Panerai PAM00575 description
Launched at Watches & Wonders 2015, the Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days Acciaio 42mm ref. PAM 575 features a red gold case of 42 mm and the new hand-wound caliber P.1000. It has a stainless steel sibling with the PAM 574.
With its timeless Panerai design, the Radiomir 1940 3 Days Oro Rosso - 42mm is a unique and immediately recognizable timepiece which combines history, contemporary high-end watchmaking, Italian design and Swiss manufacture. The black dial of the Radiomir 1940 3 Days Rosso– 42mm has large bar markers and figures with the typical Panerai sandwich structure invented at the end of the 1930s to maximise the visibility and legibility of the markings: two superimposed discs contain the luminous substance which shines through the holes in the upper one, which correspond to the dial markings. The sapphire crystal of the porthole on the back of the new Radiomir 1940 3 Days enables the construction and finish of the P.1000 Calibre, a new hand-wound movement with a power reserve of three days that perfectly suits the proportions of the Radiomir 1940 case, which is 42 mm in diameter, to be admired. This model is supplied with a black alligator strap. The case is water-resistant to 5 bar (a depth of about 50 metres).
It is assumed that the alloy for the gold used in this watch was changed to Panerai's prorietary 'Goldtech' somewhere in 2019.
