I had the opportunity to take pics of Panerai cases, crystals and dials as these look during the various stages in the production process. You have probably seen these things before, but I wanted to share the pics nonetheless because I think they're kinda cool.

The Luminor case, dial and crystal. The actual process surely has many more steps than what you can tell from this pic >



Radiomir case >



The dial in different stages >



Crystal >



The 1950 case >



The Luminor case again. I like that solid piece of steel on the left a lot >



Hope you like the pics.
Thanks.

I especially like the one where you can see the progress of machining the case. From a blank to the finished product.

Those are AWESOME snaps, Martin. Neat to know those will be making there way around the net for some time to come. Well done!

"I will have no man in my boat," said Starbuck, "who is not afraid of a whale." By this, he seemed to mean, not only that the most reliable and useful courage was that which arises from the fair estimation of the encountered peril, but that an utterly fearless man is a far more dangerous comrade than a coward. - H.
