  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2008, the Panerai Radiomir Titanium PAM322 is one of the most celebrated limited edition timepieces launched by the firm in recent times. Paying no less of a tribute to the classic military watches from the 1930s, the aesthetics remain very similar with a clean cut “tobacco” dial with small seconds at 9 o’clock. The oversized titanium case measuring 47mm in diameter is certainly a first for the model, providing the wearer with enhanced comfort on the wrist lighter than stainless steel while still retaining its oversized military flare.

    Powered by manual cal. OPXXVII, the base hails from the famous Miverva cal. 16-17, one of Switzerland’s top micro-manufacturers of high quality Swiss movements. Combining both technical excellence with traditional craftsmanship, the PAM322 is considered one of the modern greats from Panerai.

    The present example numbered 103 of a limited edition of 150 pieces is offered from the family of the original owner and is further presented in a well-preserved condition with its full set of accessories.

  • Artist Biography

    Panerai

    Italian • 1860

    Known for its robust designs and large case sizes, Officine Panerai was established in 1860 by Giovanni Panerai in Florence, Italy. Around 1900, Giovanni's grandson Guido Panerai took over, and Panerai became the supplier to the Regia Marina — the Royal Italian Navy. After supplying the navy with high-precision instruments for a number of years, Officine Panerai created Radiomir, a radium-based powder that gives luminosity to the dials of sighting instruments and devices. By 1936, the Royal Italian Navy approached Panerai again with the request to design a watch resistant to extreme underwater conditions. The watch they created became known as the "Radiomir".

    Panerai's watches made during the early twentieth century era were comprised of cases designed and manufactured by Rolex SA, with Cortébert, a Swiss manufacturer, supplying the majority of their movements. The most recognizable designs from the firm are the Radiomir and Luminor. To date, vintage models from the first half of the 1900s, such as the reference 3646 and 6152 models, remain the most desirable among collectors.
