of poor light. "
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.
