  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2015, the Panerai Luminor PAM 629 is one that generated a buzz at Watches and Wonders. Featuring an all-black DLC-coated titanium 47mm diameter Luminor style case, it was the firm’s first to feature the newly incorporated case materials as previous DLC-coated models were in stainless steel. Furthermore, it is also the first time that a “California” dial was featured in a Luminor case as it was previously only seen in Radiomir cases inspired from the vintage reference 3646.

    Powered by the firm’s in-house manual cal. P.3000, the movement has a power reserve of up to 3 days. Released as an exclusive limited edition of 300 pieces, the PAM 629 is with no doubt one of the highlights of the decade released by the firm. Offered in unworn new old stock condition, the present example numbered 133 is offered with its full set of accessories and is further consigned by the original owner.

  • 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.
