Inspired by its historical origins, Radiomir 3 Days Acciaio marks a real tribute to the history of Officine Panerai. Many of the characteristics of this watch - excepting the dial which is inspired by the 'anonymous' dials that appeared later, around the mid-40s during, come straight from the prototype created by Panerai in 1936 to equip the brave squad of the Royal Italian Navy. This watch is essentially a reissue of the Panerai Reference 3646 from the late 1930s. That watch, which was made solely for military issue, was 47mm as well. While its robust case construction and larger size might not appeal to everyone, this is a watch that doesn't look as big once it's on the wrist.

This impeccable timepiece bears a strong resemblance to its forebears. In the case of Officine Panerai design and specification remain consistent. New variants may be released, but they are subtle variants of the original which retain the essence of the initial design.
The 47mm case is made of stainless-steel with a polished finish and a transparent case back that allows to view the inner workings of the mechanical movement. Mounted to the case is an also polished stainless-steel bezel. Its intriguing matte black dial with a very simple and minimalist design features the legendary Panerai sandwich dial construction. PAM 721 is also equipped with the thin wire-style lugs, often seen on the Radiomir models. There is also a small bevel setting-crown is on the right-side of the case.
Time is exhibited on the iconic Panerai sandwich dial in black with the hour index markers and the Arabic numerals: 3, 6, 9 and 12. Featuring a pair of central hands with a blue outlining and that’s it. As simple as it can get, while still serving its function of telling time. To enhance the vintage look of this watch and its direct connection with its predecessors from the 1930s, the watch is fitted with a beautiful Ponte Vecchio with large polished pin buckle. Water-resistance on this watch can reach up 100 meters.
Panerai watches are celebrated in the modern era for functional purity, historical design inspiration, and emotional appearances on the wrists of major sports and entertainment figures. This is only the second instance of a modern Panerai with an unsigned dial – the other being the PAM 448 with its California dial that mixes Roman and Arabic numerals. The luxury watch is delivered in steel with a very masculine character.
The hands are blued and look basically identical to those found on the original. Hour index markers and Arabic numerals have all been attributed with a luminescent fitting, for an enhanced legibility. The lume has a faux-patina coloring for that extra vintage appeal.
Officine Panerai PAM 721 model is a true collectors item - the new Panerai Radiomir 3-Days Acciaio comes in a beautifully crafted pear wood presentation box, and it also includes a second Plexiglass crystal in addition to the one that comes pre-fitted.
