Just arrived is this excellent San Martin California dialled Radiomir homage watch with a hand winding and automatic movement. With a diameter of 40 mm and case thickness of 12 mm, it is a little smaller than the normal Panerai style watches and really opens the door for more people to have the opportunity to wear these finely styled timepieces. This example comes with a highly polished stainless steel case with a black mother of pearl dial with white Roman and Arabic numerals, a design known as a "California dial". The dial itself is of course black.
However, as it is mother of pearl it does reflect different hues of colour, depending on the angle of light reflection on the dial -a most satisfying experience to behold! The hands and numerals are well lumed (see photo) and the watch is powered by the highly respected PT5000 movement. The PT5000 movement is a relatively new addition brought out by Chinese movement manufacturers H. It is a mechanical movement with automatic and hand-winding capabilities, which beats away at an impressive 28,800 VPH.
The movement has 25 jewels and is 25.6 mm in diameter / 4.6 mm in height. The size of the movement means that it is very versatile as it is small enough and thin enough to fit in a variety of watch cases. The watch has a reported water resistance of 200 metres with a sapphire crystal.
It has, like all San Martin watches an excellent build quality and most watch enthusiasts would agree that San Martin represents the pinnacle in terms of quality of watches that come out of China. This explains why they are generally more expensive than other Far Eastern brands. This super model is now difficult to find having been recently discontinued by San Martin. Please read the description/examine photographs very carefully including dimensions. Questions/more photos welcome but I will be unable to respond to "what's your best price" type of enquiries.
