http://www.thewatchbox.com Officine Panerai's past and present unify in the Panerai Radiomir 8 Days Titanio PAM 346. With the classic profile of the 1930s "3646" combat watches and the refinements befitting a modern luxury watchmaker, the PAM 346 has something to please all breeds of Paneristi. The vintage "cushion" case of the WWII Panerai dive watches lives in the Radiomir PAM 346. Its squared-off form and gently curved case back wears large without imposing on the wrist. The grade 5 titanium case is a vision of Panerai heritage, but the effect of the light weight alloy is equivalent to the likes of a Forged Carbon Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore. It's almost possible to forget the PAM 346 is there. But you can't miss this watch's style. It's a look that combines brushed and polished titanium with gorgeous chocolate and rose gold accents. The latter animate the Panerai sandwich dial and impart a distinctly upscale impact. Tobacco and rose gold in tandem speak to the luxury mission of the modern Officine Panerai maison, the finishing quality rivals the best from Rolex. Add a brown alligator leather strap with white contrasting stitch, and the Radiomir PAM 346 achieves a black tie competence rivaled by few of its fellow bruisers from the house of Panerai. Inside the Radiomir case, the Panerai in-house caliber P.2002/9 keeps the beat with modern precision, outstanding cosmetic finish, and useful refinements. Frequent travelers will revel in the ability to set the hour hand independently of the minutes for easy time zone transitions. The eight-day power reserve permits days of rotation between favorite Panerai models without worry about a stopped watch; the hidden case back power reserve gauge keeps tabs on the state-of-wind. A modern luxury standout that respects the best of Panerai heritage, the Radiomir 8 Days Titanio PAM 346 embodies the Florentine brand's finest traditions.
