Officine Panerai has created this model by combining the case design of the Radiomir 1940 with the technology of the P.2004 Manufacture movement, presented for the first time in the P.2004/10 version with skeletonised bridges and barrels. The Radiomir 1940 case evokes a period in Panerai’s history when the Radiomir case, cushion-shaped with wire loop strap attachments, was evolving into the Luminor 1950 case, with its integral lugs and the bridge device with locking lever protecting the winding crown. Relaunched by Officine Panerai in 2012, the Radiomir 1940 case has strap attachments and proportions similar to the Luminor 1950; it also has the cusped case shape, but it does not have the device protecting the crown. The result is a case that is strong and functional, embodying great simplicity and sophisticated elegance. 45mm in diameter and made in white gold, the case has a cylindrical winding crown with the Officine Panerai logo in relief. The single push-piece at eight o’clock controls all the chronometer functions. With a black dial, also with satiné soleil finish, but with minimalist graphics, without figures and with bar and dot hour markers. The straps are of brown alligator with an adjustable buckle made of the same material as the case. The model is water resistant to 5 BAR (~50 metres).
