From scrap metal to LIFE. Love the results. How could those parts possibly work in the movement? Dial is amazing! Master watch maker for sure.

My Pam knowledge isn't nearly enough to know what this is.

My gut tells me it's beautiful.

The fact that it's on Hammer tells me it's ultra rare and special.

Can someone help me out with what to type into the Google machine to figure out this majestic beast??

Thanks in advance

Wow! The case and dial appear to be in excellent conditions! If you need more donors for the 618, please let me know I may have a broken 616 somewhere ...

Taken by my maatje and el supreme master of images Martin >>>

Working perfectly now >>>





Front and Center >>>



The entire journey will come soon >>>



And now look what is on my bench >>> This would be the cannon pinion and hands >>>



It’s like I’ve been here before >>>











Before >>>





After hand clean ONLY >>>





Wait till you see after the RM clean you could eat off it albeit better be small noodles 🍝

Now we’ll over 100 hours to hand clean every part so perfectly so I could run through the final finish machine RM60 but I was turned away from the RM machine 3 times becuase the parts were still not clean enough - the RM has like a carousel of buckets & baskets that get dunked in various fluids + agitation and moved through different fluid then they ascend and turn and dunk in the next so dirty parts would mean @6 lots of fluids would need to be replaced - even when on the 3rd Time I needed a 3X loupe to see even a macro dot of dirt but finally all by hand my mate let me use his RM60 and finally the parts are ready clean and about too start the fun stuff - trying hard to forget all the hurdles like like broken screws broken parts busted pivots rusted pinions and arbors etcetera etcetera can’t wait to rebuild 👌👌👌

This was first time apart >>>



Well another year long resto but when you can take something so treasured and bring back to life with function it’s a feeling indescribable when the first time I see the balance wheel spin and the pallet fork tick I’ll be one happy Chappy u bet 🇦🇺♿️🙏🏻👌🤗
Ohhhh So Much MORE than just a Watch 🤩 it’s the mates behind the Watch & the “Mateships” we create that simply Blows me “Away” ❤️

Thank you for showing us the pictures. It's amazing how you could bring the life of this gem back.

"...when the first time I see the balance wheel spin and the pallet fork tick I’ll be one happy Chappy u bet" It must be so rewarding to have this experience especially with this watch.

Thank you so much for the pictures, sir!

Did not know that Panerai had in the past "closed 6 & 9's" on the dials, I always thought the vintage piece, 3646 and 6152 always came with those types of dials....
I'had have to go back to Mr. Volker's books (References ) and take a closer look, I must have missed it.
Do you know if the watch spent some time at the bottom of the Ocean?
Fantastic restoration by the way

Best,
