This one has been out for a while now …

... a few days before. Then at ends of 2021 I called my friendly Boutique asking for a 1075 and I was told that it was completely sold out as it was a Limited edition of just 500 watches. Fortunately I sourced one from a private seller, full set with all

First and last Panerai

Adding to my original posting. PVD is a 9BT model. Last of the tritium dials although I don't know if the dive models were still allowed to use it up to a point before discontinuing. The logo is an original G series of 500 pieces. Some owners had theirs D

Why do these independent/micro-brand limited runs have to be so full of controversy.

Some thoughts about an old friend: Panerai PAM 199 Regatta.

The PAM 199, the Submarsibe Regatta, was in my collection as soon as it was unveiled, in 2004. It was a limited edition of 500 pieces, and as every LE from Panerai, at that time, a quite hot model. The PAM 199 is a Submersible, with a dedicated case back,

Panerai PAM 790 / PAM 791: Radiomir 1940 47 mm.

I think it is an original, as the weight and quality of the steel is different from the Tudor BB. It reminded me of the steel of my old Kermit. Other tell tale signs: 1) correct serial number on rehaut and warranty (from the AD in New Zealand) 2) Proper b

Sharing a recent arrival to the Panerai stable...

Pam 1055 Verde Militare. I run on this watch unexpectedly yesterday. I confess had not paid much attention to this model when it was launched a few months ago as an Special Limited Edition of just 500 pieces available through the Panerai web site only. I

Review of 995

is that this model, as many other..modern..ones, belongs to the category: I like it, I don't like it. If you do, you buy one, if you don't you don't buy one. It's a scaled down model of an historical reference and as such a definite NO-NO for a Panerai pu

No flames , I used to be a fan

you've opened, by asking the question The short version: the bubble exploded BEFORE a new grass roots layer of Panerai lovers could be formed. In MY PERSONAL OPINION; the early days, hard core Panerai enthusiasts (the ones that used to go unearth the vint

Panerai - PAM01055

As we all probably know, Panerai have a rekindled love for the Submersible and the range has been increased further with this new limited edition of 500 pieces. Personally I like it and the “military” colour choice makes sense for Panerai. I would have pr
