Watches and Wonders 2015: Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Titanio DLC Special Editions with pricing

by Nick Gould on September 30, 2015

Watches and Wonders 2015 in Hong Kong has officially gotten underway.   The first releases hot off the press from Panerai.  Paneristi get excited for two new Luminor 1950 limited editions.  The PAM 617 and PAM 629.

The case with the iconic lever device protecting the crown was designed in 1950.  Hence the number “1950” in the name.   The PAM127 known to collectors as the “Fiddy” was released in 2002 and was a special edition which was faithful in every detail to the original model.

For Watches and Wonders 2015, Panerai have released 2 new special editions of the historic 1950 case.  The references PAM 617 and PAM 629 Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Titanio DLC.   Both references have 47mm cases made from Titanium and they have been coated in Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC). The date “1950” is engraved on the lever locking the winding crown for both models.  Water Resistance for both models is 10 Bar (~100 metres).

The year 1950 engraved into the lever of the crown protecting device of the new Panerai Luminor 1950 3 Days Titanio DLC References PAM 617 and PAM 629.

The reference PAM 617 features a black dial with classic Panerai design, numerals at 12, 3 and 9 o’clock and baton markers.  The running seconds is also located at the 9 o’clock position and the OP logo is placed at the 6 o’clock position.  The traditional sandwich dial construction with vintage coloured Luminova completes the look.

The reference PAM 629 comes with a black dial and combination of Roman and Arabic numerals and graphic markers; this variant is known as the California dial and is much sought-after by collectors because it reproduces the design of the Panerai watch in history, the Radiomir of 1936.  The PAM 629 also uses vintage coloured Luminova for the dial and hands.
