    Dedicated to the tremendous support of the online community of Panerai enthusiast, the “Paneristi” founded by Guy Verbist in 2000, the PAM00634 was released in 2015 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the website. Part of the fourth edition of the celebration since PAM195, PAM360 and PAM 532, the reference is produced in a limited edition of 500 pieces offered to the most dedicated members of the community. Classic in its architecture with a touch of modern flavour of an addition of a blue OP logo, the model was the first variant to have a non PVD-coated case. Inscribed with PANERISTI.COM 15TH ANNIVERSARY on the case back, it is certainly the best gift to fans of the brand to remember the milestone by.

    The present example is numbered 266 out of 500 and is presented in absolutely like-new condition. The watch is further accompanied by the full set of accessories that was delivered with the watch when it was purchased by the original owner.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
