Why We Love it

Panerai means different things to different collectors, but wherever you stand on the spectrum, there's no denying that these things have presence!

Although by no means diminutive, Panerai watches — with their excellent "cushion" case design that has become synonymous with the brand — do have a way of wearing smaller than advertised. 

This PAM992 Radiomir 8 Days from the 2020s is a prime example: Housed in a 45mm stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal and a signed crown, it wears surprisingly comfortably despite its large profile. Featuring a luminous matte black dial with a matching blued-steel handset, and a sub-seconds display at 9 o’clock, it’s powered by Panerai’s hand-wound Calibre P.5000 movement with an incredible 8 days of power reserve, and comes paired to a signed brown leather strap with a signed stainless steel pin buckle.

In excellent condition and accompanied by its factory goodies, this PAM992 constitutes an excellent entry point into the brand’s in-house offerings. Hefty and military-inspired, it’s a no-nonsense watch that gets the job done. You know what we’re gonna say:

Don’t pass this one by!

Overall Condition

The case is in outstanding, as-new condition overall showing only faint wear from gentle use. Luminous matte black dial is in as-new condition with matching blued-steel handset. Signed crown Sapphire exhibition caseback.

Brand Story

+
Giovanni Panerai founded his eponymous business in Florence in 1860 and quickly began making strides in the development of military and timekeeping equipment. In 1916, Panerai developed a radium/zinc sulfide powder mixture which he encased in glass vessels, the invention of which would form the basis of the “Radiomir” line of watches so beloved by collectors today.

In the 1930s and 1940s, Panerai supplied various units of the Italian Navy — including the Decima Mas, which carried out special forces-type raids on Allied shipping using small submersibles during the Second World War — with watches. These oversized timepieces, which were some of the world’s first dedicated military watches, featured stainless steel cases and Cortebert-made movements produced for Rolex. (Their distinctive, glowing “sandwich” dials were yet another Panerai invention, and continue to feature heavily in the brand’s modern catalog.)

Following the War, Panerai developed a new, tritium-based luminescent technology it dubbed “Luminor,” which replaced the radium-based Radiomir. A new case design featuring a bridge and locking mechanism to increase water resistance accompanied this luminous compound, resulting in one of the most iconic case designs still in production today.

In 1972, following the death of Guido Panerai’s son, Guiseppe, the firm was taken over by engineer Dino Zei, its name changed to Officine Panerai S.r.L. The company, which had never before produced its military designs for the civilian market, reissued three of them in 1993 to much acclaim. Panerai was subsequently purchased by the Vendome Group — the precursor to the modern Richemont Group — in 1997, and remains within its portfolio of luxury brands today. Its production of both Luminor and Radiomir-inspired designs firmly reestablished, Panerai continues to introduce new models that include complicated, in-house movements and unique case materials, such as its patented Carbotech.
