I wanted to isolate POY's answer at Samrotandi's original post, to make it clear, and as it is a very interesting information. Here is the original post: panerai.watchprosite.com Here is POY's answer: More info about 5218-206/A (not produced under Panerai...
Kind of crazy
Don't think that anything like that could happen today the way brands are managed. Do brands ever subcontract out small series that they don't want to handle inhouse? Best regards, George
Thanks for reposting this Nicolas!
It is interesting to know hidden stories behind the preV watches. Now it is also interesting to know that the 206/a was designed for military purpose. While the others are solely for civilan watch. Thanks best, Sam
I read the original post
without posting a comment...I have been blown away by Poys knowledge in the past and I am glad that we NOT only have such expertise on this forum but also the kind that is being shared..Many txs...Best regards guillermo
That is the reason why I wanted this post to be read.
I will save this post a bit later, but along with the Blackseal Slytech, these are ref posts fo perpetual knoweldge. I don't know how many people in the Panerai world have such a knowledge. Best, my friend. Nicolas;
Every 100 hours?
I am struggling to think what could require changing. Any clues, Nico?
...just makes me more interested! (Not that I think the bezel on this is anything special...the usual Submersible bezel makes much more sense for a Panerai) POY, can you chime in?

100 hours of use?
Did you mean 100 hours of turning the bezel? Or 100 hours of the watch running? Cheers, Anthony
