Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 00700

Panerai LAB-ID Luminor 1950 Carbotech 3 Days PAM 00700

Material innovation is a constant theme in watchmaking, and at SIHH this year, one of the traits emerging strongly is that of black. Not so much the all-black appearance beloved by Hublot and other brands, but rather dials of an intense, velvety black that creates the perfect backdrop for hands and markings treated in SuperLuminova.…

Panerai Luminor 8 Days Set

Panerai Luminor 8 Days Set

This is a curious concept, two Panerai watches sold together as a set, at the price of €19,900. The two watches are symmetrical, one with the crown on the left-hand side of the case, the other with the crown on the right-hand side. The continuous seconds subdial is also symmetrically opposite in the two models.…

Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Acciaio 47 mm PAM00663

This watch illustrates why Panerai is a world apart from most other brands.

Panerai Radiomir 1940 3 Days Acciaio 47mm PAM00662

Panerai tells some great stories (read the top ten Panerai stories here). The Radiomir 1940 PAM00622 looks like a simple two-hand watch with a chocolate brown dial matching a vintage-look leather strap, with a lovely hand-wound 3 Hertz movement visible through the sapphire caseback. And that’s what it is, but it is also a tribute…

Panerai Radiomir 1940

These four Panerai watches, PAM00627, 628, 657 and 658, retain the brand’s classic DNA but they embrace modernity in a more consciously designer appearance. They have the functions that are most practical for a contemporary executive: power reserve indicator which is useful for a mechanical watch; and second time zone, with quick-setting hour hand. The…

Panerai PAM00634 for the Paneristi

“Panerai is a disease.” This is a comment that frequently appears on the forum paneristi.com, where Panerai enthusiasts discuss their watches, and buy and sell them. It is run independently of the brand Panerai, and, founded in September 2000 by English Panerai fan Guy Verbist, it has reached its 15th anniversary. The brand is perhaps…
