During the early 1940s, a new dial case was crafted in Florence, Italy, in order to meet the requirements of the commandos of Italian Navy. The case referred to as Radiomir, and officially patented by Panerai, was originally presented in 1936, with the thought to increase the dial readability. It paved the way for a series of innovation, with the collection featuring more solid and comfortable wrist-watch designs, keeping in mind the strap durability going hand in hand with the dial.

The Panerai PAM00512 from the Radiomir 1940 collection presents out its timepieces with Radiomir – the official patented luminous fill used by the brand to enhance the readability quotient on their dials in dim backgrounds.  A heavily polished steel bezel encapsulates a black dial with the official Panerai signatory logo, adding to the sophisticated looks of this watch. The black dial is engraved with luminous stick indexes and Arabic numerals as the hour markers of the watch. Silver toned sword arms with a luminous fill adorn the dial with a remarkable finish.
The Panerai personalized black alligator strap is customized to offer extra comfort to the wrist, as the wearer can easily wear and remove this watch using the trapezoidal polished steel buckle.

The Panerai PAM00512 Radiomir 1940 Acciaio features a small seconds’ sub dial located at the 9 o’ clock position of the dial. Its huge 60-hour power reserve is complemented by its hand wound mechanical movements beating at 21,600 alternations per hour. You can witness the charm of its inner movements through its see through Sapphire crystal case-back. With an impressive water resistivity of 100 meters, this timepiece is ideal for swimming and showering, as it stands unaffected with the accidental splashes of water. The screw-down winding crown calibrates the primary dial motion of its hour and minute arms. This iconic timepiece can be an ideal buy if you are looking for a luxury watch loaded with the contemporary technology of a sportive timepiece.


To meet the increasing demands of the Italian Navy Cammandos, The Panerai workshops in 1940 designed a new case, which was an improved version of the one they presented in 1936. It is today known today as the Radiomir, the term originated at that time because the dials of these cases were made of luminous material patented by Panerai. This material enabled the watch to be read even in pitch darkness.

The 1940 Radiomir Collection aesthetics can be traced back to the times when the watches were designed with characteristics like larger lugs and simple attachment of straps. The simplicity earlier provided for the leather straps to be easily replaced and even today the straps of most of the radio-mir watches are changeable. Although the cases of this collection are a thinner version of the ones originally used in 1940s, the watches remain anchored in the original range because of their classi-cism.

The Radiomir 1940 Collection features five watches, 1940 Acciaio, 1940 Oro Rosso, 1940 3 Days Automatic Oro Rosso, 1940 3 Days Automatic Acciaio and Radiomir 1940 3 days Oro Rosso. The mechanical used for the collection ranges from Panerai P.999, Panerai P.4000 and Panerai P.3000 calibre. A common feature present across all the watches of the 1940 Collection is the see-through sapphire crystal back. The seconds subdial is located at 9 o’ clock. Some of the watches like the Radiomir 1940 Oro Rosso makes use of 18 Ct Polished Red Gold Bezel, which is an alloy com-posed of gold, copper and other metals. The Alloy is widely used in making exquisite timepieces because of its advanced technical properties and elegant appearance. All the Watches are water re-sistant up to ten bars, except Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic Oro Rosso and Radiomir 1940 3 Days Oro Rosso. The dials have different diameters of 42 MM, 45 MM and 47 MM giving you a range of options to choose from. All the watches make use of leather Straps, which add a touch of classic masculinity to the watches.

Panerai had a rich and varied history being in charge of meeting the time keeping needs of the Italian Royal Navy in the 1930s. In the 1940s they devised a new case with a design making it more tenacious than the Radomir, a term after the luminous material patented by Panerai to make their dial more legible in poor light conditions. The Radiomir watch, of the 1930s was tough and its strap was attached via strong pieces of steel wire bent and welded into the case band. The Radiomir 1940 was made tougher, and was modified with large solid lugs, directly being shaped from the same block of steel as the case. It also had a new strap attachment system where the strap could easily be replaced instead of the older models where each strap was stitched onto the steel wire. The PAM00512 is reminiscent of the original Radiomir 1940. The case was redesigned to soften the iconic cushion shape and give it a sleeker look. The in-house P.999/calibre is housed in a 42mm AISI 316L polished stainless steel case with a large cylindrical winding crown. The black dial is completed by luminous Arabic numerals and hour markers along with a small seconds dial at 9 o'clock.
