Panerai's Radiomir is the diving brand's most dressy offering, lacking some of the heft as well as the crown guard of its Luminor and Submersible brethren. But it's still every inch (or should that be millimetre) a Panerai. That super-distinctive case, those hands and, of course, those numerals. This time around, we've been treated to a brace of new references: PAM00995, PAM00998, PAM00999 and PAM00997, running the gamut of 45mm three-hand to GMT models and a beefy 48mm ceramic model, with new dial treatments. And what a dial *glorious (not-so-glossy) matt green. Visually, the look is strong; the dark tone amplified by the golden handset and warm, creamy Arabic numerals and carefully worn leather straps. And while the dial in and of itself isn't an earth-shattering innovation, it's certainly attractive. And while the 48mm ceramic is impressive, I think the 45mm GMT on the suede strap is the winning combination. Be warned, though, these are boutique-only pieces.
