Four Panerai Watches With Military-Green Dials

Post by koimaster » August 1st 2019, 9:21am

Despite being a younger brand than most others on the watchmaking block, Panerai has nevertheless built a reputation on solid watches designed for and used by professional mariners, more specifically, the military. The Royal Italian Navy created exclusive watches for the Navy’s divers to use which would allow them to view the time underwater and during night operations. These watches were called Radiomir watches thanks to their use of Radiomir paint on the dial, a radioactive substance which glowed in the dark. You can buy Radiomir watches from Panerai these days, but there is no radioactive material in them. The Radiomir 1940 collection represents their most basic and pure design, and now they have some new dial colours.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
