Panerai – Radiomir 1940 10 Days Gmt Automatic Oro Rosso – 45mm (PAM 00659)
Introducing the Panerai – Radiomir 1940 10 Days Gmt Automatic Oro Rosso – 45mm (PAM 00659)
2016 is all about blue be it on dials (including hands and markers) or straps. The supposedly “cold” colour is ever poetic as it brings to mind azure waves in a calm sea and the blue sky on a summer’s day. Panerai has splashed it over the dial of the Radiomir 1940 10 Days Gmt Automatic Oro Rosso – 45mm (PAM 00659), exclusively available from its stores worldwide.
The sunburst satin-finish dial glows with hints of gold that add warmth to the ocean hue: hour rim with Arabic numerals and markers, hands (hours, minutes and second time zone), small seconds in an AM/PM indicator (at 9), date (at 3) and linear power reserve indicator (at 6).
The 45mm rose gold case houses the self-winding P.2003/10 calibre which is the first skeleton movement to be made by Panerai. Its three barrels fuel a 240-hour power reserve.
