The contemporary and most versatile of Radiomir interpretations, Radiomir Quaranta, now comes in Panerai Goldtech material, expressing the spirit of its original precision through its continuing innovative pursuits. Debuting at Watches & Wonders 2023 in Geneva, the Radiomir Quaranta Goldtech is set in a polished Goldtech case (PAM01026), matched with a white sun-brushed dial and a matt brown alligator strap. Panerai GoldtechTM is a gold material developed for the first time by Panerai including a combination of platinum and copper donating an intense red appearance. A faithful homage to where it all began, Radiomir Quaranta, is the contemporary interpretation of the Maison’s first-ever watch bringing the look of the legendary navy divers of the 1940s to discerning watch lovers of the modern century. Pared down yet commanding in presence, Radiomir Quaranta features elements distinctly linked to its origins, appealing to connoisseurs who identify with the brand’s history and expertise. Iconic details and precision are reinvented in a collection expressing the discreet Italian elegance of the Maison’s roots, where culture meets its esteemed technical instrument-making expertise.
Quaranta, forty in Italian, stands for the 40mm case size that defines the collection’s essence – a contemporary adaptation of the 47mm size of the original Radiomir edition made some eight decades ago. Measuring 10.15mm in thickness, the watch’s case is the slimmest in the entire Panerai’s range, proposing a versatile silhouette for all genders and occasions. Radiomir Quaranta Goldtech features a cone-shaped crown – a distinguishing element of the Radiomir collection – and paired with its matte alligator strap, exudes understated and relaxed luxury to match modern lifestyles.
Every detail embodies the contemporary spirit of the watch; the iconic cushion-shaped case, the white sun-brushed sandwich dial features indexes and numerals only at twelve and six o’clock and reflects light rays with the movement of the wearer, while the beige Super- Luminova® illuminates in green in the dark. The strap is interchangeable from Panerai’s extensive range of colors, and finishes, including calf for a casual look and shiny alligator versions in a multitude of bright shades for women. Available for purchase separately, the wide selections allow wearers to style the Radiomir Quaranta GoldtechTM for every mood and occasion.
