  • Catalogue Essay

    Released simultaneously together with the PAM 606 in 2014, the PAM 608 Luminor Marina 1950 was also made exclusively as a limited edition of 100 pieces for the Hong Kong market. Featuring a 44mm diameter Luminor Marina style stainless steel case, the dial displays small seconds and a date feature against a brownish dial with fauxtina enhancing its vintage appeal. While the PAM 606 is powered by the firm’s manual cal. P.3000, the PAM 608 features the firm’s self-winding cal. P.9000 also with a 3 day power reserve. The crown guards are also further engraved with “HONG KONG” just like its manual counterpart.

    Consigned by the original owner the present example is also numbered 3 and was purchased on the same day as the PAM 606 (lot 876). Never worn and accompanied by its full set of accessories, it is a perfect opportunity for keen collectors to acquire both with the same limited edition number.

  • Artist Biography


    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.
