A couple of new in-house Radiomirs

Post by logan2z » Fri Aug 10, 2018 12:29 pm

In-house manual wind Caliber P.6000 movement, 45mm

PAM000754 logo, $4000
PAM000753 logo/Black Seal $4300

Good looking watches. Prices seem very reasonable.

Hodinkee says sandwich but they look like sausage to me. I think Panerai reserves the sandwich dial for their higher end watches these days.

Yeah it's disappointing they dropped sandwich dial from all of their 8-day luminor models

To be honest I really like the look of the sausage dials. I specifically wanted a 000 because of the painted dial and the solid back.

I like both and have both, I just know it was a cost cutting move is why it irritates me :) They didn't lower MSRP when they switched to sausage

The price point here is actually pretty reasonable for a PAM with an in-house movement - less than the cost of a PAM000 with ETA movement several years ago - so the choice of sausage dial doesn't seem unreasonable.

Those are nice. They don't get enough credit for their in-house movements, which are great.

I wish there was a $4,000 Luminor that didn’t have spring bars and the shitty case.

Is there anyone with a more affordable 8 day movement? I've never actually checked.

I'd love 560q series. Only 1 year with the sandwich dial.

Umm, you could pick up one of the greatest Luminors ever, with a sandwich dial, from a great seller, for not much more :lol:

I’ve never warmed to the larger models. The 44mm case is absolutely perfect for me. The 372 will always be one of those watches I admire on other people.

Oris has a 10 day movement for like 3k new. That’s the cheapest I can think of.

For some reason I don’t mind the “cheapening” of the base model Rads nearly as much as the Luminors.

I've owned five Panerais (still own four) and have never had an issue with any of them, including the in-house movements. I have three JLCs and one did develop an issue soon after I bought it but JLC service had it back on my wrist quickly and it's been perfect since. No issues with any of the IWCs I've owned. But I understand how a negative experience like the one you had could be a turn-off (my one negative experience with Sinn soured me on the brand). Great price for these Radiomirs, though, and really good looking watches.

I was surprised how much I liked the Radiomir case when I had a ceramic one for a minute. I'm pretty sure I need a SS Rad one day

I like the Black Seal model. Neither appear to be on their website.

Agreed on the new ones. I also owned several Panerai and only experienced the one problem. That said, having problems with an IWC, a Panerai, and the recent JLC - all the result of poor QC and the Dallas service center - adds up to a big “never again” for me.
