The Watch

Here we have a 2023 Panerai Radiomir Tre Giorni Blue Manual PAM01335, the Radiomir was the first watch model created by Officine Panerai, taking its inspiration from their creations from the 1940s. The characteristic 45mm cushion case is made of AISI 316L Patina steel, giving the steel a vintage aesthetic, and wire lugs are removable using a patent-pending design, the lug-to-lug length of 49mm and a case thickness of 14mm give the watch an impressive wrist presence. On the right side is a signed crown with deep knurling to help with the grip. The stepped smooth Patina Steel bezel holds a domed sapphire crystal above a Blue Fumé sandwich dial, large cut-out Arabic numerals at 12, 3, 6, and 9 with batons in between marking the hours showing through the lume underneath, and long blue sword hands are coated in luminance. Text is precisely applied with the Radiamir Panerai at 12 o’clock. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with deep engraving around its edge. On the inside is a manually wound Panerai Cal. P.6000, 19 jewels, 21,600 beats per hour, this in-house movement replaced the Unitas 6497 movement and was produced and developed at a factory in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. The watch comes paired on its original Panerai strap with a Panerai signed buckle, 2 additional high-quality aftermarket straps are provided, and the watch also comes with its Panerai presentation box, bezel protector, key ring and papers.


Personal Note

This Panerai Radiomir Tre Giorni PAM01335 is an absolute treat to wear at 45mm, as always with these large Radiomir cases, they are big but comfortable due to the super short lug to lug and the fact the lugs are a simple bar protruding from the case. The blue dial on this reference has a warm tone and a subtle texture, allowing it to be dynamic depending on the light, I am always a sucker for a good dial like this. If you are unsure of the size, do not hesitate to book an appointment and try it on for yourself!


The Brand

In 1860, Giovanni Panerai opened his watchmaker's shop in Florence; it wasn't only a shop and workshop but also served as the city's first watchmaking school. Officine Panerai was born. The shop later moved to its current location in the Palazzo Arcivescovile in Piazza San Giovanni, Italy, changing its name to "Orologeria Svizzera" at the beginning of the twentieth century. In 1916, Stemming from Marie and Pierre Curie’s 1898 discovery, Officine Panerai created Radiomir to meet the military needs of the Royal Italian Navy. This radium-based powder gives luminosity to the dials of sighting instruments. Reference to the name "Radiomir" is documented in the patent filed in France on 23 March 1916. The substance's properties are perfect for military applications with high visibility and the paint's excellent underwater adhesive qualities. In 1936, Panerai created the first prototypes of the model now known as "Radiomir" for the frogman commandos of the First Submarine Group Command of the Royal Italian Navy. The Navy's historical archives record that just ten prototypes were produced in 1936. It was during this time that a very unusual relationship between Rolex and Panerai was forged with the production of the Ref: 2533. The design comes from a 47mm Rolex Oyster pocket watch. That was turned on its side so that the crown would be now located at 3 o’clock. In 1949, Panerai introduced a new luminescence substance called Luminor, which was not only safer than radium-based Radiomir but also much more luminous. In 1955 Panerai launched the Luminor, a watch created for the Royal Italian Navy with its characteristic crown guard designed in the 1950s, invented by brother and sister Giuseppe and Maria Giuseppe Panerai. It wasn’t until 1993 that Panerai finally released the Luminor and Luminor Marina to the public. Today, Officine Panerai is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Richemont S.A Group, which includes Cartier, IWC, Montblanc, and Vacheron Constantin.
