    The present watch, PAM00319, is numbered 222 out of a limited edition series of 300 watches. It is not only fitted with a split seconds mechanism, it also has an 8 day power reserve. Hefty and robust, the present watch is preserved in almost new-old-stock condition, displaying all its original contrasting satin and polished finishes.

    The rattrapante mechanism is one of the most difficult and complicated types of chronograph functions to produce, and manufactures typically make very limited numbers due to the technical difficulty of making such a model. As such, the present watch was made in very limited numbers only.

    Offered without reserve, it is furthermore accompanied by its Panerai Certificate confirming the present watch is specimen no. 222 belonging to a limited series of 300 units, additional strap, International guarantee certificate, screwdriver, polishing cloth, presentation box and outer packaging.

    Panerai

    Italian • 1860

    Known for its robust designs and large case sizes, Officine Panerai was established in 1860 by Giovanni Panerai in Florence, Italy. Around 1900, Giovanni's grandson Guido Panerai took over, and Panerai became the supplier to the Regia Marina — the Royal Italian Navy. After supplying the navy with high-precision instruments for a number of years, Officine Panerai created Radiomir, a radium-based powder that gives luminosity to the dials of sighting instruments and devices. By 1936, the Royal Italian Navy approached Panerai again with the request to design a watch resistant to extreme underwater conditions. The watch they created became known as the "Radiomir".


    Panerai's watches made during the early twentieth century era were comprised of cases designed and manufactured by Rolex SA, with Cortébert, a Swiss manufacturer, supplying the majority of their movements. The most recognizable designs from the firm are the Radiomir and Luminor. To date, vintage models from the first half of the 1900s, such as the reference 3646 and 6152 models, remain the most desirable among collectors.
