  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2014, Radiomir 3 Days GMT Oro Rosso is a modern iteration of the prototype, in which the simple dial, the cushion-shaped case and the slender wire strap attachments are kept to retain the prototypical vintage elegance that makes the Radiomir series so timeless and special.

    The perfect embodiment of sophisticated technology and tasteful design, the present lot is a special edition watch of magnificent splendor. The manual caliber incorporates the GMT function to display an additional time zone. The present watch also has a three day power reserve, with power reserve indicator seen through the transparent case back.

    Aesthetically speaking, Radiomir 3 Days GMT Oro Rosso is breathtakingly good-looking. The lustrous navy-blue dial, the dark sophisticated alligator strap and the sumptuous tint of pink gold together form a fantastical caprice of grand colors. The pink gold used by Panerai is a special alloy called 5Npt which is different from standard pink gold. The 5Npt pink gold, which has a percentage of copper and platinum, gives the watch a lovely red tint that is particularly stylish and charismatic.

  • Artist Biography


    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.
