In a surprise move, Panerai just introduced a number of new and upgraded watches – including a completely new family (Luminor Due) and its second Carbotech watch.

The new Luminor Due collection mixes signature Luminor elements with the sleeker looks of the Radiomir 1940 collection, resulting in a watch that is slimmer than most -if not all- other Panerai’s with the crown guard. For now, Luminor Due holds for watches: PAM 674, 675, 676 and 677 – just click the references for more information and prices.

The latest Carbotech is the PAM 661. The 2015 version of Panerai’s Carbotech had the Luminor Submersible style case, which features an external rotating bezel. The new version has the classic Luminor 1950 case, yet it is still fitted with the Submersible style dial. Find out more details -including price- right here.

Discontinued are the 499, 312 and 359 – they’re newer versions are the 1499, 1312 and 1359. The movement is updated from P.9000 to P.9010, the case is slimmer and the seconds hand is done in a vibrant blue.

Last but not least, Panerai also introduces the PAM 672. Shamelessly similar to the earlier PAM 604, the watch now also features a (laser-) engraved movement.

 


Panerai Boutique Edition – The Luminor Marina Casebacks - 2015/04/01 by Dale Vito

You’ve probably noticed that we’ve been busy with our Panerai section. Alwin and his team set up a perfect framework for me to fill in the final details. As such, we’ve been able to make some giant leaps – although there is still much work to be done.

One project we’ve completed for now is a complete list of the Panerai Boutique Editions. Above you’ve seen an overview of the casebacks of the Panerai Luminor Marina models and I’ve split them down in groups of six below. The order is more or less alphabetical. All of them feature a sibling in either Luminor 1950 or Radiomir form – some of them even both.

Quick personal opinion – winners for me based on imagery are the Saudi Arabia, the Las Vegas, the Muscat and the New York editions. The Middle Eastern ones remind me of the vintage Rolex models created by special order for these countries, their military branches and their dignitaries and to me, some of the Rolex cool rubs off on these Panerai’s. The Las Vegas and New York editions are just plain cool.

The list is complete for now – but please mind that it does not feature boutique specials like the Hong Kong PAM 606 or models like the Firenze Daylight, GMT and Automatic – the latter three are listed as Special Editions rather than Boutique Editions. But whatever. I have split down the full list of ‘Pig Dial’ Luminor Marina Boutique Editions line by line below. For more info, just click the links and you’ll be directed to their respective pages.

Oh, and if you come across any info that is not correct, please use the contact form – corrections are very much appreciated. And yes, they all look the same from the front – here’s a pic just so you know ;)

Panerai & the protective cover – our list so far - 2015/03/28 by Dale Vito

Have you seen our work on the Panerai section yet? We’re busy uploading ALL references ever made, which should be done in a few weeks if all goes well.

Pictured above is a compilation of the models with protective cover over the sapphire – at least, the ones we’ve uploaded thus far. Most notably missing are the ‘Chinese’ models like the PAM 840 and 842, but otherwise, its fairly complete. Somewhat unusual, I quite like them – weird but wonderful.

The first one was the 2002 Luminor Blackseal PAM 76, a limited edition of 300 pieces. The same year the first Luminor Sealand for Purdey were released (100 pieces), with the PAM 152 Lion, the PAM 153 Bird, the PAM 154 Four Birds and the PAM 155 Flowers.

In 2004, a second series of Panerai for Purdey models was introduced. These included the PAM 813 Tiger, the PAM 814 Elephant and the PAM 815 Lion. In 2005 the PAM 216 Jules Verne was introduced, with a dial resembling the Submersible models hidden under a lid with Jules Verne engraving. The same year a third series of Purdey models was created, including the PAM 816 Lion, the PAM 817 Eagle and the PAM 818 Hawk.

In 2007 a final series of Purdey models was made. The PAM 831 featured a lion engraved to its cover, the PAM 832 had featured an elephant and the 833 last but not least found itself with a buffalo on the lid.

Take a look at their pages to see the dials – most of them feature a picture of the watches with the lid open.
