I love the Zero, it's as close as i'll ever get to the magnificent 201A but quite frankly I find squeaky clean super luminova dials and pristine cases on a panerai boring (especially on a descendant to the 201A) So after reading up on fellow risti Wagner's "R"oasted zero I decided to induce some patina to mine as well.



So here it is all sealed up, tested and ready for action on a Allegrini Mark I strap...My Pam Zero with "T"oasted dial! The pics don't capture the true color but the dial has a degree of fade to it and the markers, hands and fonts are a cream color which is very close to the Pam 390 and best of all the lume still works!

By any chance do you have a before picture of the dial behind the sapphire?

Would be great to see before and after shots - if you have them. If not, no worries! But you are very impressive/brave! Could never take apart my PAM on my own. Too scary, IMHO.

Thanks for sharing! And were the "new" patina in the best of health!

I love this!

It's a brave man that bakes his Pam, but the results are brilliant.

I'd love to see my wife's face if she saw me 'cooking' my £5k watch!

Great post!

All the best

I'm glad to see that the "T"oasty dial is a crowd pleaser! Haha...ok so a little info for those who may dare:
1. I did not disassemble the watch! I enlisted the services of a trusty watchmaker who removed the dial & hands and shipped them back to me for the toasting. When that was done I sent the parts back to the watchmaker and he reassembled, timed and pressure tested the watch.
2. The process: starting at 150 degrees I placed the dial and hands on a ceramic plate and every 10 minutes I increased the temp by 50 degrees until i reached 400. I kept a watchful eye during the entire process and every 5 minutes I removed the plate for a close inspection. I'll note that there was only a slight change in color to the dial and hands below 400 degrees, once I hit the 400 mark things started to change quickly. After about 10 minutes at 400 I became a little too nervous and called it quits. Last thing I wanted was to exceed the threshold of the paint and metal and end up with bubbled-warped dial and hands.
3. I had intended to photograph the entire process but nerves got the best of me and I forgot to document the dial and hands in their original state. As I mentioned before pics do no justice, cooking your dial & hands will result in a dramatic difference so proceed with caution!

SHAKE EM' & BAKE EM' FELLAS!!!

If I had to guess, this was 400F, not 400C . . . KH
