in his book, only describes it as a...rare 3646 with engraved bezel. He doesn't provide any valid reason why the engraved bezel should be there.

a volcanic mind and was a "tinkerer". The 3646 with engraved bezel, was produced in the 60' in very few pieces (some 20-30 max) as a show piece and give away. Perhaps, Giuseppe Panerai found some 3646 parts somewhere and simply "did something with them"

Very nice brown "degrade" dial but only 30m WR like the PAM 249
