In this video review, I will be looking at Panerai watches from an angle of a first time buyer. The video should help you know what to look for when trying to buy your first Panerai.
Panerai is a great brand of luxury watches that has a lot of interesting timepieces – a brand that is agreeable normally to watch enthusiasts that are looking for something outside of the traditional.
The company’s most popular model is the Panerai Luminor Marina, which features a 44-mm case, as well as signature feature: the distinctive Panerai crown guard.
One strong recommendation that I would like to make regarding Panerai case sizes is this…If you’re a guy, stay away from models in the 40-mm and 42-mm space. These smaller models look like women’s watches and won’t look good on the wrists guys that care about their watch game!
Another important factor to take into consideration when purchasing a Panerai is the “PAM number.” Do your homework using the different PAM numbers because this number is going to tell you specifically what features the watch you are interested in has. This is important because there are a lot of different variations of each Panerai model.
Some of my favorite Panerai watches are the PAM 104, the PAM 005 and the PAM 441 Ceramica, a watch that is difficult to find and one that looks a bit understated – which is great to improve anyone’s watch game.
And how about the best Panerai model…the Top Gun?
For me, it has to be the rose gold PAM 289 timepiece. Even though it is not the most expensive, and it’s certainly much less expensive than tourbillons, it is an exquisite watch for anyone who loves nice watches.
Each of the more affordable Panerai models have one or more distinct features – but no one single watch (unless you go to the very high end ones) sports every single feature in the Panerai realm. For example, some Panerai models have sub-seconds and a clear case back, but may be manual with no date. Another model might be automatic with a date and sub-seconds, but lacking a clear case back.
While some who prefer other high end watch brands may not like this, it is actually what makes the more popular models of Panerai interesting. Collectors can, and frequently do, accumulate different models with unique features to sport them at different times and with different purposes.
Another great thing many watch fans like about the Panerai brand is the high degree of flexibility it offers when it comes to being able to use different and even exotic straps with the same watch. It is actually very easy to change straps and it is almost like having different watches in one.
If you’re interested in buying your first Panerai, make sure to do your homework carefully in order to select the model that is right for you.
