Watch Video Rewind for December 13, 2015

Video control panelWelcome to our regular Sunday feature, Watch Video Rewind, where we post watch related videos from the web to highlight interesting watches or interesting aspects of watch making.  We have a videos on a family investigation into an interesting Panerai, the making of an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetual Calendar, and a very old musical repeater.

Wild Panerai Prototype Unearthed


You know me and Panerais: I love the look, but I think it’s played out. Take a look at this wild-looking Panerai prototype made in 1984.

Panerai Radomir 8 Days GMT


Holy crap. I don’t know how I missed this thing. That’s a Panerai of original manufacture, with a completely Panerai-tastic movement with TWO GMT hands and a zero-set time feature that springs the seconds hand to noon when you set the time. Plus it’s got 8 days reserve in there. And look at the reserve indicator. Amazing.

They’re making 50 of these in platinum – $41,500, if you were innarested – and 200 in white gold – a bit more affordable at $23,200. Come on.


A Man and His Watch

BIG Watch Forum member Nad travelled to Shanghai. Luckily for us, he took about 500 pictures of the flight, his Panerai GMT, and the carpet. It’s actually quite fun.

Introducing the additions to the Panerai Luminor Due collection


Panerai is a brand I’ve long had a fascination with. Even before I knew about the Navy or even Hollywood connections (Stallone!), I just liked the look of the sandwich dial set into a cushion case. Well, Panerai knows how to not mess with a good thing, but still refresh things a bit. So, let’s have a look at what all is part of the new Panerai Luminor Due lineup. A Blog About Panerais, Perhaps?


My next big watch, if I can afford it an my wife doesn’t kill me, could be a nice Panerai. I see all kinds of folks wearing them now, from business folken to rappers, but I still have a soft spot in my heart for the little Italian watch company that could.

That said, here’s a new blogger on the block, Looks good so far and it’s actually unshod territory, so that’s good. Take a gander.


A little music, some wine, you…

Man, this guy is about to totally bone his Panerai.

He Bought All Four…


A fellow over at the Big Watch Forum purchased the following watches, just for kicks, because he’s getting older and does things in fours now:

  • Panerai PAM 194 AKA Subzilla 2500
  • Panerai RADIOMIR 190
  • More power to him.

    My latest acquisitions. I do it in 4 because Im older and my time to wait is shot. [BigWatchForum]

    A Sassy Panerai Split


    Hokey shmokes! I love the Rattrapante concept – a dual chronograph function that alllows for split measurements – and it looks like Panerai did a pretty good job on theirs. Just enough beef and just enough cool. Luckily, Niffko on the Big Watch Forum go one and deigned to show it off.

    I present to you a Panerai Radiomir Tourbillon GMT Ceramica Lo Scientziato Watch


    Ariel “Sass-master 2000” Adams has some great shots of the new Panerai monster. This watch, just for reference, costs more than ten of my cars.

    The watch is made of black ceramic and it uses Panerai’s tourbillon calibre behind a skeletonized face. You’ll notice a second’s hand, an AM/PM indicator, and a GMT hand front and center. It is 48mm wide and limited to 30 pieces.
