The Radiomir is the first watch designed by Officine Panerai as a prototype in 1936 at the request of the Royal Italian Navy, which wanted to be supplied with “a special luminous watch for divers”
"One of the main characteristics of the Radiomir is its dial, of which several versions exist. The first to appear, as early as 1936, was the so-called “California” dial, with its distinctive alternation of Roman and Arabic numerals, bar markers and a railway track minute circle. But given the need to increase its visibility so that the commandos could use the watch in the most complete darkness, Panerai made the dial more luminous. "
Presented within a 47mm AISI 316L stainless steel case, this high performance timepiece is powered by a P.3000 caliber movement that optimizes structure and accuracy with a 3-day power reserve.
This Mark 1 example of the PAM00424 featuring the, now discontinued, date window, is in an overall good conditions. Light scratches are visible on the casing due to the polished steel finish, a polish would restore the watch to a like new condition.
This watch is supplied fitted to an aftermarket leather strap with its original buckle. The watch includes its original booklet as well as warranty card, dated 2013. It is supplied in a Panerai travel box.
