Officine Panerai’s latest beauty pays homage to the historic link between Panerai and the Italian Navy. Utilizing Panerai’s own hand wound Officine Panerai P.2002/7 Calibre movement with robust 8-day power reserve, the PAM 339 features a new electrochemical ceramized aluminum casing that renders the case harder than standard ceramic (harder than steel, lighter than titanium) and waterproof to 100 meters, and a matching vintage leather strap. A “sandwich” style electroluminescent dial (like the PAM 111) is protected by a 1.9mm sapphire crystal with AR coating. Limited to 1,000 units, waiting lists are already long. But hey, here’s to Lady Luck and a big refund from Uncle Sam.
