The Radiomir 10 Days GMT is issued in three limited series with particularly precious 45 mm-diameter cases : 100 for the platinum model, and 250 for the white gold and pink gold versions. The famous sandwich-type dials radiate renewed simplicity, with applied Arabic numerals facing round hour-markers. These models feature the functions appearing on the original creation, namely two time zones displayed by central hands, small seconds and an am/pm indication at 9 o’clock, the date at 3 o’clock and the large linear power reserve at 6 o’clock. On the back, a broad sapphire porthole reveals the self-winding Manufacture Panerai Calibre P.2003 and its ballbearing-mounted oscillating weight which turns in both directions to wind the springs of three different barrels. The movement is embossed with the brand name and logo.
