Description

The PAM 008 Mare Nostrum is a watch that is said to be based on a prototype of an officers type watch made by Panerai in the 1940's. The PAM 008 is similar to the Pre-Vendome 5218-301A models, though now assigned with a reference number as per the Vendome / Richemont era Panerai's.

The PAM 008 has a black dial, while the PAM 007 has a white dial and the PAM 006 a blue dial.

Caliber 2801 is fitted with a chronograph module by Dubois-Depraz (3127) to become a chronograph.
