Panerai’s The Rösel Radiomir

Auctioned by Artcurial in Monaco for €110,500/RM520,843.

This rare Radiomir dating from the 1940s is an exceptional Panerai diver’s watch that was formerly the property of Helmut Rösel, a frogman of the German navy during World War II. The 46mm timepiece, which features a mechanical 618 calibre with 17 jewels, a steel case, and a military strap, was accompanied by a commando compass, a military decoration, and Rösel’s combat swimmer badge. More personal effects included with this lot were a diver’s logbook of the period that documented the evolution of the young soldier’s military career and the various missions in which he participated, an original photograph, and two of his handwritten letters.
