Panerai Radiomir Eilean

The year 1936 was significant for Panerai for it was when it launched into renown with the Radiomir material that provided luminosity for dive watches when they are underwater. The same year, the Eilean yacht was born and sailed the seas of Europe and the Carribean until the early 21st century. In 2006, Panerai bought the yacht and restored it to its original splendour.

The Radiomir watch that pays it tribute features a brown dial that recalls the teak deck of the Eilean. The 45mm steel case is decorated with a dragon emblem, similar to the one found at the boat's hull, while the caseback is inscribed with the words "Eilean 1936". Each year, only 449 number of pieces of the watch are produced, and this year's release coincides with the Eilean's arrival at Portofino to celebrate Italianità.
