And we’re back with even more from Watches & Wonders in Hong Kong. This time, Panerai shows us what will be a new ongoing collection in its Radiomir 1940s line, with an in-house, micro-rotor-powered, self-winding movement. First, let’s remember that the 1940 is something of a hybrid line between the traditional Luminor and Radiomir collections, as we explained when it was launched way back when with a Minerva movement inside.

The Radiomir 1940 Automatic comes in two versions of the standard 45 mm case – steel (PAM00572) and red gold (PAM00573). The steel comes with a black dial and luminous sandwiched numerals and baton indices. The red gold offers the same only on a brown dial. They both have the classic minimalist Radiomir design with a subtle, almost muted eggshell finish.
