WATCHES THAT STAND THE TEST OF TIME
http://www.thewatchbox.com The Panerai Luminor Marina Black Seal PAM 466 continues Officine Panerai's tradition of honoring its boutique host cities with exclusive commemorative models. The PAM 466 - one of only 75 manufactured - pays tribute to the Panerai Palm Beach, Florida boutique at 150 Worth Avenue. On the case back, the Luminor Marina PAM 466 features a detailed engraving of the famed West Palm Beach thoroughfare on which the Boutique is nestled. Palm Trees, storefronts, and open Florida sky are depicted in a three-dimensional engraving that jumps from the metal thanks to uncanny realism. A fully-polished case, bezel, and pin buckle complete the sunny SoFla ambiance of this upscale commemorative Luminor. A vintage treatment has been given to the dial and natural calf leather strap of the PAM 466. The dial features the signature Panerai "dirty dial" vintage patina that simulates the aged radium hands and indexes of vintage Panerai combat dive watches. The strap is treated to mirror the appearance of a weather leather survivor of military field work. Inside the gleaming 44mm steel Luminor case, a rugged manual-wind Panerai caliber keeps the time to COSC Swiss Chronometer standards. With exceptional accuracy and durability, this Unitas 6497-based watch caliber continues the tradition of tank-like pocket watch movements in Panerai watches. thewatchbox.com, the world's foremost pre-owned Panerai authority, is proud to offer this 1-of-75 Luminor Marina PAM 466 with a full Panerai factory set and all special edition accessories.
