Panerai celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Paneristi.com online community, a singular and authentic presence on the watchmaking landscape, with a new Radiomir model with a strong identity.
On the 20th anniversary of the founding of the authoritative web community Paneristi.com, a recognized point of reference for collectors and enthusiasts the world over, Panerai will release a special edition model, Radiomir Venti 45 mm (PAM02020), that available in a limited edition of only 1020 pieces.
The new Radiomir Venti – 45 mm is the result of an intense creative process involving close collaboration between the Laboratorio di Idee, Panerai’s technical and creative team, and the Paneristi. Both timepiece and tribute, it celebrates a group of loyal connoisseurs and admirers whose engraved insignia the watch bears on both its dial and caseback.
The model reinterprets with a contemporary sensibility the expressive vocabulary of the first Radiomir, which dates to the second half of the 1930s and is a quintessential Italian design that retains its appeal after almost a century. Elements of the revamped model include beige Super-LumiNovaTM and a brown dial with a finish that simulates the effects of time on original specimens that have survived to this day.
The Radiomir Venti 45 mm also comes with sword-shaped gold color hands, a typical element of the original models. Meanwhile, the case material comes with AISI 316L steel that finished with a matte. There’s also patina on the bezel and case and “VENTI” engraving between the lugs at 6 o’clock pay further tribute to the Paneristi.com community.
The Radiomir Venti 45 mm conforms to the mechanical specifications of models dating back to the dawn of the brand. It features a manually-wound mechanical movement, entirely conceived, designed and developed by the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel.
Resilient and stable thanks to the presence of a bridge with dual supports, Caliber P.6000 is equipped with a device that stops the balance wheel when the crown is pulled out and features a three-day power reserve provided by a single barrel.
