Put aside the blackened appearance, let’s recall the ceramic material. The ceramic materials that would only appear in the dial are becoming more and more watch case materials due to their unique appearance, high hardness, compression resistance and scratch resistance. And this time Panerai equipped its newly released Panerai Radiomir 8 days Ceramica 45mm watch with zirconium oxide (ZrO2) synthetic ceramics.
Zirconium oxide (ZrO2) synthetic ceramic material is applied to the bezel, case and other parts of this watch numbered PAM384, making the entire watch a matte black texture. PAM384 is also completely black in other positions. Black leather strap, black dial, black crown, black lugs, titanium black buckle with DLC coating. The only color that is not black appears on the dial, that is, the Panelli dial and hands that are very characteristic of Panerai. The light brown and black of Panerai’s classic Super-LumiNova material complement each other.
This watch uses the P2002 / 3 self-winding movement with hours, minutes, seconds and calendar functions. The design of the three barrels allows it to have a power reserve of 8 days at a high frame rate of 28800vph. This watch has a diameter of 45mm, is waterproof to 100m, and is limited to 500 pieces.
