Panerai PAM 217 Destro Marina Militare Special Edition 47 mm.
Excellent condition with box and papers.
This is a very unique and collectible Panerai special edition watch! It has a large 47 mm stainless steel case with the patented Panerai locking crown mechanism on the left side of the watch making it a unique DESTRO model. The black two layer sandwich dial and gold colored hands along with a small sub second hand at 3 o'clock have a dynamic appearance! You will also find the words "Marina Militare" on the dial just under the 12 o'clock marker. Only a few very special Panerai watches have this insignia and all are very collectible! Marina Militare pays homage to the select Italian navy divers in WWII. You will also enjoy the see through exhibition see through case back where you can see the decorated movement. It has a durable and reliable mechanical hand wind movement. This is a watch you will enjoy winding and then wearing! The watch comes in it's original large pearwood presentation box, with parchment scrolls, extra burgundy calf strap and papers.
The only flaw this watch has is that the case back has been polished and a relatively unimportant number has been erased. Every PAM 217 has a number showing which number of 1000 belongs to that unit. So you will see the numbers XXX/1000. On this watch, the 1000 has been erased but the number of the unit, is visible. All numbers on the back of the watch, papers and parchment scroll match and are visible. All important numbers are intact. The watch comes in it's original large pearwood presentation box, with parchment scrolls, extra burgundy calf strap and papers.
