Avatar
foversta
Rome is a city on the move from the watchmaking point of view. In a few months, the capital of Italy has been the setting of the openings of a Rolex boutique, a Patek Philippe boutique (both operated by Hausmann, the famous Roman dealer), a Hublot boutique and therefore a Panerai boutique that I propose you to discover. This boutique is interesting from several points of view. It strengthens the presence of the brand in its mother country which is one of its important markets...Story

Panerai PAM 997: The Good Green dialed Radiomir?

Avatar
amanico
A few weeks ago, Panerai unveiled a series of Radiomir 1940 Green Dial. The two which caught my eyes are the 995 we already saw, and the 997. The PAM 995 for the record: Two very different watches, despite their green dial. The 995 is 45 mm big, 12, 2 mm high...Story

While till then Panerai Marina Militare were the apanage of the Luminor line, at the exception of the Radiomir PAM 339, we have, this year a revolution with the introduction of 2 " Marina Militare Submersible ", the PAM 961 and the PAM 979.

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

The appointment of a new CEO is never a trivial event but it takes a particular dimension at Panerai. Indeed, Angelo Bonati was replaced by Jean-Marc Pontroué a few months ago after 18 years at the head of the brand. A position with such duration necessarily leaves traces and the challenge for Jean-Marc Pontroué is to give a new dynamic, to change certain habits, to adapt Panerai to the realities of the current market while building on the strengths of the brand and its production tool. The roadmap is clear: .....Story

Hands on review of the Panerai Mare Nostrum 2017 (PAM00716)

Avatar
foversta
There are two ways to consider a new watch from Panerai when it is inspired by a mythical reference. The first one, which avoids the pitfalls, is to describe it as it is and to forget the historical context. The second one is to address the sore topic: the reaction of the collectors, owners of the original watch. And with the Mare Nostrum, this second way, which is more dangerous, is difficult to avoid because the 2017 version is extremely close (or shall I call it a clone?) to the 1993 Mare Nostrum which .....Story

Let's be clear, I don't " buy " the official explanation behind the watch, the fact that it has been introduced by the Italian Navy as a product which might be of interest for them. I don't have a verified explanation, but I always believed that the first Panerai introduced to the Italian Navy was the Ref 2533.A Rolex case and movement with a special dial. 2533: An the document...

Panerai: Hands on review of the Luminor Due collection (stainless steel)

Avatar
foversta
The year 2016 was marked for Panerai by the launch of the new Luminor Due collection. This collection, which was presented during an event organized in May in Firenze (and thus outside the context of the SIHH) plays a strategic role for the brand as it aims to expand its customer base. In fact, Panerai suffers from the defects of its qualities. It has what many market players dream of having, namely a recognizable style at first glance...Story

Equation of Time on a Panerai: well done or an absolute mistake?

Avatar
foversta
At the 2015 SIHH, Panerai unveiled a Luminor 1950 and a Radiomir 1940 with an Equation of Time display. It is obviously not the first time Panerai uses this complication since it was already displayed in the Astronomo dial several years ago. This complication provoked a lot of strong discussions between the watches fans on several media. Basically, the main criticism was the inconsistency between the complication and the purpose of the watch...Story
