To commemorate and inform buyers of the new(ish) case from Panerai, they have launched a storyline-style website with some cool history and information on the 1940’s style Radiomir case. This case from Panerai is an interesting shape and looks very cool. Enjoy the new site and the video that was released earlier this year on the 1940’s Radiomir Case.


Around the 1940’s the Panerai workshops in Florence perfected a new case, designed to meet to the increasingly demanding requirements of the underwater commandos of the Italian Navy. The case was a development of the one presented in 1936 that is today known as the Radiomir – a term which originally described the luminous material patented by Panerai to make the dial luminous – and it incorporates some innovations designed to make its construction even more solid and resistant.

So the Radiomir 1940 was born.
