PANERAI RADIOMIR California
One of the main characteristics of the Radiomir is its dial, of which several versions exist. The first to appear, as early as 1936, was the so-called “California” dial, with its distinctive alternation of Roman and Arabic numerals, bar markers and a railway track minute circle. But given the need to increase its visibility so that the commandos could use the watch in the most complete darkness, Panerai made the dial more luminous. The Panerai California is one of the most famous Radiomir's, many other brands have since copied the dial design.
Comes as a full set with papers and box.

WHY WE LOVE IT
The Cali style dial has been copied a lot over the years, but none have matched the dial of the Panerai. A real classic in watchmaking design.
