Panerai Radiomir 1940

1940, a significant milestone in the history of the Radiomir

In 1940, changes were made to the Radiomir. For instance, the wire loop attachments were replaced with sturdier horn-shaped lugs, integral to the case. In addition, the sandwich dial construction, now synonymous with the brand, first appeared. This dial consists of two layers, one superimposed on the other. The lower luminescent layer being visible via apertures cut into the upper layer which provides highly legible hour makers. The cushion-shaped case of the 1938 models was set aside in preference for a more robust case design with flatter edges. The crown was also updated in the interest of robustness.

 

Radiomir, the legend lives on

Today, Panerai is owned by the Swiss luxury giant, Richemont. The watches are now made in Neuchâtel, an area steeped in Swiss watchmaking tradition, but still retain Italian design prowess.

Whilst Radiomir, the radioactive luminescent material is no longer used, the name continues to grace the dial of some incredible timepieces. Officine Panerai references its rich history with elements of its early models still being seen on various models within today’s collection.

The luminescence of the modern-day Radiomir remains sublime, delivering magnificent legibility, irrespective of the prevailing hour.
