BRANDS OF SIHH 2016: Panerai Radiomir 1940 PAM 00655


Panerai will bring a white dial to the Radiomir 1940 collection for the first time at SIHH with its 3 Days Automatic, a 42mm steel watch with off-centre micro rotor and a fairly sunny disposition.

The white dial and tan Super-Luminova hour markers and hands create a watch made for sunnier climes than the UK in the midst of a grey and wet winter which is plus point, but on the negative side it’s a busy dial with minute marker lines, hour marker lume dots, numerals of varying sizes and that small seconds at the nine o’clock, which has never been the most symmetrical solution.

The PAM 00655 features an automatic P.4000 movement with hacking seconds but if it were not for a neatly decorated micro-rotor, there would hardly be any reason to use the exhibition caseback as the majority of the movement is enclosed behind a linear-brushed plate and the balance held in place by a frankly industrial-looking full bridge.
