Reporting live from the SIHH 2016 and wishing we had more time in between appointments to upload all the amazing novelties that have been unveiled this year. Therefore, bear with us and be patient as there's way much more comment coming up during the week and next weeks. This time we bring you our hands-on live pictures of the new Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic PAM 655. This watch takes its inspiration directly from the 1940s model but in an absolutely contemporary style. Subtle, light, distinguished by its essential lines and maximum clarity of reading and setting, it is a sports watch adapted to every situation. For the first time in a watch in the Radiomir 1940 collection, the dial of the new Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic is offered in white.
Its graphic design maximizes the dial’s clarity and legibility, with the large black figures corresponding to the hour markers and the small seconds dial at nine o’clock, a characteristic of Panerai watches of the 1940s. The cushion case, in AISI 316L stainless steel with polished finish, measures 42 mm in diameter and only 10.93 mm in thickness.
On the back of the Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic is a round window with a sapphire crystal through which the automatic P.4000 movement, entirely made in the Officine Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, can be admired.
The structure of the calibre is particularly rugged and reliable, with a wide brushed-finish plate covering the greater part of the mechanism, and the full balance bridge with twin supports which carries the balance, oscillating at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour.
In person, this watch is a true stunner and wears simply beautifully.
