So, onto part 4:


Let's look at the historical luminor collection.

First up is the PAM423, which is a 47mm luminor with a power reserve indicator.

I think it's an interesting combination. I suspect some may question adding the PR to the dial, but it doesn't look bad. Just different. I suspect not all of Panerai's customers care as much as us fanatics about historical correctness or not.



Then, we have the PAM422 which was announced late last year. This model, based on the p3001 movement, is a regular production model, like the 372, but featuring a sub-seconds dial. Unlike the 372, the 422 features a power reserve indicator on the back of the watch:






As I mentioned earlier, Ceramic is coming back in a big way. The PAM441 features the arabic numeral dial (as on the PAM359) but in a ceramic case. I'm not sure I like the word 'Ceramic' on the dial. We know what it is. No disrespect to the designers but I hope that doesn't find it's way onto the final version.



The back features the smoked glass (as on the 317 and 335) to show off the movement.




Then comes the PAM438. This one is interesting. Aside from a ceramic case, it comes with an ALL CERAMIC bracelet. This is not some coated titanium or something similar, this is all ceramic (exception being the clasp). Super light and super comfortable.





The movement is PVD coated...not smoked sapphire. With the engraving in gold and a gold lettered rotor. HOT!! Price was hinted to be around $16-17k USD. But that's UNOFFICIAL.




Panerai did expand their super-complication offerings this year with a cermaic-cased tourbillon, the PAM396. Like its steel or titanium brethren, it comes in at 48mm. Like the 441, this one states 'Tourbillon' across the dial.



One small detail is instead of a lone 'dot' to represent the tourbillons movement, they've changed to a graphic to make it a bit easier to read and get a sense of the rotation. Small change but one I liked.



However, the back features a beautifully crafted movement, PVD coated like the 438 and with gold accents. Stunning!






Next up...the non-ceramic SE's....including the ones you've been waiting for...
