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.
Officine Panerai launched this watch along with Ferrari’s newest launch the F149 California.The watch is going to be part of the “Ferrari Engineered by Officine Panerai” collection. It has a 60 minute scale with 5 minute intervals. The dial is designed to match the tachometer of the car between 12 o’clock and 3 o’clock section and the base of the dial has the California logo across it to add the automobile touch to it.The rotor of the watch is engraved with the trademark Ferrari ‘Prancing Horse’. This is a unique edition of only 400 pieces.
I guess if you have a Ferrari and loads of money to spare, you should get this as well for completeness. It was designed for a few and priced where only a few can afford it – elitism…..
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!
