If you’re into Panerai, you’ll surely realize that this isn’t the primary present day Mare Nostrum made by the Officine. Back at the Pre-Vendome times, Panerai delivered a ‘tiny’ 42mm release (made in 1993) under the references PAM006 (blue dial), PAM007 (white dial) and PAM008 (dark dial). Another edition was presented at the 2010 SIHH, reference PAM300 , and almost indistinguishable from the first models. 99 where had and the lone effect with the first one is the development. Where the first housed an Angelus 215 manual breeze chronograph development, the advanced restricted release PAM300 is controlled by Panerai’s OP XXV development, which depends on a Minerva development with similar capacities as the Angelus.
The Panerai Mare Nostrum Titanio 52mm has the reference PAM00603 and it is water-impervious to 3 bars (a profundity of around 30 metros). Obviously, we don’t need to make reference to that on the wrist, it is large, huge. Cost for this select watch is 37.000 Euros.
