Quote from the SIHH documentation:

Loyalty to its historic origins perfectly blended with elegance and sophistication: these are the
characteristic features of the new Radiomir 8 Days GMT Oro Rosso.


The 395 has one of the most beautiful brown dials. The dial has a magical golden sheen.
It really is an elegant and sophisticated looking watch. Just beautiful. You have to see it in person.

The 395 is akin to the currently discontinued stainless steel 268 (pics at the bottom of the page),
but note that the new 395 doesn't have a cyclops and that the 268 doesn't have an AM/PM indicator.

The 395 is a special edition Radiomir. Its case is 45mm and made of red gold "oro rosso".
This is a new type of gold that - according to my information - has not been used by OP before.

The photo below shows its golden sheen as the dial catches the light.
Its beauty is hard to capture with flash photography - but trust me, this dial is something special.
The official photographer has done a much better job showing what I mean.
Check out the official photos with the links at the bottom of the page.

As impressive as the front of the watch is, the movement (P.2002/10) is just stunning.
In my opinion, this watch clearly shows what OP are capable of now.

Perfect finishing and engraving. Such a pleasure to look at.

The P.2002 calibre is handwound and offers the functions date, second time zone, AM/PM indicator, zero reset and a horizontal power reserve indicator on the dial (aka "fang").

Note that the 395 has a sandwich dial with green Luminova, as opposed to the ecru that we have been seeing on most new watches lately.

Amazing capture

January 25 2012, 8:19 PM 

That skelotenized movement is gorgeous, not a high-end finish (as it is not meant to compete at that level) but rather a sign of the capability and good taste happy.gifhappy.gifhappy.gif

Cheers and best from the holyland,

I really like the look of the skeletonized movement ..

January 25 2012, 8:31 PM 

It's done in a "tool-like" industrial way, a great alternative to the base 2002 finish.

Indeed...

January 25 2012, 10:37 PM 

But at home I noticed that the luminova appears green in the photos... Could be that it lit up this way because of the lighting. Ecru luminova lights up green as usual in the dark, so that would make sense.
Cheers,
Martin

Like this one very much but

January 25 2012, 10:19 PM 

Like this one very much but I wonder what these watches would look like without the Sandwich AM/PM. I think they might look better if they just apply it to the dial opposed to cutting it out like that.

They don't just do that on this watch, they do it with all the AM/PM indicators. But, what do I know.

That movement is an improvement IMHO.

Pictures are perfect as always Martin. happy.gif

Is this the same movement in the 233?

January 25 2012, 10:47 PM 

I believe that it is the same movement... Why couldnt they do the bridge like THAT in the 233!!!?!?!

That movement looks so much better!
