Panerai has released (or will release) 2 more models under its historic collection. It is rumoured that the models will be available in September 2013. Anyway, some have seen the models in SIHH 2013, but it was never made official by Panerai. The models?
PAM00510 Luminor Marina 8 Days. It is nice to see Panerai return to the white/ green lume instead of using the Ecru lume.
PAM00511 Luminor Marina 8 Days Oro Rosso. This watch will feature the Ecru lume which matches the red gold colour of the case.
Oh, both models are 44mm in diameter.
Both watches will feature Panerai new in-house P.5000 8 Days hand wind movement.
The Caliber P.5000 features an 8 days power reserve. It comes in at 15 3/4 lignes and is a hand wind movement. It has 21 jewels and beats at 21,600 A/h. It is a basic 3 hand movement.
It looks like Panerai could be moving away from its reliance on the Unitas 64XX movement. At the moment, it looks like the PAM00510 will run together with the PAM00111 which is very similar to the PAM00510. The difference being the in-house movement and the legend 8 Days on the dial. The PAM00511 will feature a polished crown guard unlike the PAM00510 which will have a brushed crown guard much like the PAM00111.
The PAM00510 is expected to retail around USD 7,300 while the PAM00511 at USD 26,500.
