Panerai PAM00390 & WWII LEGEND LSA1607056 Strap by L´invitta Legione (Gallery)

By Erwan Grey

The evolution from Radiomir to Luminor is completed. The Second World War having drawn to a close, the Florentine company continues the technical research begun at the start of the war, culminating in the development of the Luminor, characterized by the crown-protecting bridge, with reinforced wire lugs created from the same block of steel as the case, the cushion-shaped case as in the Radiomir 1940 and the flat, wider bezel. Nowadays the models with this case are known as Luminor 1950. The PAM00390 is one celebration of the heritage in Firenze Panerai times. Wellcome to the history with this amazing combo.

This watch is defined in military records as the “Radiomir”, a name identifying the model of the watch, but which was actually the original name of the self-luminous paste developed by Panerai to coat the figures and hands of its watches.
