COVER-Panerai-Green-Dial---EiT

The limited editions and boutique exclusives are always a great way to garner attention and create allure towards certain timepieces. And after several successful ventures down that route Officine Panerai is back with three models bearing a sumptuous green dial.

Two of these new offerings belong to Officine Panerai’s “Radiomir” collection, while another is part of the “Luminor” series. We encounter many watches with black, white and silver dials; but besides a couple of brands like Rolex, IWC, or a recent Oris (we reviewed here). Green dials aren’t that common in horology trends. So, it’s quite a pleasant surprise to witness Officine Panerai suddenly released a trio of them.

And it’s not even the first time Officine Panerai has used a “color gimmick” to shed light over already established models in their on-going production catalogue. Just last year they released four blue colored timepieces, which were also comprised of Luminor and Radiomir models. We also took a close look and wrote a review on these Panerai blue’s that can be read here.

First up we have a “Panerai Radiomir 8 Days” in a 45mm cushion case made out of titanium with a brushed finish and a transparent case back that allows to view the inner workings of the movement. This version is based on the Panerai reference PAM 346 model (we currently have one of these in stock here). Equipped with the characteristic wire loop lugs, for a snug strap fit. Mounted to the case is a polished contrasting titanium bezel; plus a small onion-style setting-crown. Water-resistance can reach up to 100 meters (330 feet).

Time is exhibited on the iconic Panerai sandwich dial with this novel matt dark green color. It uses beige colored hour index markers and Roman numerals for the 6 and 12 o’clock positions. There is a sub-seconds at the 9 o’clock position and a date aperture at the 3 o’clock position with a magnifying lens integrated to the crystal. The gilded hands and all the hour index marks plus Roman numerals have undergone a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility.
