PANERAI Submersible 42MM PAM01223 [white done right]

This is the new Submersible - 42mm AKA PAM01223, Panerai’s masterclass on the classic summer-time white dial release.

And yes, it will likely cause those of us that typically shun white dials to fully reevaluate all that we thought we knew about – err, watches with the white dials that is. 

Or to put it in more technical terms – this is white done right!

Special white features of the watch include a glossy white enamel dial with all hands and appliqué markers picked out in contrasting matte black plus a white luminescent pearl at 12hr on the bezel.

And that’s it – no more white was necessary. Further specs: includes: a 42mm AISI brushed Stainless steel case, 300m of water-resistance and a P.900 caliber automatic movement. 

MSRP in the US is 8’900USD.

Thoughts? Un così bel viso bianco! 

Yeah, I can’t exactly speak Italian (at all), those of you that do - please feel free to berate me in the comments! ;)



  1. Hola tLex y demas lectores
    Que belleza de Pam!
    El blanco de todas las miradas...
    Me gustaria que Panerai se decidiera a sacar algun diver con la corona a rosca tradicional. Su sistema de palanca lo encuentro incómodo y antiguo aunque reconozco que es un simbolo de identidad de la marca. Solo uno para variar.

  2. Yes, it's a beauty! If the crown-locking device is too cumbersome for you - just remember that ALL Panerai models are in fact dive watches - even the Radiomir :)

  3. Gracias por el dato. Desconocía que los Radiomir tuvieran la corona a rosca. Tampoco sus 100 metros de resistencia al agua me parecen suficientes para un diver total.

  4. Unfortunately by today's standards the Radiomir does not qualify as a "true" diver's watch however all Panerai models were at one time intended for use underwater so are true historic dive watches :)

    1. But it’s a submersible. I think it does

    2. thanks we know the watch in this article is a submersible but we're discussing the Radiomir. :)
