Panerai Radiomir PAM 336 in 42mm body
Previously available in much larger cases, the new Panerai Radiomir PAM 336 watch has become both smaller and thinner. Thank the P.999 caliber for that!
The new in-house P.999 hand-wound movement is only 3.4 mm thick and just 12 lignes in diameter, which roughly translates into 27.07 mm. Built of 154 parts 19 jewels and featuring Glucydur balance wheel, the movement beats at 21,600, which is traditional for Panerai watches.
A more compact movement allowed for a more compact body, which is now just 42 millimeters wide.
Crafted from 18-carat pink gold case, the satin-finished cushion-shaped case looks especially elegant in contrast with its perfectly polished round bezel.
Of course, like other Panerai watches, the new timekeeper still preserves that overwhelming scent of masculine presence.
On the other hand, the watch won’t look on a skinny hand of an average metrosexual. You will need a big hairy wrist for this kind of gadget.
The watch’s dial features traditional for the Italian brand dial layout with a well-known and much-adored layer-cake structure, when a layer of SuperLuminova is sandwiched between inner and outer pieces of metal with big, bold Arabic numerals and stick-shaped hour markers milled in the upper sheet.
The long hour and minute hands, as well as the small subsidiary seconds hand, which is positioned at its usual place at 9 o’clock, is, too, covered with green Superluminova, so good nighttime legibility is guaranteed.
All in all, it is yet another piece of brilliant design from the Italian-based company.
