Limited ediition of 1’500 numerated examples.
These two books represent the most complete reference work ever done on PANERAI.
Mario Paci, collector and true lover of Panerai, wrote the first volume and makes in this book a distinction between VINTAGE WATCHES (from 1936 to 1990) and PRE-V WATCHES (from 1993 to 1997) and describes the main models of both periods.
Between the various watches we can find:
– RADIOMIR 2533
– RADIOMIR 3646
– LUMINOR 6152 e 6152/1
– 6152 WATCH WITH ROLEX DIAL
– MARE NOSTRUM PROTOTYPE
– EGIZIANO 2/56
– EGIZIANO PICCOLO 6154
– DOPPIA LEVA
– SLYTECH PANERAI
– LUMINOR MARINA MILITARE
And many more…
Serial numbers of the watches are listed and one chapter is entirely dedicated to the prestigious CLUB PANERAI.
The second volume “Panerai in Florence – 150 years of history ” was written by Dino Zei, a Navy Officer “on loan” to the industry who established Officine Panerai in 1972 and managed it for thirty years,
He has gathered and told a collection of news, including much hitherto unknown information, of valuable data of interesting notes and considerations and of intriguing episodes.
This book tells the 150-year story of Panerai. A story of hard-working, courageous, often ingenious men who set up a company and then gradually developed and enriched it with technologies and traditions.
These 780 pages allow the collector to have a complete and deep vision of the production of this prestigious and historical brand which represents nowadays an icon not only in the watches field but in the fashion industry as well. Many actors and celebrities in fact appeared with a Panerai watch at their wrist (i.e. Silvester Stallone, Demi Moore, Bruce Willis, Sharon Stone, Carol Alt, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Gabriel Batistuta, Alessandro Costacurta and Alberto Tomba).
Water Resistance - Although we may pressure test a watch prior to being shipped, we do not guarantee any watch to be waterproof and do not cover any water issues under any type of warranty. The reason is because there are too many life factors that can contribute to a watch not being water resistant anymore. Statistically, this applies to even the most careful of watch wearers ...show moreshow less
Box and Papers - All box and papers do is guarantee the box and papers are authentic. The bad guys know that people put trust into original papers so by putting genuine papers with a fake watch allows them to pull off a scam...and when the buyer finds out down the road the watch was fake, the scammer is long gone. The only way to check authenticity is by having the watch checked. As with most preowned watches, the original box and/or papers are not available because they were not retained by the original owner. ...show moreshow less
