<h2>Today, we are in January …........................................................ 2000</h2>

Please reply as if we were in 2000, 2001 doesen't exist, many reference either ( that include the 47mm, the faux patina etc … )


I'm just back from Geneva and had the chance to visit the SIHH, spent some time on the Panerai stand and to saw the new models.

We are in the C series.

This year 2000 marks the disapperance of the PVD cases but it marks the apperance of four new models with a titanium case. It is the year of the Radiomir too with for the first time the avaibility of one in the contemporary collection ( Pam 062 ) and two in the special editions ( Pam 065 & 067 ) plus some diamond editions available upon request. For those who find the 44mm too big, the range of the 40mm has been expanded too.

Regarding the new Pam 062, for the SIHH's 10th birthday, the Radiomir returns to the Panerai range : The legend is born again. The new Panerai Radiomir is positioned in the high segment of the market, it opens Panerai's world to both men and women who love active wear, sporting and elegant.

One Luminor seal extreme, the reference Pam 064, with a water-resistance tested of 1000 meters is the star of the sport watches of this SIHH 2000.

The new Luminor GMT Pam 063 replaces two previous models, it have one black dial with 24-hour indication on the outer part of the dial and carry now the traditional plin Panerai bezel in polished steel.

Some Precious Fine Watchmaking Officine Panerai's Diamonds in the Special Edition range seems available upon request only. According to the Panerai staff, regardind these models The legend becomes a gem and the watch of heroes is transformed as a tribute to ladies. With Officine Panerai's diamonds the strength of steel, the sober elegance of white gold, and the powerful construction of the case are associated with the elegance and sophistication of diamonds. Only a few are being made for the public at large and only to order.

It seems that the tritium will be used only in the submersible's dials …....

As said above, the titanium is the star of this Panerai SIHH. There are now in the catalog 5 models in the titanium range, Panerai is the only brand in the luxury / sports segment with 5 models in titanium and 2 in titanium and steel, according to one member of the staff present it is A new way of presenting luxury watches in a high-tech contemporary material. The titanium is an ultra-light material, 100% resistant to the corosion, hypoallergenic and non-magnetic, it have a resistance to tension more than 20% greater than other metals commonly used in watchmaking, It is also for the officine A legitimisation of the military origins of Panerai.

The watches out of the collection this year are :

not sure this big watch craze will last.

I cannot afford even one model as my son is under 1 years old, born Feb 1999 - so no money : (((

But if I could it would be that Zerograph - I really do not like those simple models, I think they call them Base, no? Who wants such a simple, basic watch??

The Pam 64 is waaaaaay too big at 44mm, makes my Rolex Submariner look like King Kong m8.

Oh well, at least 44mm is as big as watch cases can get, can you imagine a bigger one - crazeeeee.

Personally I would love to see more 40mm Panerai models : )) so that they are easier to wear!

You have a good time machine so I'll play along.

But, seriously, they need to come out with a moonphase!

I like the addition of the Titanium models, the 44mm steel watches are way too heavy for a normal person to wear. Plus it's more durable than the PVD.

I was waiting for an affordable (stainless steel) Radiomir. That almost happened in 2002 with the 141, but really it wasn't until 2004? That the 183/210's became the first true ss historic Rads.

<h2>Today, we are in January …........................................................ 2000</h2>

Please reply as if we were in 2000, 2001 doesen't exist, many reference either ( that include the 47mm, the faux patina etc … )


I'm just back from Geneva and had the chance to visit the SIHH, spent some time on the Panerai stand and to saw the new models.

We are in the C series.

This year 2000 marks the disapperance of the PVD cases but it marks the apperance of four new models with a titanium case. It is the year of the Radiomir too with for the first time the avaibility of one in the contemporary collection ( Pam 062 ) and two in the special editions ( Pam 065 & 067 ) plus some diamond editions available upon request. For those who find the 44mm too big, the range of the 40mm has been expanded too.

Regarding the new Pam 062, for the SIHH's 10th birthday, the Radiomir returns to the Panerai range : The legend is born again. The new Panerai Radiomir is positioned in the high segment of the market, it opens Panerai's world to both men and women who love active wear, sporting and elegant.

One Luminor seal extreme, the reference Pam 064, with a water-resistance tested of 1000 meters is the star of the sport watches of this SIHH 2000.

The new Luminor GMT Pam 063 replaces two previous models, it have one black dial with 24-hour indication on the outer part of the dial and carry now the traditional plin Panerai bezel in polished steel.

Some Precious Fine Watchmaking Officine Panerai's Diamonds in the Special Edition range seems available upon request only. According to the Panerai staff, regardind these models The legend becomes a gem and the watch of heroes is transformed as a tribute to ladies. With Officine Panerai's diamonds the strength of steel, the sober elegance of white gold, and the powerful construction of the case are associated with the elegance and sophistication of diamonds. Only a few are being made for the public at large and only to order.

It seems that the tritium will be used only in the submersible's dials …....

As said above, the titanium is the star of this Panerai SIHH. There are now in the catalog 5 models in the titanium range, Panerai is the only brand in the luxury / sports segment with 5 models in titanium and 2 in titanium and steel, according to one member of the staff present it is A new way of presenting luxury watches in a high-tech contemporary material. The titanium is an ultra-light material, 100% resistant to the corosion, hypoallergenic and non-magnetic, it have a resistance to tension more than 20% greater than other metals commonly used in watchmaking, It is also for the officine A legitimisation of the military origins of Panerai.

The watches out of the collection this year are :
Pam 004
Pam 009
Pam 023
Pam 026

I had the possibilty to see most of the new models, the diamonds series were not shown. I heard about the possibility of two special editions too … one is supposed to be related to the sea or one Mediteranean regatta and could be offered with a brushed steel case of 40mm, one bracelet and a blue dial when the other could be similar to the Pam 036 with a blue dial and one special caseback, the references are supposed to be Pam 081 and 082 but it is just one rumor …..

Oh, who needs more than one watch anyway? All these Pamerays look the same to me anyway. My TAG with the gold and silver bracelet fits under my sleeve and winds itself, too. And I have that killer Brietling Navitimer too. So there. Still, some day they may come up with one of those old-timey dials with the sticks, arab, and roman indices....and blue hands. How cool would that be. Hope I don't have to wait more than five or six years for that one, although maybe I'll have enough money to buy one then.... dare to dream. Seriously, though, it's amazing what the brand has done in 10 years... Thanks for giving it some perspective J-F. And I missed you!

Now, what are your thoughts about these new models ?
What do you think about the re-introduction of the Radiomir in the current line ?
Does some models like the new GMT will have a long life ?
With a such quantity of 40mm models is 40 the new 44  ?
Are not 22 models in the catalog plus 4 ( maybe 6 ) special editions too much ?
Have some models a high collectability ?
Are your wishes made ?
Could we see in the future one PVD case again ?
What are you expecting for the next SIHH in 2001 ?
What are your predictions for some future models ?
….. ?
Owning or having owned quite a few of the watches, I would most likely make the same choices again,,,,

so what do we conclude?

too many models? seems like there are never too many! for the pocket though, always too many,,,

collectability? perhaps the zerograph for an SE and the 62 are the only ones that were....

Rads? well, no doubt that they are as popular as ever!

The PVD? that's so 90's, lets talk ceramic and composite!

and for SIHH 2001-2010,,,,please, please, please - a 47mm fiddy base


Great work J-F,,,,,,,,,stellar post bijo!

Cheers and best from the holyland,

~Asi~

<h2>Today, we are in January …........................................................ 2000</h2>

Please reply as if we were in 2000, 2001 doesen't exist, many reference either ( that include the 47mm, the faux patina etc … )


I'm just back from Geneva and had the chance to visit the SIHH, spent some time on the Panerai stand and to saw the new models.

We are in the C series.

This year 2000 marks the disapperance of the PVD cases but it marks the apperance of four new models with a titanium case. It is the year of the Radiomir too with for the first time the avaibility of one in the contemporary collection ( Pam 062 ) and two in the special editions ( Pam 065 & 067 ) plus some diamond editions available upon request. For those who find the 44mm too big, the range of the 40mm has been expanded too.

Regarding the new Pam 062, for the SIHH's 10th birthday, the Radiomir returns to the Panerai range : The legend is born again. The new Panerai Radiomir is positioned in the high segment of the market, it opens Panerai's world to both men and women who love active wear, sporting and elegant.

One Luminor seal extreme, the reference Pam 064, with a water-resistance tested of 1000 meters is the star of the sport watches of this SIHH 2000.

The new Luminor GMT Pam 063 replaces two previous models, it have one black dial with 24-hour indication on the outer part of the dial and carry now the traditional plin Panerai bezel in polished steel.

Some Precious Fine Watchmaking Officine Panerai's Diamonds in the Special Edition range seems available upon request only. According to the Panerai staff, regardind these models The legend becomes a gem and the watch of heroes is transformed as a tribute to ladies. With Officine Panerai's diamonds the strength of steel, the sober elegance of white gold, and the powerful construction of the case are associated with the elegance and sophistication of diamonds. Only a few are being made for the public at large and only to order.

It seems that the tritium will be used only in the submersible's dials …....

As said above, the titanium is the star of this Panerai SIHH. There are now in the catalog 5 models in the titanium range, Panerai is the only brand in the luxury / sports segment with 5 models in titanium and 2 in titanium and steel, according to one member of the staff present it is A new way of presenting luxury watches in a high-tech contemporary material. The titanium is an ultra-light material, 100% resistant to the corosion, hypoallergenic and non-magnetic, it have a resistance to tension more than 20% greater than other metals commonly used in watchmaking, It is also for the officine A legitimisation of the military origins of Panerai.

The watches out of the collection this year are :
Pam 004
Pam 009
Pam 023
Pam 026

I had the possibilty to see most of the new models, the diamonds series were not shown. I heard about the possibility of two special editions too … one is supposed to be related to the sea or one Mediteranean regatta and could be offered with a brushed steel case of 40mm, one bracelet and a blue dial when the other could be similar to the Pam 036 with a blue dial and one special caseback, the references are supposed to be Pam 081 and 082 but it is just one rumor …..

Look at those L-dials. Panerai is making progress but aren't they copying of Rolex to replace Tritium with luminova? Can't wait to see how they glow in the dark.

-Pam 065, Radiomir platinium 42mm, 22.000 euros.
-Pam 067, Radiomir zerograph 42mm, 23.000 euros.
-Pam 030, Luminor 44mm with diamonds, 12.750 euros.
-Pam 031, Luminor 44mm with diamonds, 18.000 euros.
-Pam 066, Radiomir 40mm with diamonds, 20.000 euros.
-Pam 068, Radiomir 40mm with diamonds, 16.000 euros.
-Pam 071, Luminor 40mm with diamonds, 24.000 euros.
-Pam 073, Radiomir 40mm with diamonds, 24.000 euros.





Now, what are your thoughts about these new models ?
What do you think about the re-introduction of the Radiomir in the current line ?
Does some models like the new GMT will have a long life ?
With a such quantity of 40mm models is 40 the new 44  ?
Are not 22 models in the catalog plus 4 ( maybe 6 ) special editions too much ?
Have some models a high collectability ?
Are your wishes made ?
Could we see in the future one PVD case again ?
What are you expecting for the next SIHH in 2001 ?
What are your predictions for some future models ?
….. ?
it's the prototype/ shadow for the new PAM 55C that they used to display at the show for the upcoming model released later that year. However, there are 2 unique features on it that regrettably never went on to the full production version - tritium indices (and fat pre-V ones at that) and a coffee coloured dial.



Such a pity the production version had to have luminova. I'm pretty sure (JF will no doubt confirm!) that this is the only tritium base Panerai in a titanium case (the PAM 36 and 40 marinas being the only other tritium dials with titanium cases).

The dial is also interesting in that it seems to be a pre-A dial, but with a coffee coloured lacquer applied over the top of it - it's not black like all the other pre-A dials, and the edging around the numerals is deeper and more noticeable. It was Dirk who first spotted the unusual dial on this watch.

I'll try to dig out some other pics of it in different light to show the dial, but here it is with some other oldies



Cheers

Nice line-up!

plain T!!!

But you're right, even plain T dial would have been much easier to fabricate as a prototype instead of the sunken T- dial. The brown lacquer they used on this dial is about twice as thick as they used on the standard black T- dials when converting from the inherited pre-V dials, you can clearly see how thick it is an the numeral edges, look at the 9 on this photo in normal light, then also the others in direct sunlight:






Cheers and happy new year

I even had Panerai HQ check it out for me to verify it, and they confirmed it's all legit. Although they were a bit perplexed as to how it had gotten out of their possession!

Yes, Ade is a big softy really - hope to meet you in 2012 also

Cheers and happy new year

I would let my "C"72 go for that. And you can't get El Primero Panerai or Daytona today.
