  • Catalogue Essay

    The Radiomir was first witnessed as a prototype of 10 pieces in 1936 developed for the Italian Navy. Since its introduction, the Radiomir has witnessed broader horizons than just being a military watch. Still staying true to its initial case design and dial layout, the Radiomir has encased traditional chronometer movements to complicated movements in its modern days. In 2011, Panerai introduced the PAM00373 as a limited edition of 300 pieces in platinum.

    The limited edition piece features an in-house movement cal. P.3000 with a 3-day power reserve. The present example is numbered 139 out of a limited edition of 300 pieces and is offered in excellent overall condition and further charmed by the full set of accessories.

  • 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.
