PAM424 Radiomir California 3 Days

Case: 47mm AISI 316L polished steel
Movement: Hand-wound mechanical, Panerai P.3000 calibre, executed entirely by Panerai
Functions: hours, minutes, date
Water resistance: 100 metres
Crystal: Sapphire 2.8mm
Back: See-through sapphire crystal

First thought when I saw the SIHH documentation... "a date and a logo on a Cali dial?"... hmmmm
But having seen the watch in person, I have to say that it looks quite nice.



The dial appears brownish in some of the photos but it is black. I think the photo below shows its color best.



The gold "double pencil" hands look amazing in combination with the ecru Luminova







Look how the crystal "sticks out"



The Radiomir case appears a bit thicker than that of eg the 249. Probably because of the size of the P.3000 movement





Note that the production version will have the word California engraved on the inside of the case at the 12 o'clock position.
The prototype that was shown at SIHH doesn't have this.



You can find the SIHH specifications here:
http://www.network54.com/Forum/353391/t ... +Days+47mm++***

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

The 424 and 425 were introduced together in the SIHH documentation. Sadly I wasn't allowed to take pictures of the 425 because the prototype did not have the pig on the dial...

Thanks for looking

Did not think I would like the date but that does look OK in live pics. Would still prefer it with a plain dial (no date no logo)

Thanks for all the great pics Martin, love your photography man!

Excellent photos of course. But you hit the nail on the head with your description - "quite nice". That's what I call "damned with faint praise".....

If I had never see the 249 (let alone the 448), then maybe I would have liked it (MAYBE... We will never know).

But for me, this is a big NO!! - The logo doesn't work, and I just hate the date... Sorry.

Cheers!

Beautiful pictures (as always) from Martin, but it just highlights how inferior this piece is to the tributes to the original.
This is a classic example of how a few minor changes in design can completely alter the aesthetics of an otherwise beautiful piece.
To me, the date, logo, and gold hands each chip away at the gorgeous simplicity of the 249/448's look & feel.
Sorry to be a hater, but the only way I can see this piece being desirable is when Mr. Bonati & Co. decide to discontinue it within only a few years.

Except for that god AWFUL date. Completely ruins the whole thing for me. But I find the other elements to be quite attractive.

Also, I suspect that the first time the corner/edge of that high sapphire crystal gets mixed up with a door handle in anything but a cursory manner... you're going to have a very expensive disaster.

PAM424 Radiomir California 3 Days

Case: 47mm AISI 316L polished steel
Movement: Hand-wound mechanical, Panerai P.3000 calibre, executed entirely by Panerai
Functions: hours, minutes, date
Water resistance: 100 metres
Crystal: Sapphire 2.8mm
Back: See-through sapphire crystal

First thought when I saw the SIHH documentation... "a date and a logo on a Cali dial?"... hmmmm
But having seen the watch in person, I have to say that it looks quite nice.



The dial appears brownish in some of the photos but it is black. I think the photo below shows its color best.



The gold "double pencil" hands look amazing in combination with the ecru Luminova







Look how the crystal "sticks out"



The Radiomir case appears a bit thicker than that of eg the 249. Probably because of the size of the P.3000 movement





Note that the production version will have the word California engraved on the inside of the case at the 12 o'clock position.
The prototype that was shown at SIHH doesn't have this.



You can find the SIHH specifications here:

The first official OP photos of the watch from the SIHH press kit can be found here:

The 424 and 425 were introduced together in the SIHH documentation. Sadly I wasn't allowed to take pictures of the 425 because the prototype did not have the pig on the dial...

Thanks for looking

I am not a fan of too much Cali options. The date and logo disrupt the dial. I also think the California inscription is contrived, as that is a nickname given to this dial configuration vs. the actual name.
