Panerai reference 911. This one was offered to me just before Angelo Bonati retired. It’s very special to me for a lot of reasons. Have a wonderful day everybody. Thanks for looking, T.

I was in love with this brand for a while. You may have noticed the "AB" engraving for Angelo Bonati.

Dr Bonati took the brand from the catacombs and made it all the way to...main street. So my hat off to the man. During his tenure, he had to make some decisions that turned out to be less than popular with the grassroot Paneristi. As a top executive of th...

I met him in person, 3 times. Two during Florence boutique's functions, in the shop. One when I attended the gala presentation of the new Panerai 2 model. In that occasion I actually asked him to "swap" watches. He gave me his Panerai 2 and I gave him the...

Not Triestina.....

as a matter of fact I've never known where she was actually born. She was an orphan and grew up in an orphanage in Venice. back in those days (end 1800/beg 1900) records were sketchy to say the least (or so I was told)...

And yes, the Regno Lombardo–Veneto was an union of Lombardy and Venetia and formed after the Congress of Vienna in 1815. It was a country within the Austrian Empire for a short time (almost 50 years). I notice this every time I walk through Milan and noti...

From time to time I've also had a slight suspicion with other brands that someone who is passionately interested might know more than the management. Or be more passionate. Or maybe they're deliberately not giving you an adequate answer? 😎

That's so cool!

Very special watch...sweet dreams 911 until you are awaken again!
