Presented at Watches & Wonders 2023 in Geneva, the Radiomir Quaranta Goldtech™ is declined in a case made of polished Goldtech™ (PAM01026), combined with a white satiné sunray dial and a matte brown alligator strap. Panerai Goldtech™ is a gold material first developed by Panerai, distinguished by a combination of platinum and copper, which gives it a deep red appearance.
Paying homage to Panerai's origins, the Radiomir Quaranta is the contemporary interpretation of the Maison's first watch.
Refined yet impressive, it features elements linked to its origins and is aimed at aficionados of the brand who identify with its history and savoir-faire. This new collection manages to combine the design of the instrument watch with the discreet elegance dictated by the finishes and the warm tone of Goldtech™.
THE "FORTY" CASE
“Quaranta” denotes the 40mm case size that defines the essence of the collection, a contemporary adaptation of the 47mm size of the original edition of the Radiomir made some eight decades ago. At 10,15mm thick, the watch case is the thinnest in the entire Panerai range, boasting a versatile silhouette that sits well on any type of wrist.
The Radiomir Quaranta Goldtech™ features a conical crown, a distinctive element of the Radiomir collection, and combined with a matte alligator strap, it expresses an understated and relaxed luxury that adapts to modern lifestyles. Every detail embodies the contemporary spirit of the watch: the iconic cushion-shaped case, the white sandwich dial with satiné soleil finish and indexes and numerals only at 12 and 6 o'clock, which reflects the rays of light with the movement of the wrist, while the beige Super Luminova® glows green in the dark.
Among the technical details, the P.900 caliber stands out, a new generation automatic movement with a thickness of 4,2 mm, the first of its size to combine a date function with a 3-day power reserve.
The aspect that, alas, leaves a little dumbfounded is the impermeability up to 3 bar (~30 meters). Panerai assures that it will soon reach 5 bar (~50 meters), but it is an aspect that should be much higher on a Panerai watch and which represents the Achilles heel of this almost perfect watch in terms of size and design.
