... was taken from a well known photo showing a vintage Panerai watch (a 6152, if I remember correctly) with a strap mounted showing a 74 in the exact location. Now, as far as what the significance of the actual number ..... I'm not sure.

That's all I got.....and I'm sure I'm wrong some how?

HAGWE!!

written on the strap. The legendary "74" is known
on a Ref. 6152/1 watch with Angelus movement, which
is part of the Panerai museum collection:



This watch is featured in many publications of Panerai.
I saw it for the first time in 2007 during the exhibition in Florence...
I cant believe that this is already 5 years ago...!

Other matriculation numbers are known aside the "74". Some
are written on watch straps, but there are also other instruments
like compasses or depth gauges which have such a matriculation number.

Cheers,
Volker
