Radiomir 1940 3 Days Acciaio - 47mm
THE EGIZIANO PICCOLO
"The Egiziano Piccolo Among the clients of Panerai who asked for a Radiomir watch was the Egyptian Navy, which for the first time in 1954 turned to the Florentine watchmaker for the supply of a special series of diver’s watches designed for frogmen. It was this request which gave rise to reference 6154 also known as “Egiziano Piccolo” – to distinguish it from its famous successor, the Egiziano of 1956."
THE REFERENCE 6154
Originally no more than 30 or 40 examples of the Egiziano Piccolo were produced, making it one of the most sought-after vintage Panerai watches, and the new Radiomir 1940 3 Days is a faithful re-creation of it, updated to meet the current standards of high quality sports watchmaking. The distinctive, original element of the model is the brown dial, its colour inspired by that of the vintage watches which have undergone the discolouring effect caused by the luminous material.
AISI 316L STAINLESS STEEL
"AISI 316L 1.4435 stainless steel is Officine Panerai’s material par excellence since it is highly resistant to corrosion and is hypoallergenic, making it ideal for contact with the skin. The Panerai watches created for the Italian Navy were made of austenitic stainless steel, a reliable material that was also resistant to the extreme environmental conditions in which the commandos operated."
