Panerai PAM785 Special Edition Box Set

Along with all the other pieces that seem to be a big hit from this years Watches and Wonders, Panerai has released a beautiful box set that is a throwback to the historic models from Panerai past. The Panerai PAM785 Special Edition box set will consist of two models inspired by two of the most representative of pre-vendome period, originally created in 1996.

Between 1993 and 1997, Officine Panerai created only a few hundred watches which over the years have gone up in value significantly and are considered a part of the Panerai DNA. This was a time of rapid change in the Panerai collector community from a simple brand to a hot international collectors item.
