Siluro a Lento Corsa (S.L.C.)

Panerai:

The Panerai Radiomir S.L.C. 3 Days (PAM 425) also has a historic dial of strongly minimalist design, with alternating bar and dot-shaped hour markers.  This version was probably created in the late 1930s to experiment with the sandwich construction of the dial, in which two plates are filled with a layer of luminous material today Super-LumiNova® the luminescence of which emerges through apertures corresponding to the markers cut in the upper plate.   The name of this watch refers to the Siluro a Lento Corsa (S.L.C.), the slow-speed torpedo on which the commandos of the  Royal Italian Navy rode during their heroic underwater missions, equipped with Panerai watches and instruments. A slow-speed torpedo is drawn in relief on the dial and the inscription S.L.C. is engraved on the flange at 12 oclock.
