Luminor "Pre-Daylight" Chronograph Watch
Gently used, no dings or major scratches, but some slight signs of wear around the bezel from previous wear. Very clean overall condition though.
In terms of it's historical significance, the PAM 162 is actually the 1st 44mm Chronograph Panerai ever produced. It is the predecessor to the modern Daylight Chronograph models and is preferable to most collectors who do not wish to associate with the branding on the newer versions.
The major feature that sets it apart from newer Daylight chrono's is the super desirable "Anthracite" colored sub dials on the face. Anthracite teeters between shiny black and silverish grey. It has the unique quality of amplifying whatever color it is paired with depending on how the light hits it. Band colors should be picked accordingly. Only 1500 pieces exist and the watch was produced for one year. Please feel free to let us know if you have any other questions about the timepiece.
Panerai no longer produces antracite dials at all. They are quite beautiful and have the ability to change color depending on which angle you look at it. The nice thing about this specific model is that the dial has already started to age and show a nice even vanilla patina setting it apart from many of the other ones you may see out there for sale. Inspect closely. It comes with its original box and accessories as pictured in the listing, but not the original paper work.
It is quite clean given its age, and is priced accordingly. The watch has been opened, serviced, and authenticated too. An appraisal can be provided upon request for authentication/resale purposes.
Max Wrist Size: 8.0 inches
Known for their over-sized, yet refined case design, Panerai enjoys the
strongest “cult following” out of any watch brand currently on the
Founded in 1860, Panerai watches were originally created
for the Italian Naval forces. Staying true to form, Panerai has embraced
their original designs and created a loyal fan base of “Paneristi’s” in
the process These fans appreciate and are drawn to the durable yet
simple elegance of these watches.
Due to their limited production, Panerai is one of the most exclusive watch brands on the market today and generally receive very small discounts. Many of the pieces actually sell for over retail value due to their short supply and high demand.
