Panerai Radiomir Unveils New 2023 Model: Panerai Radiomir Quaranta Goldtech™ PAM01026
Panerai Radiomir Quaranta Goldtech™ PAM01026: A New Addition to Panerai Radiomir 2023 Collection
Introducing the Panerai Radiomir Quaranta Goldtech™ in Red Gold at Watches and Wonders 2023
The Panerai Radiomir Quaranta Goldtech watch 2023 is a timepiece that is part of Panerai’s Radiomir collection, which pays homage to the brand’s early history as a supplier of precision instruments to the Italian Navy. The Radiomir Quaranta Goldtech watch stands out due to its use of Goldtech, a proprietary gold alloy developed by Panerai, which offers enhanced durability and a distinctive warm hue.
The new Panerai Radiomir Quaranta Goldtech™ in red gold (PAM01026) was presented at the 2023 “Watches & Wonders” Geneva Watchmaking Fair. This new model features a Goldtech™ case in red gold with a white sunburst dial and a matte brown alligator leather strap. The ratio of platinum to copper in Goldtech™ red gold, a material developed exclusively by Panerai, has been carefully blended to give it a richer and more vibrant tone.
Features and Design of the Radiomir Quaranta Goldtech™ PAM01026
Tracing its origins, the Radiomir collection reinterprets Panerai’s pioneering watches with a contemporary vision, recreating for contemporary watch connoisseurs the legendary naval divers’ watches of the 1940s. Retaining the distinctive features of the first Radiomir prototype, the new watch’s design is simple and distinctive, bringing a contemporary twist to the iconic design details and precision performance, combining subtlety and watchmaking expertise to reveal Panerai’s innate Italian elegance.
The Italian word “Quaranta”, meaning “40”, represents the new 40mm case size, a new interpretation of the 47mm Radiomir prototype created more than eighty years ago; at 10.15mm thick, it is the thinnest of all Panerai watches. The Radiomir Quaranta Goldtech™ in red gold features the collection’s signature conical crown and a matte brown alligator leather strap for a casual and luxurious look that echoes the contemporary lifestyle.
Subtle details lend this watch a vibrant contemporary flair: a classic cushion-shaped case and a simple white sunburst dial with Arabic numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock only. With a simple twist, you can admire the light flowing over the delicate textures, while the beige Super-LumiNova® material glows green in the dark. The watch is equipped with an interchangeable strap system that allows for the replacement of the brand’s other strap styles, such as the casual calfskin strap or the glossy alligator strap, both available in a variety of vibrant colors for women, and the strap can be purchased separately to match the wearer’s mood or occasion with the Radiomir Quaranta Goldtech™ in red gold.
