New models Tuesday, October 16th 2012
The precious elegance of red gold marries perfectly with the classic form of the Radiomir case in the Radiomir 3 Days GMT Oro Rosso, the new model created by Officine Panerai using the hand-wound P.3001 manufacture movement.
The warm tone of the red gold (5Npt) used to make the large case 47 mm in diameter is achieved through the use of a special alloy which contains a higher percentage of copper than usual and a quantity of platinum, which helps to prevent the metal oxidising. The warm tone of the gold creates a harmonious, sophisticated ensemble with the brown of the classic Panerai dial, with its sandwich construction ensuring the highest legibility, the characteristic large markers in ecru Super-LumiNova®, the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock and the date window.
The power reserve of three days is displayed by an indicator visible on the back through a sapphire crystal which enables the movement, entirely created by Officine Panerai, to be seen. The manufacture calibre used in the Radiomir 3 Days GMT Oro Rosso is the P.3001, which also has date and second time zone functions, the device for zeroing the seconds and the mechanism for the rapid adjustment of the hour hand, enabling it to move in jumps of one hour at a time without interfering with the movement of the minute hand or the running of the watch.
The Radiomir 3 Days GMT Oro Rosso is supplied with a brown alligator strap and is identified by the reference PAM00421. ■
