RADIOMIR 1940 : MODERN DESIGN, TIMELESS ELEGANCE

"In about 1940, the Panerai workshops in Florence perfected a new case, designed to meet the increasing demands of the commandos of the Italian Navy. Officine Panerai is presentig today a modern collection endowned with the strength and fascination that only being a part of history can convey."
 
  • RADIOMIR 1940, GREATNESS BEYOND TIME.
"The Radiomir 1940 is an evolution and also a substantial development of the first Radiomir series. In response to the very strict requirements expressed by the Royal Italian Navy, the watch was strengthened to become even more resistant under extreme conditions. The first change was the increase of the thickness of the case so that the lugs could be formed directly from the same steel block of the case. The wire loop strap attachments were replaced by an extremely solid monobloc construction. "
 
  • AISI 316L STAINLESS STEEL
"AISI 316L 1.4435 stainless steel is Officine Panerai’s material par excellence since it is highly resistant to corrosion and is hypoallergenic, making it ideal for contact with the skin. The Panerai watches created for the Italian Navy were made of austenitic stainless steel, a reliable material that was also resistant to the extreme environmental conditions in which the commandos operated."
 
  • THE P1000 CALIBRE
The P.1000 is a new in-house hand-wound calibre with a power reserve of three days. The movement has the fundamental functions – hours, minutes and the seconds counter at 9 o’clock – and it is 12 lignes (26.8 mm) in diameter with an overall thickness of 3.85 mm. Consisting of 152 components and with 21 jewels, the P.1000 calibre is solid, strong and reliable, and it is immediately recognisable as a Panerai calibre from both the technical and aesthetic points of view.
 
To ensure maximum security and stability, the balance is held by a bridge with two supports, fixed by screws with threaded rings for micrometer adjustment of the height. The oscillation frequency is 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour). With the small seconds dial at 9 o’clock – another of the distinctive characteristics of many contemporary Panerai watches, directly descended from the historic models – the new movement also contains the device which stops the balance and zeroes the seconds hand (seconds reset) when setting the time, for perfect synchronization of the watch with the reference signal.
