Panerai Radiomir Oro Rosso replica watch - front Panerai developed its Radiomir case in 1940 to meet the rugged needs of the Italian naval commandos who wore its watches. This year, the company brings back that original case for a series of modern Radiomir replica watches in its Historic Collection, among them this week’s Watch to Watch, the Panerai Radiomir Oro Rosso replica watch.
The original Panerai Radiomir Oro Rosso replica watches — named after the luminous material patented by Panerai to make its dials legible in the dark — debuted in 1936, with a case whose lugs were made of strong, bent pieces of steel wire welded to the case. For the 1940 upgrade, Panerai created a new case with much larger and more solid lugs, milled from the same block of steel as the case. The new version of the Panerai Radiomir Oro Rosso replica watch also had a more secure system for attaching the leather strap to the watch: where it had previously been necessary to sew the leather around the wire attachments, the new construction added small holes in the lugs into which small tubes could be fitted and inserted through loops at the ends of the strap. The revisions to the Radiomir replica watch case also included softer edges on the cushion-shaped curves, a larger and more cylindrical winding crown, and a thicker overall profile
The modern case of the PAM00522 Panerai Radiomir Oro Rosso replica watch is slightly thinner but still large and made of polished 18k 5N rose gold, an alloy with a high percentage of copper and a bit of platinum. It has a polished bezel, a screw-down crown with the historical Panerai “OP” emblem, and 1.4-mm-thick corundum sapphire crystals in the front and back, treated with nonreflective coating.
The dark brown dial, with small seconds subdial at 9 o’clock and date window at 3 0’clock, is constructed in Panerai’s “sandwich” style, comprised of two superimposed plates with a layer of luminous material between them, a Panerai innovation dating to the late 1930s. The movement, visible through the exhibition caseback of the Panerai Radiomir Oro Rosso replica watch , achieves its lengthy power reserve by means of two spring barrels in a series.
The Panerai Radiomir Oro Rosso replica watch comes on a brown alligator leather strap with a polished rose-gold buckle. Panerai also offers a version in a stainless steel case and other Panerai Radiomir Oro Rosso replica watch in 42-mm cases in steel or rose gold.
