We offer the lowest prices anywhere online, and if you'd like to know the know the price of a watch, simply click on our links in the description below. If you enjoy our videos, we would greatly appreciate it if you would buy a watch from JazTime.com once in awhile. Alright, so today, we're gonna be reviewing the Panerai Radiomir SLC, reference number PAM 425. We're gonna be talking about the dial, bezel, case, crown, strap, buckle, and we'll be talking about the movement towards the end of the video. Okay, so moving right into the dial, as you can see, very minimalistic dial, which refer to the SLC dial, which is a very minimalistic sandwich dial. As you can see, if I sort of tilt it at an angle, you can kinda see the indentations of each hour marker, sort of having that extra depth to it and that's because the sandwich dial is a double-layered dial, so there's a bottom layer of luminosity with a top layer that is the actual dial. The reason for this specific dial for this Radiomir is that it's a throwback to one of the vintage models. This watch actually has a lot of history behind it. So it's a throwback to the reference number 2533 back in 1936, back when Rolex used to allow other companies to use their watches in terms of the case, the movement, and the dial. So Panerai had foraged during this time testing different types of watches. At the time, they were not a commercial watch maker, so Panerai did not sell to the public. What they originally were doing, they were actually specializing in luminous technologies for usage of tactical underwater situations for the military and such. And that's where this watch kinda came from was because of those numerous attempts to make sort of that luminous watch for the military and such. So we have this very simplistic, minimalistic dial, just absolutely gorgeous, it's nice black, and for the brown tinting on the hour markers or what's referred to as a dirty brown dial. It helps, the reason why this is called the dirty brown dial is cause it mimics the age of old vintage patina, so we have the nice creamy colored hour markers on the hour hand as well. Because back in the older years, they actually use to use a special material called tritium in the hour markers, and over time, the tritium would, because of oxidation, would sort of slowly turn from its original color into this brown color, this sort of coffee brown color, which is absolutely beautiful as you can tell. It matches very nicely with the strap. You see that overall brown contrasting look is just gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. But one thing I want to mention is the hour markers are just simple dots, so the one and two, four and five, and so on and so forth, and nicks for the three, six, and nine, and double for the 12 o'clock positions for easier land marking, so you can know exactly where the 12 o'clock position is, which is fairly obvious with the Radiomir Panerai name, just nice and bold text. The camera might not be picking it up very well, but the six o'clock position is another reference to those vintage times, that it's a small little, let me see if I can get the light there. There we are, you can see that sort of small, black hidden logo there, and that's actually a throwback to the Panerai black seal icon's silhouette, which was the SLC Torpedo, so pretty cool fact there. So let's go ahead and move on to the bezel now. So the bezel, nicely high-polished bezel, so you can see very reflective matching with the case as we move on to the case. The case size is a 47 mm case size, so from my index finger to my thumb here, 47 mm in diameter. For the case sizing, you can see very thick casing, so it will sit high on your wrist, won't fit under your suit cuffs, dress cuffs, not too well, but made more of a bolder statement with it. But the high polish really matching with the high polish on the bezel as well. It is a Radiomir, so the Radiomir style casing is this sort of square blocking casing. It doesn't have the typical patented lever crown protector. And we have these wire lugs for the strap. Moving on to the crown now, one thing I do like about the Panerai is that the crown almost looks like a little diamond jewel on the side of the case. But the crown is just a simple, screw down crown, that unwinds counter clockwise as so. In the standard position, this is where you can wind the watch. Specifically for the Radiomir, you'll probably need more than 20 clockwise winds for this watch as this is a manual wind watch. Now what that means is that this, as we move on to the movement later in the video, this watch does not have an oscillator, so this watch was sitting on your wrist, it won't be keeping its energy or momentum to keep the watch running indefinitely. You actually have to wind this watch once the power reserve is gone. But besides that, pulling it out to the next position will allow you to adjust the hands bidirectionally as shown. Very simple, very easy. Always make sure press the crown nice and tight in against the case as you want to keep the watch water resistant. Alright, so let's go ahead and move on to the strap now. So the strap is a beautiful, age-distressed leather strap with a patternized basic dark brown strap. Very beautiful, see the nice contrasting from the brown to the black. It's on this side as well. You can see the official Panerai name embossed on the back of the strap there. The buckle is just a simple tang buckle in the stainless steel with the Panerai name embossed on there, as you can see, very nicely high polished as well, bring a little more shine to it. For the back of the case, we're looking at the back of the case, we're looking at a nice large open sapphire case back, an exhibition case back, as you can see, typical exhibition case backs will like to show off the oscillator, and you will be able to move it around and actually look at it, but instead, we'll just see the balance wheel moving, and then this very beautiful machined, very beautiful machined casing inside for the movement, made up of the 21 jewels as it states. It's the caliber Panerai 3000 movement, their P 3000 movement, so in-house made by Panerai. We have the Panerai name engraved on the side of the small portion of that case backing with the stainless steel at that corner there. So for the movement, as I did say, is a manual wind, so you have to wind the watch manually every time it loses its power. However, the time that it can hold the power reserve up to is three days, so it is a manual wind for three days. So a very long time, meaning you would have to wind it once every three days, put it down on a Friday evening, pick it back up on a Monday afternoon, and it will be keeping time just fine, and then you'll have to wind it later in that day. Alright, but besides that, very beautiful watch overall, and actually go ahead and show you this watch on my wrist. So I do apologize, I actually gotta take it off here. Alright, so there is the watch on my wrist. As you can see, a very large and in charge watch as it is a 47 mm watch, sits high on the wrist, as you can see. So it's pretty high on the wrist, so it probably won't fit under those suit cuffs, dress cuffs, and then very reflective sapphire, that dome sapphire crystal that sits high as well. But just a very simple, minimalistic overall watch with a very nice history to it.
