Panerai’s first experiment with bronze. The soft warmth of the PAM00507’s patinated case and unidirectional bezel play immeasurably well against the muted green dial. Powered by Panerai’s in-house P.9002 calibre, the PAM 507 carries a 3-day power reserve that can be counted down by glancing near the 5:00 marker.
Look at the watch reminds me of a pothole of a ship. I don’t care much about that image hence I don’t find this watch esthetically pleasing to me. Sorry.
The Luminor 1950 Flyback Regatta has a special technical function of the Panerai calibre OP XIX, an automatic movement with a column wheel system controlling the chronograph functions which is termed “Flyback”. I still find it to be a macho brand its look can kill!
A well balanced GMT with a case width of 42 mm. Powered by the Eterna Calibre 3945A. If you are into changing straps, you will face some difficulties as the lug system is not standard. Nevertheless, I like the simplicity of the watch.
