PANERAI PAM 373
History buffs and military men will swoon for these sleek pieces
Panerai watches were originally developed as utilitarian navy and diving watches. With the Panerai PAM 373, the illustrious company honors this heritage, encasing it in a luxurious package fit for the modern watch aficionado. The sculpted Radiomir case, made of platinum, is a massive 47 mm and has a sapphire crystal exhibition back through which to view the Caliber P 3000 three-day movement. The chocolate-colored dial is a classic “sandwich” dial with a lower layer for the signature and luminous dots. Only 300 of the PAM 373 will be made ($48,000).
