If you still count yourself among the faithful, you may add the PAM01389 for your own collection for the purchase price of $11,000. Just don’t forget, cool guys don’t look back at the explosion.Special variant watches that are only sold in theaters or made in limited amounts are a great way for watch brands to acquire fans and watch lovers excited. Exclusivity is frequently a big deciding factor in regards to a watch purchase, and there is no better way of producing exclusivity than by publishing a watch in limited numbers and notably in a colorway or design that collectors yearn for. Few watch brands are as proficient at this match as Panerai is, having had a series of hits with past special edition watches. There is the legendary Luminor 1950 PAM 127 “Fiddy” from 2002; and more lately, the Radiomir 1940 Marina Militare or PAM 587 from 2014. Rather, they are different versions of existing versions. But what makes them noteworthy is their deep green dials. This is not the first time that Panerai got collectors excited using a simple color change. This past year, they did exactly the same with four special edition watches which came with metallic blue dials. Now, let’s get in these new watches.We begin with the PAM 735 Panerai Radiomir 8 Days Titanio, which is based on the PAM 346. This comes in the classic 45mm-wide Radiomir cushion case with identifying wire lugs, and as its name clearly states, it’s made from titanium.
Panerai is continuing its streak of gently coloured dials – last year’s was a quartet in metallic blue – with three watches sporting dark, military green dials, the very same colour scheme first seen on the Luminor Bronzo limited editions. Representing each of Panerai’s case styles, the trio share the same sandwich dial construction that’s something of a Panerai Watches Price In Ksa Replica signature.
The dials are made up of two plates: an upper disc featuring cut-outs for the hour markers, while the lower disc is painted with Super-Luminova visible through the cut-outs.
The Radiomir 8 Days Titanio PAM 735 is titanium, 45mm in diameter and equipped with the hand-wound P.2002 movement. It has three barrels and an eight day power reserve, along with a power reserve indicator on the back. Additionally, it has a convenient zero-reset hack seconds that allows for precise time setting. Additionally, the hour hand is independently adjustable in one-hour steps, allowing for easy change of time zones when travelling.
Slightly more affordable by virtue of the simpler movement and steel is the Radiomir 1940 3 Days Acciaio PAM 736. This is 47mm in diameter and features the P.3000 movement, the basic in-house calibre found in most entry-level, 47mm Panerai watches. It has a date display and a three-day power reserve.
And the top of the line is the Luminor 1950 Chrono Monopulsante 8 Days GMT Titanio PAM 737 that’s 44mm in diameter. Somewhat of a rarity since Panerai introduces fewer complicated chronographs now, focusing instead on simpler, affordable watches, the PAM 737 a single-button chronograph with second time zone hand.
It boasts an eight-day power reserve shown on a linear indicator at six o’clock that was once a Panerai specialty. And it has a day and night display at nine o’clock.
The movement inside is the P.2004, which is hand-wound and features a vertical clutch and column wheel.
