Panerai Radiomir Firenze 3 Days Acciaio boasts both a hand-engraved stainless steel case as well as a laser-engraved in-house movement. Almost all adornments on the Panerai Radiomir Firenze 3 Days PAM672 are dedicated to Firenze (Florence): the dial, the case profile, the largest movement plate, and even the straps feature the Florentine Lily, which has been present on Florence’s coat of arms for almost a thousand years.

The engraving is entirely done by hand, and each case takes one craftsman more than a week to finish. The décor is engraved into a finished and assembled brushed steel case, leaving no room to the artisan for an error. Knowing how hard is steel (compared to gold or brass used for movement’s plates), the result is first visually appealing and mainly, it represents quite a technical achievement.
The gold-toned hands, matching the tan color lume, sandwiched between the black dial planes makes for an extremely classic look. Especially when the dial is wonderfully symmetrical with just the hour and minute hands. This is the dress equivalent of a sports watch. Panerai even uses their plexiglass crystal versus sapphire – which, while more delicate, is traditional, and does add a certain warmth absent from the pure clarity of sapphire crystals.
Even though the Radiomir case is 47mm, it does not wear as large as one might expect. This is mostly because of the bar-style lugs which do not really jut out (as they do on the Radiomir 1940 case style). That means the lug-to-lug length on the watch isn’t dramatically more than the case width. This, in addition to the flat caseback makes for an extremely comfortable fit on the wrist when it comes to the Radiomir 47mm case.
