Ceramic-styled Panerai watch praised

First published: 11-04-2011

An eye-catching Panerai timepiece has received a glowing review, which may tempt watch fans to consider splashing some cash.

The Radiomir 8 Jours Ceramique 45mm PAM 384 is the ticker in question, with the Watch Observer so impressed by the device's details that it gave it a rating of 72.5 out of 100.

A highlight feature of this Panerai watch is the fact that it sports a case styled entirely in black matte ceramic, except for the wire-loop strap and the timepiece's back attachment, which are finished with a PVD coating.

"[The] designing quality of this ceramic case is excellent. The curves of the "cushion" are as delicate as with a stainless steel case," a critic at the Watch Observer noted.

Some other features of this fashion watch include a dial that displays hour and minute hands, as well as power reserve and second sub-dials to give further information to wearers.

Panerai watches have many celebrity fans, with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Jason Statham and Sylvester Stallone all donning pieces from the brand in the past.
