I bought my first PAM in 2001. It was difficult to get certain models. LEs announced in Spring would take 9-12 months or longer to come out. The brand was a fireball. Most everything sold near retail. Then all the "re-editions", OOR series, saying a watch
1/ Panerai had a lot of fans in the early 2000's, the vintage and the pre vendome pieces were very hot, sought after, and people was fighting to get one, even the early Vendome pieces, since around 2005, let's say. 2/ From the mid 2000's to nowadays, two
721...720, 210,232.... A 372 with its crown guard it actually already a third generation watch to me. But it’s what most people connect today with Panerai so it’s meets maybe the requirement of : modern.
Historical Panerai 6152/1 (right on your photo) was equipped with Rolex movements having just two hands and case with shard case edges. Its modern interpretations are 372, 663, 605 etc. Modification of Panerai 6152/1-A was equipped with Angelus movements
This case type in the 6152/1 family was used for Rolex movement (without second hand). Angelus (with second hand) was set in cases having rounded sides like one for Fiddy 127. Just wondering, why your initiative team decided on such a mixed construction ?
