Replica Panerai Radiomir California, a Radiomir watch with a similar dial effect that blends the blue Panerai hands with the California dial. For those who haven’t seen a California dial watch before, the reason the markings are different on the top and bottom halves is, supposedly, because the prototypes made for the Italian Royal Navy had a dial with Roman numerals and Arabic numerals to make displaying them easier. Apparently, the Navy loved the look of half and half, despite no practical advantage, and thus the California dial was born.
