Panerai Masterpieces in 2011

Panerai surprises every year, in 2011, besides the in-hourse 3-day P.3000 movement(probably will replace ETA 6497 in the future), Panerai continuously publishes new watches that are made of COMPOSITE and CERAMIC and first uses Bronze.

The most attractive model in this year is the PAM 372 LUMINOR 1950 3 DAYS, its appearance, sandwich dial and hands all reproduce from the classic vintage Panerai watch - 6152, which was very hot at that time although being imitated by RXW. PAM 372 is 47mm in diameter, it is one of the polished Panerai watches that I most appreciate, satin-finished crown bridge and 3mm thick acrylic glass show repect to the original model. PAM 372 LUMINOR 1950 3 DAYS equips with P.3000 movement, which features two barrels and has 160 components, 21 jewels, 21600 alternations/hour, the watch uses sapphire crystal case back and can be water resistance to 100m. The price is about €7,600, the watch is classified into HISTORIC, fortunately, it is not a limited edition.

PAM 373 RADIOMIR 3 DAYS PLATINO: Last year, I used to think were there any HISTORIC Models that Panerai hasn't made, I get the answer in this year, Panerai unexpectedly reproduces a test item. In those days, Rolex designed California Dial for Panerai, later supplied this type of dial, but whether the California Dial, or this one, they all had poor definition under water, Rolex took this unadopted design and modified it to use as the dial of SUBMARINER. PAM 373 features Platinum case, still uses P.3000 movement, 2.8mm acrylic galss, sapphire crystal case back, 100m water resistant. The watch is limited in a number of 199, the price is around €31800.
