Best of week 21: Panerai, Glashuette Original, TAG Heuer and Laco - 2019/05/25 by Dale Vito

Hi guys!

Over the past week I’ve started a much overdo update of our Glashütte Original entries – and not quite finished yet! Ruben has been working on his Laco project, while we’ve also had a few wildcards added here and there. Our favorites?

Panerai Luminor 1950 Paneristi PAM01080

Another Paneristi edition? No problem if they look as good as this one? The Pam 1080 is a limited edition of 60 pieces created for the German-speaking markets. It’s basedd on the 372 but with a cool brown dial and other subbtle tweaks. LINK!

Glashütte Original SeaQ 1969

What are your thoughts on the new SeaQ by Glashuette Original? I’m not sure yet and I’d love to see one in the metal before my final judgement! LINK!

Glashütte Original PanoLunar Tourbillon

The Pano-series is the quintessential Glashütte Original and the PanoLunar Tourbillon is one of the best – especially on this matte alligator strap. LINK!

TAG Heuer Monaco 1969-1979

The TAG Heuer Monaco CAW211V.FC646 is the first (likely of many) piece introduced in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Monaco. It’s boutique-only, limited to 169 pieces – so run! LINK!

Laco Pilot Watch Venedig

Ruben has made great steps with our Laco database. There’s so many pilot’s watches it’s hard to choose one, but I quite like this one with full-lumi dial. Not sure what the link is with Venice though? LINK!

NEW: Panerai Carbotech PAM 661, Luminor Due, and more - 2016/05/17 by Dale Vito

Panerai PAM 661 Luminor 1950 Carbotech

Panerai PAM 661 Luminor 1950 Carbotech


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.
