For 2015, Panerai has a few interesting new watches, but my favorite is the Panerai Radiomir Firenze 3 Days Acciaio 47mm aka PAM00604 replica watches UK. This is really a watch for collectors, and Panerai has made especially sure that the PAM604 very much fits into Panerai lore, being available for sale exclusively in the brand’s flagship boutique store in Florence, Italy, or Firenze in Italian – the city where the Panerai brand started. Hence the name of the watch “Radiomir Firenze.”
Visually, what makes the Panerai Radiomir Firenze 3 Days Acciaio PAM604 unique is the lovely engraving all over the case and crown. This is really where the artistic value of the watch shines – but more on that in a moment. The Panerai Radiomir Firenze 3 Days Acciaio PAM604 really begins with the brand’s seminal case and dial design from the mid 1930s that it produced for timepieces in collaboration with Rolex. To this day, the Radiomir case is incredibly attractive, and personally, still my favorite Panerai case offering.
The gold-toned hands, matching the tan color lume, sandwiched between the black dial planes makes for an extremely classic look. Especially when the dial is wonderfully symmetrical with just the hour and minute hands. This is the dress equivalent of a sports watch. Panerai even uses their plexiglass crystal versus sapphire – which, while more delicate, is traditional, and does add a certain warmth absent from the pure clarity of sapphire crystals.
Even though the Panerai Radiomir limited edition fake watches case is 47mm wide, it does not wear as large as one might expect. This is mostly because of the bar-style lugs which do not really jut out (as they do on the Radiomir 1940 case style). That means the lug-to-lug length on the watch isn’t dramatically more than the case width. This, in addition to the flat caseback makes for an extremely comfortable fit on the wrist when it comes to the Radiomir 47mm case (which is water resistant to 100 meters).
Inside the watch is one of Panerai’s first in-house movements known as the calibre P.3000. Manually wound, this 3Hz frequency manually would movement has a power reserve of three days (72 hours). With just the time displayed in hours and minutes, the dial of the Panerai Radiomir Firenze 3 Days Acciaio PAM604 is about as simple as you can expect – and with that simplicity comes a large degree of elegance. The movement is also very nicely designed and finished being visible through the sapphire crystal caseback window on the rear of the watch.
The full name of the PAM604 is Panerai Radiomir Firenze 3 Days Acciaio. For those who aren’t familiar with Italian, “acciaio” simply translates into steel – which is the case material. I really don’t know why this term needed to be added to the name of the watch, but perhaps there is a reason I am not familiar with – though it does seem a bit unnecessary.
