Pam 009

Keen to hear what PAM 009 owners on here think of the watch. I have an opportunity to buy one and wanted to know if thereís anything in particular I should be watching out for when buying a neo-vintage Panerai piece.

Thanks,

Z.

Used to own one and regret getting rid of it! The PVD will age nicely which was a plus for me! I like that the PVD when it ages looks almost like a pencil lead grey compared to the current DLC/Carbon/Ceramic watches. Are you looking at one with a tritium dial or a luminova dial?

Thanks for your feedback. Tritium dial.

Yes, Paneraiís coating from back in the day is pretty special, IMHO.
