Panerai launches Radiomir 8 Days GMT Oro Rosso - 45mm
February 11, 2014: Officine Panerai has launched the Radiomir 8 Days GMT Oro Rosso, a special edition, which pays tribute to the long history of brand by reinterpreting the classic Radiomir with sophisticated and elegant details.
The new Radiomir 8 Days GMT Oro Rosso has a polished red gold case which encloses a dial derived from a rare model of the late 1930s. The design of the dial is minimalist with simple linear and dot hour markers. The various functions can be read directly: the date at 3 o’clock; the linear indication of the power reserve; and the small seconds counter with a.m./p.m. indicator for the second time zone. The dial is deep blue with a satiné soleil finish, elegantly set off by the warm tone of the 5Npt red gold, an alloy that has a higher percentage of copper than yellow or pink gold and a proportion of platinum. The same alloy, which provides greater toughness and strength, is used for the adjustable clasp closing the blue alligator strap.
The open back reveals the technical and aesthetic details of the hand-wound P.2002/10 calibre which has a power reserve of eight days. Like all Panerai watches, the new Radiomir is water-resistant and tested to five atmospheres (approx 50 metres).
The new Radiomir 8 Days GMT Oro Rosso (PAM00538) is produced in 300 pieces which are sold exclusively in Panerai boutiques throughout the world.
