In line with what Panerai was doing late last year, Panerai will release more limited edition boutique watches in the coming months. This time, Panerai pays tribute to the United States of America in launching the Los Angeles and New York City watches.
The Los Angeles watch will feature the palm tree-lined Beverly Hills Boulevard while the New York City watch will feature the iconic Statue of Liberty on the case back.
The case backs.
The New York case back.
The Los Angeles case back.
The Los Angeles Limited Edition collection will consist of two watches, the PAM00406 Luminor 1950 10 Days GMT 44 mm and the PAM00416 Luminor Marina 44 mm. The PAM00406 will be limited to 20 pieces while the PAM00416 will be limited to 150 pieces.
The New York Limited Edition will consist of two watches as well. The PAM00407 is a Radiomir 8 Days 45 mm while the PAM00417 is a Luminor Marina 44 mm. These watches will join the PAM00318 Panerai Luminor Marina Logo Brooklyn Bridge Special Edition in celebrating New York.
Again, all these watches are limited edition pieces with the PAM00407 limited to 20 pieces, and the PAM00417 limited to 150 examples.
PAM00406: USD 17,900
PAM00407: USD 12,500
PAM00416: USD 5,100
PAM00417: USD 5,100
With the SIHH just around the corner, I hesitate to see what other Special Edition or Limited Edition Panerai has in store. Yes I do like the brand a lot, but I think of late, there seem to be too many Limited Edition or Special Edition.
