  • Catalogue Essay

    The Radiomir Composite Marina Militare 8 Giorni ref. PAM00339 was released in SIHH and Baselworld 2010. Reputedly known as the no-frills timepiece with rich military heritage, the brand continuous technological inventiveness is still rigorous in every way. First of its kind, the present example uses Composite, a synthetic ceramic result of an electrochemical ceramisation process of aluminum. Boasting toughness harder than steel and titanium, the material wears with exceptional lightness and comfort. Wooing attention in an attractive dark chocolate brown matte finish appearance, the warm hue of the sandwiched luminous dial complements the design into a brilliant combo. Offered by its original owner in pristine unworn condition, the present example numbered 144 out of a limited edition of 1,500 not only comes in complete accessories, it’s unique aesthetics certainly breaks the boundary of the conventional black appearance for collectors of style.

  • 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.
