The PAM514 is known as the Radiomir 1940. The newer case design is really a combination of design elements from the Radiomir and the Luminor cases in general. Some watch collectors might call it a historically-influenced transitional case from Panerai’s history. This case really brings out the best of both worlds for both the Radiomir and Luminor cases.
The PAM514 was launched in 2014 and features a case that is 47mm wide with Panerai’s in-house made P.3000 manually wound movement – a mechanism that is quite attractive visually through the expansive sapphire crystal caseback window.
The P.3000 is a simple yet elegant movement. The bridge design is attractive and the mixture of industrial design and grace is apparent when you look at it and difficult to master in the way Panerai was able to achieve. Operating at a frequency of 21,600 bph (3Hz), the P.3000 has a power reserve of 72 hours. Functionally, the movement offers the time with subsidiary seconds dial and the date. When you pull the crown out one spot it moves the hour hand around in one hour stops which is useful for traveling, and also how you set the date. Though it does make adjusting the date a bit of a nuisance compared to a traditional quick-set date.
