Well, almost everybody's talking about hands lenght and dimensions...to have some hard facts, I just took some comparison shots...so you can draw your own conclusions.

Thanks Hagen, enjoyed this post very much.

BTW, what importance do you place on the condition and indeed existence of 'correct' hands on a vintage Panerai ? this is a loaded question as I am thinking about a recent vintage Panerai listed for auction that had modified hands (they looked terrible IM)).

Would you think the absence of original hands changes the 'completeness' of the watch ?

Would you think it is OK for an owner of such a watch to swap the hands for more 'correct' hands ?

For clarification, I have no interest in acquiring any such piece, just interested in how important hands are to vintage panerai.

I just want to believe everything is perfect on a 249 and it was put together by multiple Swedish bikinimodels

Thanks for sharing... still trying to decide if long but thin is better than short but stocky

Even an old dog like me is learning a lot - I like

Only thing I wish you could do now, is to turn back time so I could pick up that 209/a I passed up on before












That's how we roll...

...elaborate on your comment some more (or mine below).

But for me, it appears that Panerai applied a "tinted/yellowed" laquer first, then had to go back and "paint" the lume on the underside.

Why I believe this - is that the Lume from the top is "yellowed/aged", but if you look from the bottom it is "white".

Also, if you look closely, it looks like there is a curved edge of the laquer near the pinion hole.

The first application of paint gets spread evenly due to capillary action.

The second application would have to be done "free hand", thus being shaky or sloppy.

Would love to learn more.

Sincerely,

Johnny Mac

Thanks for posting these! I'd love to see a comparison with the 372's hands, because I'm convinced they're too short.
