This great-looking, high-end and very stylish timepiece is an Officine Panerai 'RADIOMIR COMPOSITE 3 DAYS' with model number PAM00504. It was new in 2014 and comes complete with its high-quality presentation case, books and papers.
At 47mm, this is a fashionably *BIG*, manually-wound model with dark brown dial, and is mounted on a very nice, distressed brown leather strap which is in great condition.
As you can see from one of the accompanying photos, the display window in the back of the watch's case is unusually large, and reveals the beauty and intricate precision of the mechanism inside, complete with its 'haute horlogerie' finish, for your enjoyment and appreciation.
The 'Radiomir Composite 3 Days' reproduces the design of the first historic watch created by Officine Panerai in 1938 for the Royal Italian Navy, and is fitted with the P.3000 calibre, a movement designed and manufactured entirely in Panerai's facilities and which has a power reserve of 3 days when fully wound.
The case of this watch is made from aluminium that has been given an electromechanical process of ceramization to produce a hard ceramic layer with a matt brown appearance that matches the colour of the dial and feels soft to the touch.
The large 'glass' over the dial is made from a curved piece of the ultra-hard (and therefore scratch resistant) gemstone material known as sapphire, and has also been given an anti-reflective treatment.
The list price for this model brand new was £7,100, but you can benefit from the undeniable and significant boost this watch would give to anyone's image for just £4,950 fully inclusive. That represents a saving of £2150 (approx 30%) compared to list, and a great opportunity for the savvy buyer, especially when you consider that pre-owned Panerai's in this condition don't come around that often compared to, say, Rolex watches!
Note that we will also consider watches in part exchange, so your outlay for this watch could be considerably less than our headline price.
Peace of Mind
Furthermore, when you buy this watch, we will guarantee it for a full 12 months from the date of your purchase for your peace of mind.
And we're not going anywhere either: that guarantee is underpinned by having our own on-site jewellery and watch-repair workshop and by the technicians we have on hand who, between them, have many years of experience working on the high-end Swiss brands.
The ability to just drop by in the (unlikely) event that your watch develops a problem and the after sales service we're able to provide are just a couple of the reasons so many of our customers keep coming back to us when they decide to upgrade and/or trade in their watch.

The accompanying photos are of the actual item that we have for sale. However, there really is no substitute for inspecting, handling and trying on a watch that you may be interested in buying. So we would encourage you to call into our friendly 'boutique' here in Manchester in order to take a closer look.
We're located just off St Ann's Square, in the heart of Manchester's city-centre shopping district. Here, you'll also be able to browse typically around one hundred and fifty other pre-owned Swiss watches that we have out on display, each of which has been selected carefully, based on its condition, from among the many more watches that we see and handle every day. With that many to choose from, you're bound to be able to find one that's just right for you.
On the subject of the condition of the watches that we sell, note that we work very hard to make available only the cream of pre-owned Swiss watches to the public, and this particular watch is a really great example of that effort. Just as one example of how only the better-condition pre-owned Swiss watches make it into our shop's display cabinets and onto this website, watches that we acquire in part-exchange deals that aren't in at least very good condition are sold into our network of specialist trade buyers and smaller private traders.
[Aside: this and our other watches are all displayed alongside a substantial but select stock of beautiful diamond jewellery items that we also sell, many of them with independently-certified diamonds.]
**When enquiring about this particular watch, please quote its unique stock/item number, which is WSN 1140, so we can more easily identify and locate the watch and its details for you. Thank you.
