1st live shots of the Panerai PAM341 L'Egiziano!

Jul 31, 2010,07:07 AM

Ciao Fellows!

As promised, some live shots of the actual production PAM 341 even though this is not my piece!

So far as i know, the specs for this watch is that it has a final specification of the following that differs from what even the profile page for the PAM 341 says so:

1. Water resistance of 100meters ( 10atm)

2. Seconds hand does NOT hack, nor does it zero-reset ( even though this is based on the PAM 2002 movement which has both a hacking second in the form of zero-reset seconds hand)

3. The crystal is plexi, not sapphire

A single point that I want to make, and this being very subjective, is that the watch somehow "feels" smaller than when i last handled the SIHH sample, i would even think that they altered the dimensions of the piece slightly, such that it "wears" better, and the lugs i really feel that they shortened it so much.

But of course, this does not take away the fact that this is one mighty piece! And one that i'm gonna get when my piece comes!

Enjoy the live shots guys!




The case is about 2.5 times larger than even a "normal" special edition

You receive a screwdriver, extra plexiglas, and a longer strap, the watch is affixed with the shorter strap of the 2.

The 2 belts in comparison

With a "puny" 45mm!

And a 47mm!

Interesting to note here is that the plexi side is entirely transparent!Love the effect!

On a VERY asian wrist, but none the lesser!

A pity the Egiziano is too big for my wrist, I would have loved to get it! Thanks for the informations about the non hacking movement, and the plexy. I was somehow lost: Once a plexy, then a sapphire, then a plexy... As for the non hacking movement, it is... 

Non problemo!

 By: BluNotte : July 31st, 2010-07:37
Yes, so it seems that they settled with a plexy at the end. Also, yes while the homepage still says that it has a zero-reset function, in reality that is as far as my 2533 from coming into reality! Ciao Stephen

Fits perfectly on the wrist!

I enjoyed your post ! I really like the looks of the watch but it's size If that was 50mm MAXIMUM, it would be great but 60 mm ?? I hope you din't mind that I try to be honest but this watch really looks stupid one somebody's wrist. If you can afford it a... 

No worries Bruno....

To each his own, and i always accept with grace everyone's opinions, whether good or bad. But as I have said way before when the 341 was 1st announced, I do not live for other's opinions, while i can accept advice, but in no way do i have an obligation to...

Hi BluNotte, Thanks for the review on the actual piece.. Awesome packaging and the attentive detail to supply a wearable length of strap, though the watch head is still huge.. Cheers,

Apa kabar, very interesting watch to see in flesh, as I have not seen one. i am curious, i see the watch bigger than your wrist, how do you feel on your wrist? does it move around or stay still. enjoy your excitement waiting yours. Eddy

Halo Kawan...

 By: BluNotte : August 1st, 2010-08:00
The piece is indeed an amazing one! Well, for me who loves gigantic watches, the Egiziano definitely feels great! I am unsure about whether it will stay still or move around, as I do not want to put the strap through the buckle as this is NOT my watch. Ch... 

Thank you BLUNOTTE

Thanks for the 1st live shots of the L'Egiziano! I like it a lot especially this is one of the most iconic historical Panerai timepiece. Now 100m, so everyone can bring that to swin now at least! All the best for those who are going to get theirs! Nien

Hello, Thank you so much for posting these pics right away. They ( the photos) are very nice and you have answered some of my questions. I however could not tell from the Pics if it has gold hands?? Are they indeed gold?? Also does the plexi have a more r... 

Also one further question......

 By: jchubb59 : July 31st, 2010-21:40
Hello again, The box is made of teakwood correct? And the construction of the wood box has corner finger joints for each corner?? I looked like it might, but I couldn't tell from the pictures. Thanks, Jonathan

Hey there John!

 By: BluNotte : August 1st, 2010-08:16
I'm glad you liked them! As for your questions, the hands are NOT gold, they are black, like a regular PAM. The plexy on the edges are i would say 90 degrees, so not rounded as you say. And the piece does feel lighter than i had expected it to be, all due... 

Good job, thanks for posting

Looks like the box is of similar size to the PAM203? But I don't really need another coffee table!

Ma man!

 By: BluNotte : August 1st, 2010-08:17
Hey Alec, I do not own a 203 so i do not know how big that box is! but this is indeed gigantic!Much bigger than any watch box i have ever seen in my life! Cheers Stephen

Hi, Stephen, Thanks for sharing the pics of the 341! It looks massive and cool! I am very glad to hear the depth resistance was increased to at least 10atm, as now some of these will be able to be put to the test where they belong; underwater! Hopefully y...

I was really hoping that the final production model would have had gold hands and a sapphire crystal. Thank you for taking the time to post images

Unfortunately not the specs as you had wished!
