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?

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 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?

thanks Nicolas for clarifying that. but such a PAIN to keep this Watch up and Running .!!! frequent Maintenance, Service, Change Parts ???!!! WOW. who needs that.?? no wonder why it never went to production.!! Cheers Tony
100 hours of use?

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