Panerai athlete

Unlike some watch brands, Panerai does not have many pieces endorsed by, or for, athletes and celebrities. Mike Horn is someone they have sponsored for years.....cool read here. I realize this is more of an advertisement, but cool read regardless.

Good read.

Lucky he had a bracelet on that Pam when he ran out of pitons.

Is there a video of this incident?

I had a chance to meet him last week in Singapore, got an invite via Mazlan Hassan (senior sales advisor) at Officine Panerai Boutique... unfortunately
I had a prior dinner engagement - with some members of the narcotics bureau of the Singapore Police - so I couldn't attend...pity as it would have been an interesting evening.

cheers
