Why We Love it

While you won't see many contemporary Panerai models listed on our site, there are a few truly impressive Neo-Vintage examples that we just love, and this is one of them.

With beautifully clean lines, a manual winding movement, and the most classic elements of Luminor design, the PAM 2A is is everything a modern Panerai should be.

Dating from 1998, this first series Vendôme example uses Tritium luminous material on the dial and handset, and has developed a rich patina making it instantly stand out from virtually everything Panerai has offered since. The 44mm steel Luminor case is in fantastic condition overall and comes with its inner box, screwdriver, and a spare Panerai branded strap.

Panerai has one of the most vocally enthusiastic communities amongst wristwatch collectors, so if you're curious what its all about, why not try this beauty out and you'll know right away!

Overall Condition

The case is in fantastic condition overall showing only faint wear consistent with age and use. Bezel has been professionally refinished. Black luminous dial is in excellent condition with printed Tritium indices showing even patination. Tritium handset.

Brand Story

+
Giovanni Panerai founded his eponymous business in Florence in 1860 and quickly began making strides in the development of military and timekeeping equipment. In 1916, Panerai developed a radium/zinc sulfide powder mixture which he encased in glass vessels, the invention of which would form the basis of the “Radiomir” line of watches so beloved by collectors today.

In the 1930s and 1940s, Panerai supplied various units of the Italian Navy — including the Decima Mas, which carried out special forces-type raids on Allied shipping using small submersibles during the Second World War — with watches. These oversized timepieces, which were some of the world’s first dedicated military watches, featured stainless steel cases and Cortebert-made movements produced for Rolex. (Their distinctive, glowing “sandwich” dials were yet another Panerai invention, and continue to feature heavily in the brand’s modern catalog.)

Following the War, Panerai developed a new, tritium-based luminescent technology it dubbed “Luminor,” which replaced the radium-based Radiomir. A new case design featuring a bridge and locking mechanism to increase water resistance accompanied this luminous compound, resulting in one of the most iconic case designs still in production today.

In 1972, following the death of Guido Panerai’s son, Guiseppe, the firm was taken over by engineer Dino Zei, its name changed to Officine Panerai S.r.L. The company, which had never before produced its military designs for the civilian market, reissued three of them in 1993 to much acclaim. Panerai was subsequently purchased by the Vendome Group — the precursor to the modern Richemont Group — in 1997, and remains within its portfolio of luxury brands today. Its production of both Luminor and Radiomir-inspired designs firmly reestablished, Panerai continues to introduce new models that include complicated, in-house movements and unique case materials, such as its patented Carbotech.
