Hands-On with the Panerai “Tropical” Editions

Post by Darksider » April 14th 2016, 2:03pm

“Tropical” is the nickname given to vintage watch dials that have faded from black as they were when they left the factory, to varying shades of brown. One reason for the change in colour is the breakdown of the colour pigments due to ultraviolet radiation in sunlight, hence the moniker. Panerai’s latest historical remakes takes inspiration from such tropical dials, with both the Radiomir 1940 3 Days Acciaio PAM00662 and Luminor 1950 3 Days Acciaio PAM00663 fitted with grey-brown dials that do a convincing job of approximating a vintage patina.
