New Radiomirs

Looks like Panerai have released a couple of new Radiomirs. I believed these were displayed at SIHH 2015 but nothing much else were presented at that time. The 3 new Radiomirs are the PAM00609 Radiomir Black Seal 8 Days Acciaio, PAM00610 Radiomir 8 Days Acciaio and the PAM00619 Radiomir 1940 3 Days Automatic Titanio.

It looks like Panerai may be moving away from its dependence on ETA movements in its basic offering and moving towards being a full manufacture. Will these pieces replace the PAM00183 and PAM00210? This is yet to be seen, but I will not be surprised. 

To me, I think the use of the 8 Days movement is a much welcome move. It does reduce the need to wind the watch everyday thus reducing the chance of damaging or wearing out the crown and winding stem. 

The introduction of the PAM00619 will complement the PAM00572 and I have to say that I like this watch. 

Anyway, I will update this when I get more information, like the pricing.
