  • Catalogue Essay

    The present Panerai Radiomir PAM00687 is numbered 364 of a limited edition of 1000 pieces. Featuring a notable ‘tropical’ dial, it has been fashioned to resemble the patina seen on vintage Panerai watches that have aged to perfection through the ravages of time. The Radiomir paint in the vintage watches emitted gamma rays, from the radioactive Radium, and transformed their originally black glaze into a graduated chocolate brown. Brevetatto, Italian for patented, is inscribed at 6’oclock of the bezel and refers to the design of the watch which adheres to a vintage aesthetic. Encased in a dodecagonal bezel, this is a direct reflection of the earlier Panerai prototype wristwatches produced in the 1930s.

    Consigned by its original owner, the present timepiece is offered with its full set of accessories and in “like-new” overall condition.

  • 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.
