The collection world has always been attracted by retro sports watches. However, when it comes to Panerai, we are talking about one of the most active and authoritative online communities in existence. They even have a name—Paneristi—and a website dedicated to their passion—paneristi.com. They say that positive and enthusiastic owners can also be very picky…to put it down. This community will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year. To pay tribute to them, Panerai thinks it would be good to provide them with things they like. So this is Panerai Radiomir Venti PAM02020, specially made to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Paneristi.com.
As you can imagine, this watch is not only an internal item. The community must be invited to participate in the creative process so that the watch not only makes sense, but also pleases Paneristi. PAM02020 “Venti” (20 in Italian) is the result of a co-creation process between Laboratorio di Idee, Panerai’s technical and creative team, and Paneristi. Whether it is a timepiece or a tribute, its sole mission is to pay tribute to this group of loyal connoisseurs and owners. The result is a classic Radiomir watch with many old details.
The case adopts a pure Radiomir traditional shape, in the form of wire ears and cushions, with a diameter of 45 mm and a height of 14.15 mm. Of course it is not a small watch, but two problems must be solved. First of all, the “super-large” case has always been part of the brand’s DNA, contributing to the appeal of Panerai watches. Smaller Panerai watches, even those that fit small wrists, do not have a real halo. Secondly, because there are no traditional lugs, Radiomir feels much more compact than its diameter implies-please see the wrist diagram on my 16.5 cm wrist. Of course, it is not small, but it is still completely acceptable.
The case is guided by Paneristi’s philosophy and is made of AISI 316L steel with a matte, distressed bronze effect. Don’t be scared by the name, as you can see in our photos, the results are relatively cautious. It adds an instrumental look to the watch, and the matte rendering makes it very pleasant. The bezel is also made of steel, with a matte effect, and the crown retains the classic diamond shape without a protective device. The case is waterproof to 100m. copy watch Price
One of the many features of this Radiomir Venti PAM02020 is the back cover, on this occasion, it is engraved with “20th Anniversary PANERISTI.COM”. In addition, between the lugs at 6 o’clock, the owner will see another engraving with “VENTI” written on it. This watch is worn on a typical Panerai strap, here is a brown with beige stitching, although the brand has announced that the beige suede strap is standard with a hot stamped “OP” logo.
The dial of this PAM02020 is also brand new. First, it presents a beautiful sunny frosted brown, which fully blends with the ambient light and creates an elegant reflection effect. Secondly, it is also an iconic feature. It is the so-called sandwich dial. The area on the top plate is cut to display numbers, and the luminous plate underneath is coated with beige Super-LumiNova. The hands are golden and sword-shaped, paying tribute to the brand’s earliest watches. The hour and minute display is very simple. You can see the “PANERISTI.COM 2000-2020” engraving at 6 o’clock-I might avoid using this feature, but this is a personal matter.
The core of the best watch is an internal movement, caliber P.6000. This simple and robust hand-wound engine runs at a frequency of 3 Hz, and a single barrel can store up to 72 hours of power reserve. As we all know, it is stable due to the existence of a double-supported bridge. It has a second stop function, even if the second hand is not displayed here.
