did the PAM111, 112, 113 and 114 get the larger 'Slytech' crown guards in G series or were they only introduced in H together with the sandwhich dial and new Cotes de Geneva finish on the movement.

Essentially are G series historics 'transitional'?


TIA




There's life in the old dog yet!!!!

The new brushed CG was introduced in "G", while the sandwich, CdG and buckle were introduced in "H". I would say 'transitional' only if one of those 'new' features appears in a year outside this?

Cheers and best from the holyland,

IMO, the G series are the cat's meow (how old is that guy?) in the historic line up in recent years. When the larger crown guards were added to the painted dials you had the nicest historic updating to the line thus far.

Tritium was no longer an option and the Panerai name was proudly displayed, possibly to excess, on the movement's engraving.

Not a transition in the historic line but an update with a solid acknowledgement to the past. I have owned and now miss a 111, 112 and 115 G series for just these subtle nuances.

So the G series historics had the painted dials, old decorated 'PaneraiPanerai' movement plus the large Slytech CG.

Transitional instant SE's IMHO

The large brushed SS CG's where introduced somewhere in 1992-1993 with the introduction of the Panerai 5218-201/A, long before the Slytech's Luminor's where introduced. The Slytech's Luminor's 5218-205/A and 5218-207/A where introduced in 1995 and 1996 respectively, so the Slytech's did not bring these CG's as something new to the table. So imho these CG's should not be referred to as Slytech CG's.

Further more the G-series CG's are not the same as the original PreV CG's, they merely take from the designs of the original PreV CG's. A more accurate description would be a PreV styled CG or a G-series CG not a Slytech CG or PreV CG.
