Ever since the Panerai PAM00372 was released a few years ago, I have been waiting for the same watch to be released without the patented device protecting the crown.
I am thrilled to announce the day has finally come! Panerai has answered my prayers by releasing the NEW PAM00587- 1940 3 Days Militare Acciaio. This watch was originally inspired by the Rolex 6152/1 from the 1940’s which you can see above side by side the NEW Panerai PAM000587. This watch was originally made by Rolex for Panerai.
The NEW PAM00587 may be the most significant historic model that Panerai has released today. The design language transcends time . This new modern version has been executed flawlessly! The 1940 case is 47mm and made out of 316L polished stainless steel. The dial has all four iconic Panerai Arabic numerals of 12,3, 6,&9. The hands unlike the PAM00372 are pencil shaped and pay tribute to the original 6152/1 reference.
I love how symmetrical this watch is in every way. Watches should be simple and clean. This is the epitome of that. The brevet style winding crown is extremely practical because it enables the hour hand to be adjusted independently of the other hand, in jumps of one hour at a time so it doesn’t interfere with the running of the minute hand. The crystal is plexi-glass which pays respect to the historic model and a second one is supplied in the box in case you crack or scratch it.
The movement is the robust hand wound P.3000 3 Day in house Panerai movement which can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back. Finally, the watch is fitted on a brown leather strap with contrasting ecru stitching.
The NEW Panerai PAM00587 is a Special Edition of 1,000 units for the world and I can’t wait to see this watch live, try it on and photograph it. I will most definitely add this to my Panerai collection because it’s an absolute must have!
