Panerai Radiomir Firenze 3 Days
Panerai’s boutique in the heart of Florence has acted as the brand’s flagship location for over a century. Through the years, it has expanded and undergone renovation, but it still remains the spiritual home of the company. It is this boutique, the Officine Panerai Firenze San Giovanni, that was the inspiration behind this limited edition Radiomir Firenze 3 Days.
The watch is beautifully decorated entirely by hand by Panerai’s master engravers, with each case requiring a whole week of work to create. The design, engraved delicately on the brushed steel of the case, is inspired by the floral and geometric shapes found on the marble of the Florentine churches. The elegant black dial features a satiné soleil finish, with the word ‘Firenze’—Italian for Florence—made out prominently above 6 o’clock.
The hand-wound P.3000/F movement, created entirely in-house at the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel, makes its debut in this decorative timepiece. Like the case, it is decorated with engravings of Florentine motifs, and can be viewed through an exhibition caseback.
There are only 99 pieces available, and to make one of them your own, you’ll have to book a plane ticket to Florence; they are reserved solely for clients of the illustrious boutique.
