Great Panerai Vid

Who else has checked out WatchAdvisor's video on YouTube ? Very, very impressive. I've lost some faith in Panerai over the last few years, but this video gives me a sense of reemergence ! :) Go 00968!!

It is a great video. Probably the best behind the scenes Panerai video to date.

The video is great. Panerai is frustrating as a brand. There are really fantastic offerings in their lineup as well as a ton of bloat and overpriced models. If they could just streamline the models, cut out 50% of what they are offering, and give the regular production models more of the quality and subtle perks you get with the litany of special edition releases I think they'd be back on track.

Panerai has always been focused on extremely high manufacturing and attention to detail. You should see all that goes into producing the Carbotech models. The Carbotech crown guard alone is incredibly labor-intensive.

The only difference is now the commodity brokers have left Panerai and are now picking the bones of Rolex. They are pissed at Panerai because they can’t make money on it anymore and there lies the root of the Panerai hate.


Panerai is trying a multi tiered price point offerings from DUE on up. The top tier Panerai watches have always been spectacular and at the top of their field. The Due line gives the haters and commodity brokers something to point at to generalize the entire Panerai brand.

It’s ridiculous, I’m not gonna hate and say Mercedes-Benz lost its way by offering a C class if you really are a S class customer.

Then the uneducated Panerai hater brings up movements. Let’s talk about the new thinner all in-house P.9010 calibre, entirely developed and created by Panerai manufactured in Neuch‚tel. I’ll put this movement up against anything from the competition. Dual barrel 80hour power reserve, twin support bridge, etc...

Most of these knucklehead haters are not experienced enough to even know why and what makes a superior automatic movement.

I get that a lot of people don’t like the Panerai look or even understand the look. It’s not a mainstream targeted watch. It never has been. Panerai is a enthusiast brand and I hope it stays that way.

I just came back from Europe and I had to go and visit the boutique in Florence. To feel the history of panerai. And they made the wax from Mr. Panerai himself sitting in his office back in the day. Very cool tour. And also received a passport.

Very nice. The boats are a nice touch.

Last time I was there, I took an electric bike from the sea to the top of that hill.... good fun! Wouldnít want to have to pedal the whole way. Beautiful place.

Thanks for sharing the video it is awesome!!! I was in that factory earlier this year and they wouldn’t let me take photos or videos of their manufacturing process and then this guy takes a super detailed video of the process... LOL.
