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

🤦🏿‍♂️🤦🏿‍♂️🤦🏿‍♂️🤦🏿‍♂️ Oh, and run just [magically] mushroomed from 388 to 500. This message has been edited by India Whiskey Charlie on 2021-08-25 14:06:27

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 It's a scaled down model of an historical reference and as such a definite NO-NO for a Panerai pu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

A blast from the Past: Panerai Pre Vendome 5218-203/A.

of which there are 500 to 600 tops, the Pre-V are the...historical...ones. Somewhat "historical" are also the Pre-A (produced in 1997, year of the purchase from Vendome, but with all left over materials and components from Panerai) Of all the historical,

white dial and blue indices / numbers .... a combo you never see

Inspiration was the 1993 - 1995 SLYTECH DAYLIGHT 5218-207/A. A watch of which only 4 exist. Sylvester Stallone ordered 41 of these but at the ende did not like the blue and returned 37 of them back to Panerai asking to change the dial into one with black

Hands on review of the Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 days Acciaio PAM790 & PAM791

This is Panerai reinventing itself half-baked IMO. The Rad 40mm case is just too big for a creamy art deco dial, making the watch even looks larger, hence, not correctly targeted to the intended segment of new customers with smaller wrist size (maybe the
