Back to the fundamentals: Panerai Logo Pre Vendome 5218-201/A.

A picture I cannot remember where I found it, but I will credit upon request. 

Not a sandwich dial, but in this case, who cares? Minimalist, but strong looking, with these warm and juicy tritium indices... Perfect symmetry. Not much wording.

I made a close up from this picture. 

Isn't that the Panerai we love? 



Just perfect! [nt]

If I only had to choose 1 Panerai..

This would be it smile

I think I would choose the same... Unless we consider the Marina Militare non matching 202/A... [nt]

My favorite detail is how the lume is filled into a cavity of the milled out numerals. I wish more dials were manufactured this way. The Cali dial also has a similar approach to it lume application but the lume is filled “all the way to the top”... love it.

Even if not a sandwich dial, I have a huge fascination for that one, indeed. These numbers... Hmmmm! [nt]

I only wish I wasnt a lazy bone and photraph mine in a way that's appropriate with its "status". In the ideal light conditions, the indices of the one below are like KFC...finger licking good smile

Send it to me, I will take care of the pictures. ;) [nt]
