Back in the day post Vendome these three watches where and the start of the push. It was a time when we all had to get on the wait list and everyone waited kindly. I used to know all the reference model at the time. Slowly moving ahead 10 years it got to complicated corporate changes and my collection froze. I couldn't keep up with the number of models being introduced and I got lost in the transition. I still keep a nice selection pre 2010 and still advocate that everyone need to have at least experience with a base Panerai like the Pam000 or a nice Radiomir base model.
