As I wrote in my SIHH introduction post earlier today, Mr Bonati told me that he does read paneristi.com from time to time, and that he is always interested in what the paneristi have to say.

I'd like to think that the introduction of the new Panerai Radiomir S.L.C. 3 Days really shows that OP are listening. Lots of people were saying that the PAM373 was a winner at last year's SIHH, but if only it was available in steel (the 373 has a platinum case). Well, the PAM449 must be OP's answer.

I have to admit that when I saw the first press photos, I really did like this watch - but I wasn't sure about the blue hands. Seeing a watch in person can make you change your mind in no time at all. I really do love this watch and its blue hands look perfect on it.

The PAM449 is a Special Edition and 500 units will be produced.

Note that the watch in the photos is still a prototype so the final production version may be somewhat different. If you have a good look at the photos, you can easily spot some things that the final version won't have.

On to the photos...



The words Radiomir Panerai are engraved in the dial, the above photo clearly shows how 3d this engraving is. Very cool



As you can see, the Luminova is ecru. Same as that of e.g. the PAM372. I was told that "ecru" is actually the preferred term to use when referring to this color. Further info can be found here on wikipedia.org.









The SIHH documentation contains this information: To emphasise the strong historical connotations of these two Special Editions, the word VINTAGE
is engraved between the strap attachments at 6 oclock
. As you can see in the photos, the prototype doesn't have this detail yet.





The crown has the embossed OP logo.



The SIHH prototype has PAM00426 engraved where the strap is attached at the 12 o'clock position. This is obviously another detail that the final production version will not have. I'm not sure what will be there instead.



You can find the SIHH specifications here:
http://www.network54.com/Forum/353391/t ... AL+EDITION+***

The first official OP photos of the watch from the SIHH press kit can be found here:
http://www.network54.com/Forum/353391/t ... +Days+47mm

For your reference, here are some photos of the PAM373 that was introduced last year.

The 373 has a brownish dial whereas that of the 449 is black.
Other differences are that 373 has gold hands, a platinum case and it comes with an alligator strap.
Both the 373 and and the 449 have the in-house P.3000 movement.







Thanks for looking,

....breath-taking from every angle. The dial is absolutely perfect with it's simplicity features that still manage to scream Panerai. Hopefully nothing much will change from the proto to production? Either way, it's a winner! And I can't wait to see it in person.

Thanks for the excellent photos, killer! Even though you have a way of making the ugliest watch look spectacular, that isn't the case with this one.


Cheers & HAGWE!!

I'd like to think that the introduction of the new Panerai Radiomir S.L.C. 3 Days really shows that OP are listening. Lots of people were saying that the PAM373 was a winner at last year's SIHH, but if only it was available in steel (the 373 has a platinum case). Well, the PAM449 must be OP's answer.

I have to admit that when I saw the first press photos, I really did like this watch - but I wasn't sure about the blue hands. Seeing a watch in person can make you change your mind in no time at all. I really do love this watch and its blue hands look perfect on it.

The PAM449 is a Special Edition and 500 units will be produced.

Note that the watch in the photos is still a prototype so the final production version may be somewhat different. If you have a good look at the photos, you can easily spot some things that the final version won't have.

On to the photos...



The words Radiomir Panerai are engraved in the dial, the above photo clearly shows how 3d this engraving is. Very cool



As you can see, the Luminova is ecru. Same as that of e.g. the PAM372. I was told that "ecru" is actually the preferred term to use when referring to this color. Further info can be found here on wikipedia.org.









The SIHH documentation contains this information: To emphasise the strong historical connotations of these two Special Editions, the word VINTAGE
is engraved between the strap attachments at 6 oclock
. As you can see in the photos, the prototype doesn't have this detail yet.





The crown has the embossed OP logo.



The SIHH prototype has PAM00426 engraved where the strap is attached at the 12 o'clock position. This is obviously another detail that the final production version will not have. I'm not sure what will be there instead.



You can find the SIHH specifications here:
http://www.network54.com/Forum/353391/t ... AL+EDITION+***

The first official OP photos of the watch from the SIHH press kit can be found here:
http://www.network54.com/Forum/353391/t ... +Days+47mm

For your reference, here are some photos of the PAM373 that was introduced last year.

The 373 has a brownish dial whereas that of the 449 is black.
Other differences are that 373 has gold hands, a platinum case and it comes with an alligator strap.
Both the 373 and and the 449 have the in-house P.3000 movement.

can't wait to see your visual take on the 448.
i'm on the wait list at my AD for the 2012 Cali, but after seeing these, i might be regretting my decision.
also, as an aside, i'm secretly hoping that they leave the word "VINTAGE" off the final production pieces.

Please, the word VINTAGE is off, isn't it?

Vintage watch is a VINTAGE watch, why call vintage a new model? Free use of words, but I think this models would be much better without this "plus"

If a buyer buys the watch for its aesthetic not for historical resemblance, then "vintage" would mean nothing. If a buyer buys this watch because of its historical resemblance, still "vintage" would have nill value.

Fabulous pictures, Martin. Thank you as always for stunning work.

Mr. Bonati, if you're reading...Please don't put "Vintage" on the case. Please stick with the way you did the case for the 372 and 373. Put the case style number on one side and the model number on the other. That's so much more classic and timeless than a word like "vintage" being on the watch. I think if you took a poll of Panerai collectors, you'd get a 100% no vote on writing vintage on the watch. Otherwise it's perfect!

Thanks to OP for producing such a great piece and to Martin for making it come alive.

Great pictures,as usual.. The third option is the 425 which is not a special edition, and I assume much cheaper than the 373 (for sure!) and the 449, Anyone know price differences between the 425 and the 449?

Keep the pig off the dial of the 425 too!

I've already ordered one from my AD and I really hope this detail is left off - the preproduction piece at SIHH is PERFECT!!!
