Panerai PAM 52 Luminor Marina Chronograph Zenith El Primero Movment Limited Edition, 40 mm.
Special Edition from 1999, SUPER RARE!
Unique edition of 500 units created world wide.
This was one of the first special editions presented by the "new" Panerai company owned and operated by Richemont (the same company that ownes Cartier). There is no doubt that the styling is dynamic with its black dial and triple silver sub-dial! This dial is often referred to as a Panda dial and is very desirable. The stainless steel 40 mm case has the patented locking crown and comes on the coolest watch bracelet offered on any watch! The bracelet is made of alternating stainless steel and titanium links. The movement is also special. Although the specifications state that it has a Panerai movement, in all actuality it is a Zenith El Primero movement that has been decorated and modified to fit this case properly. The same Zenith movement is used in some of the most popular watches in the world, previously in the Rolex Daytona.
