We are proud to present this stylish Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days Titanium watch for sale.
In 1935, the Royal Italian Navy enlisted Panerai and other distinguished watchmakers to create a timepiece that could withstand the harshest conditions, ensuring precise timekeeping for the elite frogman commandos of the First Submarine Group Command. The challenge was to craft a watch capable of maintaining accuracy under extreme circumstances, all while providing exceptional legibility even in the depths of the ocean. In response, Panerai unveiled the prototype in 1936, aptly named the Radiomir after the luminescent substance illuminating its hands and indices. This remarkable timepiece not only met but exceeded all expectations during rigorous testing, solidifying its place in history as a triumph of precision engineering and functionality.
This version of the Radiomir, reference PAM00619 was introduced in 2014 and is part of a limited series of only 1000 watches. It comes set in a 45mm titanium cushion-shaped case fitted with a polished bezel and the more traditional screwdown crown based on the early models before Panerai’s patented crown-lock system was invented in 1955, ensuring the 10atm (100m/330ft) water resistance. The tobacco brown sandwich dial features cut-out luminous hour markers and third Arab numeral indexes, as well as matching hands and a running seconds subdial at 9 o'clock. These details are protected by a domed sapphire crystal glass and driven by the automatic calibre P.4000 movement which can be viewed through the sapphire crystal exhibition caseback. Lastly, it is completed by a Scamosciato brown vintage styled leather strap with beige stitching and titanium pin buckle.
Originally purchased in September 2015 and in mint condition, this Radiomir comes with its original inner & outer boxes, swing tag, barcode stickers, instruction booklet and international warranty booklet.
This limited edition is sold with our 12-month warranty from the date of sale.
