Panerai Radiomir's were previously available in much larger cases, now with the help of a brand new in house movement, the brand has introduced the Radiomir PAM 336 watch. This 42 mm pink gold timepiece is an attractive design that is both smaller and thinner than the previous Radiomir versions, which has been made possible by the new hand-wound mechanical movement P.999 caliber that was designed, developed and produced completely by Panerai.
The Panerai Radiomir P.999 42 MM Pink Gold watch will only be available in a numbered limited edition of 500 pieces.The P.999 caliber itself measures just 27.4 mm in diameter by 3.4 mm thick, making it smaller than other calibers that the brand has previously released. Made up from 154 components which includes 19-jewel, this single-barrel movement allows for a 60-hour power reserve. The balance wheel which beats at 21,600 alternations per hour has been fitted with adjusting screws and an Incabloc anti-shock device protection. And while we won't be seeing this new movement in many of the new Panerai watches, it has been reserved for some of the Panerai Historic Collection models.
While most of Panerai previous watches have cases that range in size from 44 to 47 mm the new Radiomir PAM 336 new Radiomir watch has a beautiful pink gold case that measures in at just 42 mm. Keeping the shape of classic Panerai cases it is simply thinner and lighter compared to the previous Radiomir models. The pink gold case has a satin finish while the bezel has been polished. The dial is chocolate brown with the standard Radiomir layout which has the small seconds dial at the 9 o'clock position. The face of the watch is protected by an anti-scratch and anti-glare sapphire crystal. The PAM 336 is completed by a brown alligator leather strap which has been fitted with a pink gold pin buckle.
