The production of Radiomir watches for the Italian Navy was launched in 1937. The models featured a large cushion-shaped case with a width of 47mm, wire loops, screw-down crown, luminescent dial, easy to read under water in the dark, and a hand-wound mechanical movement supplied by Rolex. The bracelet was made of oiled and punched leather and with its extra long length could be worn over a diving suit.
The present model is number 55 in a limited edition of only 60 examples in platinum made in 1997 to commemorate the first Radiomir Panerai watch produced sixty years prior. In addition to the other features mentioned above it is also fitted with a period Rolex movement.
