My second to last SIHH post is about two new regular production 47mm watches with similar specifications.
The 422 was announced a couple of weeks before SIHH, the 423 however was quite a surprise. I for one wasn't expecting to see a 47mm with a power reserve indicator on the dial along the lines of that of the PAM90.
Both the 422 and the 423 have a sapphire crystal. Looking at my pics I would have believed it if they told me those were plexis. Good looking watches, very suitable for daily wear - provided that you can pull off a 47mm of course

The PAM422 Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days
Case: 47mm AISI 316L polished steel
Movement: Hand-wound mechanical, Panerai P.3001 calibre, executed entirely by Panerai
Functions: hours, minutes, small seconds, power reserve indicator on the back, seconds reset
Water resistance: 100 metres
Crystal: Sapphire 3.0 mm
Back: See-through sapphire crystal

And the PAM423 Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Power Reserve
Case: 47mm AISI 316L polished steel
Movement: Hand-wound mechanical, Panerai P.3002 calibre, executed entirely by Panerai
Functions: hours, minutes, seconds, power reserve indicator, seconds reset
Water resistance: 100 metres
Crystal: Crystal 3.0 mm
Back: See-through sapphire crystal

Both watches have the case that was first introduced last year with the PAM372. The most important visual difference between the two new ones is obviously the power reserve indicator at the 4 o'clock position on the dial of the 423.
The engraving on the sandwich dials is the same as that of the 372. And so is the color that is used for the lettering. The Luminova is ecru.

First the 422...













Next, the 423 with its power reserve indicator on the dial...











And finally a shot with both watches...

423http://www.network54.com/Forum/353391/t ... VE+-+47+MM

And just for the fun of it, a few shots of the 372...

...harsh in my opinion. Many enthusiasts, many opinions.
All fine by me but you're selling it short by saying they've ruined the watch by putting a pr indicator on the dial.
Thanks for your reply though.

Yes, I have seen that display back press kit picture on the first day of SIHH, but I was hoping to see your live pictures of the display back...

No worries, Martin, thanks for the report.

Amazing pictures. As always!

Got to say I'm really digging the 422. I'm more tempted to go for it than the 372.

when I was taking the pics I was under the impression that both watches had a plexi. Later on I realized that they don't. Might be that I've been focusing too much attention on taking pictures, as opposed to paying closer attention to the watches... You have to know that OP are very cooperative, but there are constantly people waiting to see the watches. So I had more time with some models than I did with other models. These two were gone before I knew it, which is probably also why I have no case back photos.

Martin

While I'm sure that the 422 and 423 fill a niche for for many 'ristis, adding that parting shot of the 372 just reinforces the old adage, "less is more", AFAIC.

They're both great watches no doubt, but for me the 372 continues to stand alone.

Adam

I'm warming up to it too and I haven't been smoking any funny stuff... so go figure.
The 90 was my first, that might be it. Old love doesn't rust, as they say over here

My second to last SIHH post is about two new regular production 47mm watches with similar specifications.
The 422 was announced a couple of weeks before SIHH, the 423 however was quite a surprise. I for one wasn't expecting to see a 47mm with a power reserve indicator on the dial along the lines of that of the PAM90.
Both the 422 and the 423 have a sapphire crystal. Looking at my pics I would have believed it if they told me those were plexis. Good looking watches, very suitable for daily wear - provided that you can pull off a 47mm of course

The PAM422 Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days
Case: 47mm AISI 316L polished steel
Movement: Hand-wound mechanical, Panerai P.3001 calibre, executed entirely by Panerai
Functions: hours, minutes, small seconds, power reserve indicator on the back, seconds reset
Water resistance: 100 metres
Crystal: Sapphire 3.0 mm
Back: See-through sapphire crystal

And the PAM423 Luminor Marina 1950 3 Days Power Reserve
Case: 47mm AISI 316L polished steel
Movement: Hand-wound mechanical, Panerai P.3002 calibre, executed entirely by Panerai
Functions: hours, minutes, seconds, power reserve indicator, seconds reset
Water resistance: 100 metres
Crystal: Crystal 3.0 mm
Back: See-through sapphire crystal

Both watches have the case that was first introduced last year with the PAM372. The most important visual difference between the two new ones is obviously the power reserve indicator at the 4 o'clock position on the dial of the 423.
The engraving on the sandwich dials is the same as that of the 372. And so is the color that is used for the lettering. The Luminova is ecru.

First the 422...













Next, the 423 with its power reserve indicator on the dial...











And finally a shot with both watches...

And just for the fun of it, a few shots of the 372...

Impressive pics Martin.
Love the straps. Did you get any information about them? Not as padded as the Assolutamente, right?

When I wear my 372 I have got little hairlines all across the plexi, while this doesnt bother me many times, it bothers me when I take pictures of the watch and cant get a perfect view of the dial.

422 - Love the PR on the back, LOVE it, wish the 372 had it, and the added benefit of the sapphire, is the height the same as the 372 plexi?

423 - No comment...

when I was taking the pics I was under the impression that both watches had a plexi. Later on I realized that they don't. Might be that I've been focusing too much attention on taking pictures, as opposed to paying closer attention to the watches... You have to know that OP are very cooperative, but there are constantly people waiting to see the watches. So I had more time with some models than I did with other models. These two were gone before I knew it, which is probably also why I have no case back photos.
Cheers,
Martin

the reason I ask is that IF someone as knowledgeable as you can't tell the difference between sapphire and plexi unless being told (albeit you didn't spend much time on it), then why would Panerai put a plexi on 372 IF someone can't tell the difference unless being told?

I mean, I do understand the reason behind it, it's more historically correct, of course, but I believe these historically enthuasists are looking more on the looks of the vintage PAM, how it looks as close as the vintage as much as possible, so if both crystal have the same looks and feel, sapphire is more durable and more scratch resistant vs plexi. DNA is DNA, I get it, but unless there is a substantial difference in looks and feel between sapphire vs plexi, I would always opt for the modern and more durable solution for a $10k watch if I am selling a watch.

If you are a dealer and selling 372 to a regular Joe and marketed that Panerai is a tool watch, you as a dealer do not want people come back to your shop and complain that the crystal 'scratch', and especially since 372 is a regular production watch. If it's an SE, then yes like 249/448/449, it's more targeted toward enthusiasts and again, I understand the reason, but going plexi for a regular watch, I think it's not a wise move.

Just my opinion.
