WATCHES THAT STAND THE TEST OF TIME
The Panerai Luminor 1950 Chrono Monopulsante Eight Days GMT PAM00277 is a luxury watch with a name as long as its catalog of features. This is one of the most distinctive and delightfully complex Panerai watches of all time, and as one of only 250 produced, the PAM 277 also counts exceptional rarity among its core assets. Consider how much high-end watchmaking content Panerai has crammed into the 18-karat rose gold Luminor "1950" case; a monopusher chronograph; a GMT hand; an hour hand that sets separately from the minute hand for ease when traveling; a day/night indicator; a stop-seconds functionl an 8-day power reserve: a "fang" power reserve indicator. The bottom line is that no Rolex even comes close to offering this many top-shelf features, and that's before we even broach the subject of exclusivity. Panerai issued 250 examples of the PAM277 as part of the 2007 Special Editions, and they're scattered to the four corners of the world. Moreover, the arresting metallic blue dial, contrasting-stitch brown alligator strap, and 18k rose gold case of the PAM 277 ensures that nobody will mistake this rare bird for a garden-variety Luminor. thewatchbox.com is pleased to offer this Panerai PAM 277 with a comprehensive set of original Officine Panerai factory equipment. Critically, this set includes the original boxes, operator's manual, Special Series certificate, and accessory rubber strap with jeweler's tool for DIY transplants. Video and content by Tim Mosso.
