It is not something you see every day, that's for sure. 

I took these pictures some 14 years ago, in Paris. If I was lucky enough to own a vintage Panerai, that is the kind of  tool I would love to get. 



I've never seen these ones. Very interesting. Thanks for sharing, Nicolas.

I thought so. A reminder of what was Panerai at that time.

Lots of vintage charm in these pieces, two more gems out of Panerai’s remarkable history! Thanks for sharing👍

Certo, Amico. They made some good stuff, at that time. Not only selling watches.

The, you'll have to find a "maiale" and start chasing British ships!!!

I'm not a huge fan of Panerai watches but I'm beginning to learn about them at least.
Thanks for sharing Nicolas!

"Prey" of course;-)

There are not many wonders from the past, maybe four of five, but it is hard to not fall for them.

Don't know whether you're aware of those guys' videos on Youtube...

About magic boxes from the fifties, around minute 34:

Ouch, the Longines Big Weems and the Trittico!!!

 By: amanico : January 12th, 2022-15:47

They tell stories about how those trittici arrived to the market in the fifties and sixties!

Yes, I will have to take the time to listen to the whole hour of interview, again.

 By: amanico : January 13th, 2022-07:45

Many of the videos are worth being watched!

In downtown Barcelona ,two months ago,exhibited together with the big 50mm Egiziano ,both on those vintage dry leather straps,must admit I couldn’t see nothing else after 

Not 50, but 60 mm, the Egiziano GPF 2/56!!! A MONSTER. ;)
