Officine Panerai recently unveiled a new series “blue dial” of watches, let’s take a cursory look. There are four pieces in total — two Luminors and two Radiomirs — each with an intense blue dial with satiné soleil finish. Available exclusively at Panerai boutiques worldwide, all pieces come in a special blue box made of polished cherry wood. Not the first time we’ve seen a blue dial from Panerai. But nice looking watches nonetheless. Some basic specs below.
