Panerai was known for being a 'tool' company just as much, if not more than being a watch company. The tools made by Panerai over the years display design, functionality and inguinity and we would like to have the opportunity to display and discuss them as well. We will be selecting a weekly category and we would welcome contribution by pics and information. If you have similar or other variations, original boxes, instruction manuals or any other information, we would appreciate sharing those with the rest of us

To get things started, this week's topic is the compass. Looking forward to read your responses...




Cheers and best from the holyland,

But now the haze has ascended
It don't make no sense anymore'

A nice and odd view. I do like the subject. As you say we often forget that Panerai was about tools and not so much watches.
Cheers,
Germán

.. Everytime I see something vintage right click and save to my hard drive...
And that's from 2006.. So keeping track unless it is something I remember is impossible.
But I will upload them and if anyone has any problem I will delete them.

Wish I could make it yesterday my friend.. I love our Christmas meals :-/

Well, another one we got only very little information is this one from the era of the 3646. At least we take it that's the right time frame for this one. As far I know, only three pieces popped up right now. One of them is written OFFICINE PANERAI on the back. Both others were found in Italy, I found mine in Germany last year. I didn't had the time until now to give it to restauration but possibly another fellow German could help with pics of one of the other both...better condition there. But anyway just enjoy and dont hesitate to ask any question you may have. I'll check on the piece or take other pictures.

...I got three of them, two usual like the known pieces and one of abosutely the same construction but different dial. The most interseting thing on the dail is that's written "Marseille" on it, like you can easily see on that lousy pic below...any thoughts???

All the best,
Hagen

Just wished I could justify buying one, maybe I need the boat first but I think this was a very smart release by OP. Interesting to compare this to the vintage models.
