Yesterday, September 25, 2013, it was officially announced at Watches & Wonders in Hong Kong that Panerai will be releasing the PAM00532 Paneristi Forever Watch. This watch will be released to signify the long standing union between Panerai and their biggest supporters in the world. Paneristi.
The PAM00532 is a special edition Radiomir 47mm 3 Days 1940 steel case hard coated in black DLC with the inscription Paneristi Forever engraved on the back. The dial is a black sandwich dial with the numerals of 12, 3 and 6 and a sub-second hand at the 9 o’clock position. The movement is a P.3000 in-house Panerai movement, it’s water resistant to 100 meters and is fitted on an aged brown assolomente strap with contrasting white stitching.
This watch is limited to 500 units for the world and will be impossible to get as their is already a giant waiting list.
Personally, I like this watch, except for the fact that is has a torpedo above the six and a sub-second hand at nine o’clock position, but hey, it’s not my party.
This incredible gesture and commitment to Panerai’s most loyal following is one of the main reasons why Panerai is the cult watch brand to own
