10 years ago, the best watch magazine in the world was born, known as Revoltion Magazine. This magazine was launched out of Singapore and blew the doors off of conventional watch magazines and changed the horological landscape forever.
With their cutting edge photo content, authentic voice and exclusive distribution, Revolution Magazine very quickly became the benchmark of watch publications the world over!
To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Revolution Magazine, Panerai has released the PAM00599-– LUMINOR MARINA 8 DAYS SPECIAL EDITION FOR REVOLUTION MAGAZINE limited to 50 pieces for the world.
This watch is 44 mm in case size and constructed out of stainless steel with DLC coating. The dial is the classic Luminor Marina dial with the sub-seconds hand at the 9 o’clock position, Arabic numerals 12,3 & 6 and indices in-between.
The movement is the in house NEW P.5000 8 day hand wound movement completely manufactured by Panerai.
The case back is solid with “10° ANNIVERSARIO REVOLUTION” engraved. The watch is fitted on a black assolomente strap and will retail for $10,800.
These watches will be exclusively sold through the Panerai Boutique in Singapore and an additional watch will be auctioned as part of Sotheby’s “Important Watches” event in Hong Kong in April 2015. The proceeds from the watch, numbered “0/50” will go to support the Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association in the name of Alan Bloore (aka Hammer), a devoted Panerai collector whose own boating accident and resulting paralysis played a role in his discovery of Panerai and its collector community.
I would like to congratulate Revolution Magazine for their incredible commitment and contribution to the horological sphere and the celebration of their 10th anniversary.
