The dial includes Panerai’s signature sandwich structure and is a small occupied by the brand’s standards, using a date and magnifier at 3 o’clock, an “8 Days” print in 6 o’clock that proudly proclaims the movement’s outstandingly long power book, and a small sub seconds dial at 9 o’clock. The dial is a deep matte green as well as the markers and hands comprise beige Super-LumiNova. It’s a handy power reserve of 192 hours (8 days) and features a fast zero-reset system for easy and precise setting of the time. The motion is visible via a display caseback and a neat thing about it’s the fact that it includes a discreet power reserve indicator on the rear of the motion. Water resistance is 100m and the watch comes with a dark brown strap stamped with the OP emblem of Panerai.Next upward, we have the PAM 736 Panerai Watches For Sale Philippines Replica Radiomir 1940 3 Days Acciaio, which relies upon the PAM 514. This comes in Panerai’s newer 47mm-wide Radiomir 1940s-style cushion case, which has more conventional incorporated lugs. Such as the PAM 735, the PAM 736 includes a deep matte green sandwich dial with beige Super-LumiNova. Should you ask me, I’d rather not have the date display, however I know a lot of people who would enjoy its practicality.The PAM 736 is powered by Panerai’s Calibre P.3000, an in-house hand-wound motion that’s also found in a number of other hand-wound Panerai models. The Calibre P.3000 also has the capability to advance its hour hand by one hour increments — quite useful when traveling across time zones. Water resistance is 100m, which is fitting for a Panerai contemplating its dip watch roots.

Having supported Mike Horn on three previous expeditions, Panerai is again part of of South African adventurer’s latest excursion. Pole2Pole is Horn’s two-year journey around the world with the Luminor Submersible 1950 3 Days GMT (PAM00719) on his wrist.

Horn is a bona fide action man who once had his fingertips amputated because of frostbite, best known for circling the Earth along the equator in 2001 – with no motorised transport.
