Panerai Radiomir PAM062 Christie's

Panerai Radiomir PAM062 Christie's

The PAM062 is a milestone in Panerai's history.
It is one of the first Radiomir produced in large series, after the Radiomir PAM021.

If the PAM021 is very historic, the PAM062 (circa 2000) seems to have unveiled the Officine's attempt to come up with a great looking Panerai, years before the magical formula of the SIHH2011.

And the result is almost perfect:  12-3-6-9 numerals, gold hands, Zenith 680 movement, very thin case; all the cool gimmicks are here.

But the problem of this Panerai is the case. If the proportions are perfect and the metal very cool (white gold: why not?), the size, 40mm, is very small for a Radiomir (the vintage "Radiomir" 3646 measure 47mm).
We could say that this is the perfect Lady Panerai!!

Final bid @ Christie’s on May 14, 2012: 8125chf.

This is quite reasonable for such lovely women's Panerai!
