Officine Panerai Radiomir Otto Giorni

This year's Watches & Wonders event has brought some interesting retro inspired watches with contemporary materials to the forefront. Over at Officine Panerai they’ve released a new pair of watches for the Radiomir collection with the “Otto Giorni” nickname due to its 8-day power reserve. Both options feature similar design cues that simultaneously imbue them with modern and aged aesthetics. The cushion-shaped 45 mm case is made of Brunito eSteel which is an alloy made from recycled scrap metal. Its final aged look is made possible by a black PVD coating which is partially removed by tumble polishing. Mounted to the case is an aged eSteel bezel that follows the same aesthetics, seamlessly blending in with the case and providing a cohesive design. On the flip-side is a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. The design of its main plate and bridges is reminiscent of old movements in which the mechanism was contained between two plates concealing most of the wheels and only exposing a few details, such as the balance cock and the intermediate wheel.It features the iconic thin wire-style lugs, often seen on the Radiomir model and comes equipped with a knurled setting-crown embossed with the “OP” logo. All topped by a domed sapphire crystal and with a water-resistance that can reach up to 100 meters (330 feet).Time is exhibited on the iconic Panerai sandwich dial in brown or blue with hour index markers and the Arabic numerals: 6 and 12. All these indicators are in an ecru hue that gives off that faux-vintage hue.At first glance it almost seems as if there are two sub-dials, but in actuality we only have a small seconds at 9 o’clock. On the opposite side are the Italian inscriptions “8 GIORNI” that translates to “8 days” and “BREVETTATO” for “patented”.Both dials have a textured surface with a smoked finish. They also share a gradient effect in which the brown and blue hue start off with a brighter center, but then darken as they stretch out towards the dials periphery. These visual choices pair very well with the Brunito eSteel to further consolidate the aged look of these models.The blued central hour/minutes hands, hour index markers and Arabic numerals have all been fitted with a green luminescent hue, for an enhanced legibility. The divided hour hand is also a nice, subtle, vintage detail usually only seen on historic Radiomir models.
