Continuing to Remember Minerva with Panerai

So earlier today I shared the Platinum version of the Radiomir 1940 Chronograph.

But not to worry, the good folks at Panerai also like gold!
The above version is the RADIOMIR 1940 Chronograph Oro Rosso (that's red gold, genius).  Like it's platinum brother it is 45 mm in diameter, with what is often referred to as a "California Dial" in that it is half Roman, half Arabic numeral.  This one is MUCH more obtainable, and there are 100 of them!

Last but by no means least is the Radiomir 1940 Oro Blanco (blanco being white super genius).  A 45 mm white gold case is the frame, with a more minimalistic dial with 12 o'clock marked by to 2 indices, and 6 o'clock indicated by 1.  This one is also more "mainstream" with 100 to be had.

Nice one Panerai!  Thank you for remembering Minerva with style and elegance.  Now maybe you could have a word with "Richemont central" and bring Minerva back as a complete brand?
