Opinions on the 1334/5

Jan 16, 2023,16:28 PM

Hi Pam fans.. I recently tried the 1334/5 and I found the 1334 to be very attractive.. 

But I have some concerns about the :
- reliability of the p6000 movement and 
- durability of the new patina steel 

Would really appreciate some feedback and thoughts on this ref..

I saw these in person last week

My only thoughts were how nice to would be at 42mm. I love the style but very sparse at 47mm. Interestingly with Panerai as people seem to be abandoning the brand for several reasons I am finding more and more to like in recent offerings.

It is 45mm

Ah I thought 47mm

They are optically large due to sparsity of the dial, I love the style though.

I’m feeling really drawn to so many Panerai right now too…

I saw that some 40mm Radiomir are coming this year.


 By: yming : January 16th, 2023-18:40
I think 40mm would wear too small given the wire lugs

Oh? I don’t think it’s too small…

Really? interesting...

I would love a classic time only in a smaller size, I know it's not historically accurate but that doesn't mean it wouldn't work, it think they could do very well.

Yes, I’ve enjoyed mine, I believe 40mm was the size of Radiomir as a relaunch of the model in 1999…

My pam062, 700 total pieces in white gold with the Zenith Elite caliber, 100m resistance, extra pic in reply above. There was a GMT in 1999, mine was introduced in 2000. All the 40mm were gold I believe. ...  

Maybe owners of 992 and 2020

could chime in on the case quality/durability. There is Radiomir Quaranta (40mm) coming this year with P900 caliber ...  

My opinion Yes and Yes 🙌

I saw the grey and liked it a lot. As for your concern about the movement, really can’t offer any expert knowledge but at the price, if you look around these days, many watches without fancy movements are in a similar range. Also, I believe Panerai is off... 

Fair point about the price. That is an objection many have given the movement, but I have to agree with you.

As far as the OP’s concern over stability of this steel, I didn’t realize something like this can patina. That would give me second thoughts even though I really like this piece.


 By: yming : January 16th, 2023-18:51
The case looks very attractive - something between polished and brushed.. I suppose it’s similar to brushed steel and so it should be fine..

I wonder if the steel has had a chemical treatment to achieve effect.

Two handsome watches though.


 By: yming : January 16th, 2023-23:22
Polish - sandblast - polish again, is what I read

Ah cool 👌🏻

 By: KURT_DAVID : January 17th, 2023-04:50
Thanks for clarifying 👍🏻

I think the P6000 is fine personally. Many members here have that movement on their reference and I don't recall any of them complaining...

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : January 16th, 2023-17:57
Our complaint on PAM movement is more with the new P900 or P9000 series which has received some changes lately (or maybe almost "downgrades" one might say). I still love my Panerais and looking to add one or two more (with the P3000 in my case). Here I wo... 

I would trust your strap combo advice any day yacomino 😂

The grey in person was impressive but that blue does look cool in the photos 🙂

very true both are nice and one could have fun with both...just a bit more flexibility with the grey on straps but several options could be possible for the blue as well!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : January 16th, 2023-20:00
Keep in mind 6 months ago I did not think rose gold case could be strap monster and not my VC rose gold is getting paired with all sort of straps ))

My eyes…

 By: yming : January 16th, 2023-18:38
Gravitate towards the grey.. and I always choose with the eyes.. ha Also the blue hands stand out more against the grey dial

They would be nice in 47mm

I think panerai won’t introduce a new 47mm Radiomir. Which is really a pity and against any historical heritage on my point of view. 45mm might be more wearable for some . For me the proportion are just not as balanced as on a 47mm. The vintage cases and ...

At the pday they showed a preview of the Radiomir they showed a really interesting Radiomir with lots of vintage DNA

 By: Ahoi : January 22nd, 2023-14:04
You could see the glance in the eyes of the historical paneristis. And than the mentioned it’s 45mm … thank u JMP… NOT 🤪😂
