Panerai Trio Pam 217 Pam 203 and Pam 127 - Old school.

 By: Bill : January 13th, 2021-09:26
Back in the day post Vendome these three watches where and the start of the push.  It was a time when we all had to get on the wait list and everyone waited kindly.  I used to know all the reference model at the time.  Slowly moving ahead 10 years it got to complicated corporate changes and my collection froze.  I couldn't keep up with the number of models being introduced and I got lost in the transition.  I still keep a nice selection pre 2010 and still advocate that everyone need to have at least experience with a base Panerai like the Pam000 or a nice Radiomir base model.

I still has fond memories of the days of “Panerai mania” and keep models that will always have a special place in my collection. 

Completely agree Bill! There was a time I could identify all models ...

... by their model numbers.

Now I need to have a list at hand or check Google! Lol!

The models you share here already are coveted classics.

Best! Abel

Awesome grail trio picture. And yea a base is a must have as well as a Radiomir.

Let's not forget about the whole strap thing.

Awesome! The magic of Panerai is that just one watch has multiple looks with just a strap change. -John

those where the days. When in order to appeal to the buyers, you didn't have to play with colour palettes for the...dials smile Congrats for your taste in Panerais, Bill smile

The basic Panerai DNA is what I love. I like the 000 as much as the 217 still pure. I which I followed them pre Vendome.

A killer trio, and you can add a few others from your collection, such as the 372, the 249, maybe the 232...

 By: Bill : January 14th, 2021-15:48

We should have one 44 mm Panerai in a collection, indeed.
